    Talk Talk includes: Mark Hollis (vocals, guitar, melodica, piano, organ, Mellotron); Tim Friese-Greene (piano, organ, Mellotron).

    The midway point between Talk Talk's synth-pop beginnings and its experimental ambient-jazz finale, THE COLOUR OF SPRING presents a band in the midst of radical reinvention. Remarkably, though, this 1986 outing doesn't carry the air of an awkward transitional album; in fact, it's arguably the British group's finest and most assured record.
    Working closely with producer/multi-instrumentalist Tim Friese-Greene, Talk Talk takes a sizable step away from its glossy early work, opting for a warm, organic sound that perfectly complements frontman Mark Hollis's plaintive vocals and pensive, existential lyrics. While THE COLOUR OF SPRING features a handful of wonderful pop moments, most notably the uplifting opener, "Happiness Is Easy," and the surging hit "Life's What You Make It," the album also offers up delicate compositions such as the hauntingly gorgeous "April 5th" and the achingly spare "Chameleon Day." Although Hollis and Friese-Greene are clearly SPRING's sonic architects, bassist Paul Webb and drummer Lee Harris ably anchor the melodies, leaving room for guest musicians such as Steve Winwood, who offers crucial but surprisingly low-key support on organ. This is a snapshot of an ensemble deftly balancing art and accessibility, and it remains an under-the-radar classic.
