    The closest cousin to Odd’s sound is M83, but siphoned through the American ghetto instead of the French countryside. [Filter Mini, May 2005, p.16]

    By the third listen, Burner is starting to feel like a great 21st century pop record. [Sep 2005, p.103]

    Pushes the boundaries of what exactly makes music. [#10, p.113]

    Damn odd. [Jul 2005, p.186]
  5. For a genre that wants to evoke mysterious, uncharted territories, it's beginning to show signs of predictability, and while Odd Nosdam hews admirable results from it, it's just about time for an increasingly defined border to be pushed outward, into more nebulous territory, again.
  6. That’s a comparison that could be made between Burner and Bip’s Blue Eyed in the Red Room (2005): similar, but a little better.

But from the opening track "Untitled One" until "Flying Saucer Attack" you are rewarded with some truely unusual and photogenic music. On some tracks Nosdam uses sampled voices from streets as fuzzy beats crackle like heat off concrete building tension until the end. I definitely enjoyed it. And after a decidely lackluster batch of summer '05 releases..vote this the underrated best CD of the summer. Expand
