Notes:

"Tilt" is the most recent LP from reclusive genius Scott Walker, best known as lead singer for 60s pop sensations, The Walker Brothers. Walker Brothers fans should beware. "Tilt" is about as far away from frothy pop as it is possible to get. I guess the transition would be the equivalent of Rickey Martin suddenly opting out of the Top 40 to join a music concrete ensemble.

"Tilt" is difficult to slot into any neat category; it defies categorization. But if I were pressed to make comparisons, I would say that parts of it remind me of the very early 4AD era Associates, with Walker's voice having the same emotive soar as the late Billy Mackenzie. In other parts, "Tilt" calls up Colin Newman's (Wire) early solo work or Bowie circa "Low".

"Tilt" lives up to its name being subject to sudden angular shifts in mood. Lush orchestral passages (with a real symphony) dissolve into harsher, disjointed, angular runs before returning back to a soundtrack-like dreaminess. Cuts that especially stood out are "Farmer in the City" and the title track.

The more I listen to it, the more I can say that "Tilt" is work of singular breadth and vision, almost breathtakingly so. When others with his past would be content playing Las Vegas lounges, Walker has instead carved out a distinct and bleakly romantic vision., eschewing all concessions to commercial success and successfully carving out a distinct musical territory he alone occupies.

This product was added to our catalog on Friday 12 December, 2008.
