Robert Wyatt is a rare bird. His remarkable career began forty years ago drumming and singing for Soft Machine, a post-psych outfit tied to the “Canterbury Scene” of the late ‘60s that yielded Pink Floyd & Gong among others. His ensuing and far longer solo period speaks volumes
of Wyatt’s value and endurance as an ... Read more in Amazon's Robert Wyatt Store

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic no-frills Wyatt 4 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
While Wyatt's early albums featured lush arrangements and guest musicians, by the mid eighties he had consolidated into a one man production house, producing two albums with just himself playing keyboards, drums and vocals and both are fine pieces of work. Rottenhat is quite approachable with songs following short formats while retaining the air of experiment mixed with sincerity that Wyatt fans so love. Buy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Little RED recording 7 Aug 2008
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
As a fan of the following,

Robert Wyatt's original visions from the wonderful grupo SOFT MACHINE

Signore Wyatt's sense of humor

his decided progressive politics, and thoughtful worldview

his emotive voice

his exotic and crazylouco world view

(on different recordings) that he can sing in a good italian and spanish!

THis cd will not produce any sparks, it is quietly forceful, and even as Signore Wyatt uses drum machine and is at best a rudementary pianista, these compositions stand out for their beauty and for the words, which are very sly and cynical, in the tipical english way.

Recommended, as are ALL Robert Wyatt , from Soft Machine and Matching Mole grupos to the numerous solo efforts.

One cannot be disappointed when a músico makes a 5 star effort!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Great One 28 April 2010
Another excellent record for Robert Wyatt. Personally I don't rate this one as high as Rock Bottom or Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard, but it is still essential. I'm pretty much going along through the Wyatt catalog chronologically and have yet to be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good songs but something's missing 17 Dec 2008
Format:Audio CD
Robert Wyatt is, and has always been, a great songwriter and a distinctive singer capable of deliverings lyrics with great humour, deep sadness, beauty, biting political irony... whatever is required. It's also a very affected voice which can annoy.
This album, recorded in 1985 and played entirely by himself, has all these qualities. But, for me, the lack of interplay between musicians, renders some of his great tunes more shallow than they deserve. Each track can sound somewhat similar and so nothing stands out - a real shame. But if you like other work by Robert Wyatt,you'll probaly still like this.
