It's OK, I guess, but I really don't think it holds a candle to his Kindred and Truant EPs which were released the following year. They're both longer, more memorable and varied than Street Halo which I just think sounds pretty basic and is far less engaging by comparison. Stolen Dog is the most enjoyable track on here IMO.

Maybe it will grow on me with future listens, but for now I think his 2012 efforts overshadow this one.

All three are masterful. Street halo gets a lot of love but for me NYC stands out as being one of the prettiest things he has ever made. The way the full vocal melody plays through at the start and then never plays again until near the end is genius.

The reason why Burial is such an icon in today's music scene is because it's a dramatic contrast to the oftentimes soulless music you hear being churned out by typical house/dub/techno producers today. You know - the dark, unresponsive, mechanical, over-digitized, and needlessly complex music that gets played in today's clubs. Entering the picture is Burial, with their moody songs filled with emotion and melancholy, their atmospheric landscapes, and their soulful vocal snippets. In "Street Halo" and other releases, Burial is putting back the "music" into "electronic music". The title track is the strongest, and most danceable one on this record, but don't sleep on any of the others, as they all demonstrate a comparably high level of production quality.

Why this release got so early day cat number HDB013? Is it so old track?

Does anyone else have a plethora of dents on this vinyl or is it just my copy? It seems to play ok. The majority are on the B side.
