9/10 Phil Staff review, 15 July 2010

Max. The Max, The Maxxer, Max is back! With a brand new album on Fat Cat! Curb your excitement neo classical funsticks, the time is nigh to get all misery induced again with a new album from the lord of melancholy (I'm really trying to liven this up... is it working?). Infra is a collaboration with Wayne Macgregor and Julian Opie for The Royal Ballet from 2008. Anyone who knows me at all knows how obsessed I am with Max Richter. Pretty much everything he's done is a work of unparalleled genius with the possible exception of 24 postcards which is just good and not genius. I've heard Infra a few times and I can say he's back on form and if anything it's more like his earlier work. As ever you get the perfect blend of orchestral and electronics. The mood is sombre with the strings pulling at your heartstrings giving you goose pimples. In between all the emotive business you get some more experimental electronics which refreshing to hear from Max as it's kind of evolving his sound a bit more. The piano on Journey is the saddest thing I've heard in my life (reminds me a bit of a tune from the Goodbye Lenin soundtrack). Amazingly potent and powerful music which I genuinely can't recommend enough. Motherfucking awesome!


10/10 kamikaze Customer review, 17th October 2010

Although he's one of those fellas you hear about constantly, this is the first record I've actually picked up by him, and what a pleasant surprise it was.  If you've not picked this one up yet, go get it, you're Infra treat, it's off the (Richter) scale, etc, etc, etc.  Melancholy as a Monday morning, but holds a bucket-load of beauty unrivaled by pretty much anything else I've heard since Rachel's used to put a few more records out than they do these days.  I'm absolutely rinsin' this record, a little concerned I'll wear it out if I don't stop soon, though no apparent danger of breaking the spell this album's taken on me.  Glorious.
