Hmmm...Scott 2 may have reached #1 in the UK album charts but it is not as strong as it's predecessor. There are too many songs slipping towards MOR and the tunes are not are memorable. Patchy.

Wiki Notes:
Scott 2 follows the formula of Walker's début release, with a mixture of contemporary covers ("Black Sheep Boy", "The Windows of the World") Jacques Brel interpretations ("Jackie", "Next", "The Girls and the Dogs"), film songs ("Wait Until Dark", "Come Next Spring") and his own original compositions ("The Amorous Humphrey Plugg", "The Girls from the Streets", "Plastic Palace People", "The Bridge"). The content of his own and Brel's material was markedly more risqué than on Scott, with "Jackie", "Next" and "The Girls from the Streets" standing out with themes of sexual tribulations and decadent lifestyles.

Added to the Playlist:
Jackie
Next
The Girls from the Streets
I love all Scott four firsts albums but I prefer Scott 2 than Scott, Scott 3 is masterpiece ... and Climate Of Hunter is stunning.
