Re: Drift Ep. 5 Part 4 - Tree And Two Chairs
Personally I really like this one, but I completely understand why some Underworld listeners wouldn't. Simply put, this doesn't sound like Underworld. The Holding the Moth comparison is apt; starts out with some recognizably Underworld business and evolves into something that sounds like generic music people here in the backgrounds at cocktail parties. Fortunately for me I happen to like both of those things, but I'd definitely like it more if it was more Underworldy.

Writing all that out I started to wonder if what we think of as generic is what Underworld thinks is exciting, simply by virtue of how un-Underworld generic music is. I fear Underworld thinks something that sounds like Underworld is generic, when nothing could be further from the truth.
