perhaps not so innovative, given Burial's stylistic parameters, these tracks are more like a frolic, made of fragments who are like distant relatives, getting nowhere really, but still being enjoyable in their atmospheric anticipation. This is more so in the case of Nightmarket, which fits what I like to think of as lo-fi trance, as anticipated in a superb track like ashtray wasp, although with a beatless and more orchestral approach in this case. aelena
Oh man, I slept on all these EPs, waiting for a studio album and then this comp comes and shows me just what I have been missing all these years. DAMN THERE'S SOME ABSOLUTE BURIAL GOLD ALL OVER THESE TWO CDS Was Ist Das?
Simply stunning. Stops me in my tracks each time I listen. Reminds me of all the best 90's electronic albums but definitely sounds fresh and unique. Plus, I just played it at 33 rpm by mistake and it brought a whole new vibe to the music. Brilliant Nick Weetch
