Alice in Ultraland is a 2005 album by experimental electronica group Amorphous Androgynous, which is a side project of The Future Sound of London.

The album

Like the duo's previous album, The Isness, Alice in Ultraland has a psychedelic feel, but has more electronica tracks. It features more of a funk and blues influence than The Isness.[1] It also includes an extended version of the discarded Isness track "Yes My Brother" (titled "The Prophet" here).
