I guess he has lost most of his early fans already. I believe rateyourmusic reviews/ratings could give a hint on popularity/hype. The most popular EP, Kindered had 84 reviews, and almost 7000 ratings. Last years Claustro have 4 reviews and 1100 ratings. I would guess that a new album would build some hype/pressure and a sort of comeback vibe. Untrue was a good album, but the bar isn't really that high. Think about Syro, or everytime BOC returns.  

If I look at last.fm

burial has 1M listeners, Aphex has 2M. Burial is much more listened to then I thought, like you I also figured most fans of Burial that was around Untrue would all have givin up on him now.

Chemz... its cringeworthy tbh

Burial sucks since Rival dealer

      Happy Holidays all
      As the scene's keenest scribe-cum-producer, Blackdown's blog and Keysound label were at the core of the genre’s early sound, placing him in proximity to key players including Burial. Like we mentioned, Burial’s remix of ‘Crackle Blues’ in 2006 was, just like his debut 12”, sorely overlooked at the time, and remains one of his tightest and most effective garagey/woodblock productions.
      On the ’Shock Power Of Love’ EP they check in 15 years later for a 2-step pow wow, passing the peace-pipe over cuts of Detroit-inspired garage and deep-fried, crispy London soul music. Blackdown gives clear nods to his 313 inspiration on both sides, framing his restless subs and garage swing with sampled, house declarations and soaring pads in ‘The Journey VIP’ while nodding to Juan Atkins and Red Planet via Geeneus in a remix of Heatmap’s ‘Arklight.’ Burial is at his signature best on the other two, frothing choral vocals into a scissored 2-step shuffle on ‘Dark Gethsemane’ before rolling out fathoms deep into the iridescent trance leads and scalp-stroking Reese bass licks of ’Space Cadet.’

      It's Christmas. That means one thing. Or maybe not.
      Would rather have had one killer Christmas track than staggered eps of blandness all year.
      What say the WATMM massif?

      Out on Friday. I know, the 'Burial' sound is something everyone either likes or doesn't. Sometimes I think it's nothing more than some crackling effects and tape hiss but probably there is more to it than that.
      Personally, I love the Burial mix on this. The other tracks are also good.
