Talk Talk - Laughing Stock
I know, it's not November yet... close enough. This is the first LOTDR "Album of the Month" selection and will be regular blog feature. If you follow the blog and want to pick up the month's pick, we will be offering 15% off to blog subscribers.
I decided on a reissue for this month's pick, partially because there aren't many new releases knocking my socks off and because this album is pretty darn spectacular. Originally released in 1991 (vinyl - only in the UK) this was a continuation of the experimental direction they started with 'Spirit of Eden.' Sparse, haunting, ambient and completely underrated. Bands like Bark Psychosis, Disco Inferno and even Radiohead, were HUGELY influenced by this brilliant album. Easily, one of the finest records of the 1990's.
