Q (7/99, p.151) - Included in Q's Best Chill-Out Albums of All Time - "...introverted, career-knackered album....[Mark Hollis(lead singer)] suggested it's best to be listened to 'in a calm mood, with no distractions': succinct advice for all great chill-out albums."
Q (2/04, p.119) - 3 stars out of 5 - "With more pregnant pauses, splashes of colour and layers of sleepy angst, it's a beautiful-sounding record..."
Q (Magazine) (p.110) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "SPIRIT OF EDEN was a masterpiece....Its ebbing and flowing atmospherics and explosive dynamics had fare more in common with Miles Davis's more out-there works than, say, former peers Duran Duran."
Uncut (magazine) (p.98) - "[P]art of the enduring appeal of this uniquely beautiful work is its refusal to yield its secrets, compelling you to return over and over again."

Talk Talk includes: Mark Hollis (vocals, guitar, piano, organ); Tim Friese-Greene (guitar, piano, harmonium, organ); Robbie McIntosh (12-string guitar, dobro); Mark Feltham (harmonica); Henry Lowthar (trumpet);
Paul Webb (electric bass); Lee Harris (drums); Martin Ditcham (percussion).
Additional personnel includes: Choir Of Chelmsford.
As the album opens, you almost think that you have put on a Miles Davis album by mistake. The strains of trumpeter Henry Lowther are certainly convincing. Mark Hollis and his band moved on from the New Romantic tag and certainly produced a much more varied and ambitious album. 'The Rainbow' is a startling opener, and after Lowther's trumpet solo is a spooky harmonica solo from ex-Nine Below Zero ace, Mark Feltham. Other cameos convince the listener that Talk Talk have grown. The choice of musicians such as Nigel Kennedy, and the marvellous string bassist Danny Thompson, can do nothing but enhance their reputation. The City of Chelmsford choir are the icing on the cake.
