When THE WALKER BROTHERS unexpectedly reformed in 1975 with the album "No Regrets", it did seem for a brief while that they may just be capable of reaching the kind of dizzy heights they peaked at in the Sixties, especially when the title track "No Regrets" became a smash hit. By the time the next album, "Lines", was released in 1976 however, any such thoughts became fairytales.
The final album in the reformed WALKER BROTHERS tenure was quitely unleashed in 1978 under the title of "Night Flites", and was quickly forgotten. Unlike it's two predecessors though (which whilst enjoyable were certainly not Scott Walker at his most prolific), "Nite Flites" began the transition for Scott which saw him completely leave behind the Scott Walker of the Sixties, particularly the persona from the the first three WALKER BROTHERS albums. The fact that Scott always seemed to hate having to deal with the fame of being a "pop star" made this progression inevitable, and the often touted inaccessability of his self-penned material on his two solo albums after "Nite Flites" (on 1983's "Climate Of Hunter" and 1995's "Tilt"), actually can be heard unexpectedly on this, THE WALKER BROTHERS final album.
Viewing "Nite Flites" as a whole, I would only rate the album with 3 stars, as the only tracks of real note are the first 4 out of a total of 10. These four stand-out tracks are the only ones written and sang by Scott, and it certainly shows.

This is an astonishing album; a strange, sensual and beautiful concoction from 1978 that was to be The Walker Brothers final and finest work.
Heavily influenced by David Bowie's Low; this is decentralized pop with elements of sleazy funk, electronic disco and krautrock . To this day it retains a dark attraction and undeniable mystique; as Brian Eno mused on the 30th Century Man documentary, that nothing has really progressed from this bravely experimental achievement.
It really must be re-released now, remastered with extras; it is time for this genius to resurface.

This album's partly great. The first 3 tracks are cool sounding new wave/disco hybrids; slightly Bowie-ish, fresh and interesting and stand the test of time. The 4th track 'The Electrician' is brilliant. These first 4 tracks are written by Scott Walker. The rest are written by the other members and feel very pale in comparison. Towards the end sounding like out takes from the Jess Roden Band.(no offence intended to the the great Jess Roden). However, This album is worth buying for 'The Electrician' alone.

This, the last of the Walker Brothers Albums, shows where Scott Walker is going. The songs have glimmers of their past. not as commercial as their first five albums but more intricate . The ambiant backdrop of some tracks point to 'Tilt' Scott Walkers album from 1995 .
One cannot say this is the most interesting music you can come across, but it does need to be heard to understand the future of, at least Scott Walker contribution to rock history.

This album passed me by and it was only seeing the documentary Scott Walker - 30 Century Man recently on Sky Arts, that made me aware it even existed. As the documentary explains, at this point in time Scott Walker was losing his popular appeal, as the audience changed and his music from the 1960s was seen as : "the kind of music your Mother would have liked".

Looking back now, this is the point where he shifts from being a "pop" singer to an artist who went on to explore the fringes of the avant garde. The first four tracks on this album are a wonderful mixture of that great baritone voice and a rock production that has elements of noise - in the way that David Bowie and Lou Reed had done - combining song structures with "Musique concrète". After this - Walker abandoned any kind of recognisable structure, for pure noise and expression.

But this is of course a "Walker Brothers" album and after the first four tracks it becomes more of a band record, with Walker taking a back-seat - which is a shame as it becomes the kind of predictable MOR rock that proliferated in late 70s USA. Walker surfaces occasionally, but it is those first four tracks that hint at what was to come and which earn my four stars on their own - the rest is disposable, in the same way as the first four are indispenable; as part of the prodigious output of Scott Walker's genius.

And the rest are pretty crap. Now what does that tell you? It tells me I think it's going to be a bloody long time before I can stop playing them. Why didn't Scott Walker release more music around this period like this? Why? Why? Why? Heh.
I'm a newbie to his music. If you need in depth analytics in your reviews, this is the wrong one. I just need musical finds of distinction, merit and worth like this like a flipping drug or something, so all I'm going to do is gush over how bloody fantastic his songs on this album are. Yes, I can hear all the influential talent, creativity, 'experimentation' and genius that other people write about but the main thing for me to state is, I just can't stop playing Scott Walker's 1st 4 songs on this and most of 'Scott 4' (especially the last 4 songs) every chance I get right now. Amazing!
