At the end of 1999, Underworld returned from their international Beaucoup Fish tour utterly exhausted. They had spent almost two years on the road, and that was enough for deck wizard Darren Emerson, who picked up his record box, jetted off to Uruguay, claimed his mantle as a globe-trotting international DJ, and turned his back on Underworld forever. Rick Smith, however, reacted to the experience of coming off the tour in a very different way. Locking himself in the studio for eight months, he watched and listened to tape after tape of the Underworld live experience, examining it, dissecting it, evaluating it. The result is Everything, Everything, a 75-minute compilation of the band's greatest onstage moments, from a rampant, super-fast "Shudder/King of Snake" to a breathtaking closing hybrid of techno milestones on "Rez/Cowgirl"--and not forgetting, of course, a frenetic thunder through the band's ultimate crowd-pleaser, the heavenly prototrance anthem "Born Slippy." To the Underworld disciple, this offering will surely come as manna from heaven. --Louis Pattison

"I've never seen Underworld live before and with this cd, I dont think I need to. 'Juanita',Kiteless' and 'Cups' kick things off nicely getting the crowd ready of what's to come. Their version of 'Pearl's Girl' sends shivers down my spine and I love the 'aaahhh' bits on the trancey chords really get me into a state of ecstacy. Amazing breakdown. 'Jumbo' is simply breath taking."Click"! 'Born slippy' live is mesmerising with a nice twist of analogue-esque twiddling mania. And 'Rez/Cowgirl ends things off superbly,getting the crowd to interact and sing along the riff at the end. Class. For anyone reading this review would you please let me know where I can find the 'Micronauts' remix of 'Bruce Lee'. thanks."
No other Underworld album comes close!

"A great tribute to one of the best live acts to emerge from the early nineties dance scene. Many of the tracks are definite improvements on the original versions and the upbeat euphoria of the Underworld live experience really comes across. If I had to recommend one Underworld album it would definitely be this one.
The track listing covers most of their best stuff. "Pearl's Girl" with it's "crazy crazy" chant steams along gloriously. The more mellow "Jumbo" with oceanic keyboards and rippling sequencer is excellent. The classic rave anthem "Born Slippy" is inevitably included towards the end and has never sounded better than here. The set builds to a mind-blowing stonking romp of "Rez/Cowgirl" that blows your head off!
Trance-techno dance music at it's very best. You simply can not listen to this without at least wanting to shake your body a bit!"
Wow! Pure Energy. I feel like I am there!

"Underworld sneak up on you with their epic morphing and hypnotic long pieces. And this album is pure adrenaline. I have seen these guys live and this is like being there again. I have only one other live CD that comes close (The Cult)to capturing the live vibe and energy so well. This is one of my faves, and because of the great choice of tracks its also my fave Underworld CD. These guys are awesome and this CD is testimony to how insanely awesome they are!"
