4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome and atmospheric late-night concept album, 23 Jan 2012
This review is from: Black Sun (Audio CD)
I must admit that I only discovered Kode9 after becoming a huge fan of Burial. I wanted to find more music that evoked the same nocturnal atmosphere; this album was my first stop. And I have to say, it is awesome!

The productions are second-to-none and don't rely solely on the same old 2-step beats. The kick drums are deep and hit you in chest and the bass lines throb like nobody's business. The Spaceape is also a very talented lyricist and an intriguing vocalist; granted he is not a "singer" - more of a poet - but it only adds to the mood, especially when coupled with Cha Cha's understated yet haunting melodies. Whatever time of day you listen to this, it will instantly make you wish for darkness so you can feel its effect even more. I love to listen to this when i'm driving in the city at night. Immense!

Its hard to pick stand-out tracks on a concept album, because I don't personally think its the sort of album where you can just pick a few tracks off to throw on a mixtape. It works best listening from start to finish. That being said, I will contradict myself slightly to say its only weakness is that one or two of the tracks don't really go anywhere, which is the only reason I haven't given this a full 5 stars.

Definitely one of my favourite albums of 2011.
