    The tracks included in Dust are thoughtful, introspective canticles that are best enjoyed under the fog of your favorite incense and the glow of a candle or two.

    No!
    The whole album is as musically stirring and creative as anything TMBG have ever done, and that’s saying a lot.

    Black Letter Days is a truly special work, and should be treated as such. Don't let the best record of the year go overlooked.

    There's no way you won't be listening to this CD on repeat for anything less than two weeks straight.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 100 Critic Score
    Having covered so much territory, the album leaves you completely fulfilled--like any nightclub act--but ready to do it all over again the next night.

    “Weeds,” an excellent tune which compares the English working class to this type of plants, is only one of the various epic, melodramatic tunes in the key of Scott Walker (who produced the record) present here that use elements of nature to symbolise aspects of modern society and the human condition itself.

    A summery pop journey, complete with mellow melodies and gentle guitars.

    Burn and Shiver shows Azure Ray maturing and improving the quality of their craft while settling into their familiar, pleasant formula.

    • 90 Critic Score
    If the young, brooding Waits had done this score it would have been too much--too miserable--but our older, wiser Waits possesses the perfect combination of cynicism and idealism to pull it off.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 90 Critic Score
    Rarely has a record balanced such quality lyrics with such pretty music; it is also a rare occasion when a record can be both deeply sad and uplifting at the same time.

    An album whose scope, diversity, wit and heart make it instantly the best album of 2002.

    With this album, the deejay only adds to his rep and further solidifies his place amongst Hip-Hop's elite producers and turntablists.
