5.0 classicRhody1 | September 12th 09

absolutely unique in every sense: it's not rock, it's not jazz, it's just great deep music. In my top 3 of all time. Only comparable with the brilliant last (solo) record of Mark Hollis

Knowing the sad story behind Rock Bottom, it's surprising to receive a mischievous, playful album instead of the poignant one you imagined. The music gets dark, murky and primal but you're never too far away from the next daft turn of phrase or absurd poem. The songs wriggle unpredictably but always cling to the emotional - although Rock Bottom is replete with brilliant instrumentalists it is vivid and touching, never virtuosic or boastful. One of the coziest albums.

5.0 classicmopman | July 5th 12

One of the most intense albums i have ever heard. The lyrics and vocals are what make it instantly likeable but it really does become a progressive rock masterpiece in the second half. sudden reverse vocals and feverish piano work laden throughout, lots of hooks. Just a good album throughout, and I think Robert Wyatt is sort of an under appreciated musician

4.5 superbBiOZed | September 17th 11

Dissonants horns, perfect violins, crazy percussions, unexpectable lyrics and pronounciation, amazing ambiance. Unique.
