Robert Wyatt's voice is as distinctive and subtle an instrument as Tom Waits's or Bessie Smith's. Wyatt knows how to throw a band together, too, choosing musicians who'll do their respective things complementarily, subtly. This disc brims with woozy, lush underwater-sounding, underground pop, augmented by chaps like Fred Frith and Brian Eno.
