Is it me or do the boys look dressed for their own funeral? I hope this isn't symbolic for things happening with 'owb' ad/marketing campaign (or lack of it, as it were).

The niche market plan better work, or they'll have to go back to making sounds for automobile ads.

Book of Jam?

57:21? It's their shortest album yet. I'm hoping the quality will make up for it.

I must say, though, I was kind of hoping for a 24-minute-long, dark, experimental, ambient piece. With some spoken word stuff here or there, just for good measure.

This week's SF version of the Onion has a write-up for the shows on Fri and Sat and the above linked image was used. I found it a bit odd.

Amazon.com has OWB listed for pre-order...both cd only and w/DVD versions. And a review/description of sorts

Quote:
After a five-year hiatus, Underworld return with an album that draws from across their past. With a mix of aggression and sunshine, they calculate syncopated, ricocheted beats against cleanly delineated textures and circumscribed melodies that have the cool of the 1980s New Romantic movement from which they originally sprang as Freur. Kraftwerk is in the DNA of their sound, but they've moved well past that, incorporating elements of hip-hop and industrial music into the mix. I wonder if Underworld's later mix of poetic spoken-word songs affected Brian Eno's recent work with poetry and music, because the influence seems to have boomeranged back in the vocal cadences of tracks such as "Ring Road." Like some of Eno's work, Karl Hyde's frequently treated, monotone talk-singing vocals could have been time-shifted from a beat-poetry reading of the early '60s. The only thing missing is the bongos. When his voice is processed, it merges as part of the sound field, but when his voice is relatively unaltered, as on "Good Morning Cockerel," it just becomes tedious. The best tracks on Oblivion with Bells are also the most ambitious. "Crocodile" has some lovely, almost Gregorian harmonies, while "Beautiful Burnout" is an epic journey with broad synthesizer chords sweeping by like headlights before segueing into a joyfully ritualistic electro-percussion tribal workout. But after that pair of opening tracks, you have to wait until the very last piece, a long, trancey bit of psychedelic drift called "The Best Mamgu Ever," to hear something more than unformed melodies and unstrung ideas. Underworld can reach higher ground. --John Diliberto

Not that it should necessarily matter, but this guy is about 70 years old, so I take his opinion with a certain degree of skepticism.

Re: oblivion with bells pricelist/online availability
Thanks for these! Nice to know and i can feel the buzz. But, as for the Japanese single of "crocodile" $16 for what's likely a 2-song CD (edit and OH remix), errr...i'll just wait for the full album.
