5.0 out of 5 stars The Chemical Brothers Best Album! Vastly underrated., May 9, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Surrender (Audio CD)
I don't understand why this album gets panned by critics and fans of the Chemical Brothers. In my opinion this is their best CD. So many styles of music were explored here with many having their roots in other genres (shoegaze, house, acid, trance). Overall this is a much more varied album than both Exit Planet Dust and Dig Your Own Hole combined. I was tired of those two albums years and years ago but this one still gets played while hundreds of albums I own don't.

Favorite tracks: Asleep From Day, The Sunshine Underground, Surrender, Dream On

This was my first Chemical Brothers album back in 1999, and to say the very least, it changed the way I listened to music. This was also the same time I was just getting into electronic music when I was only 12. This is the album that got me making electronic music back in 2000, and to this day, with pretty much a full blown studio with analog synths and old school samplers. Back to the album, Out of Control is definitely one of my favorate tracks on this album, it captured the spirit of this album in so many ways. The cover for this album too, is also incredibly epic on so many levels, its just overwhelms you with bliss as you listen to the album, feeling the liberation and freedom from your daily life. Favorite tracks from the album would be Out of Control, Sunshine Underground, Let Forever Be, Got Glint, basically the whole freaking album.

I wish the chemical brothers would make another innovative album like this one, I haven't really felt any of their other releases nearly as much as I have this one. This one is truly a work of art, and very underrated as well. Easily makes my top 10 all time records, and I have listened to alot of music in alot of different genres.
