They're packed with high concept, dense with thematic elements ripped from the headlines (especially the war in Iraq), and this time out, include an artwork-packed booklet (featuring Massive Attack's Robert del Naja, Ben Drury, and Will Bankhead). The fact that the music has never fulfilled its expectations, despite the undeniable talents of everyone involved, points to a too-many-cooks problem. War Stories finds the group, a core duo of Lavelle and Richard File, enlisting major production help from Chris Goss.

As Lavelle tells it If the first record was UNKLE does hip-hop and the second record was UNKLE does electronic, then this one is like UNKLE does rock, but it’ll hopefully still have its continuity. The first blast of distorted guitar is jarring to a fan expecting to hear more of the strangely natural sounding electronics of Never, Never, Land.

All Surrender) UK release date: 2 July 2007. The first sign that War Stories marks a change of direction for Lavelle’s group is the choice of co-producer. It sounds almost ominious, as if something appalling’s about to happen, but the band are determined to party before it does

Reviews about UNKLE - War Stories (3):
It's beyond me why so many established artists, after a couple or more quality albums go down the guest vocalist path. Not only have UNKLE done that here, but they've gone alternative rock as well. A largely forgettable release in my opinion. To add insult to injury, the 'bonus' disc is made up of instrumental versions, not even remixes, which would've made it slightly more worth buying. I'm afraid this one will be a disappointment for many and a cop out for others. Not really sure how it has an average rating of over 4/5. Maybe I'm missing something....
This is a rock album. And its NOT what I'm looking for. If you like rock music or alternative, and vocals, then this is for you.But I can't stand this release. How is this trip-hop? I don't get it. It's got more in common with big beat.
Omg 'can't stand it' you say? Maybe it's about time you bought some ears + open mindedness edition, palJust because War Stories isn't initially tagged with trip-hop doesn't mean you gotta exclude it like a white supremacist
