This review is from: War Stories (Audio CD)
(By the way, in case you want to know whether this review is relevant to you, my favourite artists include The Chemical Brothers, Radiohead, Bonobo, REM, Queens of the Stone Age, Gorillaz etc...)
I picked up on UNKLE after hearing their remix of QOTSA's No-one Knows on the soundtrack for SSX3 (and anyone that's played the game could tell you it's nigh-on impossible to listen to music in it!). UNKLE are definitely one of the best band of their genre - which is pretty much every genre you could think of. This is electronica (persons and machinery), punk (restless), rock (burn my shadow), dance (chemistry), ambient (twilight), pop (mayday), orchestral (when things explode)...
Basically, if you like music, you will LOVE this.
The only possible duds are Hold My Hand, Lawless and Morning Rage, but that's merely in contrast with the rest of the album - They're still good songs.
If you're not sure whether to purchase or not, try to listen to Keys To The Kingdom, Price You Pay, Burn My Shadow and Mayday and you WILL want this.
Thanks for reading!
