Can this LP really be 30 years old?!  Like every great album, it knows no time boundaries.

Of course, you big dumbass.....  This is Mark Feltham playing here who also plays on Steven Wilson's latest effort To the Bone.

A big thank you to  Ben_D_Wire for pointing that out.

Thanks for the tip! I'll have to get that CD! {#Cheers}

Solanus, what about headphones?  

 
Technically I'm supposed to keep an ear out for the phones, so that puts a damper on playing it loud. But I would guess the boss would frown upon me more with my feet up and my eyes closed, completely focused on the music. I need to at least keep up the facade of getting work done.

I always have mixed feelings when this song comes on when I'm at work. Part of it is the fight between having a nice little break from work and getting pulled out of my groove if I'm on a roll. The bigger issue is that the best way to appreciate this song is kicked back, eyes closed, and the music LOUD so you can hear everything going on in it, and that is sort of frowned upon within my cubicle farm.

The song has a good front part but has an awkward transition and ending to it, like they couldn't decide how to end it, so they just do.{#Ask}

No, I think I've heard it all 4 times in the past 30 days.  Maybe you're not listening frequently enough.

Among musicians (some of my best friends are musicians) this track and album are regarded as genius. I didn't see, hear or feel what they meant at first... but do now.

Hmmm.   I will have to listen more carefully next time.  12 hour road trip coming up so I will have lots of opportunity.

It is a slow burn and does require patience, but the payoff can be phenomenal. Or you just don't like it - oh well.

I guess he must be controlling his own destiny; he's been essentially retired from music for about 20 years.  He sure did some cool stuff though.

Played 4 times in 30 days. You must really hate this! Once a week clearly doesn't qualify as overplayed.

There's a character named Jimmy Finn in "Life on the Mississippi" by Samuel Clemens aka Mark Twain. Don't know if it's the same or not. Plausible. Finn is a prisoner that Mark Twain encounters....

Bill, I've said this before, you gotta check out the soundtrack for "Siesta." Marcus Miller, Miles Davis. It's magic.

If you click on the picture of the album on this page, you should be able to see the number of times this got played in the last 30 days.

Mark Hollis has an amazing voice. I wish he would share his gifts more with the world and make more music.  

I love the last 2 albums but Talk Talk's earlier music is also great.  Especially love the song Renee from It's my Life.

I wanted so hard to get into Talk Talk, but something keeps me back. Just when I think 'ok, I've got it', it begins to flow and then abruptly stops. :-/ Always leaves me wanting something more. Lack of hooks I guess.

Somewhat, but the sound of a muted trumpet can often make people think of Miles Davis.
