1001 Albums You Must Hear (and Blog about) Before You Die

My attempt to blog all of the entries from the book 1001 Albums to Hear Before You Die

822. Scott 4 – Scott Walker

Brief Background: Scott 4 was recorded and released in 1969. It is the first of Walker’s albums to contain all songs written by himself.

What I think: I really try to be fair and find something I like in every album I listen to, but this one has absolutely no redeeming qualities. The hip crooner thing is really very awful and like Scott 2 was a very difficult album to get through.

Do I agree or disagree with the writers as to this being an album you must listen to? Disagree, Disagree, Disagree. Complete garbage

Rating (Out of 5): 0

Amazon Review (Out of 5): 4.5

Is this my first time hearing this album? Yes (139/180)

Percentage of Albums that are new to me: 77%

    Funny enough, I never liked Scott 2, but this is one of my favorite albums of all time. Try giving it another listen. May not be your style, but hauntingly good in my opinion. One of the many albums from my own 1,001 journey that I still listen to.
