CRITIC REVIEWS

90
Drowned in Sound

If future EPs are as solid as this, he can keep that third album under the grill forever.

90
No Ripcord

The grid of his computer screen is less rigid, and consequently, there is less access into the song's core because there are multiple cores, each a little world onto itself, a degree zero, an island.

87
Pitchfork

Never before has his music possessed this much majesty, this much command, this much power

86
Beats Per Minute

It’s as much of a technical, puzzle-piece spider-web as it is an emotionally exhausting workout.

80
FACT Magazine

It’s a kind of clotted and autistic facsimile of dancefloor communion – not quite the elegiac mourning of rave that Burial’s supposedly known for, so much as a deeply alienated re-interpretation of it.

80
The 405

Every bit as atmospheric and idiosyncratic as his previous output, Burial showcases his diversity on Kindred but hones in when needed.

80
Consequence of Sound

Kindred as a whole is easily the most exciting Burial release since Untrue redefined dubstep way back in 2007.
