Robert Wyatt: Dondestan (Gramavision)
Ira Robbins, Rolling Stone, 6 February 1992
THROUGHOUT A career as singular and honest as his expressive voice, Robert Wyatt has remained a true progressive. From his days in the Soft Machine, advancing jazz concepts into Sixties rock, the drummer-keyboardist has become England's elder statesman of political pop. Capable of mentioning radical polemicist Noam Chomsky in a song without missing a beat, Wyatt has a knack for turning left-wing intellectualism into palatable art.
