    Following Spirit of Eden (1988), bassist Paul Webb left the group, which reduced Talk Talk to the duo of Mark Hollis and Lee Harris. Like Spirit of Eden the album featured improvised instrumentation from a large ensemble of musicians. The demanding sessions were marked by Mark Hollis' perfectionist tendencies and desire to create a suitable recording atmosphere. Engineer Phill Brown stated that the album, like its predecessor, was "recorded by chance, accident, and hours of trying every possible overdub idea." The band split up following its release, effectively making Laughing Stock their last official release.

    Of "Ascension Day", Pitchfork's Jess Harvell said it "remains the band's most chaotic and vicious song, like a small jazz combo being elbowed aside by a noise-rock band, with a climactic barrage of drumming that falls on your ears like an avalanche before the audible tape-splice cuts it dead". https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/15957-laughing-stock-mark-hollis/
