A TAV Essential Listening Album.

Burial is the debut studio album of dubstep producer Burial. It was released in 2006 on Kode9's Hyperdub records. The album's sound draws on various forms of UK rave music, including 2-step, jungle, and UK garage. It received critical acclaim, with The Wire magazine naming it their album of the year.

Critic Simon Reynolds categorized Burial as a concept albumand also said it "could almost be an audio essay about the London hardcore continuum", as it follows South London flooded New Orleans-style due to global warming. He notes this situation similar to the novel The Drowned World by J.G. Ballard, a science fiction author who is a common reference point in discussions regarding dubstep. …According to Reynolds, the album also regards the "keep-the-faith conservatism" in dubstep which Mark Fisher argued was a requiem or funeral tribute for the culture of rave music, an example being "Gutted", which includes a faltering yet stoic low-key male vocal sample declaring, "me and him, we're from different, ancient tribes ... now we're both almost extinct ... sometimes ... you gotta stick with the ancients ... old school ways. –

"With its skipping beats and oppressive bass pressure, Burial's eponymous debut is a product of the dubstep scene, but it also pays homage to an older musical continuum of dark underground sounds and pirate radio culture which stretches from the nineties through to the present, encompassing jungle, drum ‘n’ bass, speed garage and UK garage. Nevertheless, Burial is most certainly not an album for the dancefloor – the most appropriate listening environment would be in a car driving through the city after dark whilst the rain pounds down and neon lights flicker outside. It's the sound of seventies dub meister King Tubby crying ‘Tears in Rain’ from the soundtrack to Blade Runner. Burial represent a hypermodern updating of the dub experience that genuinely embraces the spooked expanses and emptiness of the dub sound as opposed to just name-checking the genre." -  Resident Advisor
