This release from 1969 stands as Scott Walker's most accomplished album. His first collection of entirely original numbers - marking a notable departure from the earlier precedent of having three Jacques Brel tunes per studio outing. The predominant mood of Scott 4 is set by lush and layered, though relatively subtle, string arrangements that perfectly complement his deep, expressive voice. while Walker would issue other important and intriguing recordings in the decades that followed, this album marks the end of his highly influential late-'60s heyday.
