The Devil's Walk is a very evocative and beautiful piece of work, right from the start. As others have eluded to, it has a much more organic and 'natural' sound compared to Apparat's other work, yet it somehow feels like an electronica album.
It is, at first, difficult to describe. Gentle piano meets strings and deep, electronic undertones that combine to create some deeply moving pieces of music throughout. The production value, as you would expect from Apparat, is top notch - And it is this that forms part of why each element gels together seamlessly.
Pieces like 'Goodbye' are a fantastic example of the warm, organic beauty of the album and the track 'Candil De La Calle' almost boarders on sounding like a Telefon Tel Aviv track, yet it still manages to encompass the trademark warmth and acoustic that this album has.
In summary, this album is smart, beautiful, exquisitely produced and absolutely essential listening in my book.
Do not let this slip your ears.
