Jumbo and Cups are... magic! Coming from a different world (and I was living a different life when I discovered this somewhere in Budapest, visiting a friend). Pure melancholic beauty !

back in 1999, i was only into melodic punk rock and crossover: i knew bands like the chemical brothers, but only by name. i totally ignored big beat, house, electro and so on; then, one evening on mtv italy (rest in peace!) i catched "push upstairs": that tune changed my view (and my life too). loving this album since then!

This is my favourite Underworld album and it's also their most popular/accessible one. What I like about it is that it contains crazy thoughtless headbanging tracks like "King Of Snake" and "Push Upstairs" along with deep, beautiful and atmospheric stuff like "Cups", "Something Like A Mama" and "Jumbo". Absolutely essential for EVERY collection, regardless of what you're usually listening to.

Brilliant. Contrived as almost a concept album with singles spliced inbetween -- "Push Upstairs," "Push Downstairs" and the unbelievably, gloriously bitter and furiously intense "Moaner" relating a story about a dark long-distance relationship. "Jumbo" is simply one of the most beautiful and wonderful techno tracks ever recorded. "Kittens" is a raucously frenetic beat with meandering fuzz synth backing, crazy and endearing like the little balls o'fur themselves. The only misstep is "Something Like a Mama," which deserves skipping en route to "Moaner."
