3 stars Sweet Deceiver is another whole story.....perhaps one of his most mis-understood albums. Without question this is a bizzarre album with very little continuity and does feel like it spans a wide range of themes, moods and ideas. But that is what Ayers actually intended and what makes this album so effective for me. The beauty in kevin Ayers music is that it works on two levels...the immediate and then at a depth that you wont get from many artists. Listen carefully to the slightly Franco-tinged "Toujours La Voyage" will hear lots of Pink Floyd mixed with Leonard Cohen. Completely amazing ....
