Listen Underworld – Scribble:

Notes Underworld’s connection with left-field design agency Tomato is well-documented. That relationship has resulted in a number of challengingly abstract, monochromatic cover designs that are defiantly anti-taste and as attitude-rich as Karl Hyde’s curated stream-of-consciousness engagement with Greater London and its environs – Underworld are the chroniclers of this contemporary metropolis par-excellence.

The brilliantly titled Barking (second only in the title stakes to the unbeatably moniker’ed Second Toughest In The Infants) goes all technicolour on us while retaining the anti-design aesthetic of previous releases. With latter-day Underworld much sunnier in its disposition, the bright colours make a lot of sense. Bright may be an understatement though: there are times when you can hear the colour without looking at it. It’s as visually noisy and unruly as a shopping street on a Saturday morning.

This is the deluxe version of the album and the physical packaging is great, consisting of a sturdy 10″ slipcase with a hardbound book containing the discs and a multi-page glossy attachment in magazine format. There’s a second CD of alternate mixes/sketches that are enjoyable if inevitably less impressive than the final versions, as well as a DVD of films for each of the album’s songs which are ultimately a little disappointing.

At an Amazon price of £30 it’s an affordable deluxe edition which better suits the idea of the industrialised democracy of music presentation than the increasingly ubiquitous limited and highly expensive editions.

Below:
– Dubnobasswithmyheadman (1994)
– Crocodile (2007)
– Second Toughest In The Infants, vinyl (1996)
– Oblivion With Bells (2007)

  12. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you
    using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for
    another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  14. Link exchange is nothing else except it is only placing
    the other person’s website link on your page at appropriate place and other
    person will also do same in support of you.
