Feel like the entirety of the "Big Sister" release should be on here. That one's so gorgeous (especially the last say, 15 minutes) and maybe one of their greatest things ever.
I agree, I say the entirety of "Big Sister" is the greatest thing from that era, when judging a work as a whole. I mean, AHDO is very good and I love OWB, but I think "Big Sister" is great from start to finish (what I meant by considering something as a whole). To me, the best things Underworld has made are Dubnobasswithmyheadman, Second Toughest in the Infants, 'Big Sister', and Beaucoup Fish. Not sure what to pick between Beaucoup Fish and 'Big Sister', but damn is 'Big Sister' brilliant.

I was going by official releases. There may be some tracks that have leaked out in live shows or on radio shows after that, but Holding The Moth is the cut off for me.

Re: Oblivion with a Hundred RiverRuns Off
Okay, this is going to be the nerdiest question I've ever asked on this board, but is it appropriate to include anything from Bungalow With Stairs? You know what, fuck it, I know the answer is no. I know I hadn't heard Tokyo<>London 1 until the 2003 Peel performance but I KNOW IT DOESN'T COUNT $(%&)(#*@

All the RiverRuns are excellent, but add me to the fanwagon for "I'm A Big Sister...", just gorgeous. That 2005-06 era holds a special place in my heart - perfect blending of hard electronic and avant garde classical ambient (inc. "Breaking and Entering")

Re: Oblivion with a Hundred RiverRuns Off
i disagree with both of you. it's not avant-anything, it's pretty damn decent but not a patch on the other two (which i think actually are perfect)

Re: Oblivion with a Hundred RiverRuns Off
The others are clutch, too. You're avant-everything, Dubby!

I think we're all in need of some new, pure Underworld to discuss. Bring on the Olympics

No, i dont think so. And neither the demos for Barking or anything that ended up on Barking. I think theres a period from AHDO to OWB with everything inbetween and the singles associated that defined a sound. I dont think the collaboration stuff on sound tracks for Breaking and Entering or Sunshine should be in there either.
