The exceptionally talented Pop artist Robert Wyatt has released him CD entitled Cuckooland. I am very confident and happy to announce that I believe Robert Wyatt fans, and Pop fans alike will be pleased with this one. With the release of Cuckooland Robert Wyatt's artistic excellence is on full display as Wyatt has once again delivered a brilliant collection of tracks that could very well be him best work to date.

Cuckooland launches with a great track, Just A Bit, that I suspect will be heard on radio stations everywhere, and deservedly so. It's a really nice track.

One of the nicer things about a CD like this is when the talent is this rich even if Pop isn't your favorite style you still can't help but appreciate the greatness of the artist.

I'm of the opinion that Cuckooland is certainly Robert Wyatt's best work in a few years. A totally enjoyable CD and an outstanding release. What I call must have music. I give it two thumbs up because it's a collection that even the casual Pop fan can appreciate and enjoy.

While the entire album is outstanding the truly standout tunes are track 1 - Just A Bit, track 6 - Cuckoo Madame, and track 16 - La Ahada Yalam.

My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [ in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 13 - Life Is Sheep. What a nice track!
