4 stars Robert Wyatt. Rock Bottom

What an odd album Rock Bottom is. Its has a strong melancholy vibe to it, but at the same time it has a fun playful vibe. If thinking how is that possible? don't worry I am to. I have no idea how he Robert Wyatt managed to create this sound. It is an amazing accomplishment and I have yet to hear anything like it again. Maybe I should look further into Mr. Wyatt discography. This album starts out with "sea song" which is my favorite tack on Rock Bottom. It like I said about the rest of the Album has a melancholy feel to it but its lyrics are strange and funny. My next favorite track is probably "Alifib". This album has some classic Canterbury qualities to it. Its jazzy and it has goofy lyrics. The only reason why I didn't give this album 5 stars is because at times the lyrics don't make sense and they are just to goofy. "Little Red Robin Hood Hit the Road" is an example of this weirdness. But If you like the Canterbury Scene you will Love this album.
