CD Reviews

Turning point
Krandel Krause | cranford, nj United States | 01/06/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In "Climate of The Hunter" we hear Scott's "Before and After Science", the Album that starts his foray into the darker more emotional and unknown corridors of the emotions, both lyrically and musically. On "Climate" we start to hear the disintegration of the contemporary music form as accompaniment for a favoring of sounds that illustrate a scenario.

The next CD (ten years from this one) "Tilt", was full-on nerve pulses and synapses, sonically surrounding the internal dialog of the other, the outsider, as seen and described by an ascetic.

Although this manner of composition is more art than what those in the west would consider music, "Climate" is a good CD to test the waters in order to see if you would like to delve deeper into the no-mans land of the psyche. Nobody does it better and few would know where to start."

"Over the period of a year or so this one finally clicked with me. That is pretty typical for Walkers later work. At first I'm like Huh, what, I don't think I like this, and then pretty soon it's in my top ten and I play it every day. This is lighter fare than Tilt or The Drift but it is heading in that direction so you may want to try this one before entering into those "worlds" which are kind of scary and difficult. Or if you already have Tilt and Drift I suggest you go back and get this one which you will no doubt enjoy. Walker is the kind of artist where the listener is expected to do some work in order to be let into his world, it does take some effort but worth it in the long run. Excellent."
Astonishing Beauty

"This is perhaps the most accessible album that Scott Walker put out during the second half of his solo career, and certainly the most beautiful. It is dark, certainly. Very dark. But this is less stark and more melodic that much of his music, without sacrificing any integrity. Track Three is a standout, but there is not a weak moment on this album.

Thank God for this iconoclast and his brilliant musical vision."
