Product Description

Already logging another Billboard number one with "Afrika" in October, the stage is now set for a full on Chemical Brothers campaign for Come with U s. The conquest begins with "Star Guitar," the sec ond single and sure smash that comes nearly three months before release.

Amazon.com

Besides Tom Rolands and Ed Simons of the Chemical Brothers, few artists have the clout, chops, and DJ wherewithal to change the landscape of dance music. Still, it's not something the duo seems in a particular hurry to do. Since the release of the now-classic Exit Planet Dust, an intensely groove-able rap-stomp hodgepodge, and Dig Your Own Hole, their 1997 breakout record, big beat has been eating itself in a commercialized frat-boy frenzy. Yet the Brothers haven't found--or even really tried to find--that Something Else to turn the masses on in a different, exciting direction. True, their last full-length, Surrender, found them incorporating a house-ier feel, mixing a retro aesthetic with four-on-the-floor beats, but it was really the same old batch of clever samples and rolling thumps. Which wasn't necessarily a bad thing; most of us have happily run in place right along with them. Come with Us also finds them pulling all the usual tricks; there's an irresistible dance-floor anthem or two ("Star Guitar," "Denmark"), swooping keyboard tricks ("Come with Us"), guest vocalists (Beth Orton, Richard Ashcroft), and the amazing fluidity that allows a moody song like Orton's "The State We're In" to sound perfectly, logically in its place. While it sounds like they're coasting, their refined, sugary formula is so sweet, it's hard to complain. --Matthew Cooke

This is easily their tightest album in years. The ubiquitous "It Began in Afrika" is only a teaser. Subsequent tracks like "Star Guitar" and "Hoops" pay a playful homage to the New Order sound, with just a touch of trance lacing over its beats - perfect pop concoctions. "Denmark" has that hard house sound, with killer bass. But the real treats are "The State We're In" with Beth Orton and "The Test" with Richard Ashcroft from the now defunct Verve. I usually tend to stay away from the vocal laden electronica, but these are genuinely moving collaborations. Beth Orton's voice wafts over the ethereal track, and "The Test" is more poignant and touching than any of the songs on Richard Ashcroft's solo album that came out last year. (or was it 2 yrs ago?) Although this latest effort from the Chemical Bros. doesn't break any new grounds (hence the 4 stars), that wasn't in their intention, either. All you get is a tightly cohesive album with some bomb tracks with blood-curdling bass, and a little whimsy thrown in for a good measure. I'll be listening to this one for a while to come.

For those eagerly awaiting this, the new chem bros cd, you will not be disappointed. 'Come with us' is very much a chemical brothers record, with high-octane songs for starters, more rhythmic songs in the middle, the usual 'coming down/female vocal' songs towards the end, and finally, the epic song to end the cd. Overall, I would say this is an improvement on 'surrender', though in many ways the beats and effects are reminiscent of 'exit planet dust'.
What are the songs like? you ask...
Well...
'Come with us': Starting with strings and a booming voice, and following with drawn-out, spacey effects (along with the next song, these are as close to the high-frequency/kettle-whistling/acid effects that filled 'dig your own hole' as you'll get on this album), this song acts as a steadily building welcome to the rest of the album.
'It began in afrika-ka-ka-ka-ka-ka-ka-ka...': When the single was released it was admittedly annoying. However, look past the repetitive vocals and you'll find the chemicals reverting back to old methods with a song that would fit in neatly on any of their previous albums.
'Galaxy bounce' differs slightly to the version that appears on the tomb raider soundtrack. Preceded by turntables scractching in the vein of 'in dust we trust', this song shows the chems cutting up samples, backed a rolling bassline. Though this song is fine on its own, it seems somewhat out of place on this album.
'Star Guitar' is an exercise in sequencing beats (as indicated by the film clip). This dreamy song is the flagship of the album, showing the chems production qualities at their finest.
'Hoops' will no doubt stay in your head long after you've listened to the album.

WOW! This album blew me away! I didn't think that it could top SURRENDER [in my opinion, the best Chemical Brothers album to date] when I went and bought it. How wrong I was. This album is insane - it's just so good! It's just one huge freaking sonic hip-hop dance party. It flat-out rocks.
"Come With Us," the mindblowing opener, complete with strings and dance grooves ... then "Star Guitar," a breezy, light jam unlike anything I've heard in a while ... then segue ourselves into "The Beth Orton Collaboration," - "The State We're In." While it isn't as good as "Where Do I Begin," [what is?] it still is a pulisng, trip-hopping psychedelic masterpiece. But wait, you've got to wait for the best (thanks to Mr. Cocker for that one!)
"The Test," starring one Mr. Richard Ashcroft, is, in my panicked state of Chemical-frenzy, the best Brothers song EVER . It's a four-on-the-floor, ode to partying masterpiece - it's got the signature amazing Brothers drumming in back, the signature swirl of beats ... but it just works this time like never before. Truly awe-inspiring - just like this entire album.
Now, come December, when I look at the Blur, Beck, Blues Explosion, DJ Shadow and Badly Drawn Boy albums I bought in 2002, I'm sure they will all be great. But none will reach the dizzying dance-floor heights that this masterpiece does. It is just so good. Please buy COME WITH US; you won't regret it one bit.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
My introduction to techno/electronica music arrived with the Chemical Brothers "Exit Planet Dust" CD. I read the review in "Rolling Stone," liked what I read, purchased the disc and loved it from the first play. Since then I've aquired "Dig Your Own Hole," "Surrender" and "Come with Us." All are excellent albums but my favorite is the latter. I'm not sure exactly why. Maybe the last aquired is my favorite because I'm just a little burned out by playing the others so much.

"Come With Us" is a terrific album. Usually I like to note the best songs first and then get down to the ones I care the least about. Well, let's reverse it on this one. I don't particularly care for Chemical Brothers songs having extensive vocals. Thus "The State We're In" and "The Test" are my least favored tunes on this disc. They aren't bad songs; I just don't care for them as much as the others. Having said this, all other tracks on this disc are incredibly good. Wonderful dance music! Complex polyrhythyms are intricately interwoven with wonderfully hooky melodic lines on all songs. The best way to listen and appreciate the music, of course, is by dancing to it. And what an experience that can be! I'm unable to choose a favorite selection. Perhaps "Come With Us," "It Began in Africa," "Star Guitar" or "My Elastic Eye" might garner my vote, but "Galaxy Bounce," "Hoops," "Denmark" and "Pioneer Skies" wouldn't be far behind. Now, if I could just get rid of those two tracks with vocals and perhaps add a couple such as "It Doesn't Matter" and "Lost in the K-Hole" from the "Dig Your Own Hole" disc, I'd have a perfect Chemical Brothers CD.
