PopMatters reviews Max Richter’s 24 Postcards in Full Colour

PopMatters reviews Max Richter’s 24 Postcards in Full Colour:

[T]he album as a whole plays like a sampler, like a full album preview run-down at Allmusic.com or Amazon. The ringtone is not supposed to be about unsatiated desire. It’s supposed to be about rapid consummation. A normal person wants to end the sound of a ringing phone, not let it ring through to see where the song is going. 24 Postcards in Full Colour might almost be condemnable as a rotten tease were it not so powerful in its absences. It lets you see where one might go and all the things one might say, but the call never comes.
