I really enjoyed the track Nath posted with his nomination, Archangel. It was wonderfully atmospheric and subtle, but by the end of the song, I was hoping for a change which never came. I'd love to hear more, but I would hope it's not repetitive. I trust that he isn't given how highly regarded he is. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
Not many artists have the ability to produce music with such geniune emotion on a consistent basis. Not afraid to take risks, Burial has changed his direction slightly in the past year adapting more of a jungle feel slightly reminiscent of his earlier work. Not many artists can take samples from an upbeat RnB classic and fit it unnoticeably into a dark, yet beautifully produced track. Burial can and does, time after time. You'll know a Burial track when you hear it. He generates an aura with his productions. A special and distinctive sound. The music is a real journey and certainly one worth taking. He's in my opinion, a musical genius.
Worth noting it's much better to listen to on a good soundsystem/earphones. So much goes into his tracks that can be easily missed with a poor system. You'll appreciate it much more.
I couldn't really pick a single favourite track, as I love so much of his music. As for a favourite album, I can't look past Untrue. It stuck to me whenever I first heard it.
