What I like about this album is how hard it is to put in amusic category box. It has such a varied sound, and some classic tracks. Especially the Richard Ascroft and Thom Yorke tracks.
In the UK, where both electronica and brash guitar rock arebigger chart-toppers than in the US, artists are a lot freer about mixing the two styles. Hence UNKLE, the project of James Lavelle and illbient hero DJ Shadow. The duo puts theirsampling/looping expertise to work in the service of a project that blends the best of Britrock and electronica, without sacrificing the integrity of either style. Towards this end, they're assisted by some talented friends. Radiohead singer Thom Yorke cowrote and sings "Rabbit in Your Headlights",which takes his band's sound and runs a little further afield. The Verve's Richard Ashcroft is on hand for "Lonely Soul", which links syncopated drum loops, midtempo rock, and extended orchestral sections.And Ian Brown on "Out There".PSYENCE FICTION is a fresh-sounding effort that pushes the boundaries of both rock and electronica in a way that will appeal to fans of both genres.

Thanx for this, been waiting for 'End Titles' to come down in price for ages, this'll definitely tide me over in the meantime :thumbsup:

Great Album. I have the ltd edition from when it was first released... Wonder if its worth anything???

Top album but a fiver would be the most I'd pay for an album that's been out 10+ years unless it was a deluxe edition.

This is a great album, one of my faves. It was a shame that Shadow and Lavelle's UNKLE didn't really grow from here.

O/P missed James Lavelle off the heading

UNKLE at the time 'was' James Lavelle and DJ Shadow, just Shadows name was knocked about more as he was the better known of the pair at the time. Shadow went off to do other things and Lavelle carried on with UNKLE, with various other DJ's and producers helping him out along the way.

anyone who likes this should look up 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Beats', I'm not sure what combination of people was UNKLE when it was produced, but its phenomenal - not sure its very easy to get hold of though.

or edit music for a film is madness

Do you mean the version in cardboard sleeve? I received it as a surprise present from my Dad when he returned from a long business trip

I bought it at HMV a few years ago - Still has the price on it, £22.99 :w00t:
Agree it's reasonably hard to pick up these days.

Great album for this really doesn't seem like a Hot Deal. Given how long it's been out £4.99 is nor less than I'd expect to pay.
