iTunes Review

It’s one of the stranger stories in popular music that the first four tracks of Nite Flights played a major part in shaping popular music for the coming decade. Released in 1978, Nite Flights was the third reunion album for European pop sensation the Walker Brothers. While each member is given room to pursue their interests, Scott Walker went into these sessions with a new fire underneath him. In part, inspired by Brian Eno, David Bowie and Iggy Pop, Walker went even further on his tracks — “Shutout,” “Fat Mama Kick,” “Nite Flights” and “The Electrician” – and inspired Bowie and Midge Ure of Ultravox, among the many, and the New Romantic and synth-pop world of the early ‘80s was on its way.  The remainder of the album is quite a bit different. Gary Walker’s “Death of Romance” plays towards smooth adult-contemporary jazz-pop. “Rhythms of Vision” come closest to Bob Seger. John Walker’s “Disciples of Death” also plays like radio-ready pop. It’s no wonder that Scott Walker would return to his solo career with an avant-garde vengeance.

Customer Reviews

One of the most underrated albums of the past 40 years

Fantastic songwriting and production, with Scott Walker's distinct baritone overlaying everything. The forefathers of today's spacey alt-rock. They were a HUGE influence on David Bowie, Brian Eno and Radiohead. Just get it, if you don't like it, something's wrong with you.

Hint ...

At least get tracks one through four ... (Scott's songs)

On Scott

I only started listening to Scott Walker because i'm a massive bowie fan and so when I listened to him sing nite flights and "my death", the latter being a Jacques Brel song, but that he ultimately listened to via Scott I thought it was good for my personal education to take a listen to both…I was stunned that I hadn't heard of him before. I've grown to love Scott Walker for so many reasons and these first four songs on this album show how he creates, what he wants to create, and on his terms. Nite flights continues to be one of my favorite songs ever.

They weren't British, they weren't brothers, and their real names weren't Walker, but Californians Scott Engel, John Maus, and Gary Leeds were briefly huge stars in England (and small ones in their native land) at the peak of the British Invasion. Engel and Maus were playing together in Hollywood when drummer Leeds suggested they form a trio and try to make it in England. And they did -- with surprising swiftness, they hit the top of the British charts with "Make It Easy on Yourself" in 1965. "The...
