When the debut Burial album popped onto radars over the world, divided opinion soon gave way to cult status. An unlikely pairing of screwed up garage beats, moody bass and morose ambience heralded an era of genuinely emotive but strange dance music, cementing the album as a contemporary electronic classic.

9/10 Ant Staff review, 03 August 2007

So I've just whacked the new Burial CD on for the second time after really enjoying listening to it yesterday.

I was into the EP he did on Hyperdub a bit ago so I was well up for checking this out. I really, really like this a lot. The vibe is heavilly dubbed out, futuristic and sinister. The production is fat as hell, the percussion is crisp and shuffles along fantastically, the deep basslines are sick and the whole atmosphere the sounds create is just dark as hell. The vocals that creep into some of the tracks are dead powerful but its the appearance of The Space Ape on two of the tracks that is the highlight for me.

There's an oriental / eastern vibe running through a couple of the tracks and so if you were feeling the last Kode 9 release on Hyperdub then this is a huge recommendation. Proper headgear.


8/10 Carl Customer review, 9th March 2016

As darkness descended on the sleet-ridden A449 to Malvern I turned up the volume on the Burial CD. Definitely not the right environment but I thought I would give it a go. In fact it was perfect; The murky, malevolence of the music suited perfectly the situation I was in. Sleet driving at the windscreen, the sound of Burial became more intimate and the fractured rhythms coupled with noises that come from another planet come at you from all sides like aural headlights on full beam. There is a calm to the music as well however but this does not let you relax as there is very little resolution in the souring chord structure - This may be one for electronic purists but I am not and I still loved the whole album. It's not rock and roll but I like it.


10/10 Marcus Customer review, 29th April 2015

This is an album beyond comparison. Unspeakably dark and murky beats and vocal samples with a distinctly suburban feel. Listening through headphones on vinyl is an absolute pleasure because all the little pops and clicks you'd otherwise miss add to the intense atmosphere surrounding tracks like "U Hurt Me", "Southern Comfort", and my personal favourite "Distant Lights".

... Oh my goodness, what a track!

It feels charged with emotion and his other work is likely going to burn a Burial-sized hole in my wallet sometime soon.
