Why is no-one else talking about this so-so release from the David Attenboroughs of techno.
And a few good tracks on it (Grace, Hamburg Hotel, Bird1 (especially)).
After a few listens, the 'hands in the air' anthem jar a bit less. But it's still their weakest record to date. If you toned down the cheesy production on the last two tracks, made Karl's lyrics less direct on the 3 'singles' you'd have a good 7 or 8 / 10 record.
But I'd say the DiS & CMG reviews were spot on.
In other news, I interviewed Karl Hyde the other day UW fans for this here site. He was a wonderfully nice chap and we talked about their entire lifespan for an hour. I should be finished typing it up sometime in 2012.
