The Chemical Brothers ‎– We Are The Night

Genre:
Style:
Year:
Notes:
The original cover featured parts based on the famous photomontage 'Lonely Metropolitan' (1932) by the Bauhaus artist and designer Herbert Bayer. No credit to Bayer was given. One year after the album's release it was reissued, with the Bayer-influenced elements removed from the artwork – presumably due to legal action by Bayer's estate.

Warning: if you want to buy the bonus track "Seal" from Beatport, don't get the one that has the track ID of 12275351 as it contains errors from 0:29 to 0:42. If you can, get track ID 12383056 instead because that one's error-free.

The Chemical Brothers released "We Are The Night" back in 2007. And it's another album that I disagree is one of their best.

The title song is perfect as the start track ("No Path To Follow" is just the intro). But there's a couple tracks I don't find too impressive, mostly a 3/5 for me. And they are "All Rights Reversed" and "Das Spiegel". At the same time, there's some impressive tracks. "Saturate" is the best one. "Do It Again" has that punchy beat to it. And "Battle Scars" is another good one as well. And there's humor in this album with "The Salmon Dance".

Not my favorite Chemical Brothers album overall. But it's still worth a listen! B+

Anyone know why they changed the cover artwork for this reissue?

A hugely underrated Chems album done justice with a triple LP release. Great pressing, and some great overlooked tracks.

Such a great album and some amazing tracks to get lost into.

My copy of this is surprisingly great sounding good definition, great clarity, little his or cracks only criticism would be it lacks a touch of bass but over all very happy.

Picked up #0001/1000 yesterday at Streetlight Records in San Jose - couldn't believe it was still there!

Controversial, i know, but this is actually my second favourite Chems album to date, behind the unsurpassable Exit Planet Dust. I think it flows quite well (probably because it's free from overly screechy noises), even if it doesn't have any amazing tracks on it.

Purchased all the reissues on black and colored vinyl and so far this is the worst regarding quality control. Both records are badly warped and the edges are very rough. I'm going to get a record clamp and hopefully will be able to listen to them with the clamp. As it is the needle jumps up and down like it's a jungle record.

Other than that it sounds great.
