I think I have never heard such a personal album like this one and the Syd recordings do not come close as those were so sloppy. Like any good solo album, the list of musicians appearing is permeated by some real stars. You know, this was two - a little over two years ago. Much of the lyrical material on this album may seem a bit confusing, or nonsensical, but it kind of does make a lot of sense to me. Substantial, melodic, but sometimes detached, freely roaming and wilfully strange piano and importunate, entrancing percussion and imploring saxophone. But even all these I find positive.

But for Nic, I think that that - I mean, you know, that's what he says - that those three months were essential. Alfie would also have a part to play on this album more about that under the "Alife" section. They are most commonly spotted rolling across the North American plains, chasing convective thunderstorms. A contestant competes during the final of the Most Beautiful Bottom in the World competition in Paris. Nerve-wracking, hair-raising, flabbergasting, spine-tingling. And they would wake up in the morning, and they'd be sober.
ROBERT WYATT Rock Bottom reviews
Named for their smooth, lentil-like appearance, altocumulus lenticularis clouds pictured above are believed to be one of the most common explanations for UFO sightings. They form from small amounts of moisture in the air ahead of approaching weather fronts. The lyrics are the highlight of this track, as they are bizarre, but strangely beautiful, just like everything Wyatt does. Often seen bulging from the anvil of a severe thunderstorm or from the ragged clouds in a storm's wake, they usually indicate that the worst weather has passed. It's a higher power and things like that.
But as things went forward, I mean, the last time Nic relapsed, you know, he'd been sober for a long time. As a result, these storms typically dissipate within about 30 minutes of starting. The lyrics are once again quirky and compelling. The first two tracks are incredible. Now I love my life and stuff. While it is true that the music and lyrics for a couple of these songs had already been written for a band that was being inaugurated during the party in which Wyatt had his terrible accident, the fact is that the aura of cohesiveness definitely works steadily all along this album's repertoire.
