Never, Never, Land

Never, Never, Land is the second album by the British electronic music act UNKLE, released on 22 September 2003 (2003-09-22). On 24 October 2004 (2004-10-24) an expanded edition entitled Never, Never, Land Revisited was released. The original album debuted at No. 71 in Australia. It was promoted by four singles: "Eye for an Eye", "In a State", "Reign" and released only as a 12" promo "Safe in Mind".

The tracks on the album contain audio samples from the movies The Prophecy, Jacob's Ladder, THX 1138 and The Thin Red Line. "Panic Attack" samples the beat from She's Lost Control and "Inside" samples the beat from New Dawn Fades, both original songs from UK band Joy Division.
