116 of 1001 Albums: Scott Walker's Scott 2


History
Scott Walker keeps it simple by just naming is albums Scott, Scott 2, Scott 3, and well you get the drift.  Walker was most popular in the U.K. though he was American, and topped charts overseas with his music. I would like to know why he didn't find as huge a fan base in America. His single "Jackie" was met with a lot of controversy with it's lyrics involving virgins, and homosexuals. This led to it's inevitable ban from the radio.  Without having to research the album you will know what the album is talking about if you give it a listen. 

My Thoughts
This album will catch you very quick with it's dance tunes.  I had no idea what to expect so I was very surprised. Also, the album is quite flamboyant.  You have quite a variety of music on here though. Sometimes you get something that seems folksy, and then other times it sounds like 60s pop. Scott Walker probably motivated a lot more boldness with his music in artist that would follow. For me personally, I'm not a huge fan of the style of music, or the sounds of Walker's voice. 

Rating 2 of 5.
