4 stars Wyatt spent about a decade tinkering a way with compilations and EPs before bringing out his sole studio album of the 1990s, the sunny and benign Shleep. It opens with a jaunty tune about Wyatt's imagination running away from itself, which is a rather good summation of the album; with the aid of legendary guests such as Brian Eno and Paul Weller, Wyatt (and, for most of the tracks, his songwriting partner and wife Alfreda Benge) produces a range of tunes ranging from whimsical pop to free jazz/ambient fusion nursery rhymes and everything in between. In other words, it's a mature and relaxed revisit of most of the different musical territories he has visited in his long career, and it's hard not to be won over by it.
