  • Summary: The popular electronica band, now down to two members (founders Rick Smith and Karl Hyde) after the departure of DJ Darren Emerson, move forward with their first studio recording in three years, highlighted by 9-minute lead single "Two Months Off."

  1. Their best album since Dubnobasswithmyheadman.
  2. 80
    This is a very fine album... even if it's surprisingly business as usual in many respects. [Oct 2002, p.108]
  3. 80
    Kicky enough for late-night drives, sultry enough for backseat prospecting, and versatile enough to sell anything, it may be the most user-friendly record of Underworld's career and a better follow-up to Play than Moby's own. [Oct 2002, p.120]
  4. If you're a fan of the darker energy that the group brought to their earlier releases (like Dubnobasswithmyheadman), you may find this release a little soft in the middle.
  5. 70
    They have settled gracefully into the task of making a consistently glorious racket. [Oct 2002, p. 100]
  6. 60
    The good news is that practically nothing has changed. That's also the bad news. [#10, p.133]
  7. The impression is of a group who have got too good at sounding like themselves. [Oct 2002, p.110]
