Format: Audio CD
Where were you? “Dubnobasswithmyheadman” is a classic. Lets get that out of the way. It's 75 minutes of cutting edge electronic music from the early 90's, made at the edge of possibility, and you not only can you dance your ass off to it, its chock full of great songs, intricate and fascinating lyrics and textures, and is the band before they became that lagerlagerband, and it still stands up now as a great record stripped from the decade of release. This exhaustive 5CD box set is not the complete picture, but with two and a half hours of rare mixes and b-sides, and a further two and a half hours of unreleased songs, early versions, and studio jams, this really is one of the best, and most lovingly prepared, reissue packages I have seen.

The two and a half hours of b-sides and mixes, many only on long deleted vinyl, are – if you haven't heard them, essential, classic Underworld, long, fabulous instrumental epics sometimes up to twenty minutes long, huge, epic tunes. Whilst the sequencing sounds like a random compilation and not a cohesive album experience, it's still absolutely required listening.

On the other hand, it is fascinating to hear the songs evolve. The Underworld devout – of which I am undoubtedly one – devoured the numerous CD's, 12”s and compilation releases at the time, and the band were fiercely prolific, with every single backed with a barrage of new material and self-made alternate mixes that often bore no resemblance to the released original. In the depths of this exhaustive, 5CD, 6 and a half hour long release, you'll find some glaring omissions, and some stunning revelations.

The fourth CD contains early versions of the album sessions, and there are some songs on here - “Concord”, “Birdstar”, “Organs” - equal of anything on the main record. Yes.

This is a review of the remastered version. Not the CD or CD package, I am specifically listening to 24/96 FLAC files downloaded from Qubuz as Amazon only offer MP3 downloads at the moment. If you like this album and enjoy listening to high quality music (high quality in a technical sense) in a suitable environment then this would be a very good choice. I have the original CD and listened to apple lossless files generated from that CD and can say without hesitation there is a distinct sound improvement. The thing I love about underworld, especially on this album is the way they layer different sounds on top of each other to create an atmospheric sound-scape. The improved mastering and sound quality provided by this release means each of these layers is more clearly defined without loosing anything from the original release. Re-masters tend to fall into three categories; 1. whats the difference?, 2. remixed rather than remastered and 3. genuinely improved by remastering. This version falls well and truly into the third of these categories.

I have a few of underworld's early albums, and regularly return to those. I re-discovered them on the Scribble tour, but then they faded out of my listening for a while until Dubnobass inspired a purchase. Like their other albums it has a consistent style, different to the last. I describe the flavour of this album as acid dipped deep techno. There are some industrial sounds, and several trackys are trancy but to describe it as tech trance doesn;t seem right. There's one track that must be reasonably old or maybe got some airtime because I was surprised to find I recognised it. That's on the second disc and like most of the second disc, it's a club banger. Disc 1 is deep and makes a great driving record if you can control the urge to have it and drive safely. that's hard for me when Sky scraper comes on because it has some lovely acid sounds that ripple up my back and want to take control of my arms. Get that on some good speakers and it's be a great listen both lying down in the dark, or cavorting on an open dancefloor or field.

This boxed set encapsulates just what the nascent rave/dance scene was all about - a blueprint for the future that incredibly managed to doff a reverential cap to the past yet was way ahead of it's time simultaneously.
The original is a timeless classic, the remix is incredible in terms of depth and space in the music, and the out takes would have been worthy of release in their own right - the breadth of ambition and understanding of the vibe of dance culture are ever-present.
Anyone who loved/loves the scene just has to own this essential collection, which is also beautifully and thoughtfully put together.
Buy it, close the curtains, select any disk, pour yourself a drink, (or whatever), and kick back and let the goods times in.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I've never actually owned this record before, despite the fact that it is widely regarded as one of the classic electronic music LPs. When it first came out I was too busy digging Detroit techno to pay it much attention; always meaning to get around to hearing it later on. This new deluxe edition presents the ideal opportunity for casual fans like me to get hold of an authorititative version. Best of all, the bonus disc contains "Dark & Long (Dark Train)" - the "other" Underworld track on the soundtrack of Trainspotting [DVD] [1996] (but the one which does NOT appear on the soundtrack album) which was the first track that really made me sit up and take notice of Underworld (along with "Born Slippy" which sadly does not feature). Quite simply the Dark Train mix is a techno masterpiece which for me really makes this 2CD edition worth having.

Whilst the 2CD is presented in the now familiar Universal Music deluxe CD packaging format, surprisingly it does not come with a lot extra in the way of sleevenotes - a mere four pages (written by Jon Savage though) and, no (zero) pictures - just an extension of the record's distinctive black and white artwork.

"Dubnobasswithmyheadman" is a case of "what's not to like" and it's not hard to see why this is such a universally well-loved record. It's a pure techno music, but it's also unashamedly a pop album - a trick that very few, other than Kraftwerk, have truly managed to pull off.
