Max Richter - 24 Postcards In Full Colour
It took me a while to really fully absorb this album but once I gave it a full, closer listen I realized it is amazing work, and while none of the songs venture outside of a couple of minutes of length the album works really well as a whole statement. It seamlessly drifts between intricate little piano or orchestral pieces and more avant guard explorations into slightly experimental moments that explore sound and sampled sounds as a means to create emotion and he pulls it off without getting in the way of the overall peacefulness cast onto you as you listen. The music here is like a dimly lit hallway, a little haunting but totally fulfilling through and through.
