"Underground" lyrics are deceptively simple, but pack tons of sublime meaning. The soft, but very real, daily alienation of mass urban transportation gets artfully smushed up to an ultra vulnerable-personal lament of one mystery lover missing another mystery lover. Strangely beautiful is the refrain "why can't I love you more", which, elliptically and simultaneously speaks to totality of the city. People are described as actively saying and doing nothing (and looking away), which, of course, is a major urban mass undertaking! Humorous. The song’s ambience is artistically achieved through diverse factors, not forced fed as genre expectation. The guitar rhythms are tinkly and nicely meshed, leaving space making ample space, giving an impression of quiet space in the noisy city. This transpo-ambient ballad is in great contrast - and thus a great companion to other major urban movement songs such as Berlin's "metro" and Gary Newman's "cars". A very promising first cut for Eight Two.
