Laughing Stock is the fifth and final studio album by British band Talk Talk, released in 1991. Following their previous release Spirit of Eden (1988), bassist Paul Webb left the group, which reduced Talk Talk to the duo of entalist Mark Hollis and drummer Lee Harris. Talk Talk then acrimoniously left EMI and signed to the jazz-based Verve Records, and recorded Laughing Stock at London's Wessex Sound Studios with producer Tim Friese-Greene from September 1990 to April 1991.

Laughing Stock is British rock band, Talk Talk’s fifth and final album and continues with the post-rock .
Laughing Stock is British rock band, Talk Talk’s fifth and final album and continues with the post-rock musical style that was seen in the LP’s precursor, Spirit of Eden. Laughing Stock is noted for its minimalist, quiet nature in comparison to their previous album and deals with themes concerning Christianity and death. In terms of style, the album draws influences from jazz, avant-garde, folk, and even noise music as bandleader Mark Hollis wanted to achieve an honest sound" as if the band’s in the front room with you.

If we took Laughing Stock out of 1991 and put it in 2007, it would probably still have the same pioneering effect, because hardly anyone managed to follow their example with any sort of success and their influence is all too veiled today. Many bands cite them as key influence, but I hear no tremolo picking, delay pedals, or long, unwavering periods of ambience, the characteristics defining today’s post rock, on Laughing Stock. Instead, this album has a subtle jazz influence, filled with lush organ tones, brilliant, articulate guitar sounds, and sensible grooves.
