5.0 out of 5 stars Tears of Joy, 7 Mar. 2003
The first time I heard this album it brought tears to my eyes. This is one of the most sensitive and gentle yet danceable albums I have ever heard. It's all covered from techno and perfectly timed breaks of the first three mixed tracks of Juanita/Kiteless/To Dream of Love- calming it right down to soft, ambient drum and bass of Banstyle/Sappys's curry-and that's just the first third of the album. Karl Hyde's lyrics are as poetic as any scene from Keats or Larkin and with Emerson and Smith make up a truly holy triumvirate. More sparkly and with more production experience that Dubnobasswithmyheadman and with more purity and etherial magic than the following albums, this is Underworlds finest piece of work among an entire crop of genius. Another massive recommendation would be the Everything, Everything world tour video for post-clubbing heightening and wonder.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Timeless Masterpiece, 7 Mar. 2003
This review is from: Leftism (Audio CD)
Leftism is a true timeless, eclectic masterpiece of music making. As prolific and forward thinking in 1995 as it is now and will be in the future, this album changed dance music and music itself forever. Nothing is left out on this album, from the wailing soulfulness of Earl Sixteen on Release the Pressure to the heavy reggae and brilliant lyrical creations of Danny Red on Check One via the trademark bass lines and pounding techno rhythms on Afro-Left and Open Up. The production is technically the best you will ever be likely to hear and is sensitively constructed conveying a massive range of emotion. Handel, Hendrix... Barnes and Daley are up there. Genius.
