5.0 out of 5 stars CALE STILL ENJOYABLY CHALLENGING, 8 Oct 2012
This review is from: Shifty Adventures In Nookie Wood (Audio CD)
I read a review in Uncut magazine which praised this album and promptly dumped it with six stars! I read an account somewhere else which said this LP amounted to Cale's adventures in dance music.

The lack of quality reviewers for someone as important to the rock world as Cale is tremendously disappointing (but perhaps shouldn't be surprising). At time of writing, there are already two reviews on this page by people who clearly know what they're on about.

If you have never heard John Cale before, aside from his VU work, this is a good place to start. I'm a little biased because I've immersed myself in all of his solo work and aside from a lean (but still interesting) period in the mid-Eighties, I love every album.

But to try to be objective, it's fair to say 'Nookie Wood' continues the hot streak evident on 'Hobosapiens' and 'blackAcetate'-- while not as epic as the former, it's not as abrasive as the latter.

For those that were listening, last year's EP provides a worthy primer. I think it's one of the best albums of the year.
