Released in 1969, SCOTT 4 caps off a remarkable quartet of records (all issued in the span of less than three years), and arguably stands as Scott Walker's most accomplished album. On this 10-track set, the British-based singer-songwriter unveiled his first collection of entirely original numbers, marking a notable departure from the earlier precedent of having three Jacques Brel tunes per studio outing. Here Walker's utterly distinctive chamber-pop aesthetic appears in more restrained and refined form, as revealed on the urgent-yet-graceful "The Seventh Seal" (based on the revered Ingmar Bergman film of the same name) and the gentle, meditative "Boy Child". Those looking for the pomp-and-circumstance of earlier Walker material will find hints of it on "The Old Man's Back Again (Dedicated to the Neo-Stalinist Regime)", but the predominant mood of SCOTT 4 is set by lush and layered, though relatively subtle, string arrangements that perfectly complement his deep, expressive voice. While Walker would issue other important and intriguing recordings in the decades that followed, this album marks the end of his highly influential late-'60s heyday.
