While starting his career as one half of blue eyed soul crooners, The Walker Brothers, Scott Walker went solo and went on to have quite an interesting career that has shown his personal style develop into something that is unequaled. Haunting and deeply personal, Walker's music takes many dramatic elements and turns them into truly moving and picturesque scenarios. "Climate of Hunter" was released in 1984 and was ten years after his last solo record "We Had It All". The change in sound gives this album something akin to a mid 80's Roxy Music album but is a bit more heavy handed and troubled in general. Anyone who gets into this should definitely see the film 30 Century Man as it will kick-start your obsession into high gear.
