This album is quite good for its consistency. Lead by "Galvanize", "The Boxer" and "Believe", this is definitely a pop version of big beat which is surprisingly not that bad.
"The Boxer", "Come Inside", "Marvo Ging" and "Galvanize" are great, and the others bring enough quality to create a good Chemical Brothers record.

However, let's say it, we are miles away from "Exit Planet Dust", "Dig Your Own Hole" and even "Surrender". Big beat was dead, not Tom's and Ed's creativity.

Better than "Palookaville" but a bit less good than "Legion Of Boom" & "Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned", it's their last production featuring an important breakbeat use.

Terrible album, worst track Marvo Ging.

It isn't Surrender, but it isn't bad by any means.

the best track on the album come inside wasnt even a single. I pushed the button of eject with tears of sorrow in my eyes after listening to this.
