Unkle Never, Never Land
- Words: Liz Cordingley
- Label: Global Underground
I don't understand why people hate on UNKLE's 1998 album, Psyence Fiction, nor do I get why they think Never, Never Land is better. While pining and paranoia make comebacks here-as do famous-maker vocals from Stone Roses' Ian Brown-DJ Shadow's imagination does not. The falsetto of James Lavelle's old friend Richard File replaces Shadow's electro here, and there's a bit of 4/4 juice in UNKLE's blender now, making for a more clubby blend that goes down easier. But despite decent tracks and the duo's attention to mood and songwriting, Never, Never Land is missing the balls that made past installments so novel.
