The arguement over which of Scott Walker's albums is the best is not an easy one to decide. Whilst the undeniable genius of 1995's TILT holds a special place in this listener's heart as one of the darkest, most innovative albums ever produced, if I was pushed into a corner and asked which Scott album I listen to more than any other, it would probably be SCOTT 3.
Often strangely overlooked in favour of SCOTT 4, Walker's third solo album sees that amazing, haunting voice at it's most powerful and thought provoking. Unlike it's predecessors, SCOTT 3 really does begin to push the limits on what the "general" record buying public were willing to fork out money for, and it wouldn't be long until the Scott of the 60's WALKER BROTHERS would disappear altogether.
From the wonderful, complex arrangement of the album's stunning opener IT'S RAINING TODAY (written by Scott), which cleverly mixes a traditional 60's romantic melody with an undercurrent of disturbing strings that hints at disaster and heartache ahead, SCOTT 3 never fails to make the listener sit up and take note as the singer songwriter takes us on a journey drenched with darkened romanticism.
True, there are still lighter romantic tracks here, the seemingly jolly COPENHAGEN being a prime example, but as with even his WALKER BROTHERS output, the lyrics nearly always tell a darker story than the tune may have you believe (I mean, just listen to the lyrics to THE SUN AIN'T GONNA SHINE ANYMORE).
As with his previous albums, Scott delves into Jacques Brel territory, although it's to Scott's ever growing confidence as song writer that the album owes the majority of it's most impressive moments to his abilities alone.

Obvious from its no-nonsense title, this was, of course, the third self-titled offering from Scott following the initial dissolution of the Walker Brothers sometime in the mid 1960's. The songs and song writing ability in general had improved since the rather angular Scott II, and could definitely be seen as something of a precursor to the near mythic status of the amazing Scott IV (with songs like Butterfly and Winter Night being taken to their logical conclusion with later tracks like The Hero of War and Duchess) -- with this record displaying a confidence and maturity that was lacking in the work that came before. Scott's songwriting is here nurtured by the production of John Franz and those gorgeous arrangements, which here draw on the sound that Scott is most synonymous with (and later acts like Morrissey, the Divine Comedy and Pulp would attempt to ape)... with celestial strings pouring melancholy, being callously undercut by the bombastic horns that underline Walker's resonating croon.
The album opens on a high, with one of Scott's all time classic ballads... It's Raining Today. The sound is typical of the chamber pop of this era, though, at the same time, sounds as otherworldly as anything you can imagine... even pre-empting Bowie's space-age crooner from records like Station to Station. It sets up a mood of nostalgia, loss, dislocation & heartache that will continue throughout the album, transporting us to a place that is shrouded in a misty sepia, (or subdued, like the Neil Jordan visualisation of Graham Greene's the End of the Affair... a film that continues such notions of loss and even alludes to Scott through the use of Michael Nyman's wilting string-based soundtrack).

I was first introduced to Scott Walker by the 1981 compilation put together by Julian Cope: "Fire Escape In The Sky -- The Godlike Genius of Scott Walker". Now, with such a hyperbolic title like that, you got to make damn sure that your boy can deliver -- and deliver he did. Stupidly, though, I assumed that what wasn't on that album would be all the filler tracks -- how wrong can you get? Scott 3 is, quite simply, the most perfect pop album ever made -- although the word 'pop' may be misused here: this really is art.
Songs of such heart-wrenching beauty and melody as 'Copenhagen', 'Rosemary', 'Butterfly' and 'Two Ragged Soldiers' are rare enough finds on their own, but to find them grouped together on one album is a minor miracle.
An absolute essential to any serious record collection.

Marvelous songs: It's Raining Today, Rosemary, Big Louise, Two Ragged Soldiers and Brel's Funeral Tango. Allmusic could get it wrong on any other album (as they frequently do), but not aspire to be arbiters of good taste, and get this one wrong. They seem squeamish about 'Funeral Tango', which actually is absolutely hilarious due to Scott's wonderful, perfectly judged rendering. Raining, Rosemary, Louise, and Ragged are some of the best reasons for the existence of popular music: brilliant, intense, warped and majestic.

Today received replacement record as on playing side one there was severe distortion at the end of Big Louise' and 'We came through' The distortion is exactly the same on both discs. It is quite severe and very clearly a pressing problem. Whilst the vinyl version is listed as being on Abraxus' label it is in fact Four Men With Beards'. As are Scott 2 and 4 which I have already just purchased. Online research reveals a considerable number of adverse reviews as to these pressings by 4MWB although 2 and 4 whilst a bit noisy are nowhere as bad as 3 . I would not recommend anyone to buy them. The content of all albums is quite beautiful. I think I will send them all back and purchase the more recent box set.
