July 25, 2006
Another strange association with this album, I've no idea why I've got this album, other than I saw this animation and the resulting research into The Walker Brothers led me to finding this spectacular album. The vocals, lyrics are faultless and the arrangements always sound fresh and engaging (check the bass line in The Old Man's Back Again). It's a short 32 minutes long, but it's half an hour I never mind repeating again and again.

Pulp have always been one of Walker's followers, the lush arrangements (especially with their last [?] album I Love Life, with which Scott was involved with) and Jarvis' delivery very much in debt to his style. Jarvis Cocker has been hitting the headlines as of late, for his latest song in all it's glory has been going round the MySpace chitter–chatter.
