I went back and listened to this album after Scott's recent death and found myself pleasantly surprised. Psst, psst, psst, psst. Yes, it's a challenging listen but with total focus and the lights out it is an unsettling (in a good way) and captivating experience. Psst, psst, psst, psst. The only grumble is Scott's voice. Aside from the last track it's pretty much in the same key, the same tone and has the same unmelodic phrasing on every 'song'. Psst, psst, psst, psst. Sometimes I wonder if it would be more effective without the vocal track. Psst, psst, psst, psst. Still it doesn't tarnish the album and overall it's a mesmerizing piece of work. Psst, psst, psst, psst. Just not one for the Christmas party. Psst, psst, psst, psst.

Cossacks, is great. The rest pretentious wank. It's not to say o don't enjoy some of it, but at the end of the day, so what? You don't have to like this you know?

An album everyone should hear once. Not something i feel driven to return to often but definitely a worthwhile listen ... and by worthwhile I mean bone chillingly terrifying.

Scott Walker is a mad scientist and a genius, but also, Christ, there's no need to make such a terrifying album.
