Originally released a year after the increasingly iconic »The Disintegration Loops«, »Melancholia« still stands as William Basinski's second most beloved album.
It is truly a sight and sound to behold. Like many of Basinski's most soul-stirring works, »Melancholia« began as a series of short tape loops captured in the early 1980s. Basinski then stored them away for decades, revisiting them at a different time in his life, at which point they took on a stunning new sound all their own – one that many consider to be among the finest of the past decade.
