CRITIC REVIEWS

Louder Than War

Antidawn is special. It is unlikely that you will experience anything else quite like this for the rest of the year.

Clash

This is delicate, complex music that demands relistening. It’s certainly frustrating at first, especially if you’re expecting another dubstep masterpiece. But it grows on you given openness and attention.

Beats Per Minute

Antidawn is many things, but most of all, it is the sound of our lives behind concrete walls and glass windows, on dark streets and in dirty sheets. It breathes, forever encased, in darkness and in light.

Loud and Quiet

Burial has explored pure, percussion-free ambience plenty of times before ... but never with such a degree of intricacy or sheer temporal commitment.

NME

Although ‘ANTIDAWN’ isn’t by any means an easy listen or an EP made for casual ears, the level of intricate detail and world-building achieved proves that, more than a decade since his arrival, nobody does immersive electronica quite like Burial.

Pitchfork
Burialโ€™s longest release in years doubles down on his signature sounds and downcast mood. A collaged chorus of voices holds together a windswept expanse of undulating nothingness.

NO NUANCE REVIEW

It’s got some cool ideas, but nothing leads to a lasting impression. But then again I get the vibe that this is not the best project to serve as my introduction to Burial’s music, so that’s on me.

Average ambient album, cool ass album cove Doe

Antidawn is an ambient for emotional witnessing, rather an experience than standard listening. Leaving behind dubstep / future garage, still keeps the atmosphere of the Burial's musical universe. Pity that full EP is not on the level of the opening song.

First listen from this year, yay.

Wow, I don’t even know who’s Burial, but this is special, it’s the type of album that makes you go to a different place just by listening, I can’t lie, it made me feel like I was in heaven, because some of the tracks are some of the weirdest shit I’ve ever listened to, but it’s beautiful.
