John Cale: Music For A New Society (Island)
Richard Cook, NME, 18 September 1982
A STRONGER, loving world... The fulcrum of John Cale's work is its granite paradox, a loathsome ugliness garbed in the colours of rhapsody. Cale's abiding passion for Brian Wilson's music and his unwillingness to abandon his classical leanings make his recordings things of beauty but beauty bloodied by arbitrary terrors, old guerilla violence, insanities.
