Details

[Edit]

Following the massive success of Nilsson Schmilsson Harry Nilsson took full advantage of the creative freedom awarded to him by RCA and recorded the thorny, contrarian rock ‘n’ roll celebration that is Son of Schmilsson. The label was horrified that the album didn’t contain a conventional ballad along the lines of “Without You,” and instead pursued a wild, feverish and highly schizophrenic vision of rock rambunctiousness. Despite the album’s reputation, it is in fact a joyous romp, and probably more fun to listen to than anything else Nilsson ever recorded. “Take 54,” “At My Front Door” and the Bowie-aping “Spaceman” rock harder than anything else in his catalog, but the album also offers some of Nilsson’s most poignant songs with “Remember (Christmas)” and “The Lottery.” At the time, the public couldn’t decide whether to appoint Nilsson a songwriting genius, or brand him a pop terrorist. Now it’s easy to appreciate him as a combination of the two, with Son of Schmilsson functioning as his testimony.
