Re: Underworld: "Pop music shite"
How is it that there's no mention of Barking on that thread? If there's anything to polarize fans/former fans with that "THEY'VE CHANGED SO MUCH" shit its Barking. Whatever.

Heck, so some people don't like a band that matures as their listeners mature.

Re: Underworld: "Pop music shite"
I was kind of disappointed with AHDO at first; gave it many listens, but then a few years later I listened to it some more and was hit with a new found appreciation for it after a couple of listens. It is underrated. The days that they were a trio were amazing, but when it has mostly been about Rick and Karl has also been amazing, too. There is some amazing music that probably wouldn't be there if Emerson stayed. The fourth UW album would have probably been more heavy dance music, which is cool, but we might not have gotten tracks/music like Sola Sistim, Ballet Lane, Food A Ready, Ansum, Back in the Fears, I'm a Big Sister, Best Mamgu Ever, Good Morning Cockerel, Simple Peal, and much more. And to me, those tracks and I'm a Big Sister is right up there with the great stuff from Emerson-era UW.

Re: Underworld: "Pop music shite"
I don't see the criticism that dramatically. Compared to musique concrete or virtually unknown Death Metal Folk Fusion bands, Underworld are 'pop music'. The 'shite' part is simply an opinion - and everybody's entitled to one of those, even if it's wrong.

Nicely put.

Of course everyone is enclined to their own opinion, but that mentioned thread is just not necessary. Really.

There are other bands, like Apollo 440.

Re: Underworld: "Pop music shite"
There was the same sort of nonsense spouted on the Guardian thread announcing UW as the musical directors for the Olympics.

Some eejit banging on about them never having progressed beyond 90s "four on the floor".

They hear two UW all their lives and think they know it all. Sheesh.
