Is he not one of the greatest singer/songwriters in the history of the universe?

Plastic Palace People...
Montagu Terrace...

I LOVE 'Tilt' actually, its inaccessibility and darkness make it all the more powerful

Yes

i hate it when people force me to be cheerful. I think one should experience to the full the whole gamut of emotions.

There isn't that much Scott stuff i don't like; "Climate of Hunter" is a favourite; particularly "Track Three", which also had an excellent video.

I am not sure about being a great songwriter. I think much of his success is that he has generally worked with excellent arrangers such as Wally Stott (in the old days) and more recently with Brian Gascoigne. Having said that, 'Farmer In The City' is a great song, whether played with full orchestra or solo acoustic guitar.

He is definitely one of the greatest singers.
