Barking is the title of Underworld’s first album in three years, and their first to be constructed with a brilliant cast of co-conspirators. All the tracks were written by the band in their Essex studio before being given to handpicked studio heads from across the whole spectrum of dance music to add some of their style and creativity to the band’s raw material. The result is a pimped-up Underworld record and their finest collection of songs in over… read more

    I'm slowly, slowly starting to adore this. Initially I was admittedly prejudiced about the outside collaborations, probably because I was really yearning for another album of undiluted and unsullied Underworld, the promise of the Riverrun EP's was so enticing. So yeah, I listened to "Scribble" just prior to the album's release and, having known and loved its precursor "You Do Scribble", found the apparent "dumbing-down" of the rhythm and seemingly contrived lyrics and melodies pretty appalling. So I put it to one side for a while, concluding that Underworld had finally worn out their welcome. The first time I played it straight through I thought it was really quite dull. I tried again recently and enjoyed it immensely, except for that gratuitous ballad at the end which is terrible.

    Hated it at first, but then I revisited some Underworld Mk 1. and earlier [artist]Freur[/artist] more recently and have come to appreciate Barking as more a cohesive latter day Pop effort. I'd almost say Hyde & Smith have come full circle in some respects. It's not to say 'Darker' Underworld isn't my favourite though.

    Well, it took a while, but this album has become my favorite Underworld album.

    I think I was too harsh on this when it first released. It's grown on me quite a bit. Still not my favorite, but a good fun romp.

    When you're one of the bands with the best production skillz in the world, you don't need other people messing with your album. I'll take their other untouched work, thank you. This album is just not worthy of the Underworld moniker. Anxiously awaiting a better work from them.
