Why do we like this?

Say what? Teatime Dub Encounters? Iggy Pop and Underworld? I have to admit that the idea thrilled me at first. And when I look past Pop lamenting over the days when you used to be able to smoke on airplanes and sexually harass flight attendants, I am still excited about this track. It is one of the strangest things I've heard all year, but Underworld's industrial dubstep is fantastic, this much is certain.  And you can never say that either artist isn't original or left-of-center in their approach to music, so perhaps this project was meant to be after all. 

The project was formed as a result of Underworld pondering their approach to the Trainspotting 2 soundtrack. The soundtrack for the original film featured both Underworld and Pop, and in a bid to cover new ground in the second film, Underworld called Pop to a meeting where he was surprised with a pop-up recording studio, and was asked to improvise -- or so the legend goes.

On "Bells & Circles," Pop asks for "No more rock critics, no more European ideas of good and bad," and I will therefore end this here and let you, the listener, decide for yourself.
