2012 EU reissue on 180g LP+ bonus DVD=Talk Talk's third album The Colour of Spring remains the band's most successful, charting in multiple countries thanks to the international hit single "Life's What You Make It." Deviating from the synthesized pop of prior releases with more complex arrangements, elicit rhythms and hypnotic grooves, yet not as ambient in nature as subsequent works, The Colour Of Spring finds the band at an artistic/commercial happy medium and all the better for it!

English art-pop legends Talk Talk’s classic albums The Colour of Spring (1986) and Spirit of Eden (1988) are being reissued on 180g heavyweight vinyl cut from the original analog master tapes, together with a DVD featuring the album delivered as a 96kHz/24 bit LPCM stereo mix. In addition, the accompanying DVDs for both albums also feature one extra bonus track. In the case of Colour Of Spring, included here is the B-side "It’s Getting Late In The Evening."

"For many bands, transitional albums are most valuable for establishing context between distinct phases of a career arc. Talk Talk's The Colour of Spring, however, stands as one of the band's most satisfying standalone albums, even though it's a clear bridge between their origins in new wave and the post-rock of their later albums. Songs like 'Life's What You Make of It' and 'I Don't Believe in You' strike a perfect and often beautiful balance between Talk Talk's extraordinary gifts for memorable pop melodies with a newfound experimental bent that finds them replacing the synths and guitars of the era with flourishes of organ, sax, and even a children's choir. - Jonathan Keefe/Slant

 With It's My Life, Talk Talk proved that they could pull off an entire album of strong material. With The Colour of Spring, they took it one step further, moving to a near-concept song cycle, following the emotional ups and downs of relationships and pondering life in general. Musically, they built on the experimental direction of the previous album with interesting rhythms, sweeping orchestration, complex arrangements, and even a children's chorus to create an evocative, hypnotic groove. Though the songs were catchier on the earlier efforts and the ambient experimentation was more fully achieved later on, The Colour of Spring succeeded in marrying the two ideas into one unique sound for their most thoroughly satisfying album.
