From the beginning of the first track "Dark & Long," Underworld's
focus on production is clear, with songwriting coming in a distant second. The best tracks ("MMM Skyscraper I Love You," "Cowgirl") mesh Hyde
's sultry songwriting with Emerson
's beat-driven production, an innovative blend of classic acid house, techno and dub that sounds different from much that preceded it. In a decade awash with stale fusion, Underworld
are truly a multi-genre group.
