014 - Burial & Four Tet

This track is the precursor to their most recent collaboration with Thom Yorke. I think it chugs along really nicely. Despite this, however, I find that sometimes it loses my attention, due in part to its length. It doesn't really go anywhere - or rather, it doesn't go far - but that's not necessarily a bad thing: not all tracks have to embark on some kind of journey. It wouldn't set any dancefloors alight, but would go down well at the end of a night. I like the jerky element of the melody coupled with the wispy vocal line characteristic of Burial. Most importantly, both artists have left their mark without overshadowing the other. Overall, a successful collaboration.
