The Burial remix is a massive disappointment. To see this from such a talented producer is a real shame, it could have been amazing.

Oh dear,everything about the original sounds amazing,and then there's the burial remix,gone are the silky vocal tones that actually remind you of the 'real' inner city life that goldie imagined back in 94,and although it should work on paper with burial also a great conveyer of inner city blues,and I'm an ardent burial fan from the start,the remix fails on so many levels-a classic case of 'if it ain't broke don't fix it'.If you want to hear classic burial in the hear and now switch over to his remix of deep summer by monic which is an absolute corker.

Not that anyone is remotely interested, but the Burial remix contains a sample of the Playstation game Dino Crisis at 0:45. It's the sound of trying to access a DDK locked door without both the Input Disc and the Code Disc.

Dear Discogs sharks,
REPRESS IS COMING SOON as confirmed by the label.
So keep your copies for the next Voyager Golden Record sent in space.

2 stars to this, and thats only cuz the original song is there and its brilliant. that burial rmx is total bollocks, absolutely the money$ remix. shame on the guy and why the f*** goldie even accepted to press this into 180g thang? damn. (

I like how it sounds. The 90 feeling is for me very intense. I'm feeling being back in this time. The Burial Remix get better with every spin but it could be longer. The End comes too abruptly.

whoa, goldie's 2017 rebuild is actually very good! for the most part, just tightens up the original with a surprising amount of restraint. diane charlamagne's vocals are higher in the mix. R.I.P....

Anyone else getting a KLF vibe? End minute sounds like it's ripped from an old b-side...

The original was a timeless classic, so the 2017 rebuild is a very nice modern refresh. Shows how perfect it was that not much needs to be tweaked. The Burial remix, I think I need to marinate on it for a few months. Some parts of it blow me away with some exceptional detail in the sound design, then the messy percussion in parts throws me off.

Wait for the market seas to settle on this one while all these flippers/sharks are about. 1500 copies is hardly a limited press, these will be floating about for a tenner in a few weeks.

A: The 2017 Rebuild of Goldie's Inner City Life is simply beautiful. A breath of fresh air. It makes you feel hopeful for a brighter tomorrow...
AA: There's so much attention to detail in this track, it's incredible. It's raw, it's abstract, it's a fucking mind trip through the dark and grungy back alleys of Burial's Inner City Life!
