Spirit of Eden is the fourth studio album by English band Talk Talk, released in 1988 on Parlophone Records. The songs were written by vocalist Mark Hollis and producer Tim Friese-Greene and the album was compiled from a lengthy recording process at London's Wessex Studios between 1987 and 1988. Often working in darkness, the band recorded many hours of improvised performances that drew on elements of rock, blues, jazz, ambient, dub, and classical music.
Talk Talk’s six-year career as a commercially viable band was, at that very moment, dead in the water. Which was odd, because Hollis and Friese-Greene were convinced Spirit of Eden was going to sell four million copies. When they finished the psychotic, 11-month recording process, they were sure this interior, fully realized album would go platinum just like their third album, 1986’s The Colour of Spring-a fragile, autumnal collection of synth-pop shaded with knotty impressionism. Spirit of Eden was the great inhale of religious feeling, one rock and pop music had been expelling for years and years. The thrill and stasis of a held breath carry the album from beginning to end. Take my freedom, Hollis sings on the closing hymn, as the band uses its last bit of thrust before drifting away.
So Talk Talk embarked on a totally non commercial direction with Spirit Of Eden and immediately it yielded their best album IMO of their entire catalogue. That album - 'Out of Season' by Beth Gibbons and Rustin' Man - is something akin to Talk Talk in that it largely relies on acoustic instruments, though it blends in elements of the British folk revival of the late 60s, such as Bert Jansch and particularly Nick Drake as well as some restrained nods to soul, jazz and Barry-esque soundtracks.

When Talk Talk released Spirit Of Eden 30 years ago yesterday, they joined those ranks. Led by Mark Hollis and the band’s co-writer/producer Tim Friese-Greene, they embarked on one of the most radical reinventions to ever occur in alternative music. From 1982 to 1991, Talk Talk released five albums. On an album this subtle, charges of pretension are obviously going to arise as much as accolades. Spirit Of Eden is an art-rock album so unflinching and unapologetic that it still registers as avant-garde today. Hollis, perhaps alluding to the boundary-exploding jazz albums of the late ’60s, might’ve had a point in arguing that Spirit Of Eden wouldn’t have been regarded as so shocking 20 years earlier.
