    SCOTT 3 is the third solo album by the eccentric pop singer.
    CD is a picture disc.
    Personnel: Scott Walker (vocals).
    Audio Remasterer: Simon Heyworth.
    Liner Note Author: Keith Altham.
    Directors: Peter Knight; Wally Stott.
    Ethereal, exceptional, beautifully orchestrated pop music from one of the late 20th century's most idiosyncratic artists, SCOTT 3 contains a series of lush, mesmerizing songs that typify the free-spirited, experimental late 1960s. Scott Walker also gives free rein to his more epic impulses on songs like the careening "We Came Through," a prime example of the kind of marvelously over-the-top pieces that made him a byword for eccentricity, while "30th Century Man" is almost the exact opposite, featuring only the mellow-voiced singer and an acoustic guitar. There's also an alternately tense and serene version of "If You Go Away" that marks the artist as one of Jacques Brel's finest English interpreters.

  • Critic Reviews
    Q (9/00, p.131) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...[The] gems proliferate....A record collection without Scott Walker is like one without The Beatles, The Clash or The Smiths - incomplete."
    Mojo (Publisher) (8/00, p.97) - "...Resonates with the riches of the last great days of the pop narrative. The pop song rarely aspired to such literacy after this....forged in the white-hot glare of the pop process....[with] superb orchestrations..."
    NME (Magazine) (8/12/00, p.29) - Ranked #16 in The NME "Top 30 Heartbreak Albums" - "...Rarely has existentialism sounded so empathetic. SCOTT 3 is truly depressed, deeply sad and utterly moving."
