Album Review: HoboSapiens by John Cale

Excellent, Based on 1 Critic

The Guardian - 80
Based on rating 4/5

The word Hobosapiens derives from an article John Cale wrote about Bob Dylan, but there's little other evidence of the Velvet Underground legend looking back. A fearless presence on the avant garde for four decades, the 60-year-old has made his most direct, energised and modernist work in years. Cale has used plenty of modern studio gadgetry, working with Lemon Jelly's Nick Franglen as producer, and vaguely tapped into his current fondness for Beck and the Beta Band.
