      My favorite album by one of the greatest electro dance bands ever. With fantastic lyrics, amazing beats, synth. use, sample use, etc. Few LPs make me wanna move like this one!! Cd sounds fantastic, but it’s such a good album I’ll need vinyl too

        Many hidden references lurk in the shadows, "Twist" is reminiscent of D*Note's "Garden Of Earthly Delights"

          Is this really the only vinyl press this got? Needs a repress for its 20th anniversary next year!

            ' What is worth after the departure of Underworld Darren Emerson? ' was the question many critics loved working at the appearance of AHundredDaysOff. If a drastic change expected, will be disappointed. There is not much changed. Underworld is still the same, well-balanced music. AHundredDaysOff opens firmly with Mo Move and the single Two Months Off. Twist surprised by the remarkable mix of electronics and jazz. Furthermore, some slower songs that range from soundscapes to acid blues songs. Of the other faster numbers only Little Speaker against, because it could not long enough. Dinosaur Adventure 3D is more of the same, but certainly not less. Luetin, the funky closing track, builds meticulous on to a head. Underworld has proven, that they are also without Darren Emerson.

                Absolute frickin classic album here...start to finish. How anyone could give this anything less than a 4 is a mystery to me.
                Listening to "Little Speaker" in an "altered" state is pure bliss and "Two Months Off" is a Tokyo dancefloor anthem.

                  Not engaging for me all the way through, but beautiful in places nonetheless. I don't consider it a disappointment at all -- did people expect them to keep looping "Born Slippy" for all eternity? The fact that they took on a lot of odd directions for this album confirms for me that Underworld is an art collective, not just a bunch of pop stars. (But they probably like being pop stars too.) As noted above and rarely contested, Two Months Off is an epic track on a level of success with Born Slippy. Completely beautiful and bright to me -- it's a song about naive love and the inspiration that comes with. It's why I like Underworld so much -- on one hand they're a true "electronic" act, but on the other hand they make songs about life more than tracks about machines. Their songs are about something sorta consistent I think (maybe inner conflict and loss involving love interests?), and so I feel them in a completely different vein than most other tech/house. Anyway, I'm getting off track.

                  So yeah, Two Months Off is without a doubt the highlight of the record and a nice thing to hear after the melancholy and somewhat anxious opening (which is covered with a beautiful stream of vocals by the way -- I can't overlook how nice Hyde's voice sounds even when his lyrics reach the point of absurdity). What a great freakin' track. The thickest bursts of synths, samples, pads, chords and whatever the hell you could imagine crammed into the mix. The beat almost seems like an afterthought. I admire the engineering on this track because the percussion is unusually concealed in the mix -- you could probably take it out and still have a great track. But it's 909 programming at its best and goes a bit beyond the thump-thump underpinning of most Underworld tracks ("not that there's anything wrong with that") by getting quite spastic in the breakiest kind of 2-step manner. You do sorta have to turn this track up though, since it's not super-maximized and can sound a little washed out -- at lower volumes -- next to the flaringly finalized DSP sounds of today.

                  Next up they take the "let's get kind of chilled and conventionally instrumented" route which is fine by me. Why should they have to keep churning out dance anthems? Smith seems to know a thing or two about music and plays some nice stuff here. But no, wait, no.... -- hey, it turns into a dance track! And a quite nice deep techy housey thing nonetheless. Lingerings of Detroit. Good.

                  I'm not going to go through all the tracks, but basically they're very good until I hit "Trim." They were definitely trying to be "creative" here with some kind of folk/country/808 fusion thing going on. Doesn't work for me. It's not totally bad, it's just a case of, if I want to hear that kind of music I'll put on a different kind of album. Oh yeah, then they get into a classical guitar thing, which is kinda the same deal for me. But damnit, it's what no one expected them to do, and that's why they did it and that's why people hate on it and that's what makes this album awesome.

                  Dinosaur Adventure 3D is yet another decent high-energy sawtooth banger. Leutin is an deep, entrancing epic about loss, disillusionment, and depressed states. It closes the album very, very nicely. I like this a lot. If you don't like the "alternative direction" tracks, skip them, but this is without a doubt the container for some of Underworld's truly memorable work.

                    Like many other Underworld releases, one must give the album time before fully reviewing it. 'A Hundred Days off' is an amazing release, and of course one can hear the lack of Darren Emmerson, but that doesn't mean it's missing much, just means that Rick Smith put more of his beat usage to...well USE. The album isn't as Techno heavy as Beaucoup Fish, but it's hellova lot more on the catchy side, I have yet to hear people sing lyrics for an Underworld song more than Born Slippy, but ill tell you 'Two Months Off' got pretty close, with it's highly joyful tone and melody, and hardcore techno beats. The album is truly diverse with Super Techno Tracks Like 'Dinosaur 3d' and 'Two Months Off' to their more toned down dance tracks like 'Leutin' and 'Momove'. They even went quite soft as far as content with pretty tracks like 'Ess Gee'. They even have some comical tracks like 'Trim' with its over-whacky lyrics and country-esque guitar sample =).

                    Overall 'A Hundred Days Off' is an amazing addition to Underworld's line-up and though it isn't their best, It still shows that Underworld has got the stuff (with or w/o Darren Emmerson). ;)

                      I've been a fan of Underworld for many years, but this album is not up to thestandards of previous releases. that said, I feel it can't be judged on the same standards, as it's not the same team, just like we wouldn't judge Underworld MK1 against MK2. This album is a triumph. i haven't listened to it all that much yet, but already, I can say, th\t listening to the likes of "Trim" brings me right back to Dubnobass, and sometimes leaves me wondering exactly what Emerson brought to the party. But then I realise that "Mo Move", "Dinosaur", and especially "Leutin" could have been that much better with the Emerson touch...
                      But, let's be clear, this is still a really good album!

                        A lot of people were put off by this album, but I still can't understand why. I didn't really like it at first, but after a while, I've realized how great this album is. It does sound quite different to what Underworld have done previously, but I think it was a nice change of direction. The album is VERY VERY chilled and deep. It's almost ambient in places. However, I agree that some tracks do get boring after a while - for example, "Twist" and "Little Speaker", but I really love the rest of the album. Tracks like "Two Months Off", "Luetin" and "Mo Move" make it even more special.
