ROY ORBISON ‘Wild Hearts (ZTT). Hear the Big O a-curlin and a-wailin around this truly gothic opus, as brilliant as anything hes ever done and keeping the ZTT catalogue as pristine as ever. Snitched from the soundtrack of Nic Roegs ‘Insignificance (and presumably heralding an LP), ‘Wild Hearts treads that familiar Orbison territory twixt grizzling morbidity and palpitating hysteria — this is no subtle performance. This is no small record.
