Anniversary album: LAUGHING STOCK
Released: 16 September 1991 – 30 years ago today
AllMusic / Jason Ankeny said: “Virtually ignored upon its initial release, Laughing Stock continues to grow in stature and influence by leaps and bounds. Picking up where Spirit of
Eden left off, the album operates outside of the accepted sphere of rock to create music which is both delicate and intense; recorded with a large classical ensemble, it defies easy categorization, conforming to very few structural precedents… A work of staggering complexity and immense beauty, Laughing Stock remains an under-recognized masterpiece, and its echoes can be heard throughout much of the finest experimental music issued in its wake.” Score: 5/5.
Turn Up The Volume: Puzzling. Totally puzzling. Really dark stuff.
Fascinating, bringing Scott Walker’s mood swings to mind.
