5.0 out of 5 stars Burzum at its best., 17 Mar 2011
This review is from: Fallen (Audio CD)
I can't believe that still no one has reviewed this album. Is the world still paying attention? It should be! This is Burzum (aka Varg Vikerness) back at the top of his game. Unlike many others, I was a bit dissapointed by the previous album (Belus). By comparison Fallen sounds much cleaner, crisper and better produced. It has a more coherent and modern feel to it. The atmosphere is excellent and there is a very effective vocal variety on display here: from clean vocals to a more refined version of Varg's unique balck metal screech; and also the subtler, almost whispered versions of both styles. It hardly matters that this is all in Norwegian, and I barely noticed that some tracks were quite long. I strongly recommend this album, which encapsulates the contemporary essence of Varg.

[PS The one-star review is just copied word for word from the reviewers evaluation of the Belus album so don't take it too seriously (has the reviewer even heard this album?). Certainly if you think this album is 'trying to be scary' you have missed the point.]

Totally agree on the 'trying to be scary' part. Personally I think this blow's the Belus album away, even though I though Belus was ok.
