A Hundred Days Off is a 2002 (see 2002 in music) album by Underworld. The album produced two UK Singles Chart entries: "Two Months Off", which reached no. 12 and "Dinosaur Adventure 3D", which reached no. 34. Although this was the first album since Darren Emerson's departure from the group in 2001, the album is not a huge stylistic makeover as the focus is still trance, albeit with less heavy beats than on Beaucoup Fish, their previous album. This allows further musical exploration than on Beaucoup Fish, as there is less concentration on aggressive beats for dancing. This is seen on the forays into country music ("Trim") and lounge music sensibilities ("Sola Sistim"), as well as the intricate "Ballet Lane." The video for "Two Months Off", which received extensive airplay in Europe, features Karl Hyde dancing in the rain.
