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

"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.Read more ›
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.

I've never seen Underworld live before and with this cd, I dont think I need to. 'Juanita',Kiteless' and 'Cups' kick things off nicely getting the crowd ready of what's to come. Read morePublished on Aug. 11 2005 by ross roberts
