I've really struggled trying to describe Scott Walker's music. I started listening to Bish Bosch and worked backward. I fell in love with his art and and I love listening to every stage in his artistic development and changes that very few artists could pull off. He's been a terrific vocalist for the pop sound of the sixties and now he's striving for something else.
He's created a sonic landscape that represents life's beauty, horror, absurdity and mystery Tilt is my personal favorite of his albums There is a mystery to life that no one can fully capture. Scott Walker Buzzers - Scott Walker - The Drift (Vinyl made a valiant and interesting attempt throughout his career If you appreciate the scope and depth of Scott Walkers work, and have an open mind about music - you will find this worth listening to and enjoyable.
It's not dinner conversation background music. Usually a really great recording takes several listens to get and absorb whats going on. This thing has taken me several years to fully appreciate. The world of Tilt is a difficult one to enter into but once you do all the hard work to get there is rewarded.
As a lyricist Walker is without peers! I don't know who you might consider a great lyricist, Dylan etc. The music at times industrial others operatic minimal. This is Art rock of the highest degree. I think it's kind of funny that this CD is selling in the "Soft Rock" genre. It is definitely not that. So if you like challenging music, this is for you, don't give up to early because this is a magical world once you gain entry! I'm enthralled by Buzzers - Scott Walker - The Drift (Vinyl magnificent CD.
A masterpiece of contemporary music, totally unclassifiable, unique in its beauty and magic. The meaning of the lyrics, or are they poems? Charged with emotion, his expressive voice conveys more than words could ever say. This is challenging music. Scott said about this recording: "I worked hard at it and they his listeners should work at it as well. More and more I think there are people around who'll do that". So if you're willing to go down the path Scott made, put this CD on late at night, turn off the lights, and explore it One of the most disturbing things I've ever heard.
The cover is beautifully unintelligible. The album is mostly like that too. There is a peaceful feeling, but it's something different, like you're plunging slowly into a maze in a dark nightmare. You're traveling and you're not alone: Scott Walker is there with you. No, he doesn't guide you; he's just as lost as you are. You go through it together until you realize his nightmare was your nightmare as well. Strangely, I sometimes fall asleep listening to this CD and I actually have good dreams.
Scott Walker-Tilt Tilt is a perfect Buzzers - Scott Walker - The Drift (Vinyl for the music contained on this disc! For those who follow Walker's career, this is not as great a departure as many have posited. Maybe because there are such extended silences between his projects, his albums seem to exist in voids. Viewed as a whole, however, there are echoes and ribbons that connect this all the way back to the "Scott" albums, and it seems a logical extension. This is a challenging record - certainly if you are comparing it to pop or rock music in any mainstream sense, but it is also an exquisitely lovely record, too, with a soaring beauty Album) encompasses despair and heartbreak as well as joy and happiness.
Beauty is not the same as pretty. This is certainly not "pretty" music, but it is moving, provoking and ultimately affirming music: to acknowledge the ugly, unjust and evil, you must have a grounding their opposites, as well. Not to get all abstract or pretentious - let's just say that Walker is aiming for something a bit outside of entertainment in his work.
Clearly not for everybody, but for those willing to plunge, there are great rewards here. And for that matter, the song Tilt rocks pretty hard Not unlike the master Not unlike the master, Scott Walker.
See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. If you are into experimental and avant garde works then both those albums are worth a listen. It's where music, soundart and dark poetry of the human condition meet. It's one of those albums that, if it grabs you, it will hold you for the rest of your life.
At times it's haunting, yet beautiful. Still a 5 star album, but poor quality control from the label here, indicates a rush job of the highest order, or just a lack of interest, LP. Issuing a Scott Walker album without the lyrics 4aD did this with the reissue of The Drift is a completely pointless exercise in my opinion, its missing half of its meaning.
One person found this helpful. Bought for my husband who has suddenly decided that he needs to research his musical history after finding out that Scot Walker is mentioned by the likes of Bowie and Marc Almond as being someone who inspired them. Won't be to everyone's taste. It's not the sixties Scott but this is bold and adventurous and breaks new ground. Soused is even more out there and I love both. The darkest of nightmares made manifest, a staggering album
