Originally released in 1997, this was Scott Walker's first release in over a decade. The bleak, gothic theatre that his oblique lyrics and operatic vocals convey is bolstered by dark string arrangement, reverbed guitars, the whirring of synthesizers, and the rattle of percussion. The release further enhances Walker's 30-year career, finding him at still another and different peak of his ability as a vocalist and lyricist. When you read about Scott's influence on Bowie or Pulp or Marc Almond or Nick Cave, you're being told next to nothing about his own work. The term "inimitable" can truly be used in all sincerity here.
