I personally use the UK Qobuz store. I also have an account with the US store. A UK friend of mine made me an account for the UK store and I took it over and use my own info with it.. Sometimes I was able to get a cheaper price in the UK store versus US store and vice versa. I have also found releases exclusive to a territory on Qobuz that was not available in the UK store, but available in the German one. I'm surprised it hasn't shown up in the US store.

Re: Juanita drop, 27/5
By the way, it would be nice if they remastered and did some work on the Tokyo 2005 show and released it digitally. Perhaps try and tweak the mix/level a little bit on it. Personally, I'm more a fan of the Amsterdam show in 2005.

Also, could UW make Back In The Fears a drop cuz I would love an extended version like they played in the live shows. The Riverrun version is just too short.

Re: Juanita drop, 27/5
It's just a matter of time before it's released in digital format lossless out here in the US. I'll wait, although it's a limited edition release, $57 shipped is pretty steep for only 2 tracks. Qobuz and 7Digital have both Two Months Off and Dark & Long 3 in lossless for purchase. The artwork for the Juanita vinyl is beautiful, I will say. Spotify has it listed, however, only the Everything Everything version of Juanita is available to stream.

Probably not super helpful but it's available for purchase in the Canadian iTunes store (for $9.99, mind you ). And you can't purchase just one it's "album only" which kinda sucks if you already have the live version (for two decades).

I'm sorry, I love UW, but this pricing is absurd. 2 tracks should not be 10 pounds. 5 pounds for Apple lossy is pushing it. I could see lossless/hi-res being 5 pounds, but, still, it's only 2 songs.

And lord forbid, they just post it on their Bandcamp and set the price. I don't know who is figuring out these prices for them, but that is insane.

Yeah I don't understand why they are not using Bandcamp. It seems to fit their ethos much better than being locked in to all these huge corporate stores with lossy quality. Fuck Apple.
I just want to buy FLAC downloads of new Underworld tracks easily for a reasonable price. Is that really too much to ask in 2022?

Re: Juanita drop, 27/5
I loved the Dark Train rework, but this one doesn't really do it for me and I prefer the Everything, Everything version.



The thing I'm most puzzled by is the flattening of the 'huh' in the vocal at the end of the 'when you walk away' section, which had real drive and feeling. In fact the whole vocal treatment seems to have robbed it of its urgency and excitement.



Nice to hear a few new elements in there though.

No kidding! Is this one even higher than the previous 12" drops? I don't know if I can shell out $50+ for this one.
