I first heard this on YouTube and I have to say it was one of the most incredible pieces of relaxing music I have heard. You have to be in the right state to really appreciate the quality of both of these songs, particularly Paradise Circus. Yes, it's expensive now and I paid a small fortune for my AP copy but the producers didn't ask people to pay that much. If it had been a rubbish tune it would probably go for not that much. The fact it is expensive goes to the quality of the tunes.

I cannot understand such releases anymore, this all seems to be a matrix error.

Finally got round to getting the official version only to find the two annoying screeches in Four Walls are still there! I had heard they were anti copyright sirens! Pleased I didn’t spend £££ on the vinyl. I can’t actually believe they allowed this to be released. The sound is to relaxation what dropping a toaster in would be to a nice bath.

Absolute masterpiece, every time I listen to it it gets better and better. Probably the most expensive record I have ever bought but after long deliberation I thought it was worth it... and I think it is. Still a shame though that this one wasn't pressed in bigger quantities so more people could enjoy it.

I am very sad to report this pressing sounds really bad..
I'm not very picky but if had to compare the sound I would have to say the re press of Ok Computer by Radiohead sound just as bad....
I'm still happy to own a copy but just wanted to let people know.

I really sad that i missed to buy this Record when it was released.
After the incredible high prices here i'm really thinking about producing an Mastercut/Dubplate out of the Digital Release for private purpose only and just for my collection . That would be by far more limited and i would own #1 of 1 and would probably sound far better;)

Massive Attack and Burial...i hope they collaborate again because this EP is an unbelievable cerebral masterpiece.

as far as the highly desired vinyl...until this gets a FIXED reissue, just buy the WAV version available from Massive Attack's store. sounds fantastic!

i was fortunate to receive a vinyl rip WAV...horrible distortion beyond the expected Burial trademark sound. Hope's vocals clearly show the pressing to be unacceptable. i then bought the official WAV from Massive Attack. perfect sound! there's no way i would pay the $100-500+ asking price for the vinyl. if you want the best sounding copy of this EP spend $5 here: http://store.massiveattack.com/view-all/massive-attack-v-burial-digital.html

now, go spend some time in another world!
