From wenny
Dark, atmospheric genius. Still feels so mysterious after countless listens, with more and more layers being uncovered upon returns to the project. Especially recommend listening to at the early hours of the morning.

There is something really deep about this album, It is melacholic, atmospheric, kind of take you to another world. Something like a futuristic city.

Perfectly encapsulates the feeling of walking the city streets at night hearing the party happen right across from you in some underground nightclub... the beauty of loneliness

Good ass electronic music. “Dubstep”? As long as Public Enemy and Outkast are both “hip hop”, this is just “electronic music”. You can more easily praise an album that introduced a new style within a genre (can’t even call this a subgenre really, just a mix of trip hop and ambient) if that style is categorized as if it’s a genre. “Outkast and Dr. Dre really changed hip hop” sounds a lot less of a big deal than “Burial really defined the sound of dubstep”. The labels we give to music as “genres” often just serve the biases of the majority. Not that there is a problem with categorizing music, but you have to do it well.

I love the sample from "Lost Carol" on "Endorphin".

Mi ricorda la jungle di vent'anni fa ma non lo è: questa è più ipnotica, più da trance, più cupa anche. La prima "canzone" mi prende, per circa 10/15 minuti il disco mi piace, dopo cinquanta minuti è un po' pesante.

From JulianR
After having explored some of his later EP work (which I enjoyed a lot), it has gotten a little better. It still feels bland in a lot of places, but I ave found a couple tracks that are fairly enjoyable. But it still feels like nearly the exact same beat is used for essentially every song on the album, and the tracks still dont feel like they progress much throughout their run time, unlike his later long form releases. I am enjoying the ambient tracks more right now. However it is growing on me, and we will see if that trend continues

I would say that I generally appreciate electronic music, but after repeat listens I don't quote understand the hype behind this album. I haven't really found anything that grabs my attention. I have found that it is great music to not pay attention to. Now, I know I'm missing out on something, and will listen a few more times. This has just been my experience so far

Also I'm very confused why people are calling it dubstep. I'm not very familiar with the genre at all but it has a lot more "wub-wub" and, like, bad bass drops, at least in my mind. This sounds more like regular idm, just with vocal samples.

From Strangel
This was my first exposure to Burial's music. After seeing it mentioned so often in the year after its release as being a defining album in electronic/dubstep music. I listened to it distantly at first, in the background, as I carried on with other household stuff. My first impression was a bit 'meh', I wasn't a big fan of R&B vocals and it seemed to be choc full of it. And the electronic beats were so subtle that they didn't have much of an impact on me. But I persevered, knowing that you must give good music time to seep in, and surely all those experts weren't wrong. Of course it was the headphones that took me there eventually. The vocals were, in fact, used ingeniously, taking snippets of cut samples that melded into the layers of electronica perfectly. And those subtle beats were actually like a painter's brush strokes that required close observance to appreciate the art. I never looked back after this and much of his best work appears on EPs which makes it hard to know where to place them in the scheme of GOAT lists. But Untrue is a pure album that has no fillers and it thoroughly deserves to be recognized as one of the GOAT albums.

ALBUM HIGHLIGHT: Each song has it's own argument for being the highlight of the album but I think Archangel best encapsulates the feel of Untrue .

At first I had thought it was a generic album, but upon multiple listens to the album, it turned out that it was just a slow burner.

Favorite Track: Archangel
