Something of a rejuvenation
2010 | Label: Om Records

The rowdy and hedonistic London overspill county of Essex has been part of Underworld's shared psyche for so long that it's a wonder they've never used Barking — which is an Essex town, a crazy state of mind, and the battle cry of another Underworld obsession, dogs — as a title before.

Not as abstract as 'Oblivion With Bells' and not as harsh as 'A Hundred Days Off', Underworld appears to have moved towards the center with an accessible, downright 'catchy' release. Favorite tracks are 'Scribble', 'Always Loved a Film', and 'Diamond Jigsaw.' To be honest, the whole affair harks back more towards Underworld MkI then Underwolrd MkII in attitude.
