My favorite work of theirs is actually their DJ mix, "Brother's Gonna Work It Out." Just awesome.
I didn't really like their last album, "Push the Button." It was just ok. I didn't play any of the songs from that album in my dj sets(although I did play "Rise Up" which was a b-side to "Galvanize").
I've never loved any of their albums though. I've just thought that certain songs on their albums were mind blowing. The albums usually don't have a very danceable flow to them.
This one does.
"Do It Again" makes a ton more sense now that I've heard it within the context of the album. The sung vocals were questionable to me when I heard this as a single, but after hearing the album, I think it's brilliant.
Songs like "All Right's Reversed" and "The Pills Won't Help You Now" have legendary written all over them.
For the record, I think the "Salmon Dance" is wicked dancefloor material. The funkiest Chemical Brothers track ever. BUT I find it to be the lone mis-step on this album. Clearly it should have been a single; it stick's out of this album like a sore thumb and takes away from the flow.
Even though this album is a bit less in your face than the earlier stuff, it is truly relevant to the current state of electronic music. Although it draws heavy influence from the minimal house/berlin techno scene and the nu-rave scene it manages to transcend all of that.
They make some odd-ball decisions and push songs in really strange directions, all the while keeping their familiar sound pallette. Masterful stuff.Read more ›
Also, i happen to enjoy that groovy tune The Salmon Dance. I read a couple of the other reviews and i dont understand whats so bad about this song. Dont bash it just because it doesn't sound like their previous work.
Im not sure how anyone could possibly call their music redundant. Their beats are constantly changing, and thats more than i can say for the rest of the techno genre.
I recommend this album, but the only way you'll know is if you hear it yourself. Hope you enjoy
So I'm going to break this album down track by track on a scale of (1) to (3), (1-bad, 2-ok, 3-great)
No Path to Follow (1) - Really just an intro to the album, as you hear a distorted voice repeating the title of the track over and over until it clarifys, really nothing to this song except as a warm up to the album title track, they could've done more here.
We Are the Night (3) - After the slow intro song things kick off with We Are the Night, with swirling synths and a very wintery feel to it, lives up to it's role as the song to reflect the album.
All Right's Reversed (2) - The vocalist never really caught on with me, he sounds too much like Radiohead/Muse/Coldplay sounds, which is getting old for me.
Saturate (2) - Seemingly everyone's favorite on this album, it's a patient instrumental that beeps it's way along, rather unremarkable in my opinion.
Do it Again (3) - Going against the moody tone of the previous songs Do it Again is simply a good dance tune for the clubs, it's pretty enjoyable and the music video for it is hilarious, check that out if you haven't seen it already!Read more ›
