Product Description

This first album on Kode9 s deeply-respected Hyperdub label comes from the mysterious Burial, who carves out a sound which sends the dormant slinky syncopations of UK garage, via radio interference, into a padded cell of cushioned, muffled bass, passing through clouds of Pole s dense crackle dub en route. 'Burial' - the album - explores a tangential, parallel dimension of the growing dubstep ouevre, using sounds set in a near-future South London submerged underwater. You can never tell if the crackle is the burning static off pirate radio transmissions, or the tropical downpour of the city outside, taking its loud quiet aesthetic neither from the latest digital glitch software nor a mere nostalgia for vinyl s intrinsic physicality. In their sometimes suffocating melancholy, most of these tracks seem to yearn for drowned lovers, as haunted echoed voices breeze in and out, on roads to and from other times. The smouldering desire of Distant Lights is cooled only by the percussive ice sharp slicing of blades and jets of hot air blowing from the bass. Listen also for a fleeting appearance from Hyperdub s resident vocalist, The Spaceape, unravelling his cryptobiography. 'Burial' is a renegade signal from other frequencies, a tidal wave of seductive low-impact noise submerging all but the crispest syncopations, and is well on course to be universally welcomed as the standard-bearer for creative vision built upon the grime and dubstep blueprint.

This is not a genre defining album. If you want one of those try the excellent Dubstep Allstars albums. This album implodes the genre, taking all the elements and piling them up till they crush themselves and create something beyond, something unique, something beautiful.

Swathed in crackle and reverb, the soundsystem sensabilities sweep you up and wrap you till you are suffocated under a welter of half speed beats, cavernous bass and snatches of lost vocals. Burial has created as moving an album as you'll ever hear.

Okay I'll be honest with everyone - I knew nothing about Burial before he was nominated for the Mercury Music prize (With follow up to this, Untrue). Even then all I knew was that he was a dark dubstep producer.

I now think he was robbed. In fact, had the Arctic Monkeys not been in the running in '06, I would say he should have won then. At the very least this album should have been nominated.

I'll keep it simple. The album is an absolute joy. Better than 'Untrue' in my opinion. Emotive, ambient and abit clever. I would highly recommend this to any music fan, whether they normally like production based music or not.

Lessons learnt - 1) Mercury Music Prize is good for Something, 2) This album is top notch!

Future Dub

With the dance music explosion of the 1990s a fading distant memory, there's a kind of hysterical desperation around to find "urban" music with some musical intelligence and broader appeal. Hence the hype - or relief - that has greeted this album coming out of a south London "dubstep" scene. After a few plays it does really suck you in, especially the latter half - by track 5 the (mostly instrumental) album starts to come alive, immersing you, becoming more rhythmically insistent yet more abstract with broken beats, glitchy samples, scratches, white noise etc. It gets better & better. The final track 12 "Pirates" is the most hallucinogenic dub I've heard since the heyday of Perry & Pablo. Despite various doubts & reservations, I've now had Burial on virtual repeat play for weeks. Believe the hype!

One can only state the emotions and sensibilities the music provokes. I do not want to coin Burial as a messiah, a voice of a generation, recluse, genius etc. I do not know the man, and I am not a radio dj trying to champion the album. However, I think Burial has made a special album that listens like a soundscape rather than a multitrack production. He is an original, which explains the endless accolades. I am, sure he is faithful to the dubstep generation, but this album, and his debut, doesn't actually sound like dubstep. The clicking gliche-like beats are obscure and unconventional, the convention being slow pounding dub. The use of sped up and mangled r&b vocals hook the listener, the melodies are dreamy, and the ambient pad sounds remind one of early Aphex and Eno. The longevity of this album will be owed to the fact that Burial has carved his own niche of sound production. His music displays his own run at creativity. Thoroughly recommended to the discerning music listener.

Demonstrates just how far the dubstep scene has become a mature and sophisticated genre. Full of longing, warning, wisdom and beauty amongst the tower blocks. Sounds like burningspear/pablo/tubby after they took a 5000 year journey into the future and came back genetically advanced beyond our wildest dreams.

Normally I'd be the first to big up another dark, minimalist dub step offering brimming with new angles and ideas to move the scene on this. But I have to say people this ain't it. After listening intensely on my system ,and with my cans on many many times this album continues to underwhelm, and as for playing any of these out there's not much going on. This fails to live up to any of the hype. But then how could it not when as somebody else has mentioned you've got middle brow music journos proclaiming it as a classic of 'Blue Lines' proportions.
Don't be fooled, this is not even an album as such. It's a collection of tracks from 2001-2006 and it shows. The quality varies wildly. To my ears there are only a couple of stand out tracks warranting instant forwards (!), namely the urgent broken dub of 'Southern Comfort', 'U Hurt Me' and the mesmiring and haunting 'Gutted' and my fave 'Broken Home'. But on the other side these are outnumbered by tracks like 'Spaceape featuring Spaceape that sounds a bad demo from Benjamin Zephaniah's 'Naked' album!

If you're hunting for a dubstep album on Amazon then you're probably new to this sound and there's nothing wrong with that, but do yourself a favour and try Burial's second album 'Untrue', Pinch's 'Underwater Dancehall' and of course Skream's mighty album 'Skream' (THAT is the 'Blue lines for the genre) or my fave Benga's 'New Step'. All will take you somewhere new and exciting. Compilation wise, don't sleep on the 'Dub Plate Drama 2'or Soul Jazz's' Box of Dub' albums if you're new to the scene, or you could dive straight into the Dubstep Allstars compilations if you're head strong;-)

Hope this honest review is useful. Enjoy.

What beauty lies encased in here to surprise the sensitive ear!! This speaks of the urban night, of the silent moment of reflection that takes on you in the midst of the dullest moment of the day...These sounds have been soaked in the sodium glare of our cities, the noises of the night, the fears that stalk you in bed, awake, drunk maybe, and lucid, the flyovers, the distant lights that make you want to escape, the dreams...this music ellicits something from you that is hard to grasp and explain inwords as it will be different for each one of us, but which lies there, a byproduct of our lifestyle.

To me, this departs from a point beyond where FSOL could not go any furhther, mananging to infuse the mix of isolationist ambient and dubstep with a sadness and a capacity for evocation that you can rarely find anywhere else.

Definitely one of the must-haves of the decade!!
I am still specially haunted by one of the tracks, "In McDonalds"...short but so loaded with emotions...
