SteveR.Oct 18, 2007A strong effort. Underworld being Underworld. Great production and addictive grooves. What's not to like?
MorganH.Jan 6, 2008This is a new kind of Underworld, significantly better than the last new-kind-of-Underworld we saw on A Hundred Days Off. They smash together all of their sounds - combining the gritty dark beats of dubnobass with the bright, poppy synths of Beaucoup Fish and the weird, experimental work of their recent soundtracks and EPs. Is there a little Second Toughest in there as well? Holding The Moth (which attentive followers of UW will know as Globe) harks back to those days. Boy Boy Boy might be my favourite track, although it's hard to pick one; it's a kind of synthesis of previous sounds with something new, and it comes out rocking and thumping and everything you wanted. You were let down, perhaps, by A Hundred Days Off, and the four year gap that followed it. If, like me, you were thrilled to hear Crocodile for the first time, to hear that return to their original thumping beats and glorious harmonies, you're going to love this album.… Expand
JayB.Oct 19, 2007Except for a couple missteps, this album is pure Underworld and is one of the best albums of the year. You will not be disappointed!
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.
