a good blend of hip hop, trip hop and mellow sounds with a loud of DJ Shadow weird samples, a must for any DJ Shadow or trip hop fan.

Got this album in 2004 having heard the Be There single with Ian Brown who i was a huge fan of. On first listen i realised i had never heard anything like it before, The Orb been as close as a comparison as i could think of. The album doesn't let the listener relax, it has a strange pull to it that is very gratifying and just lets you listen to the music and enjoy whatever else your doing. It gets played on rare occasions now as to not wear out the great memories and images the tracks invoke to me of the years when this cd was a regular on my cd player. I found it weird on my very first listen as a naive student 10 years ago, i now listen to it and wonder how some people my age now have never heard of U.N.K.L.E, Dj Shadow or James Lavelle, their loss as far as i can see. Standout tracks for me are Bloodstain, Lonely Soul, The Knock (Drums of Death Pt 2), Unreal (Instrumental of Be There) and Rabbit In Your Headlights but all tracks contribute to the album immensely and disagree with some that say some tracks are filler, the album as an album is grand as it is, and wouldnt benefit much if some tracks were removed. This album led me to Entroducing by DJ Shadow which is a masterpiece aswell and maybe slightly better in some instances. If in any doubt about buying this album all i can say as is that you should give it a few listens first and dont judge it on first listen, some may find it great first listen and some may feel indifferent but im sure after 3-4 listens you will come to cherish the album and its musical journey.

Trip Hop pioneer D.J Shadow and Breaks veteran/ Mo Wax Boss James Lavelle join forces to create a musical master piece, an album (in my opinion) which is unrivalled in both beauty and production.
To try to categorise this album would be wrong, this album simply defies this process. The attention to detail and the expert production values shines throughout, from the quirky sci-fi samples to the awesome scratching of Shadow himself. This album was released to critical acclaim, with the album making the top 20 albums of the year in many publications including Mixmag and Spin.
Simply put this is one of the greatest albums ever to come into fruition - genre defying, endlessly listenable and lovingly crafted. The album bounds from genre to genre with each track providing a strong example of that style, the album touches on the bouncing hip hop beats of "Knock - Drums of death, part 2" featuring the rhythms of Mike D from the Beastie Boys, the sublime trip hop beats of "Lonely Soul" featuring Richard Ashcroft, the raw Goth rock of "nursery breather" and the morbid, piano led moans of Thom Yorke in "Rabbit in your headlights".
In a word - essential...

Even if you have never heard of DJ Shadow or James Lavell (I appologise for all spelling mistakes now), even if you dont like Hip Hop, Trip Hop or music with a definate beat, you actually cant help but be astounded by this album, as well as being hugely diverse in content, from Hip Hop to Punky Metal to scratched over samples it also has a huge range of guest musicians, including Thom Yorke (Radiohead), Mike D (Beastie Boys) and Ian Brown (Ummm, Ian Brown). So its all good, and if youve just stumbled on this some how and have no idea what Im going on about, buy it anyhow, and enjoy music that will actually excite you.

Format: Audio CD
This is an album difficult to describe because it draws together elements from so many areas of music- triphop, indie, jazz and digital but to name a few. It is part of a new breed of music that refuses to define itself within the boundaries of popular culture. As experimental as it may appear, this sound has been around for a while and UNKLE's deep and sometimes lonley melodies, which make it comparable to Portishead, Morcheba and the new 'Surrender' album, have attracted a large following.Inspired by the Verve's last album, its ex- lead vocalist Richard features on some of the tracks, as does Thom Yorke of Radiohead. Not for the die hard rockers

This album has alot of potential. it doesn't necessarily realise this potential all of the time. But when it does, it pulls it off perfectly. for me, its Dj Shadow meets cinematic Orchestra meets radiohead; a collision that can be nothing but good. a collection of great songs interspersed by those best left on the cutting-room floor. Collaborations with Thom Yorke, Richard Ashcroft and Badly Drawn Boy lend the album a more acessible side. the music is often consuming and edgy. An enjoyable album that forces the listner to sit up and pay attention.

I enjoyed this album - it's certainly nowhere near as bad as the NME would have you believe, and in places is actually quite funny!

The "Unreal" track seems to be quite popular with the BBC - it's been used as incidental soundtrack music in the defunct cop drama "City Central", and as the trailer music for the first series of "Rome", for example.

Although it's not what I'd call great, I find I keep going back to this album - it's definitely worth a listen.

An incredible effort. The first play is the worst as you struggle to reconcile the myriad different styles with your expectations. By the third, you'll be wondering how you lived without the eclectic thrashings of 'Drums of Death', or the brokenhearted elation of 'Rabbit in Your Headlights'. If you're still not satisfied after this one, try Ian Brown's remake of the second track (single only).
