I think this is some of the most philosophically significant rap music to emerge from London in the past decade. Spaceape delivers his verses on this like he's soliloquizing, and with his untimely death having robbed us of more great works, I'm thankful that this EP made it to the fore for us!
Favorite track: Pictures On The Wall.
The Spaceape had that deep dark voice that made him unique alongside his flow. Neither hiphop nor spoken word, more something in the between with a big dose of poetry. He always was the perfect complimentary to Kode9's music.
Favorite track: Devil Is A Liar.

perhaps not so innovative, given Burial's stylistic parameters, these tracks are more like a frolic, made of fragments who are like distant relatives, getting nowhere really, but still being enjoyable in their atmospheric anticipation. This is more so in the case of Nightmarket, which fits what I like to think of as lo-fi trance, as anticipated in a superb track like ashtray wasp, although with a beatless and more orchestral approach in this case. aelena
