From Jameth
I don’t get the hype, either. It was a tedious listen and yet it’s ranked ahead of a quite large number of albums from 1969 that are much better.

Scott Walker somehow eluded stardom despite coupling the kind of imagery and storytelling — that would show up later in the work of artists like Warren Zevon — and downright beautiful compositions. Scott 4 is probably the best of his early work and just a gorgeous album from a great vocalist.

Brilliant album, ahead of its time. Every song is wonderful, but highlights are The Seventh Seal, and the incredible The Old Man's Back Again. Underrated.

A brilliant album, possibly Scott Walkers best. It's full of superb atmospheric orchestral tracks with a sprinkling of quirkiness. The seventh seal, based on the great Bergman movie is a lot of fun. Other standouts include, world's strongest man, and the excellent, duchess. Brilliant record.

Great album! The songs are monumental and pretty good. Still, it's not overwhelming... and that's the only thing missing.

Seventh seal got to be up there with the greatest pieces of music ever.

It's listenable. Upon my first listen, I don't understand what all the hype is all about.

'Scott 4', by far Scott Walker's best album, maintained the Brel influence of his previous three, but now the material (a decadent mileu of prostitutes, gansters and misfits) and his operatic vocal style, was all his own. Whereas the arrangements on his previous albums were influenced by Bacharach and Spector, here Morricone shines through. Walker's significance is he managed to transcend the up-dated but essentially old fashioned easy-listening sound of the ballad, to something altogether deeper and philosophical in a manner that not only predated, but was superior to, the work of somebody like David Bowie. Key track: The Old Man's Back Again.
