KlennF.Mar 23, 2008Listen to in the dark w/headphones or driving at night... it encompasses your brain. Beautiful.
Oct 6, 2010Even though it is classified as dubstep, don't expect any bassy oscillation of what todays dubstep is composed of. This album is a stroke of genius and was and still is a breathe of fresh air.

MrLDec 11, 2007Chris B....if you can do as well as Burial, I suggest you do it.
seeds13Jan 19, 2008This music is weak and lacks substance. It wouldn't even make an impact if it was blasting at someone's "burial". Hell, I've heard better sounds blast out of my a$$. Seriously. The vocals seem to be some kind of sick joke from the world of pop. But, go ahead and vote high since you have little taste in music. I personally am drawn to musicians.… Expand
