3.0 out of 5 stars So so, 15 May 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MG (Audio CD)
Also feel a but let down. There are some good things, immaculately produced on this album. But at least a third of it does rather sound "middle aged man messing around with technology" - too much emphasis on sounds, but less structure. The better tracks remind of Vector Lovers, but regrettably not as good. If this weren't Martin Gore but a new artist I suspect I'd write the same review - some good stuff, but inconsistent. and it does seem rather self indulgent in places. Watching the "I dream of wires" documentary recently, Vince Clarke when interviewed said it was all very well having shedloads of analogue electronic hardware, but you have to DO something with it. The lack of his influence shows on this album (VCMG was great). A missed opportunity.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sizing problems, 21 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I take a 43 in a shoe, so ordered these in a 42 thinking "they'll be nice and snug".

Unfortunately not - they were at least 2 sizes too big and were literally falling off my bare feet. I'd estimate a 40 would be nearer to a decent fit. So, back they had to go.

The perils of online shoe ordering I guess but these were so far out I'd say "caveat emptor" to others.

2.0 out of 5 stars No longevity, 16 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nicely designed product at a good price - the ability to charge a plugged in item as well as a usb cable at the same time sold it to me. Unfortunately 3rd time I used it it fried the usb charging port, and the time before that I aborted charging a camera battery early as the unit got extremely hot. I.e it isn't a durable product, and may not be 100% safe. You get what you pay for I guess.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lindstrom by numbers?, 18 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Six Cups Of Rebel (MP3 Download)
The obsession with the 70s and disco taken too far in my view. Whereas "Where I go..." nodded to it, this channels it and amplifies it. Add some unnecessary jazz style noodling and whilst there are some great loops in here, it lacks the sense of humour and the hooks of previous work.

Good, but no cigar I'm afraid.

5.0 out of 5 stars A reminder of how beautiful electronic music can be, 12 April 2011
This review is from: Electrospective (MP3 Download)
A well selected, and carefully updated in places, summary of Martin Wheeler's ability to write beautiful and evocative electronica.

If you don't already own the 3 "proper" albums, this is a great place to start.

Truly lovely.

4.0 out of 5 stars A grower, but is it really Underworld?, 2 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Barking (Audio CD)
Oblivion With Bells was and is for me the zenith for Underworld: their Violator or Technique, and for me the best album of this decade.

So this album comes as a bit of a shock. It's a richer, more multi-layered album, and "fuzzier". There's no doubt for me that the collaborative approach to producing this has had a big influence. Whether or not it's "better" is irrelevant. It's simply different. But does it sound like Underworld?

There are clear nods to 80s/90s electro-pop here, and overall it's a far more pop orientated sound. There are no 9 minute epics. Whereas Beautiful Burnout stood out as Oblivion's masterpiece, no one track leaps out of this album.

I'm on listen 5 now, and it's a grower. And it's a fantastically upbeat, cheer you up album. Curiously the bonus CD has a more "traditional" Underworld.

Good album; but not a classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth waiting for, 12 April 2010
This review is from: Lux (MP3 Download)
After a long long wait, and release delays, Alex Smoke releases the follow up to Paradolia.

Let's be clear. This isn't "dance" music as some would understand it. It's complex electronic music. I've listened through it just once, and it's clear to me I'll be listening to it for weeks and months to hear everything that's going on in there. The attention to detail is astonishing.

At times moody, at times minimal, at times upbeat, but mostly unclassifiable.

Buy it. Listen to it lots. This is a master composer at work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but poor longevity, 25 April 2007
I'd agree with much of what other reviewers have said: good qualiity sound at a decent price, reasonable fit and fairly comfy. BUT, just over 6 months in to using these (and despite using the carry case at all times) the plastic coating over the wires is coming away badly where the wires enter the earpieces. I suspect my headphones are not long for this world.

So nice headphones, but don't expect years of use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Product diversification, 5 May 2004
This review is from: Monument (Audio CD)
Another year another new Blank and Jones album; boy can these boys churn them out.
The last album (Substance) wasn't really greatly different from the one before that (Nightclubbing), which wasn't all that different from the one before that (DJ Culture). Which isn't the criticism you might think it is as these lads know how to knock out high class bassy trance with just the right mix of minimalism and building synths.
BUT I was looking for something a bit more diverse from this album. And was not disappointed. With nods to dance/metal crossover and even dare I say it hip-hop, not to mention a class reworking of The Cure's A Forest, this is a much broader album than any of the previous four. And it benefits from it.
Has been shaking the speakers in the car stereo for weeks now. Mixed loud, and boy does it sound good.
Fans of Corsten, Tiesto etc will not be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard to find, almost unknown, better than most, 24 Oct. 2002
This review is from: Substance (Audio CD)
This is Blank and Jones fourth album.
WHO? you might say: a German duo (trio) of DJ's/producers who make uplifting trance that isn't just 'Trancemaster 5000' compilation fodder.
This latest offering continues where their third album Nightclubbing left off with a well sequenced list of bassy trance with hummable melodies and operatic space filling synths. It ain't deep but when it comes to turning up the volume and forgetting about everything else this cuts it with the best.
Best played at high volume on car stereo or excellent Friday night going out preparation.
Their second album DJ Culture hinted at a slightly darker industrial direction (nods to Front 242 and Nitzer Ebb), and my only slight criticism would be that it would have been good to see them develop this a bit over the last two albums.
If you like DJ Tiesto you'll love this, but 'pop-industrial' fans (Apoptygma Berzerk, VnV nation) will dig it too.
Four not five stars for not being as good as DJ Culture.
