Format: Audio CD
Adventures In The Underground Journey To The Stars is South's third album and is another collection of perfect songs from a very underrated band.

This album doesn't have the same standout tracks that feature on From Here On In or With The Tides, but it still works very well as an album. Although it exudes South's unmistakable charm, this is a more mature and confident record. It is sleepy, melodic indie pop with an edge. If you're a fan of Elbow, Badly Drawn Boy or Doves, you will enjoy this album.

It's criminal that South aren't bigger than they currently are. They have now released three fantastic albums yet they don't get the recognition they deserve.

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 23 Jun. 2006
Format: Audio CD
South is is one of those great bands that not enough people know about, with their sleepy mixture of downtempo and Britpop. It's a shame that a lot of people say, "Who?" when I mention them.

And their brilliant music continues in their third full-length album "Adventures in the Underground Journey to the Stars." They take tight melodies and solid songwriting, mix it up with some lush electronic backdrops, and produce some truly beautiful music. Yes, it really is that good.

The album opens with traffic, echoing footsteps, a train going by, and doors opening --probably the London tube. Then the drums kick in, a solid guitar riff blossoms out, and Joel Cadbury murmurs over a swirling melody: "Give in to love it's the one thing we have/Hold out your laugh see the beauty within/I know the way but you won't be the first/Don't mean there's no pain.... There must be more to love than this..."

It's a strong opener, and it leads in to a bunch of other really good songs. All types: expansive indie rock that commands "don't take yourself so seriously," electro-tinged rock'n'roll, and some swirling darker numbers that sound like a rainy night in a London park, just as the stars come out.

But the guys also explore some less-travelled musical territory. There's the twangy countryish "Know Yourself," and a couple songs have swirling, twinkly electronica. The album stays spellbinding right up through the finale, where Cadbury murmurs, "One thing after another/Safe in the knowledge that we are flesh and bone/As beautiful as the first day..."

South has only had two albums before this one, but with "Adventures in the Underground...," they reach new levels.

I'm not the type who leaves reviews but I have been really impressed by this band. Their music stays in the mind, it is subtle and melodic. I wish they would do more.

Every song on this CD is perfect, the combination between the lead voice to the instruments is amazing. This is one of the best bands I've heard in years.
