Underworld - A Hundred Days Off (2002) Retail CD
Underworld are in many ways the godfathers of techno, and A Hundred Days Off is close to a decade after their seminal debut album Dubnobasswithmyheadman firmly established their presence; they have little left to prove. Largely responsible for stretching the boundaries of dance, Underworld almost single-handedly dragged the genre out of murky clubs and into the live arena, blended guitars with techno and even had a mainstream hit "Born Slippy Nuxx" along the way. Following a three-year recording hiatus that saw longtime DJ collaborator Darren Emerson leave the fold, the remaining members Karlmore… Hyde and Rick Smith have never sounded so buoyant. The tardy sequel to Beaucoup Fish, A Hundred Days Off has none of the former album's bristling claustrophobia and urban menace, favouring instead a joyous carnival feel riddled with cut-up live percussion and surging keyboard loops. Entrancing from the outset, the dreamy psychedelia of "Mo Move" sees Hyde languidly intone; "I dream that I'm chemical" while cascading percussion and the intensifying beat peak and dissolve. The storming 9-minute first single "Two Months Off" continues the surreal lyrical theme with Hyde this time chanting, "You bring light in", while mesmerising multi-layered rhythms and effects make for a sure-fire dancefloor dominator. There are quieter moments such as the breezy funk of "Solar Sytem" and lethargic folk-blues ambience of "Trim" (reminiscent of Moby circa Play), but while unmistakably Underworld throughout, A Hundred Days Off is their most unrelentingly upbeat and infectiously joyous release to date. --Christopher Barrett
