Ian Curnow adds "we always had to go all around the houses to get next door, just in case there was anything that turned up on the other side. It's My Life was a top 5 hit album in several European countries, thanks to the big international success of its singles notably " Such a Shame " , and was particularly successful in Switzerland, the Netherlands and Germany where the album peak-charted at numbers 2, 3 and 4, respectively.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For the album by Sash! It is not to be confused with Dum Dum Girls. In those days, there were not many interesting stuff going on in my musical life, and I have to say that I have listened to many bands representing this style of music. And to be honest, "Talk Talk" was one of the best one available.
It is true to say that listening to this whole album might lead to a certain boredom feeling. The melancholic and uniform tone of voice of Holis might even increase the feeling. Ambient at times "Tomorrow Started" , this work is somewhat too much of the s h ame. The B-side of this album was really not on par. On a prog scale, this album is worth one star. But since I rated "In Rock" with five, I will just consider this album on a pure and global musical angle.
Half of it is good, half of it is weak. Two stars. Such A Shame and It's My Life are two true Talk Talk classics and there isn't really much more to say about them since you've probably already quite familiar with these compositions! Having said that there are a few other nice moments like the songs Does Caroline Know? Unfortunately all is not hunky dory with It's My Life since it also features some extremely dated material like It's You and Call In The Night Boy which make this album pretty average to say the least.
The album barely fits into the good, but non-essential category although the highlights definitely manage to spare it from a complete disaster. The band had grown up since the debut and had become more serious about everything, especially composition and production are a huge step up. They do not only have a sincere deep melancholy, but also the musicianship and arrangements are much more sophisticated then anything they had done so far.
This has nothing ado with synth-pop anymore. Things were turning in exciting directions for Talk Talk. Their professionalism and integrity would make them do another big jump ahead on the next album.
