Underworld


Reviews


Oblivion with Bells (2008)


Excellent first album in five years from Underworld, who now a two piece, finds them expanding from the dance music anthems they are best known for in new directions


Anthology (2003)


10 year retrospective CD from dance pioneers Underworld, which, while "it doesn't paint a complete picture...does give an excellent state of play so far"


A Hundred Days Off (2002)


Despite losing long term member Darren Emerson, Underworld, now reduced to a duo of Karl Hyde and Rick Smith, return with "their most sophisticated and accomplished" recording to date
