    Have you ever bought a CD/DVD and sat listening/watching it with a grin from ear-to-ear for no apparent reason?

    Underworld, Live - Everything, Everything. (DVD)
    Considering this is live electronic music, it sounds and looks fabulous. There's lots on the disc but best of all, it's 5.1 and 16:9. All music DVD's should be like this!

    I was thinking of getting that. Is it played like the original or is it musical rape like Tubular Bells III? Also do you know if the copy protection on the disk works? I like to keep a copy of all my CDs on my computer and wondered if it was possible easily with this one.

    Back on topic, I think that happened to me when I bought "Time and a Word" by "Yes". Still absolutely love that album. Probably more taken by "Close to the Edge" these days tho'.

    Best track - SRJ (Subconscious Random Jukebox) - more changes in pace than is healthy, sums up the whole album really.

    I bought 'no need to argue' but I think it was a mistake. Probably should have listened to 'Everyone is doing it so why...'

    I can recommend the new one heartily. Might even be their best since the Tigermilk debut.

    How's this sound ? Only heard the one track which came across a bit Mondays/Fall-ish which I wasn't expecting at all.

    Only on the first listen, its definitely an 80s flavour and dancy, so then it would point towards The Mondays. Theres a bit of Cure in there and a slight nod towards bands like the flaming lips.

    In a way its like listening to (doesnt sound like) Primal Screams, Screamadelica first it sounds like The Stones then goes all trippy.

    I will review it further, but first listens are promising.
