No really, where on earth did this guy come from. It's amazing, bizzare, but amazing. This album is filled with music that sounds like it should have been released around the 70s at the earliest. There is such a variety of sound in here, from Scott's voice, that at times sounds like something out of Phantom of the Opera, to bass lines and synth that could have been taken from a David Bowie record. You cannot put this in a genre. That makes the fact that it was released mid way through the 20th century even more incredible.
I first heard Sleepwalkers Woman and instantly thought that i had walked into an Anotny and the Johnson's cover. Apparently not. The sound and acoustics of this album aswell are utterly surreal with a hollow echoing sound that implies the whole thing could have been recorded in a cavern. Scott's voice just echoes and reverberates from your speakers filling your ears and not allowing you to switch off.
I simply cannot get my mind round this as it twists and turns your perception of musical possibilities so much, and though short it leaves you with a feeling of utter bewilderment.
I love it. That might say something about me, but this record is utterly incredible, and deserves a listen by any discerning music fan as it will literally blow your mind. Though i dont recomend listening to it in a dark room as you may be . . . well . . . disturbed. But it has an echoing beauty that cannot be faulted.
Buy this album NOW! or regret it for the rest of your life.
