Overall a satisfying listening, though some tracks are much better than other which are stripped out of melodies, while the best ones are rich in tunes and emotion. Most tracks feels like being played in big open spaces, and they fit well with British city scenarios. " Forgive" is my top track in this release.
13 years after the release I finally dared to listen ... Earlier, intuition told me NO! I wasn't disappointed ... A collection of plastic songs with laptop sound. A shovel of post-techno era. I don't recommend.
BORING ! how can so much good equipment produce something so dull ! Whoever rates this needs to listen to some good electronic music , Kraftwerk , LFO , Derrick May . Jaun Atkins . burial = poop . zomby = poop .
This isn't the powerful emotional ride that "Untrue" turned out to be, but it came out at a time when this sound was still fresh, innovative, and exciting. While "Untrue" is about the mood and atmospherics, I'd argue this album is more about the production. Burial pushed new boundaries in dub with this work, a style he would later perfect.
The 51 minutes of this masterpiece can turn and turn for hours and you will just feel better at every play's. Perfectly produced to ear's heaven, subtle, powerful and yet incredibly emotional are every seconds on this record. Crossing and flirting with every boundary to achieve its own and sure deserved particular style, the Burial style... Get this record, play it, sit down and teleport youself to the South London Boroughs...
