I consider myself a huge Scott Walker fan, and this is my favourite album.
To be honest I don't care much for his later work, such as 'Tilt' or 'The Drift',
though for me Scott - Scott 4 are all outstanding recordings of a truly gifted
singer/songwriter. 'The Amorous Humphrey Plug'. Who else could write a song with
that title, never mind the quality or 'other-worldliness' of the song itself
I ask you dear readers? We have sweeping strings and brass arrangements galore!!

Scott goes from having a tiring day to escaping on the roller-skate subway and up
into the clouds, meeting nine angels along the way. And all of this while donning
a new suit. Such dream-like imagery. 'Plastic Palace People' is equally dream-like,
evoking memories of Channing Way - a place Scott Walker used to know I believe?

As with the earlier album 'Scott', his fascination with the songs of Jacques Brel
continues to great effect here. 'Jackie' is a real stomper, with dark romantic lyrics
thrown around effortlessly! Tim Hardin's 'Black Sheep Boy' is another stand out track,
with country-tinged acoustic guitar and tambourine providing sound, jangly backing for
some really wonderful vocals. I think Scott Walker's unique, golden voice is at it's most
impressive on Scott 2, despite what some other critics think.....

On 'Scott 2', the artist visits his past, present and future. 'Jackie' opens the album in the present, his fixation with Brel's songs. This is my favourite of his Brel covers, a track that gallops through a maelstrom of biting witticisms. This is followed by his Walker Brothers past, the commercial ballad, 'Best Of Both Worlds'. The future is represented by his own material, notably the epic 'Plastic Palace People', which incorporates both his smooth and cryptic sides. It's one of his best songs outside the brilliant 'Scott 4'.

He has three other self-penned songs on this album and they vary in quality. 'The Amorous Humphrey Plugg' is more mundane than the title suggests and suffers from an overdone slow vibrato. Both 'The Girls From The Streets' and 'The Bridge' are, however, quite impressive.

Walker's choice of outside material is, on the whole, inspired. Tim Hardin's 'Black Sheep Boy' has a striking, country rock beat and helps to break up the more intense material. Brel's 'Next' is impossible to ignore, but won't appeal to everyone. Even so, 'Scott 2', with its customary sumptuous orchestral arrangements is a classy album.

This is a must have album for anyone familiar with Scott`s work and especially his early solo albums , post Walker Bros from the late `60`s.
Scott 2 contains some of his Jaques Brell interpretations as well as classics such as Black Sheep Boy, Jackie, The Amorous Humphry Plugg and Plastic Palace People.
A beautiful reminder of his great talent and also of his amazing voice.....Also great orchestral arrangements from Wally Stott.

This collection for me showcases the many sides of the character of the man and hence his staggering versatility: the serious introspective (Windows of the World) , the classical music lover and wistful romantic ( Best of Both Worlds) , the Country and Western devotee ( Black Sheep Boy) , he of the Bawdy and self deprecating humour borne of a world - weariness ( Next and The Girls), the disillusioned cynic ( The Girls) . Serious themes are relieved by timely flourishes of lighter string sequences. Come Next Spring, an optimistic ballad with plenty of orchestral backing, is the right way to close the collection.

If this sounds like i am talking about a poet, then i think I am !

If you have not yet purchased this album then you have to ask yourself why not? Once you realise you are a daft git for not owning it you can thankfully buy it here.

Scott Walker is one of the most important artists of the past 50 years and people who don't own his albums are missing out on something very special!

Scott walker give him his due did open younger ears
To a more adult view of love and its emotions having been himself moved by the songs of jagues brel. This is
A good cd in the brel vain on some tracks. Prefer this to
His later experimental self indugent outpourings which leave you thinking his mind is stuck in a bad dream of his own making poor soul. He has a good voice. But does
Sing as if he has flue symptoms try night nurse scot works a treat.

This is Scott Walker's second album, which established him as one of England's finest pop stars. It was No. 1 in the UK at the time (his only No.1 album infact), but it certainly isn't his best. The Jacques Brel covers are the best thing on the album ("Jackie", his first Top 20 hit), although some of his songs aren't that bad at all (note "The Amorous Humprey Plugg"). His songwriting would later be improved on Scott 3 and 4. The man's voice is here alright, and for that alone it's worth the price. This 2000 remaster offers you a great chance to hear Scott in superb quality, and the sleeves are great too.
