I read a couple of the reviews and was quite unsure about buying this, But I am pleased I did. After first listen, I thought it was so so, but It soon became a regular play in the car to and from work. Not sure if this is a 3 or a 4, but it does close the Shamen collection nicely.

I picked this up in a sale because I'd heard of them and thought I'd try it out at the unbelieveably low price. Glad I did too - it's quality 'dance' music, if slightly old. I say 'dance', certainly it influenced modern dance, but it's slightly alternative too - poppy dance moments such as 'Sign of the Serpent', 'Mercury' and 'Universal' are plentiful, but a few tracks (such as, ironically, 'Pop') aren't so commercial (and sounding slight dated/cheesy)

Fully mature, with 5 incredible albums preceding UV, the Shamen showed no signs of relenting. Sadly this was to be their final release, but what a swan-song!
Well, there are a few problems that I would like to get out of the way... firstly Universal - it's a good song, not their best (Serpent could be though) - but it certainly doesn't deserve three showings here. This isn't as bad as the second problem: the hugely derivative tech-step remix of Sfynx. The original isn't much better, granted, but it is still superior to this atrocious, massively repetitive remix. I'm not familiar with the rest of Tech Itch's output, but this hasn't exactly endeared me towards them...
Anyway, the rest of the album is incredible. More of a breaks/drum and bass influence than before, but as with all the genres the Shamen embraced, they integrate them into their sound perfectly. And they still throw out these incredibly memorable songs! Creative, uplifting melodies and lyrics - especially on Mercury and Universal. It's just such a shame that they decided to break up afterwards...
Special mention must go to Serpent. I can't begin to describe how truely gorgeous this song is. Probably a combination of the - as always very memorable - vocal melody and lyrics. Very uplifting and fun. Along with Coming On Strong, this could be one of the best songs the Shamen wrote. What saddens me is that so few of today's generation will get to hear it! The Shamen are, after all, just another old 90s techno act, aren't they? Bah!
New Shamenites can start start here, but I would recommend En-tact or Boss Drum first, then moving onwards through Axis Mutatis, Hempton Manor (for goodness sake don't miss that one), and finally UV. They are all superb, all essential pieces of electronica history, whether you're after the songs or the beats.

A masterpiece of gigantic proportions every song individual & inspiring... Archangel Metatron surely is a fan of the track Metatron & Mercury - two of the best~

HASH(0x9046d8a0) out of 5 stars the Shamen take house to a new level 19 Jan. 1999
By Jim Furey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Though UV is not the Shamen's best work to date, it is still a great display of what works in electronic music. The entire album keeps the listener energized and feeling good. UV is not as dynamic an album as Boss Drum, but sets a good tone with a steady future-house feel. You will not go wrong with this CD.

HASH(0x9046daec) out of 5 stars UV and album for the new millenium 7 Jun. 2000
By ouojeda@caliope.esiqie.ipn.mx - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
when you listen to this record, keep the sensation of travelling into a color-full tunel of waveforms and feelings, is truly shamen concept and the secret track is very cool too. if you think that you listen everything in electronica, you dont!,you must have this UV SHAMEN ALBUM for telling that ok.
