    Venetian Snares - My Downfall (Original Soundtrack)

    Follow-up of sorts to Aaron Funk's most acclaimed work under the Venetian Snares moniker - the fabulous "Rossz Csillag Allat Szuletett". "My Downfall" employs a similar conceit and revolves around beautiful string section work that from time to time gets modified, mangled and inverted, creating a kind of sweeping soundtrack that's prone to the odd bout of schizophrenia. The beats, when they come, are as frenetic and tight as you'd expect, creating a strange mixture of head, body and soul music finished off with a sinister coda that's a little unsettling, and brilliantly so. This is a real return to form from Venetian Snares and another album that should find itself at the top of his catalogue for all discerning fans and followers. Recommended purchase - Buy!
