One of the best dance albums of all time,
This review is from: Everything Everything (Audio CD)
There is something about playing live that makes great artists rise above their ordinary level. Radiohead's live recordings are infintely better than their album versions (just compare spinning plates on I Might be wrong (live recordings) with the one on Amnesiac) And Underworld are no different: the energy captured here makes this a truly remarkable record, along with, of course, the exceptionally high standard of the music. There is not a single dud track here, just a relentless build to the euphoric climax 'Rez/Cowgirl', through some of their best work. The version of Born Slippy here will confirm to all those who under-value it due to its commercial success that this is a truly magnificent song. And Pearl's Girl will send shivers down your spine.
Buy this album: it is a little slice of genius, the definitive record by perhaps the finest dance act of the 90's.
