Album artwork for Ruth Is Stranger Than Richard by Robert Wyatt

Highlighting Wyatt's interests in township arrangements and ensemble playing, made explicit by calling a track 'Team Spirit', RISTR inverts the inward meditations of his previous album, Rock Bottom, outwards. The result is a set that startles with its rhythmic instinct and shape shifting composition. Drawing on both Wyatt's breezy way with a time signature, and his ability to use his voice as a truly resonant instrument, the record contains not so much songs as abstract chamber pieces that bathe and unfurl in a warmth and stillness of their own.back in stock. robert wyatt's follow-up to 'rock bottom' was expedient, arriving in 1975, just a year after its predecessor. it uses the same jazz-rock template but is an altogether more structured work; a kind of more sensible, older brother to rock bottom's uncontrollable younger sibling.
