Underneath the Radar is the debut album by Underworld, released in 1988 (see 1988 in music). The album was a success in Australia, South Africa and the US (where it reached #139 on the Billboard 200). The title track of the album was released as a single which reached top five on the ARIA singles charts and number seventy-four on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

The album was recorded in one continuous single take and was promoted as such to underscore the technical expertise of the band members.[citation needed] Promotional appearances for the album's release featured the band playing the entire album live and in sequence.
