Each day, during November, we will focus on one album.
To rate the albums we rate each track on the album as either 3 (Outstanding), 2 (Good), 1 (ok) and 0 (Hate it). Those points are totalled up and then divided by the maximum points the album could get (EG 10 tracks would equal 30 points, 10 x 3). Then times the figure by 100 and that gives you your percentage rating. This is a very good indicator of how you rate an album.
For todays classic album, we go back to 1982 and the debut album by Talk Talk, called "The Party's Over". Talk Talk were a very underrated band and this album demonstrates why. It is a true synthpop classic with not a single weak track on the album.
Our track recommendations are the the tracks "Today", "It's So Serious" and "Another Word". All the tracks on the album we rate as 3 (Outstanding) or 2 (Good). Pretty much a flawless album and if you don't have it in your music collection, get it, you won't be disappointed.
Surprisingly this album only made number 21 in the UK albums chart.
Our overall rating for this album is 77/100
