Well, for all fans of the most innovative electronica/warm rock/intelligent organic mash ups the good news is that UNKLE have done it again.
The template remains as before, beautiful music with a plethora of guest vocalists (although less well known than on previous albums) and lush packaging.
Gavin Clark is here as well, marking his territory on yet another outing, he must have his own locker at UNKLE HQ by now.
The packaging in the limited edition is cool, a thick board book of nice photographic art is the perfect visual accompaniment to the music.
Quite simply, if you have liked anything UNKLE have done before you will love this.
Seek out and enjoy. This ain't pop music, this is the future.
*******UPDATE - 23rd AUGUST*********
Three months in and this album is still getting heavy airtime on my player. It still justifies five stars as far as I am concerned, I like each track on the album and even my two year old daughter constantly asks for me to play 'The Answer' (which she thinks is called Perfect Weather), the beat is so good on that track that she totally freaks out and dances her little legs off when it goes on. I listen to the album when doing workouts and it is perfect motivational music.
Anyone who derides UNKLE as bland background music is of course entitled to their own opinion but in the day where all pop music sounds identical and is designed to supply a quick fix (chorus after 20 seconds) I totally applaud UNKLE for making something different, deeper and more substantial.
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.Read more ›
Where Did the Night Fall eschews the now-familiar 'package deal' involving a standard Making Of DVD in favour of a second CD of instrumental versions of the album. Good for soundtracking to action shows, such as The Wire, etc.
They've thought carefully about offering the kind of special edition package that will make you want to keep the album for a very very long time. Working with the industry's leading image creators, Nick Thornton Jones & Warren du Preez, the finished product is pretty impressive. British understatement at work in this last comment.
The sturdy outer casing features the silver foil image that visually promotes the album. This image continues on the interior walls of the slipbox. No cutting corners here. A double wallet houses the two discs, each with its own inner sleeve. A 32-page booklet outlines personnel on each song and extensive album credits. Finally, saving the best 'til last - another book, featuring 30 board prints, depicting images that can be seen as videos on UNKLE's facebook page or website.
This is a substantial package put together with a great deal of care and attention. With James Lavelle as both creative and musical director of the UNKLE oeuvre, you get the best of two worlds. Vinyl's halcyon days as a youth culture artefact, combined with cutting edge images. In much the same way that Pink Floyd impressed the buying public by shrink-wrapping "Wish You Were Here" in a glossy black vinyl sheet before revealing an album of images by Hipgnosis.Read more ›
