It's My Life the album and song is pretty great as well. In my initial foray into this band, my expectation was for an 80s synth version of 70s symphonic prog and Colour of Spring came closest to that but I still wasn't getting hooked like with Tears for Fears, so I initially just kept It's My Life the song as a single. Unlike with my expectation of Molly Hatchet to be a southern rock version of Iron Maiden which will never be fulfilled, Talk Talk, at least on Colour of Spring and It's My Life fills the niche to have a new wave 80s synth pop band be symphonic proggy in 70s style.
After listening to some Brian Eno on Saturday, I finally had the hook to try Talk Talk again and now I love their 1st 3 albums, but their even more critically acclaimed last 2 I still can't get into. They still sound like a muted acoustic jazz version of Cure's Disintegration without the hooks. Laughing Stock I will give it that the songs are more distinct than Spirit of Eden. I've tried listening along to both Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock multiple times the last 2 days while reading along to their Wikipedia and Allmusic entry and they're still not hitting the spot. Maybe I'll get into them some day as I'm not totally dissing them, but they definitely don't have the abrasive hooks and melodies a way better example of an intentionally difficult album that Kid A has.
