Richard Youngs – Beyond The Valley Of Ultrahits (Album Download)


This is already out of print, so it should be safe to post (Only 100 CDR’s were made). This supposedly started as a dare to see if Youngs could do a straight-up pop album. I’d say he succeeded. This is the polar opposite of the widely-enjoyed Sapphie. The quivering falsetto from that record is gone, as is the minimalism and soul-destroying atmosphere. There are tons of drum machines and so-so harmonies, but that’s not meant to be a detracting statement. Ultrahits reminds me of some of the stuff on the Left of the Dial boxset from a few years back at times, and at other times, well, I don’t know, maybe Robert Wyatt. One of the best of 2009. God bless Scotland !
