Burial is a UK Garage cum Dubstep music, signed to Hyperdub record label, where the record label saw two top class critically album released one after the another. First was his self – titled album – Burial and next – Untrue.

Self – Titled was the precursor for Untrue album. Elements of 2 step, UK Garage, Ambient and Dubstep used in self-titled were retained in Untrue, but obviously were experimented, juxtaposed with complimentary vocals, airy cum atmospheric vibes and burial styled drums, which gave a distinct and peculiar sound to Untrue.

The album has a lot of replaybility. One might after listening to it, get the vibes of R&B music. Highly Recommended!

Burials best album , the atmospherics are more advanced and in another league to his previous releases , why the critics rave about them i have no idea , this is easily his more engaging work , this is an album that connects to your soul , This album is one of the best atmospheric albums of all time, a masterpiece that invokes the mind on journeys of emotional extremes

Burial manages to keep hold of your attention through the whole album even though there is no real climax. After you're done listening you will find yourself contemplating life and questioning your life decisions. The wide range of emotions going through your mind while listening this album are both fascinating and confronting.

The artwork is great as well, really adding to the dark, mysterious vibe of the album.
In my opinion the only downside is that the 2x12" does not include some of the shorter compositions as "Untitled", "Ghost Hardware", "In McDonalds" and "Dog Shelter" which are included on the CD.

Edit: Dang, forgot to mention there is a 2016 Reprint available which include the "missing" tracks.

If there was a pirate radio station broadcasting from a haunted submarine, this is what it would sound like.

I heart Burial.

such a raw record

I just would like to know why the hell it was decided (Hyperdub? Domino?) not to print some "necessary" tunes on vinyl (I'm talking about the "short pieces" In McDonalds & Dog Shelter) since there's enough physical space available on wax (eg. the end of sides A & B). I mean, look at it!
I can partially understand the choice to leave apart Ghost Hardware for a separate dj-friendly release etc, but seriously, this puzzled me.
Hope someone out there will realize it, go behind and make availabe on vinyl those short pieces and some other lost tunes like Fostercare!
I can't content myself with mp3, and sorry if it sounds as a vent of frustration rather than a review. This album is fundamental.

Buying burial on vinyl seems counter-intuitive to me... I mean he made the whole thing in a program similar to Audacity I believe, with shitty 160kbps samples on a broken laptop! (this could have been his first album but pretty sure it's everything of his).

I'm not saying the sound quality put into the album is an issue, it's part of what gives it it's magic. But I can't see how buying the record is really going to bring out the magic of the album further than a 320 mp3??

i wish i could get this album. the track starts and you immediately think, yes that can build up to something awesome. but it doesn't build up. it stays there. it somehow manages not to get annoying though. maybe that's an achievement.

I've been meaning to write this review for ages. There's something about Burial's music that really hits the spot emotionally for me and especially this album as the whole thing just fitted exactly in to what was going on in my life at the time when it was released. From the opening of Archangel with it's beautiful vocal cut ups and mournful strings through the next couple of tracks which sound like pure break up tinged bitterness. This album definitely helped me through that time as alongside the tracks which speak about the harder things in relationships there are also rays of sun in the form of the ambient pieces like In Mcdonalds, Dog Shelter and UK. There's something neither awake nor asleep about those tunes, definitely captures the feeling of staying awake for over 24 hours after going out raving. Falling asleep in the back garden with tunes playing after a free party or taking absolutely ages to do a simple task like getting some shopping in as you keep forgetting what you're in there for. Brilliantly emotive stuff that uses all of it's samples and musical elements perfectly.
