Jandek - You Walk Alone (1988)


Jandek
You Walk Alone (1988, Corwood Industries)

"I don't know how to effectively describe this, my first post in over five months. I could say it's a masterpiece. I could say it's strange. I could over alliterate as I often do and say it's "a bewildering beast of breathtaking beauty" (I kind of like that). I can and will do all of that. It is absolutely all of those things and more. The only thing that matters though is that I just love the way it sounds. Don't listen to or not listen to this because it's Jandek. Listen to it because it's one of the best records of the 1980's." - DD

I'm still making my mind up about Jandek. I love the live electric stuff, because it's the sort of clatter that's right up my street. Thanks very much for this.

As with most artists, there is definitely some Jandek I can take or leave. But the stuff I take and tend to cherish.
