I find Robert Wyatt's singing voice an incredible instrument, and on this record he really uses it to perfection. Robert's voice has an amazing fragility linked to awesome ability to time phrasing, yet underpinning that fragile vulnerability is a real steel of emotional strength. This whole record I find is about those juxtapositions of things that are almost contradictory but which actually complement one another. Elsewhere someone takes off marks claiming that there are elements such as cocktail jazz sax that he feels lets the ensemble down, personally I find it is just those things that give this record real appeal. At very corner you come across something of interest, sometime odd and unsettling, sometimes not, but always of interest.If they only had Robert singing What a wonderful world, I would give this top marks, but the other ten tracks are all of immense value, this is a real treasure.
