The Four Tet collabs are great. Wolf Cub sounded like a plain and typical mix of both their stuff, but Moth and Nova are two of the best Burial songs.
Listening to Temple Sleeper now. Pretty cool. More arpy than I want Burial's stuff to be I guess, and none of the usual charm and hook to the vocals. And the arp just came back in but sounds like it sits against the beat now, which sounds a little awkward and is making the song drag slightly. 4 minutes now, this would be a good time for the song to end, but it all just changed up. It's okay.
The older tougher stuff he did.. Like Prayer, You Hurt Me. I think his newer stuff is too woozy, soft and long. For my tastes, that is. I think he's lost a lot of the focus he had with those first release.. it was all hurt or all longing on those tracks.. The newer ones are just sprawling undefined washes of sound to me. If you're into that, it's probably brilliant to you, but I'm not.
I'm still waiting for that album he club tracks he promised once. I figure he looks down a bit on club music, but he really had an awesome touch for it.
