Product Description

Amazon.ca

At the end of 1999, Underworld returned from their international Beaucoup Fish tour utterly exhausted. They had spent almost two years on the road, and that was enough for deck wizard Darren Emerson, who picked up his record box, jetted off to Uruguay, claimed his mantle as a globe-trotting international DJ, and turned his back on Underworld forever. Rick Smith, however, reacted to the experience of coming off the tour in a very different way. Locking himself in the studio for eight months, he watched and listened to tape after tape of the Underworld live experience, examining it, dissecting it, evaluating it. The result is Everything, Everything, a 75-minute compilation of the band's greatest onstage moments, from a rampant, super-fast "Shudder/King of Snake" to a breathtaking closing hybrid of techno milestones on "Rez/Cowgirl"--and not forgetting, of course, a frenetic thunder through the band's ultimate crowd-pleaser, the heavenly prototrance anthem "Born Slippy." To the Underworld disciple, this offering will surely come as manna from heaven. --Louis Pattison

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect March 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
This will be difficult to explain. If you've studied chemistry, you know that elements like lithium and sodium are actually metals, even though you don't usually see them in large chunks like gold or iron. Well, this album is like a huge, solid block of Art. Not just good techno, not even neccesarily good _music_, but Art. It's like all music tries to produce a certain sensation, while this is the solid, condensed and packaged version of that sensation. All of the songs are amazing, particularly the 'Juanita' part of Juanita/Kiteless, and the climax of Cups, the best part of the original song. Listening to King of Snake is like participating in some violent pagan ritual. Push Upstairs, a song I always thought was sort of weak, is vastly improved from the album version, and sounds downright unsettling with a section of synthetic heavy breathing sounds. There are freestyle lyrical additions to a lot of songs, to best effect in Push Upstairs and King of Snake, while some of the songs (Jumbo, Born Slippy) are almost completley orthodox. In fact, Jumbo is the only song which I don't think is superior to the studio version; it's about the same, but the original was great. The other weak link is Pearl's Girl, which, although it sounds extremely cool with the looped 'crazycrazycrazycrazy,' never quite reaches the transcendence of the other songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Pre-hit CD' next to "Anthology 1992-2002" Nov. 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
I thought of their LIVE CD as their 'pre-hits CD' next to their "1992-2002" Anthology CD. Everything, Everything; LIVE puts their best hits onto a nice and short 8-track CD. The versions of these songs were remixed they are LIVE <--obviouslly. I mainly bought this for "Born Slippy Nuxx" cause let's face it Born Slippy Nuxx was the HIT song on the Trainspotting Soundtrack. "Rez/Cowgirl" was another one I fell in love with after listening to the ORIGINAL version and then listening to it again combined with "Rez". "Jumbo" and "Shudder/King Of Snake" I thought they could've done a more of a better job with it just because I thought it all sounded the same except for them shouting the lyrics into their mics. "Cups" and "Juanita/Kiteless" became the two favorites of mine when I first got the CD (everyday after school I would come home and listen to them non-stop). "Pearls Girl" sounds like something you'd hear in an 'packed' action/adventure movie. Everything, Everything; LIVE is labeled, to me, as their 'Greatest Hits' CD and a great introduction to "1992-2002" (which it is now in stores) so go get it!

Underworld, the only techno band that treats concerts the way a rock band does, are known for improvising and taking new approaches to their songs live. Everything, Everything is supposed to be a document of what Underworld concerts are like, but isn't quite definitive. First, there are only eight songs here (though Underworld haven't gone light on the content - the CD is 75 minutes long!), and of these, four are from Beaucoup Fish and only one from their first and best album Dubnobasswithmyheadman. I'd have preferred "Dark & Long" (or even better, "Dark Train"), "Dirty Epic," "M.E." or even "Stagger" to "Pearls Girl" or "King of Snake," especially since those two songs don't sound that different from their album versions, excepting rougher production and one pretty cool part in "King of Snake" where the music stops and Hyde sings to a beat clapped out by the crowd for a while. Despite that, though, my appreciation of Beaucoup Fish has increased thanks to this album - "Push Upstairs" sounds a lot more menacing live, the fuzzed-up ending of "Cups" that sounded sterile on the album is now fast and commanding, and "Jumbo" is as soothing as ever.
"Juanita" is one of my favourite Underworld tracks, and it's the one to get the most radical makeover here. The drums are still there, but no longer lead; instead, keyboards do, and the bass is replaced by a sample of vocoded babble. The first part is rushed through fairly quickly, and Hyde's voice is distorted much more than on the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underworld were once GODS June 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
The title I have chosen pretty much sums up my thoughts about this group. Underworld was, at one time, on top of the underground techno scene (Here's a conundrum: how can one still call it underground when it actually is as popular as it is - - if you've ever been to a live electronic music concert you know what I mean). In the late 90s no group in existence could touch Underworld in song production, lyrics, and intensity. That was then, this is now.
With Darren Emerson leaving the group after their "Beaucoup Fish" tour something happened to Underworld. They could never match their previous brilliance... and that is a shame. However the music will always live on - - and this live compilation of their greatest hits should please all Underworld fans. It is that last great example of what these guys were truly capable of.
One cannot truly label Underworld. Yes, their music is smattered with great examples of techno styling and beats, but because of Hyde's vocals, Underworld is soooo much more than techno and much more than techno will ever aspire to be today or in the future. I like to consider these British boys as "electronic composers" creating some of the finest music ever made. One listen to this disc will tell show you why... all fans of great music need to be exposed to the Underworld. Start with this disc, and if you don't just absolutely love these guys after one listen then perhaps you need to expand your horizons - - or narrow minds.
