long live the Chemical Brothers! ...such consistency across their output (especially if you consider 'unpredictable' as a trait of theirs).... how lucky we are to have them:)

No Geography would be a nice album to candy-flip to. look forward to getting it on wax:D

No complaints on the pressing quality. Sounds NICE! The vinyl is clean flat and quiet. Another excellent album from the Chemical Brothers. These dudes keep kicking sonic ass! Love them. The cover is very cool. Bring it on!

Outstanding album! Maybe their best work since "Come With Us" imho... "Surrender" even!

Only really like the first 2 tracks and the Prodigy ‘poison’ ripoff that is ‘we’ve got to try’. I much prefer ‘hey boy hey girl’ to ‘free yourself’. The rest of this album is very so-so. Back to listening to Exit Planet Dust it is then.
Interestingly, of my 33 favourite individual Chems tracks (includes eps & bsides), just 3 are from post Push The Button era. I enjoyed We Are The Night as an entire album experience but there are no stand-outs. So Tom & Ed, that's now the last 4 albums of nothing much to write home about...

This album is FANTASTIC. Great pressing too. A must own for anyone with a hi-fi system.

The most coherent Chemical Brothers album for years. And properly sequenced. Intelligent dance influenced electronic music, that although unlikely to be remembered as a classic, makes sense

There are "[thanks] to Kevin Godley for the cover image concept" on the inlay. So I don't think it's a rippage but licensed usage.

The front cover image was sourced from the Godley & Creme album "Consequences".

Enjoyed listening to this, very good pressing quality and a nice hint to Kraftwerk's Autobahn on front cover as well ;-)!

A strong first half, opening with "Eve of Destruction" and "Bango," a pair of high-energy tracks that play to the Chems' strengths: infectious bass lines, creative sampling and hard-hitting beats that nonetheless retain a playful bounce. Things really start to shine after this however, when the title track kicks in for a sparkling disco love-letter that is frankly over far too soon — a brief, but glorious dose of uplifting sounds taken from the "Star Guitar"/"Sunshine Underground" mould.

Other highlights include followup "Got to Keep On" (which prolongs the disco vibe with chiming bells and evocative samples), "Gravity Drops" (one of the duo's better contemplative, downtempo numbers in a while), and late-album banger "MAH," which, with its pulsing beat, amusing titular sample and wild, multi-layered synths throbbing into eternity, frankly rescues the second half of this good if not excellent album.
