Nothing quite captures the feeling that Burial creates with his melancholic entrancing tunes. A sense of deep darkness but always a light in the distance we are making our way towards. I love to imagine a film that would use all of his 2 side singles as the score. IF I was filthy rich I'd spend a billion for those rights. Put it to something like "Dark Days" but not a documentary.

Burial was my solace during some of the darkest years of my life. It's hard to revisit his music sometimes because of the emotions I've attached to it, but I'm not sure any other artist deserves as much credit in my own personal narrative for the influence they had on me.

Thank you, William, if you're reading this. It's cliché, but I don't know where I'd be without you.

Can certainly see a new LP coming out in the near future, his work rate has increased a lot over the past few months! Let's keep our fingers crossed 🤞

My hero. Greatest of all time. Heard it was an alias of Elton John.

Burial for me is a great artist from his 2005-2012 era. Now he is creating some way different stuffs which i don't seem to like much. Nevertheless, honorable mentions are: Burial (2006), Untrue (2007), South London Boroughs (2005), Ghost Hardware, Kindred, Four Walls/Paradise Circus.
