Cuckooland is the eighth studio album by jazz rock artist Robert Wyatt. It was released in 2003 on Hannibal Records. The artwork is by Alfreda Benge. The Wire named Cuckooland the record of the year in its annual critics' poll. All tracks composed by Robert Wyatt; except where indicated. Old Europe" (Wyatt, Alfreda Benge) – 4:15. Tom Hay's Fox" – 3:33. Forest" (Wyatt, Alfreda Benge) – 7:55. Beware" (Karen Mantler) – 5:09. Cuckoo Madame" (Wyatt, Alfreda Benge) – 5:20.
As has become his custom, Wyatt offers a set of 16 new songs seemingly composed for a wide array of musicians including Annie Whitehead, Eno, David Gilmour, Tomo Hayakawa, Karen Mantler, Phil Manzanera, Paul Weller, and others he enlisted to record it. The album is divided into two halves. What divides the halves are in Wyatt's mind and aesthetics alone, as the disc feels like a seamless, unified whole

Robert Wyatt Cuckooland Hannibal/Rykodisc 2003. The marriage of jazz and rock musical styles has had a checkered history. The late '60s records of Cannonball Adderley, Gary Burton, Tony Williams, and Miles Davis stretched the boundaries of jazz music while successfully bringing it to a broad young audience. This album established a new style developed over the next several records, which focused on arty, sophisticated songwriting, keyboard textures, and lyrics that were alternately whimsical and trenchantly political (Wyatt is a confirmed leftist, though not a shrill one). Although Wyatt’s jazz leanings are long-standing (the liner notes to the first Soft Machine album mention that he astonished Mike Zwerin by being able to sing, note-for-note, Bird’s solo on Donna Lee ), they have only recently re-emerged explicitly in his solo work.
