time for another mini-review. this one is a tough call. i'm a pretty big underworld fan so i'm sure i'm a little biased. if i had to describe the album, perhaps i'd say "inspired but similar" - not that that's necessarily a bad thing. this album has all the style and substance of every other underworld album. it may not be quite as hard-hitting...perhaps a slightly more laid back tone. not quite ambient, but definitely easier on the ears then some of their other stuff. think of an album you would love to hear late at night, meandering aimlessly on the freeway. it's got enough oomph to keep you awake, but it won't distract you from enjoying the moonlight drive and your other thoughts. with this genre, it's always the "little sounds" that they incorporate that make the difference. i always use the term layers and texture...anyway...this album has enough of those "nooks & crannies" to keep the listener interested. standout tracks include: two months off, trim, ballet lane, and luetin but, as much as i like the album, i feel like i've heard it before. there's nothing that stands out from their other stuff...i don't get a sense that this album is a big change of pace for them. so, for underworld fans, definitely give this a test drive. you may enjoy it...or you may think to yourself you've heard this all before. i give this cd a "B-"
