In August 1995, I wrote the following review of this album:

Summary: overly catchy but promising drum-heavy techno-funk themes

The Chemical Brothers' new record, thankfully out now in the US, opens with a relentless suite of big sampled beats and fuzzy electric basslines, a nonstop hoopty booming jam for the young and restless spanning 6 tracks, including previous rave anthems "Song to the Siren" and "Chemical Beats". That Exit Planet Dust will be the most popular and overplayed techno crossover album of the year is almost a given; its only major flaw being in Rowlands & Simons' predilection for repetition of a theme rather than variations on it—a pitfall of making instantly likable dance music, but something the average fan won't care about in light of the album's high-volume, foot-stomping Beastie-Boys-on-caffeine appeal. The second half of the album is slower and dubbier, with two tracks featuring vocals by The Charlatans' Tim Burgess, harkening back to the days when 'rave' meant baggy pants and Manchester dance rock as much as it meant 808 State and acid house. I'm hoping the Chemical Brothers move on to more original, less sample heavy music, but in the meantime their debut album is welcome in my deck anytime.
