    I know everyone gets the horn over the drift but this is a 10/10 masterpiece

    listened to pretty much everything he did before and after this, but hearing this is like hearing him for the first time all over again. :O

    I'm more and more starting to consider that this actually is his best. <3

    i really like this record, but prefer the drift, listened to it way more than tilt or scott 4

    Some of this makes me think of Joy Division.

    Scott4 is better than this however worthy an experiment it is... Avant-gardism equals less pleasure in my opinion.

    The production combined with Scott's baroque vocals makes this a pretty terrifying affair. Great stuff and I hope the Drift is just as good.

    The first time I heard this I was confused. Ten years later it is one of my all time favourites. Conjures up storm clouds, farms at night, lights twinkling on dark hills, moon glinting off crop blades and the knowing but silent tension rippled through livestocks torso...fascinating

    "of the later avant-garde stuff, Tilt is definitely superior to the Drift." Nope

    bought my copy six years ago. I was 16 then. yeah. more people should encounter such starkly avant garde mindfucks like this at such an impressionable age. "IT'S A BEAUTIFUL NIIIIIIGHT, YEAH!"

    does anyone else think his "deep voice" sounds silly?

    was just listening to "the cockfighter" in my headphones with the volume turned up....and it scared the shit out of me. forgot about that abrupt change! picked up the lp reissue on drag city this's beautiful.

    And to think Scott Walker made this in the 90s just goes to prove how much of a "30 century man" he is indeed. This is one of the finest albums I've ever heard.

    @thisisobvious - yeah, I saw that in the Scott Walker doc and it was pretty weird to hear him say that. His reaction seemed pretty excessive...almost like there's more to the story there or something.
