Scott Walker has had a log and evolving career. Starting with a more standard popular music fair with dark tinges, which over multiple releases slowly seeped their way into experimental dominance on his works over the past three decades. For record listeners who enjoy hearing an artist develop, there are few out there that have developed so extremely as Scott Walker and yet still have a mood that resonates throughout their entire catalogue of work.
Best of Both worlds goes back the late 60’s and the beginning stages of His solo career. His iconic vocals haunt almost any instrumentation he sings over. It’s this sinister edge added to the orchestral accompaniment that really elevates the lyrics and the track as a whole to a level other versions of the song from different vocalists can’t achieve.
