This review is from: Untrue (Audio CD)
Never heard anything quite like this. It's haunting and magnificent, taking me on a journey round the streets of London I grew up in.
A muffled clatter of shutters, hissing neon lights, snatches of conversation and music drifting down from open windows. Late night buses. The last tube... And it's packed with emotion, the soundtrack to loners walking the streets, couples parting, doorway confrontations and confessions. Lush fragments of tunes overlaying irresistable beats.
Perhaps this is the album DJ Shadow should have made instead of the Outsider to keep fans of Endtroducing on side. But he didn't. It was left to Burial, unknown genius, to create this peerless masterpiece.

Possibly laying it on a bit too thick. It is a good album though. Unlike other dub-step, lo-fi blah blah. It's not cheesey music to break the speakers in your granddads Vauxhall nova. I do like the first album, eps. the one with the Ghostdog samples in.

Thanks! 18 months on, still playing it to death. Etched Headplate the most listened-to track on my ipod.
