This is one of my favorite albums. As I've said before on the Forum, I'm a sucker for power pop. And one of my favorite bass players is Kathy Valentine. It's a good thing lasers don't wear out CDs, because this is one of my most played albums. SebastichThe Cat 3LP, RickH and 14 others like this. Location: Alexandria VA. Great album! I liked Go-go's prior to - saw them open for the Police in their peak run of popularity circa early - but "TS" was the only album I really enjoyed.
This was one of the very first CDs I ever bought back in early OatsdadApr 20, Location: Ottawa. My first and on LP and still favourite Go Go's album. Not a clunker on that record.

Talk Show was the band's third studio album they only ever made fourand artistically, if not financially, I think it was the high point in their career. How do I describe what I love about the album? Should I talk about Belinda Carlisle's throaty vocals? The driving rhythms? The strong vocal harmonies? All of these are important, but in the end, I think it's mostly about the songs. There are definite highlights here, but there's also a consistency of quality throughout that I think was lacking in the first two albums.
It takes a relatively simple style of music and just does it really well. We're talking 10 songs worth of delightful '80s pop punk that will as likely as not put a smile on your face. And for me, that's a pretty good thing.
