First released in 1998, the last album from the sadly missed Mark Hollis was originally set to be a Talk Talk album, scheduled to follow up 1991’s “Laughing Stock”. Described by engineer Phil Brown as “open, restful and at times fantastically beautiful”, Hollis’ only solo effort is quite the opposite of the dark and claustrophobic direction of Talk Talk’s final album. Entirely self-produced, the record takes Talk Talk’s pared back, emotive intimacy further into yet more minimal, private territory, of sometimes almost unbearable intensity. A complex, compelling last dispatch from an indisputable genius.
