Music Review: 'Second Toughest in the Infants' (1996)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Underworld; Genre: Electronic

If there's a reason to upgrade your stereo, it's the solar-system sound of Underworld. On its second record Second Toughest in the Infants, the Brit techno trio reveals a subtle rhythmic genius. This is no dumb-bass dance music. Underworld know how to expand the frenzy of techno and jungle and then retreat to an ambient cool. The art is in the segue. B+
