This is probably where you can see Scot Walker begin the journey that took him into avant-garde. It is happy and calm but is still on the same level artistically as his previous albums.

The album starts off with a acoustic guitar and a trumpet blasting away for atmospheres sake. Atmosphere will not need any assistance after the trumpet and guitar's kind charity because it sets up the album perfectly. The album then runs into 3 ballads, a largo piece with a an odd string instrument that repeats the theme every now and then, soul music, a country-esque number, a ballad with a soul chorus and a folk track. All this happens while still holding that Scott Walker sound that makes the songs not fit perfectly into their influenced genres. The backing musicians are fantastic and the album is overproduced just how you would imagine vocal music with 20 instruments behind it would be produced in the 60s. Even though the old-timey production is there, the album never feels full. This works very well with Scott's full voice as it makes each song intimate, he is singing to you instead of at you. The songs are well composed though they might be a bit too mellow for the modern ear. If you ever feel like listening to some nice poetry, sung by a good singer, to some nice music then i suggest that you get this album.
