Talk Talk – Live At Montreux 1986 (Eagle DVD)
C Sound: B- Extras: D Concert: B
great underrated New Wave bands of the 1980s, Talk Talk was better than many
gave them credit for at the time and thanks to No Doubt’s fun remake of the
band’s classic It’s My Life, new
interest in the band has resurfaced.
Eagle has added to the fun by releasing Talk Talk – Live At Montreux 1986, a surprisingly good concert that
runs about 90 minutes and show the band at their best with some fine playing,
singing and material that should have done better in the U.S. than it did.

enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is from higher quality analog video of the time, so it
is going to be soft and have limit issues, but color is good just the
same. Fortunately, the DTS 5.1, PCM
16/48 2.0 Stereo and even Dolby Digital 5.1 mixes are not bad, but none can
hide the age of the audio. It does not
sound too bad, with the DTS and PCM bringing out the best with the source
available and Mark Hollis’ vocals do sound very good as a result. Unfortunately, there are no extras.
