Talk Talk’s I believe in you

Talk Talk are one of my favourite bands from the 80s. They were extremely successful with hits such as It’s My Life, Such a Shame and Life’s What You Make It. My two favourite albums, however, are their final two records.

The commercial impact of Spirit of Eden (1988) and Laughing Stock (1992) was comparatively moderate, but their latter, more experimental, style brought forth some of the most timeless pieces of music. The track I Believe In You is from Spirit of Eden and was one of Talk Talk’s last music videos. It was released without the band’s consent, followed by a lawsuit that eventually led to the band’s departure from EMI. It’s beautiful all the same. Like the rest of the album.
