The new 73 minute Scott Walker album is as confrontational and devastating as it is astonishing and unpredictable. It's far more erratic and wide spread than The Drift which makes it feel perhaps less coherent but it is always shifting and always engaging. A highly recommended album that is still revealing itself after ten listens.

The CD version comes packaged almost exactly alike to The Drift with an outer box, a CD case and a tall extensive lyrics booklet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everything Under the Sun, 11 July 2012
I love this release, it contains all of the Walker Brothers tracks, of which some are truly spectacular. It contains a large attached booklet that has the feel of a journal or a fanzine. The only reasons I would not give this a ten out of ten is that - unlike the rest of the discs - the fifth disc isn't protected very well, it's basically inserted into the last page of the booklet which is made of a thicker card. Also there are tracks here that I don't really care for.

Some of these tracks really are fantastic though and warrant a purchase on their own, tracks like 'The Girl I Lost In The Rain' or 'Archangel' are just amazing for instance.

Enjoying the book so far although I haven't yet read every section (I'll update this review when I get round to that!).

As to be expected each of the writers tend to be gushing over Scott Walker and their love and passion for the music comes through.

I enjoyed reading The Walker Brothers section written by Anthony Reynolds which helped me to put those early records into a context and make sense of them in the greater scheme of things. I really love having the full transcription of the Wire… Read more
