With the exception of KoS Barking Mix, you're right, it would probably suit quite an intimate / casual environment. I just tried to put together the most surprising / least likely to happen setlist, because I think that would be something really worth seeing.

Interestingly, no one has suggested the god awful, but annoyingly (live) ubiquitous Two Months Off, that surely to god everyone is bored to tears with by now?

100%. That's my go-to-the-bathroom track. It's been performed more less exactly the same way since its debut. If you've heard it once you've heard it a thousand times. The most overrated of Underworld's anthems.

It's always sounded a bit...oh I don't know..'forced' to me..."Let's write a massive comeback anthem for our return", that sort of thing, where they try a bit too hard to sound like classic Underworld

'One Perfect Sunrise' was actually the last track on their last album before they first split. But yes, it really felt like "let's do a big Halcyon-esque climax to end things". I've always hated it.

eh my only gripe with TMO is that when they do it live they don't do the heavily-layered rhythmic coda which to me is the high point of the tune. I still love the track - when I first heard it, it clearly stood apart from their past anthems. I think of "Dinosaur Adventure 3D" as the forced one.

I'd agree with that assessment of Dinosaur Adventure 3D.

Yes, Dinosaur Adventure 3D always felt like King of Snake II: Not as Good to me.
