24 okt 2007, 17:23 av smaptewhat with all of the discussion and speculation about the new album over on darktrain.org i realized that i wanted to get my head around exactly how i would rank my preferences among underworld's albums. of course, in order to accept this ranking you'd have to accept the riverrun releases as "albums." which i do. so here it is:
Second Toughest in the Infants
Lovely Broken Thing
Oblivion With Bells
Pizza for Eggs
I'm a Big Sister, and I'm a Girl, and I'm a Princess, and This Is My Horse
A Hundred Days Off
i'm still waffling over the last two. AHDO might rank higher than big sister. tough call.
also, the new album definitely has the fan base split down the middle. seems like few people love the whole thing through and through, start to finish. which splits us into "first-halfers" and "second-halfers." me, i'm a first halfer. i wouldn't change a single note from Crocodile through Glam Bucket. …
21 okt 2007, 18:02 av star-samuraiAlright. So the day after I got the album, I went to the hospital and stayed there for 3 days and 2 nights. Just came home on Friday. So I've been listening to Oblivion With Bells like heck. And yesterday my dad wanted to play it on the stereo. So it sounded fantastic. My dad kept saying Karl is a jerk, which I found amusing. He doesn't like Karl's voice. I've always liked it. Haha but he listened to nearly all of the songs (he skipped "Glam Bucket" since it sounded too boring for him). It was awesome listening to all of the songs on stereo really really blasting loud rather than my earbuds of my iPod nano.
Anywayysss. Warning I may not make sense at times and I might use random poetry to fully convey what I'm thinking.
I've listened to Crocodile ever since the streaming of the track on Pitchfork. I still like it now, but for now I'm kinda not listening to it as much. I love the beginning and the vocals and yeah. Everything. I like how the end fades into Beautiful Burnout and the interesting instruments being used. …

4 okt 2007, 14:09 av ChaosopherIRLUnderworld have returned to tickle our senses with their latest album, Oblivion With Bells.
Whilst many argue the band is just not what it used to be since the departure of Emmerson, I personally am thrilled with this latest musical explosion.
From the majestic sounds of Beautiful Burnout, Crocodile with it's razorsharp insightfulness, to the bold Boy, Boy, Boy, this is definitely an album not to be missed.

Ian Brown's “Illegal Attacks” is a collection of overtly-political lyrics set to stereotypically ominous strings. Heathen Chemistry might've sounded like this if Liam had been watching Newsnight.
Prescilla by Bat for Lashes is a simple piano ballad at heart, but the production is richer than that. There's an irregular, slow drumbeat, a clapping rhythm—slightly reminiscent of Bad Education—and an assortment of other instruments and noises that give the impression that she's playing in an attic, accompanied by a waggonful of smiling hippies; but it's the warmth in her voice and in the accompaniment that propels the song, not the novelty of a weird instrument or two.
Wolves At Night sounds dated, to the tune of about five years—not in a big way, but there are a few subtly reminiscent ingredients. For example, the rock clamour of the intro quietens abruptly as the first verse starts. …
