Limited vinyl LP pressing of the fifth and final album from the British band. Talk Talk's Laughing Stock, the group's 1991 album, took a year to make, and yet it has required decades to fully appreciate. Following up on the abstract Spirit Of Eden, which sufficiently alienated Pop fans of the band's earlier material, Laughing Stock took spaces in recorded music to new extremes, with layers of silence breathing through strings, woodwinds, percussion and Mark Hollis's delicate vocals. The record exists as one complete thought, albeit with jagged diversions and tangents. Hollis's and producer Tim Friese-Greene's goal from the beginning was to create an album that completely enveloped the listener.
