5.0 out of 5 stars Concrete music, 20 Nov. 2007
This review is from: Burial (Audio CD)
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.
