5.0 out of 5 stars IT'S ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!, 16 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Where Did The Night Fall (Audio CD)
This is the only review I have ever felt compelled to write, such is my absolute addition to and love of this album.

Firstly, I feel important to state that even if you are not a fan of "Psyence Fiction" or other UNKLE albums, there is every chance that you will enjoy this album for what it is because it has such a different feel and takes you to many different places. For my money, this album is incredibly well-produced and more complete than the other albums. I enjoyed "Never Never Land" immensely but after listening to WDTNF, even that album feels half-baked now. Consequently, I feel that UNKLE really have progressed with this album and unlike some of the other reviewers below, I'm not getting the feeling that UNKLE have just found their sound and are sticking to it. In fact, they may well have found a new identity with Pablo joining the outfit and I would encourage he and James to press on with what makes them tick because it certainly isn't sounding "dreary" to me. I'm dead impressed with what they have achieved here.

To comment on the thoughts of other reviewers below, I would have to ask "dazey" how on earth he feels that this album "doesn't take off"? For after the 40-second "Blade-Runner"-infused intro, the first full track Follow Me Down goes supersonic! (the video to which can be found on the UNKLE facebook page and is absolutely gorgeous!). The album then follows with road-movie pace with many a good punch interspersed a few gentle moments to let you recover for the next blow to the solar plexus. It's absolutely awesome!

I agree with "Moonlight" when he says there are a few so-so tracks but none that I would call bloopers. And he's also right in saying that there is no point in cherry-picking tracks to download off this album. It's akin to fast-forwarding through Scarface, Training Day or Goodfellas just to watch the best one-liners - and you'd be missing out on some subtle yet still remarkable stuff in between if you did.

Put it this way, if I Bill Gates' fortune, I'd buy copies for everyone to enjoy!
