Good

ProRawer, harder dance sound than recent work.

ConsAt least three or four quite weak tracks.

Most groups find that they suddenly stumble upon success. Be it a breakthrough single that makes all their follow-up dross seem somehow better - see Moloko - or an album with three or four inspired moments that drew NME's attention - see Finley Quaye - the net effect is the same, a gradual...

“Classy Chemicals”

ProStrength of tracks

ConsFew

The follow up to Exit Planet Dust is an excellent album by the two brothers known as the Chemicals. The album opens with the number one smash Block Rockin' Beats then the quality remains as a high right through till the end. The single Setting Sun contains the guest lyrics of Noel Gallagher. The...

Consthere's no turning back, i'm lost in music

When this album was released I said to a friend that it was the sound of Big Beat Grown Up. I wasn't lying. This album had the feel of Exit Planet Dust but was a more adult sounding, mature album. Obviously the two principle musicians had developed a sound and had themselves grown up with that...

ProBrilliant Music - what more do you need?

ConsNot enough of it!

A few years ago, when this was first released, and Setting Sun (a highlight of the album) got to number one, I hated this music - I was eleven at the time! However, a couple of years later, I love it! I bought this album because I had the excellent Surrender, and my friends told me that I should...

“Inspirational!”

published 15/11/2000

ProLoud and great songs

ConsNone

This album has to be one of the most inspirational albums of all time. The use of bizarre sounds at times makes it sound industrial, but then with a heavy dance influence it returns back to where it's trying to be. The sounds are great, my favourite being Where Do I Begin, as it blends very soft...

“A must for your collection”

Proevery track is fantasict

Consnone

This album is what got Chemical Brothers to where they are now and that is earning millions! I think it has been helped abit with the likes of Beth Orton and Noel Gallagher adding there voices to the songs but they have got to the top with hardly any help at all. All there stuff is original and...
