When THE WALKER BROTHERS unexpectedly reformed in 1975 with the album "No Regrets", it did seem for a brief while that they may just be capable of reaching the kind of dizzy heights they peaked at in the Sixties, especially when the title track "No Regrets" became a smash hit. By the time the next album, "Lines", was released in 1976 however, any such thoughts became fairytales.
The final album in the reformed WALKER BROTHERS tenure was quitely unleashed in 1978 under the title of "Night Flites", and was quickly forgotten. Unlike it's two predecessors though (which whilst enjoyable were certainly not Scott Walker at his most prolific), "Nite Flites" began the transition for Scott which saw him completely leave behind the Scott Walker of the Sixties, particularly the persona from the the first three WALKER BROTHERS albums. The fact that Scott always seemed to hate having to deal with the fame of being a "pop star" made this progression inevitable, and the often touted inaccessability of his self-penned material on his two solo albums after "Nite Flites" (on 1983's "Climate Of Hunter" and 1995's "Tilt"), actually can be heard unexpectedly on this, THE WALKER BROTHERS final album.
Viewing "Nite Flites" as a whole, I would only rate the album with 3 stars, as the only tracks of real note are the first 4 out of a total of 10. These four stand-out tracks are the only ones written and sang by Scott, and it certainly shows.

I've wanted this record for years but was apprehensive about ordering it as I've heard that some recordings of this are taken from downloads. But I went for it and it's a bona fide copy! It was delivered on time and it's the real thing. Thank you to that supplier.

This album passed me by and it was only seeing the documentary Scott Walker - 30 Century Man recently on Sky Arts, that made me aware it even existed. As the documentary explains, at this point in time Scott Walker was losing his popular appeal, as the audience changed and his music from the 1960s was seen as : "the kind of music your Mother would have liked".

Looking back now, this is the point where he shifts from being a "pop" singer to an artist who went on to explore the fringes of the avant garde. The first four tracks on this album are a wonderful mixture of that great baritone voice and a rock production that has elements of noise - in the way that David Bowie and Lou Reed had done - combining song structures with "Musique concrète". After this - Walker abandoned any kind of recognisable structure, for pure noise and expression.

But this is of course a "Walker Brothers" album and after the first four tracks it becomes more of a band record, with Walker taking a back-seat - which is a shame as it becomes the kind of predictable MOR rock that proliferated in late 70s USA. Walker surfaces occasionally, but it is those first four tracks that hint at what was to come and which earn my four stars on their own - the rest is disposable, in the same way as the first four are indispenable; as part of the prodigious output of Scott Walker's genius.

This, the last of the Walker Brothers Albums, shows where Scott Walker is going. The songs have glimmers of their past. not as commercial as their first five albums but more intricate . The ambiant backdrop of some tracks point to 'Tilt' Scott Walkers album from 1995 .
One cannot say this is the most interesting music you can come across, but it does need to be heard to understand the future of, at least Scott Walker contribution to rock history.

What a strange album this is. It reminds me of the Super-Sessions of Kooper, Bloomfield and Stills in view of the fact that what we have here are essentially two albums. The first is a Scott solo album in all but name (tracks 1-4). Tracks 5-10 are Scott's neighbours have a BBQ to drown Mr Engel out.

Scott's efforts themselves are mixed, with tracks 2 and 4, especially 2, being more adventurous, 1 and 3 displaying a more consciously conventional form. If you use your imagination, the title track (in terms of melody, not lyrics) could almost be sung by Duran Duran. Overall, Scott's songs are arguably his most successful efforts at combining conventional and experimental forms of songwriting, creating something listenable yet challenging. As ever with Scott, the lyrics are fantastic (excepting the line 'Dragons of disgust' from Scott 4-- I agree with you, Bowie). 'Drilling through the Spiritus Sanctus'-- what a lyric! What would Gregory of Nyssa have thought of Scott's intentions?

The previous reviewer's observation that Gary and John were attempting to keep up with Scott is very perceptive. Prima facie this seems the case. Take Gary's 'contributions'. They share the disjointed lyrical structure (or lack) of Scott's compositions. However, with Gary's, this technique appears contrived, forced even. Perhaps one is looking for Gary to pale compare to Scott, and that actually, lyrically, there is little difference. Actually, it may well be that our valuation of the lyrics is coloured by Gary's frankly piss-poor vocal 'performance- anaemic is not an adequate word to describe the vapid, emotionally empty, by-numbers excuse for a singing attempt. Sorry Gary, but stick to the drums-- you make Ringo sound like Pavarotti. Aside from the lyrics, the musical arrangements are unimaginative.
