Under The RadarThe band has been making good, emotive electronic music since 1992, and Oblivion is no exception. [Fall 2007, p.84]
Unfortunately, though, while they sound brighter and more alive than they have in a while, their default mode still leans a little too heavily on Hyde's increasingly silly beat poetry and the kind of unashamedly booming drums that haven't sounded exciting since, well, 1997.

ZimaF.Nov 1, 2007much better then the last album. on the way to the greatness of classics.
RadeD.Nov 7, 2007Probably the most underrated albums this year. Not masterpiece, but definitely not a disappointment.
BitBurnOct 17, 2007As excited as I was getting my hands on this new album I must say though I was a little bit disappointed when I first heard the whole thing. It
JamesJ.Dec 3, 2007It's sad but underworld has fallen off. I almost wish I didn't even give it a listen but it still can't diminish their past It's sad but underworld has fallen off. I almost wish I didn't even give it a listen but it still can't diminish their past brilliant works.… Expand
