Assertive sounding without shedding itself of the romantic emotionalism of the 3 minute pop song, Cooler’s “Buried” has the cinematic quality of a coming of age movie – all tears then good feelings. Not to say that the song is inherently sad, but there is a wistful quality that is shot through the song via distance and reverb.
This is one of those songs out of time, as I could hear this being recorded any year since the late 70’s and it wouldn’t be out of place. It’s a timeless quality that really gives the song a sense of strength that really keeps the song going after the 50th time you’ve listened to it. (Yeah, sorry 50 of those plays were me)
