5.0 out of 5 stars Most rewarding album of 2012, 30 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shifty Adventures In Nookie Wood (Audio CD)
Despite being a long-standing Velvet Underground fan and having owned 'Paris 1919' for over twenty years, I'd never seriously explored Cale's solo work before this year. I'd found it to be the most rewarding body of work I'd come across for a long while. This new album is in a genre I virtually never listen to, but as with all Cale's work it's composed with great intelligence. Someone in a comments thread described Cale as an 'ageing hipster' but that's exactly what he isn't: he gives you a really smart and awake view on contemporary political and social issues. Switch off the news and listen to this, you'll feel well informed about what's going on in the world.
