Mark Hollis’s only solo album after Talk Talk is a minimalist masterpiece. I would love to eventually find this amount of space and control in the music I make. I could’ve picked any song from this album as evidence, but I’d forgotten how good this one is, probably because it’s so understated, even on a record of numerous slow wonders. Just before the two-minute mark, Hollis’s voice does something unexpected and the song begins to shift subtly before returning to its sparse, pastoral groove. Restraint enables release and it is such a powerful device.
