The Confessions of Doctor Dream and Other Stories [Remastered] [Bonus Tracks]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Kevin Ayers' fifth album, The Confessions of Doctor Dream and Other Stories, is typical of his work. He sings in his distinctive deep voice with his cultured English accent (sounding a lot like John Cale) in songs set in a variety of pop styles, from hard rock to a kind of music hall approach. He is frequently playful and engaging, although his songs don't ultimately add up to much.
