Re: Determine Your Favorite Underworld Album - With SCIENCE!

Hey look, I didn't mean to come across like a dick, I'm just genuinely interested in an opinion that surprised me so much. A lot of the hate Ess Gee gets is because it's a short guitar interlude (I...

Re: Determine Your Favorite Underworld Album - With SCIENCE!

The comparison was them being two short guitar interludes. One very repetitive one being given the highest score, and one more varied, melodic one being given the lowest. Just seemed like a bizarre...

Re: Determine Your Favorite Underworld Album - With SCIENCE!

I'd love to understand this.

I'll never get the hate Ess Gee sometimes gets. It's such a pretty little piece, and it's only a couple of minutes long.

Re: Drift Episode 2 "ATOM"

It's a fascinating time to be a music fan, as we're still in this very bizarre mid-ground between quick-turnaround digital-only releases and a lingering desire to release traditional albums, and...

Re: Drift Episode 2 "ATOM"

You could whack Appleshine Continuum on a second disc. Personally I find it too long, but I might consider making a 25 minute edit that I'd really enjoy and then burn that to disc.

I'll probably...

Re: Determine Your Favorite Underworld Album - With SCIENCE!

That's funny, because I find 'Rowla' really derails the album for me. It brings me out of the ambience of the rest of it.

Re: Determine Your Favorite Underworld Album - With SCIENCE!

I dunno, I rate M.E. and Tongue, and not Santiago Cuatro. But I get what you mean: I love stuff like Ess Gee, Good Morning Cockerel and Louisiana. Maybe it's the more acoustic sounds of these that...

Re: Drift Episode 2, ATOM

Fairly extensive sleeve notes (https://underworldlive.com/drift/sleeve-notes/). Mid-way through at the minute, really lovely reading so far.

Revelling in just how staggeringly different mine and dubman's opinions are. Excellent post.

Re: Drift Ep. 2...wishes and predictions

It's not quite the same though: you can get Barbara with Twenty Three Blue on CD very easily, and most people aren't going to spot the difference with a 24/96 - hell, we're talking about buying CDs...

Re: Drift Ep. 2...wishes and predictions

I got into them with NUXX, so it was that, Pearl's Girl and the b-sides which made me a fan. Can't remember whether I bought STITI before or after Beaucoup Fish. Bizarrely, STITI never clicked with...

Re: Drift Ep. 2...wishes and predictions

Yeah, it's a difficult album to compare to their earlier works (particularly the '90s ones), because it feels like a different beast altogether. For me it's effectively their 'ambient' album, based...

Re: Drift Ep. 2...wishes and predictions

As my favourite Underworld album is OWB I can't entirely relate, but I agree that both episodes so far have had such an energy and spark to them that it's hard not to just feel a huge sense of joy...

Re: Drift Ep. 2, Part 5 - Soniamode

This is a lot of fun. From the moment I read "Is this one finished...? No but it's coming out anyway" I was in a good mood. Great stuff.

Re: Drift Ep. 2...wishes and predictions

I'm absolutely, all-for digital-only releases of this kind of stuff. It's what it's all about, it's totally up-to-date, it's the version of Underworld that fits in perfectly with 2019 in a way that a...

Brilliant track. Would love a longer one, but if not then definitely happy with this alone.

Re: Drift Ep. 2, Part 1 - Appleshine

CD singles are pretty close to dead.

CDs still outsell vinyl, cassette and downloads in the UK. It's only streaming that beats them.

Re: Drift Ep. 2...wishes and predictions

The question is whether that album will be something new, or a 'best of' compilation of the EPs.
