Music Consumption: Tim Berne
02/24/2001 Tim Berne: The Empire Box

This 5-CD set of his early work shows a somewhat different sonic palatte than I've come to associate with Berne--in some instances, it seems as though he hasn't quite found his voice. (I'm thinking particularly of the, ahem, almost fusiony pieces on disc 2.) He really starts to find his groove as we know it on discs 3, 4, and 5, but there are moments on the others that are well worth a listen.
