Boomkat Product Review:
'Versions' leaves out the vocal accompaniment and exposes the production as it drifts off into instrumental effervescence.
Look back at our archive of reviews for releases on the Burial Mix label and you'll probably realise that we've always had a reverential approach to what these people do. This second installment divides itself into Vocal and Instrumental "Versions" (the Vocal tracks are collected seperately on a second LP), displaying the last seven releases in their entirety, plus the newer "Mash Down Babylon" (a new take on the awesome, rare as hell "March Down Babylon"), and features a quite simply breathtaking collection of tracks that in their time have all been singles of the week for us here. Just thinking of the majestic exuberance of "King in My Empire", or the breathtaking midnight spaciousness of "Making Histroy" brings goosebumps to this already seasoned listener, and that's just an opening gambit.
