#843 Robert Wyatt – Shleep

Another artist I have never heard of is English musician Robert Wyatt. He was highly praised for his seventh album Shleep from 1997. One of the genres on the album is  Canterbury scene, which I have never heard of either. It is from the city of Canterbury in England. It is associated with progressive rock.

The album had a huge improvisational jazz feel to it. I like jazz, but not always. I think I prefer jazz live or if I am in a jazzy mood. The only song that was kind of interesting to me was “Heaps of Sheeps“. I would not say this is horrible, quite the contrary, I think it is filled with talented musicians, but it was a bit dreary like English weather. 5/10.
