Scott Walker left a beautiful, weird and sometimes frightening body of work. And while he sang a lot of commercial crap in the 70's, he could sing the phone book and still make it spellbinding. His work with the Walker Brothers is 60's Teen Pop angst bliss. Then he discovered Jacques Brel and began to compose his own work which can be characterized as heavily orchestrated, manic-depressive waltzes and surreal kitchen sink drama. Then things got strange. Nite Flights was avant-garde Death Disco. Then he pushed the envelope into the realms of the frightening and arcane. Cutting albums that defy classification. Mixing abject horror and haunting beauty. Here's his "Top 10". Click an album below to read a review
