The Party’s Over is the debut studio album by British art rock band Talk Talk, originally released in July 1982 via EMI Records.

Talk Talk were an English Art Rock band, active from 1981 until their breakup in 1992. Initially part of the New Wave music scene, their early hit singles include “It's My Life” (1984), “Such a Shame” (1984) and “Life's What You Make It” (1985/1986). Talk Talk moved away from New Wave towards more experimental music in the late-1980s and are widely credited with helping develop and influence the "Post-Rock" genre in their final two albums, Spirit of Eden and Laughing Stock.

For their debut album The Party’s Over, the band chose to work with EMI Records’ in-house producer Colin Thurston. Mark Hollis picked Thurston because of his involvement in David Bowie’s Heroes album. Thurston was also Duran Duran’s producer at that time, and the production influences evident on the first two Duran Duran albums are also seen on the Talk Talk album.

Despite the similarities with their record label stable mates, Talk Talk deliver a charming debut album with some enjoyable music, even if it was not ground-breaking or innovative. This would become much more evident on their later albums, such as the ground breaking album Spirit of Eden (1988).

The band broke through with the single “Talk Talk” and followed up with further chart success with “Today”.

The album gave the band moderate success in the UK with the album reaching #21 on the charts. The album reached #8 in New Zealand and #94 in Australia.

Check out the tracks:  Talk Talk”; “Mirror Man”; “Today”: and “The Party’s Over”.
