Their loss... Not everyone can appreciate quality music
Fine if people don't like them, shame some people need to be douchebags about it though. The First Note is Silent is hardly representative of UW's sound, not to mention it's a High Contrast track for the most part anyway.

Re: Underworld: "Pop music shite"
Wow, there is some heavy-duty vitriol in that thread. I bet most of them haven't listened to anything newer than NUXX either.

Those haters probably never listened to the brilliant "I'm a Big Sister" or OWB or Ansum...like TheBang said, most of them probably know very little of their music from their releases in between NUXX and The First Note Is Silent.

Re: Underworld: "Pop music shite"
Perhaps I'm looking at it from a different angle since I wasn't around for it, but I never really understood why people saw A Hundred Days Off as a disappointment. On the contrary, I think it's evidence of just how well they fared without Emerson and were able to overcome their association with a quickly-fading "electronica" boom. Stunned that the people in that thread seem to universally consider it a bomb.
Also, I loved this little tidbit:

well yeah, definitely not, but you can't really be too shocked at this directed towards a band that's pretty much always kept a lot of their best stuff off the actual albums

Re: Underworld: "Pop music shite"
Id call the two most recent High Contrast tracks poppy and I don't like either one of them. However their back catalog is obv. amazing otherwise none of us would be here

The longer it moves on, the less interested people will be with the older stuff.

Re: Underworld: "Pop music shite"
those fools are just a bunch of tarts. and they obviously haven't listened to OWB... and as for AHDO - i for one was hugely impressed with that release for the fact that Emerson had departed. there are some amazing tracks on that album.

but what do i know? i'm just an uw fan!

Re: Underworld: "Pop music shite"

people need to wait til the Olympics opening ceremony - its certainly not gonna be a pop-fest trance-a-thon that Tiesto served up

its gonna be a Chas'nDavekneesupmuvvabrownforeverblowinbubbles east end jamboree (i hope)
