Classic thirty nine - Second Toughest In Infants classy


DESPITE Underworld releasing an all-conquering hit single, Born Slippy, around the same time as this release, there's nothing faddy or throwaway about Second Toughest In The Infants.
No, as I'm sure more than a handful of people who bought this album on a whim found out, Underworld make grown-up music for people who take their dance seriously.
In fact Born Slippy didn't even make the track listing - none hit wonders anyone?
Eight minute opuses are the order of the day, with deep, intense, rolling basslines, skittering breakbeat beats and delicate electronic flecks - not least on the awesome Pearl's Girl.
So if you've yet to be educated, make Second Toughest In The Infants your number one priority.
