It would seem that Talk Talk have quite a large fanbase as this live collection follows on from 1998's 'Asides and Bsides' collection. However, like that release, this recording offers some high quality tracks but concentrates on a live concert at Hammersmith from 1986. This was the year that Talk Talk began to be taken seriously and they managed to shed their commercial (but oddly melancholic) image to produce more thoughtful compositions. The 8 songs offered here are split between the 1984 album 'It's My Life' and 1986's 'The Colour Of Spring' and the selections from these albums is pretty faultless. 'Life Is What You Make It', 'Living In Another World', 'It's My Life' and 'Such A Shame' prove that, at the very least, Talk Talk were an excellent singles act and in the live environment they sound rich and haven't dated at all unlike so much of the cheap tackiness of other '80s acts. 'Tomorrow Started' and 'Renee' are powerful album tracks which have that familiar yearning quality found on their best work. Talk Talk would encounter even more critical acclaim on their next two albums but this set documents the pinnacle of their career.
