The real reward comes from letting go and being caught off guard when it reaches its highest highs and lowest lows.

    Scott Walker - Bish Bosch

    I listened to it on my drive up to my parents' place for Thanksgiving today. First off, it's musically less dense than either Tilt or The Drift. That's not a bad thing, as the musical cues he uses have more room to really jar the listener without as much going on. It creates a more live, thriving sound to the music, making it more dynamic and active with the lyrics. I noticed he's got quite a bit more prominent guitar on this one: at points things get almost metal or Swans-ish.

    The album also seems, even more than the last two, to be focused on lyrics/storytelling. On first listen it was hard to really decipher all the ins and outs of that, but suffice to say Walker has more variance in his presentation lyrically and vocally this time around. He makes fart jokes, and has a line, "If shit were music, you'd be a brass band," and also has the single most terrifying moment I've heard on an album in ages (if you can't pick out what I'm talking about, you didn't listen to the album.) Also, surprisingly, there are at least two songs (Phrasing and Dimple) that are almost catchy, and that I would have played on my radio show back in the day. And finally, the end of the last song is so demented and bizarre that it's almost inexplicable.

    It's a difficult, brutally austere record, a great statement from a great artist, and the most immediately engaging (for me anyway) of Walker's three hell music albums.
    Quote Originally Posted by bmack86 View Post
    Also, the only thing that I can really compare it to this year is The Seer, but whereas that one is a culmination of the Swans aesthetic, this is a paring back instrumentally combined with an expansion of musical styles.

    I can't wait to hear what other people think of the album, and theories on how all the disparate tropical musical styles fit into the record.
    Quote Originally Posted by wmgaretjax View Post

    Quote Originally Posted by wmgaretjax View Post

    i want to sit down and figure out the IVIXIVI or whatever stuff also... love the rhythmic phrasing of those bits.

    edit: listening again... yeah, the narrator is telling the jokes. i think he's a comedian. hence the need for the agent who fucks him at the end of the song (the same greased pole he is sitting on?)... i love scott walker. please tour.

    oh, and i have no fucking idea what's going on in that terrifying oedipal bit in the middle... but it fucks me up every time.

Vocally the sounds just like he did before, he's just dropping his register a bit and his phrasing is different.
