Cale, John - Caribbean Sunset

Vendor: Island Records
Released: 1983

Island 205986 made in Germany.
Vinyl NM. Cover EX.
Arguably the weakest album of John Cale's career (some fans would elect the follow-up, 1985's similarly lightweight Artificial Intelligence, for the honor), 1984's Caribbean Sunset is something of a mess. The songs are among the poppiest of Cale's career, and one gets the sense that it's meant to be Cale's attempt at a straight-up pop album, especially given the Jimmy Buffett-like title and cover photo. Yet everything about the album's arrangements and production undercut the promise of slickness and commercialism; Cale's production is uncharacteristically cruddy, with the rhythm section in particular sounding as if they were recorded from two rooms over and his vocals, often unnecessarily harsh, sounding completely disconnected from the music.
