Back to Mine is returns with Underworld following on from most recent compilers The Orb. The latest chapter in the exciting Underworld saga continues with an invitation to party round theirs and to take a peek into their miasma of musical influences. Ever wondered what live techno pioneers Rick and Karl listen to at home? Try the bittersweet R&B pop of TLC for size. How about a few headmessin' rave classics like "Horsepower" from CJ Bolland's Ravesignals series, Remy and Sven's "Piano Power" and even Aphex Twin's ballistic "Didgeridoo". Throw in plenty of Afro hip beat vibes and you have an un-pigeon-hole-able mix that really sums up where they've been, where they're at, and where they're going!

"Strange, strange album. Yes, it's a "Back to Mine" album, but its still an odd collection of tracks. The disc is all over the board. Truly, it sounds like a collection your 40-yr old uncle would put together. Yes, the songs, by themselves, are all classics in their own right. But do they flow here? Not really. Do they create a "vibe" that has anything remotely to do with Underworld. No. Buy this album if you want a decent mix tape of a wide range of musical styles - put together by Underworld. Don't buy it because you like Underworld music."

"What a cool album. Quirky and delightful, though there's some tracks ripe for the skippin'. This is what the Back to Mine series is about - getting back to inspiration and influence. This album does not disappoint."
It is called Back to Mine not Back to Yours for a reason

"Don't listen to other reviews that say this is not a "kick back" cd. The whole concept of what is "kick back" is relative to each individual listener, just take a look at Prodigy's BTM, which hardly slows down for a second. This CD is exactly what it claims to be, a glimpse into how Underworld chills afterhours. As they say, some songs are not mixed deliberately, but the ones that are, are done masterfully and creatively as you would expect from Underworld."
