I'm only aware of their hits like Life's what you make it and It's my life
Would they be worth getting into?

Thought I'd bump this. It's a good time to be a Talk Talk fan. The Colour of Spring and Spirit of Eden are being re-released on vinyl/dvd packages next week and there is also a special tribute album and book set for release next month. Although the full list of artists covering their songs has yet to be announced, there is a website set up which gives us a few hints of what's coming... http://spiritoftalktalk.com/
There's also lots of great stuff about them on the Talk Talk & Mark Hollis Facebook page.
Having been intrigued by the band through the late 80s, I bought Laughing Stock on tape in 1991 and I haven't looked back since. Their music is joyful and spellbinding. For those who haven't discovered Talk Talk yet I urge you to do so right now!

Colour of Spring & Spirt of Eden - both sublime albums.
Their drummer Lee Harris is featured on Bark Psychosis' Codename: Dustsucker album. Another great album that really made me appreciate all the more Harris' contribution to these 2 Talk Talk albums. If you're into this era Talk Talk do check out this BP album.

Superb band, lived in The Netherlands for a while and '' Such a Shame'' is still big on commercial radio there and Germany.
Only got majorly into them in the last few years, was a schoolkid when they were out first time round, whilst knowing of them, back then you didn't have all the YouTube means of digging into bands musical archives like youngsters do now.
Can't see them reforming though, looks like Mark Hollis has turned his back on music

Spirit of Eden is an excellent ambitious album. Need to get Laughing Stock.

I only have Spirit of Eden on MP3. Might be worth a CD purchase...
