This album was odd, Darkstar are a dubstep/dance duo who have released some really popular singles on Hyperdub and with their first album comes a very cold, forlorn, dark synth-pop esque album that was really a breath of fresh air in the cold winter days. Absolutely loved it. With the album the duo added a vocalist for most tracks that really accents the music.
At first I didn't like it, I'll admit, I expected a bunch more club oriented tracks they are known for. But a month or so later I accidentally gave it a listen and fell in love with it's melancholic sound, dark/beautiful synths and overall pleasing tracks. Really just a great album. Aidy's Girl really fits right in and adds a lot to the album I think, not that it is a good example of what this album is like, but it really does help set the mood.
Call this my x-mas gift to all you, sorry for the lack of updates but I've been busy (idk whats up with the other folks but I think they are busy too). So enjoy this, very good album that shouldn't be over looked. And if you like it look out for the upcoming James Blake album coming out in February.
