Talk Talk: Laughing In Eden (A Re-Imagined Album)
It's a challenging album, one I don't pull out often, and I wondered if I could play with it a little to give it a (marginally) more approachable vibe. So I distilled the album down a bit--cutting a song, making a few edits to shorten the tunes' running length, and cross-fading the tracks for flow. And then I stretched it out to an hour by working in some b-sides and a few tracks from the follow-up record, 1991's even quieter Laughing Stock, as well as Hollis' lone, self-titled solo album from 1998 (again shortening and cross-fading the songs).
It works pretty well (though, frustratingly, Laughing Stock never got the same remastering treatment as Spirit of Eden, so I had to play with the levels to get it to sync nicely).
