There seems to be tons of different mixes of Underworld's largely similar hits (but always way longer than the usual 3 to 4 minutes), and I don't think I found the one's I remember best... trying again... --- Underworld - Cowgirl --- Underworld - Rez
Yes, that's much closer.
They're not the best band ever, but I like how their tracks aren't structured like songs but more like long psychedelic drones, kinda pink-floydish or actual techno tracks...

...something similar goes for Young Gods, or actually the long last track that completely spans the album's B-side.
I forgot to mention that, so I'm glad you had the patience to listen through the slightly cheesy (wannabe Jim Morrison?) other tracks.
Anyhow, that's definitely pink-floydish, having one side with "normal" songs and one epic spanning the other side.

Yes, I can see how this is similar.

Ooops! LOL, yeah. I meant to paste this one which isn't as good a recording or performance as earlier versions but since most people mellow some with age and Al "went another way" which makes this fairly recent performance showcasing Al about as far away as possible from washed, happy, nerd faces, so here it is

In case you're interested this is a far better recording by about 30 years

I'll check your new links out later tonight

Stay Feisty


fun, listening, lyrics, music, youtube
