It took me quite a while to fully appreciate the last (superb) Mignight Juggernauts album so this time I deliberately waited several weeks before writing a review. I'm glad I did because although I liked it from the start with every listen I appreciate it more - the perfect, glossy production, the sumptuous, rich sound and the haunting, poignant tunes. I'm pretty sure that the lyrics are profound too, though they wisely don't supply them even with the CD - keeping a bit of mystery and allowing you to add on your own meanings, and the official videos on YouTube help. As on all their albums, there are a couple of tracks that take my breath away (Sugar and Bullets, Ballad of the War Machine) - give those a listen and then get the album as there is loads more to get into!

I preordered this cd album and got it in this summer. I am still suprised that this wonderful piece of work is unreckognized by critics, and I think is totally underrated. Now is the end of the 2013, and in my opinion this is one of the best pop albums of the year. Very sophisticated, very original, pleasant and well produced. Hope for more big things from these wonderful Aussies in the future.

Would be a great first release, but a bit dissappointing after what we've come to expect.... 15 Oct. 2013
By Jesse - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I would give this exactly 2.5 stars if I could, bc about 1/2 the album is good, the other a huge let down, and none of it great. This album has a few solid tracks like Memorium, Systematic, Deep Blue Lines, and Ballad of the War Machine, but really beyond that it falls short. Like most Midnight Juggernauts albums it's meant to be listened to as a whole but unlike works of art Dystopia and Crystal Access you'll fall asleep half way through if you attempt it with UV. However, since it's meant to be listened to that way, the tracks lose alot of their impact as singles. The Midnight Juggernauts have come to represent the moody indie sound but fused with an upbeat electronic sound, almost Bowie-esque at times and I really didn't feel that on this one. If you told me this was by an anonymous band though I'd be excited to see what they would put out next, so take that with a grain of salt. I'm rambling, but all I gotta say is even if you're unsure, I'd say it's worth a try anyway.

The Juggernauts deliver again 17 Jun. 2013
By Bob Hastings - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Anyone who loved Midnight Juggernauts' first two albums will not be disappointed in their third, "Uncanny Valley". Those who have not yet embraced this band may well be won over by the new offering. The two singles already released so far from the album, "Ballad of the War machine" and "Memorium", give an idea, but in my opinion are by no means the best or most interesting tracks on the album.

First impressions are deceptive. On first listening the album sounded more interesting and varied than Dystopia, but did not appear to have the depth and punch that I loved so much in album two, "The Crystal Axis". Hooks like the extended jam from "The Great Beyond" or the prog-rock-like finale to "Lara vs the Savage Pack" appeared to be missing. Listen to Uncanny Valley two or three times, however, and you will hear them - they are perhaps more understated, but possibly more integrated with the songs as a whole rather than coming across as "riffs" or "hooks". Another difference from "The Crystal Axis" is that on the new album the dance beat hardly lets up from beginning to end - which makes it sound as though it should be boring, but believe me it's not. This comes from someone who finds most dance music to lie somewhere between boring and abysmal, but MJ are a rarity - a band that make danceable music that can also be thoroughly enjoyed purely on a listening level without moving from your chair.

One of the things that elevates this band above other contemporary electronic acts is the intriguing nature of their lyrical themes. The Juggernauts appear to have a fixation with space, spirituality, science and technology, war, and especially on the latest album, Russia - or rather the USSR. I don't pretend to understand what's being said in all the songs - enunciation is not always the clearest - but I'd rather spend my time trying to get my head around this than listen to yet another guy singing about how much he loves his latest girl-friend. The other distinguishing feature of the band is the sheer strangeness and originality of the melodies. Even on "Systematic", perhaps the most normal sounding song on the disc, I hear the first three chords and think yes, I know what the next one will be, and it's not, it's something quite different. Beach Boys style harmonies (sorry for the cliche, but I cannot think how else to describe them) appear at odd unexpected points, but are all the more effective for not being overused. There are some serious earworms here; try as I might, I cannot get the chorus from the final track,"Melodiya" out of my head, and I have a feeling it may be stuck there for several months.

I almost deducted a star for the lack of a set of printed lyrics or of any but the most basic information about the album or its concept - but decided in the end not to be mean. This is great music - I cannot bring myself to give it less than 5 out of 5.

.....aiming for the stars with the Juggernauts !! 16 Jun. 2013
By Mel Zaloudek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
And hold on to your hat, it's yet another new musical orbit for these guys....maybe a tad too mellow on the opening tracks (although "War Machine" i find hauntingly radiant) but then the Juggers get down to business with "Streets of Babylon" and OFF WE GO!....Interstellar JOY RIDE, with celestially layered keys and Vinnie's dusky vocals guiding the way....some really solid thrust from the drummer and bass (beautiful jobs Dan and Andy!) on this carefully honed album that builds complexity and momentum through all 10 tracks....these new songs maintain kinship with the earlier much-loved "Dystopia" work, while forging ahead along ever more imaginative flight paths....if you don't know this band (many outside the Australian continent do not) (yet) you have no idea what you're missing.... There's nothing quite like getting on board with the Juggernauts for one of their magical musical odysseys....despite the unpredictable itineraries and mind-altering detours, it's one hell of a trip, and always always ALWAYS a thrill.......but fair warning: "Deep Blue Lines" will take over your life, and you will not be the same....ever...
