There are good reviews for both Street Halo and Kindred as individual E.P.s and I would recommend consulting these. But to summarise, Street Halo was very welcome in 2011 as it was the first proper output from Burial since his highly acclaimed 2nd album Untrue. Soft synthy hooks complimented the Burial sound, which has become a benchmark in production. Kindred is the more genre breaking - a heavier set of delightfully muffled dance tracks which add some doom to the usual gloom, illustrating why Burial is still a good few miles ahead of his peers.

They do not create a cohesive album when put together; this is a compilation for those who want hard copies of both, as they were never available on CD and had only limited pressings on vinyl. I would definitely recommend the content found here, to existing fans and new listeners alike. But its really a question personal prefence as to whether this format is chosen over downloading one or both of the E.P.s individually.

Picks: 'Stolen Dog' from Street Halo; 'Ashtray Wasp' from Kindred.

This has to be my favourite CD of the year so far. It is quite beautiful from start to finish; atmospheric and stimulating in equal parts. I cannot wait for the next full length CD from Burial, a true genius of this genre and still at the forefront in his soundscapes which set him apart from the more clichéd offerings from the dub-step scene

Burial is my one of my current favourite newly-discovered artists at the moment. As a previous reviewer noted, these two EPs don't especially fit together played one after another, but I'm just happy to have been able to buy them in CD format. I've long been a fan of floaty/feminine vocals combined with tough/moody basslines and accompanying music/sounds and Burial doesn't disappoint with that. There are no tracks that I dislike. I'm not doing a track by track review, others have done that and I've not got time. Overall Burial is dark, yet sometimes also strangely happy, moody, mesmeric, bassy. Takes you to another world. This guy creates true compositions that the word "track" although technically correct just doesn't do justice to. Buy it!

I had not heard of Burial before I listened to the CD extracts following an Amazon recommendation (based on my other many and varied musical purchases). It is a quite superb CD and has a rather unique ambient feel at times interspersed with strong hypnotic rhythms and soulful lyrical input where the voice tends to be used rather more like an additional instrument. After buying this I now own all four CDs currently available.

Now all in one sweet piece! The flow is like a regular full-length and it's awesome to feel like I have a "new" Burial CD in my collection. As for the tunes... it's Burial! Always amazing!!

An instant classic of electronic music, and some of the most moving soundscapes I've ever heard 21 Mar 2013
By Christopher Culver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After releasing two highly acclaimed LPs, 2006's self-titled debut and 2007's Untrue, the reclusive dubstep artist Burial disappeared for a while. I was foolish to think that he had just run out of space to evolve within the style he had developed (a common problem in electronia), because Burial eventually came back with some bold and uncompromising EPs that are instant classics of electronic music.

This limited edition import CD contains two of these EPs. STREET HALO was in 2011 and consists of the tracks "Street Halo", "NYC" and "Stolen Dog". KINDRED came out in 2012 and features the three tracks "Kindred", "Loner" and "Ashtray Wasp".

All the elements of Burial's early work are preserved here: two-step beats erratically programmed to create schizoid rhythms, and vocal samples from R&B artists that are utterly divorced from their original contexts by pitchbending and looping, acting almost as instrumental sonorities.

STREET HALO is mostly in keeping with Burial's earlier work, enjoyable but nothing relevatory. KINDRED, however, is a whole new world. Here the construction of the tracks is much more wide-ranging with unexpected (though, in retrospective, quite organic) shifts into totally different soundscapes. At certain moments, the dubstep foundation of the tracks is often downplayed to such a degree that the music becomes ambient in a way much like Seefeel in the 1990s. The vocal samples are treated with a new level of skill -- it's curious indeed that the throwaway pop of yesterday can be transformed into heartbreaking beauty, but that's what Burial does on the latter EP of this disc.

Anyone interested in electronic music should hear this, and I'd even call KINDRED a good introduction to Burial.

more genius 25 Mar 2014

I'm not complaining that he hasn't made an album in years, because his EPs are so creative and have so many sections and styles and moods on them that it seems like an album squeezed into a shorter period of time. Still the best dubstep guy out there (and for god's sake ignore American dubstep, only the Brits do it right).
