Default The chemical brothers - We are the night



I just downloaded it yesterday and think it's pretty great. They're easing off on the big beats, on some songs they ever remind me of Cut Copy with the retro synths. I love Battle scars with Willy Mason (he sounds like Johnny Cash doesn't he?), A modern midnight conversation and the title track...

Thoughts?

I have to say that I'm very dissapointed with this. I have listened to it three times and I'm not impressed. While I applaud the slight change in direction. No tracks have really jumped out at me. Chem Bros have always dabbled in ambience and I really like some of their more chilled tracks, but this is almost-WE HAVE RUN OUT OF IDEAS-type scenario.

I will persevere with this though as they are a great band-I may grow to love it.

I agree it's not as spectacular as Push the button, but I love it just the same.

I've not actually listened to the new album yet but I think the opposite is true.I thought the best Chemical Brothers albums are the ones where songs don't jump out at you.My main problem with them over the past few albums is they put all their effort into a couple of singles and nothing really else does much. I still think the first 2 albums were the best they did because they seemed to be written as albums , the whole thing had a flow to it.

I'm just listening to it, sounds quite good. The song with Klaxons is a standout for me.

The Salmon Dance! wtf haha

I particularly like how Burst Generator follows into A Modern Midnight Convosation. Both of which are great songs, Burst Generator is like a more dancy version of a Boards of Canada song.

All Rights Reversed with Klaxons is definitely a really catchy song. I hope they use it as the next single, might show them nu ravers how its really done.
