  • Nearly everything Scott Walker has recorded is worthwhile and brimming with creativity (with the possible exception of the tossed-off stuff from the early 70s which, even then, is not without its pleasures) but for me his best work can be found on albums 1-4. They aren't as innovative/avantgarde as recordings like The Drift and Tilt but they are beautiful albums with songs ranging from giddy, goofy and joyful to pathetic, frightening and soul-crushingly depressing, and Scott's vocals throughout those four albums are among the best of twentieth century popular music. I have all the respect in the world for Scott Walker as an artist and for his most recent works but those first four albums are the ones I reach for most often when I want to listen to him.
