5.0 out of 5 stars Love It Or Loathe It, A Sound Like No Other September 4, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Scott Walker has one of the most compelling, unforgettable baritone voices in popular music. Marc Almond put it best when he said that Scott could sing three blind mice and make it seem like the only song in the world and, as David J added, it would also seem like the saddest song in the world. Though it's one of my personal favorites, the lush orchestral music on this album will not appeal to everyone. It's a style largely derived from cabaret performers like Tom Jones and Engelbert Humperdinck and the production mimics Phil Spector's classic "wall of sound" minus the horns and background singers. That said, the lyrics tell the strangely fascinating stories of vagrants, transsexuals, mercenaries and other marginalized figures. In recent years, Scott's words and music have become far more abstract. But here his narratives, with a few exceptions, make the Velvet Underground seem tame.

5.0 out of 5 stars The "bottomless baritone" April 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I don't think mainstream post-1950's pop music has found a better crooner than Scott Walker. His voice seems to be capable of moving high and hanging low and losing neither its resonance nor its pathos. This is in evidence on this album in particular. I am not sure this material could have been covered effectively by anyone other than this oddly melodramatic voice that takes itself so seriously yet comes across with few (if any) pretensions. Is that even possible, really? The large orchestral arrangements coupled with the social commentaries seem perfectly executed and never drip with the irrelevance so much mainstream over-the-top pop seems afflicted with lately. This album is a highly serious affair and what is so wonderful is there is nothing tongue-in-cheek about it. Walker appears to care deeply about what he is saying and you feel as you listen (I did at least) that this music matters. Can't music be important and not simply because it is entertaining?

If you enjoy Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra and Leonard Cohen and Judy Collins, this may just be the perfect synthesis for you. Walker's voice can run the gamut from rock to pop to folk to easy listening but he's never trapped in any one genre and neither, for that matter, are his songs.

Five stars. Pop music does not get any better than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scott's most consistent 1960s album March 25, 2007
By TUCO H.
Format:Audio CD
You want to know if you'll like Scott Walker? First of all, you have to like and appreciate what's called an 'over-the-top' performance style that's sometimes very sincere and earnest to the point of being laughably pretentious and sometimes done with tongue-in-cheek for effect. Either way, serious or not, when the song works, the over-the-top style doesn't just deliver the goods, it literally hits it out of the park. You have to appreciate very weird sensibilities that might seem somewhat square or unhip at first. Know for instance that Scott is the only artist I know of who had a number top 20 hit in the UK with a song whose chorus included the word "stupidass" ("Jackie" on Scott 2). Next, click on the very first track sample on amazon on Scott 3 "It's Raining Today" (a Scott Original) and the very last track "If You Go Away" (a Jacques Brel song adapted from the French into English that outdoes the original). Now, as you listen to Scott's super-smooth baritone croon, imagine someone with the vocal abilities of Tom Jones but much mellower and not some kind of macho poseur but more of an oversensitive, intellectual manic depressive who writes and covers songs with very weird lyrics. There, you're almost there! Like Charles Aznavour and Jacques Brel, his French counterparts, he's a crooner who takes a lot of chances and does not succeed with every song, but when he does, watch out! Despite the crooning, Scott is also more of a hipster or rocker in spirit than Tom Jones ever was. His covers of Tim Hardin's songs are the best demonstration of that. "If You Go Away" & "It's Raining Today" are Scott's two best performances of ballads after the incredible "Angels of Ashes" on Scott 4 which is one of the greatest songs of the 60s, period.

5.0 out of 5 stars No Afterthoughts July 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
There are afterthoughts in our life, nostalgic ruminations that keep us suspended in precious times. These moments never really existed in reality, yet our senses recall them vividly because they're the imagery of holiday specials, of merry cheers and happy hopes. Yet, although the sounds are achingly lovely, the juxtoposition with Walker's lyrics on the downcast, downtrodden, the vice and vain creates a sophisticated (if too ironic) layer of complexity.
The opening track 'It's Raining Today' speaks volumes about the feeling of afterthoughts, painting a delicate portrait to a trite theme. The closing chorus in 'Copenhagen' is simply the most luscious example of melancholy ever recorded.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slow ghost pills a bit bout s.w. February 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Hmmm... when it comes to it, it's rather hard to say what one's favorite album ever is, but no....this is it... I've been moody as hell all my life and no matter how mad it gets, this album is the soundtrack to it and the soundtrack out of it. Also the one I put on to calm down and think about what I need to make. Brialliant record. Never misses, from point A to point B. I have to say I look up to this man, not as an idol, but as someone, who has said things that have stayed in my mind forever.
