Well I'm not going to make any claims regarding the rest of their output, but Born Slippy.nuxx - end of. You will never in a million years get me to accept that that wasn't innovative and groundbreaking at the time of release.

I thank you

Re: Is Underworld innovative?
IS Underworld Innovative

or

ARE Underworld Innovative

i go with the latter...


i can't answer the question, its subjective, what's innovation??

JBO - now they were innovative in signing UW & The Dust Brothers - or we're they just clever? Its more likely right place right time....

and Danny Boyle was innovative in his selection of Born Slippy for his sound track.

Re: Is Underworld innovative?
I dunno, this is kind of a silly question. UW are definitely innovative but they aren't like, ahead of their time or anything. dubnobass was the first electronic album I heard that had clear New Wave influences and actually had like, a singer. The real question is, who has really been that "innovative" since the late 70's? Aphex Twin? The poster child is Radiohead, but they kind of nicked most of their "big" ideas from 70's German rock didn't they? What kind of answer are you looking for?

Haha, I wrestled with that in my mind just after creating the topic. Ultimately, I decided to leave it as is.

Were they the first? Probably not. Did they manage to take dance club type songs and bring them into my car, my house, my headphones in a time when that just wasn't happening? Yes. That's pretty innovative.

@JasonRoth: damn right! Their live show was very innovative. It's not fair to say its not anymore because they well into their career at this point. Artists can't be constantly innovative. Its impossible.
agreed.
i remember first getting dance mix usa vol. 4 (great shit)
then it was the "you've come a long way baby"
then i got the hackers soundtrack
then, i got everything, everything live. first on disc, then on DVD.

nothing was the same after that. i sort of became a music snob until i started playing guitar, which took me away from electronica. but having the knowledge of playing a guitar, taught me what Underworld were doing to be all the more grander.

Underworld is still the only band i know who do what they do, in other words, i've never come across a band blatantly trying to rip Underworld off.
- to me, thats innovation

Re: Is Underworld innovative?
So... much... conjecture...

I'd really appreciate it if the admin that broke my post off would change themselves to the OP. This back-and-forth isn't what I wrote the post about or had even intended on accomplishing.

EDIT: All fixed!
