It's worth the money. Scott 3 is the third solo album of the uncompromising musician Funeral Tango - Scott Walker - Scott 3 (CD Walker a. Engel whom Julian Cope called a "godlike genius. The music pieces Scott created for this album communicate not only the truth of human realities but also wisdom. Again, I highly recommend this album to anybody who appreciates complexity and ambiguity of human emotional life. This is smack-dab where Scott's pop sensibilities were first immersed in experimentation.
Beautiful vocals, lush arrangements and a bit of dissonance. It's a work of glacial grace -- chilly and evocative of steam from breath. The whole album points to "Farmer In The City". It is a shame I couldn't find this album for a better deal, but it shipped faster than estimated. It is my first Scott album, not my last. Came in perfect condition. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. ZeitGhoul music is my sanctuary. A perfect rainy day record!
Now this is Scott Walker inhabiting what we now can see as the 'nostslgic paradise' that some early great pop music can evoke, no matter what age it is being heard. Scotts voice has an angelic beauty but on every track you sense this darker spirit and earthy longing that keeps coming through so well on this lovely album. Scott references Birgmans Seventh Album) for example, a film about mortality and fear, but when he talks about it this feels truely earned as it feels instinctively like a good match to Walkers searching artistic identity.
This was on the Scott 4 album btw. But I mention this because I now think, having heard most of his solo records, that this creative spirit managed to have so many fascinating and challenging song writing ideas in his life time, and they were often relating to his memories of film and literature that he loved. Scott 3 starts in Sabbath rain effect mode and then the early seventies seem to seep out of every note and harmony. You feel the moment with Its Raining Today which sets the mood of this record so well.
I really like Rosemary the name itself reminds me of Rosemary's baby I also think tracks like 3Oth Century Man set Walker up well as a bit of a visionary of his time too. But this is not an album full of classic songs or hits.
It does feel like a truely classic early time piece as a whole and there is a truely soulful mode of Scott Walker all the way through. He is also starting to connect with his more adventurous and meloncholy visions as a singer. And if anything this struggle in itself makes his music more hypnotic and poetic and incredibly tinged with a kind of knowing passion for his art Best heard on a rainy day Yep it's good so get Scott A very good album with some excellent compositions by Scott.
The three Jacques Brel songs that end the album are very good, Sons Of, starts slowly and gradually builds up to a nicely paced ending.
Funeral Tango, which is hilarious, and If you go away, is wonderful. Total enjoyment, that rich voice combined with great music is a hit with me.
Report abuse. Great album nicely packed too. Bought this too add to my collection of Scott Walker albums. I have to mention that the front of case was cracked and the lugs holding the the cd were all broken so the whole thing went in the recycling but no drama.
