Sounds of 2008
8. Burial: Etched Headplate

As if Burial's amazing 2007 debut wasn't enough, with 2008's Untrue he refines his sound, finding dignity, serenity even, amid the urban grime.

It's difficult to make out the words, which is intentional. What emerges through the haze is a portrait of a soul grappling with survival.

Deep, soulful, and miles ahead of the competition, it's a stark yet tender portrait.
