I dunno, I just don’t get it anymore. The last ten years or so have just been like a repetition of the same thing, a repeat drop around Xmas time, some half baked ravey ambient stuff and that’s it?
I miss the Burial of the Block Party remix, ‘Unite’ and ‘Crackle Blues’ remix, the first two LPs and the first five or six EPs. The gorgeous ‘Nova’ and ‘Moth’
That’s how I want to remember. Not this stuff. Where’s the imagination of ‘Stairwell’ gone? The strangeness of the Flying Lotus collaboration? This stuff just sounds like grey auto pilot. I’ll hold on to my early years collection because it’s immense. Not this shite....so sad. I’m done, thanks for the early stuff, I’m out.
Amuses me though that some get so butthurt and start crying when a little criticism comes their hero’s way. :)
Maybe this coincides with Hyperdub’s loss of quality control as well, used to be a cool label but their output has been questionable the last decade. This is just my view though so take it with a pinch of salt....

Are A2/B2 the best Burial songs ever? No. Are they good tracks? Yeah, second half of A1 rips and the vibes on B2 are like 'Come Down to Us' Burial-esque prom dance.

Blackdown tracks are also solid. A1 is a real kick drum workout. But pretty much every release on Keysound is good so idk why people keep whining about something not sounding like 2007.

Dark Gethsemane was actually really good I thought, Space Cadet is ok. If he's sticking with the pattern of saving his best work for Hyperdub, fair enough - will be great to hear what comes next.

Instead of complaining about the music, which honestly isn’t even half as bad as the commenters are making out, my pressing is very good. Flat, good clean sound and range.

Not really my thing but the very end of Dark Gethsemane is killer and very unique for a burial tune, I wish the whole track was built around that section.

Think there's a sample of Man Parrish's Hip Hop Be Bop on Space Cadet..I like all the tracks I must say.Not mind blowing but worth a definite purchase.

"We must shock this nation with the power of love"... x50

This is a lowpoint for Burial. It was actually painful to sit through.
