Do it again!


WHERE do I start, where do I begin?
Brotherhood, the new release from the Chemical Brothers, is a collection of the dance duo's greatest hits "with a kick and twist".
Whatever that means.
Because listening to the album, as a long-term devoted fan of Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons, I really can't tell how the beats are any more block rockin' than they were before.
Therefore I would question how neccesary this release is, considering they already have Singles 93-03 available.
Gripes aside, however, you cannot argue with the quality of the Chemical Brothers's back catalogue, and the two new tracks here, Keep My Composure featuring Spank Rock and Midnight Madness, don't let the side down.
And having set a precedent with Radiohead's The Best Of and Biffy Clyro's Singles 2001-2005, there really is no way I cannot give Brotherhood full marks.

  1. At the moment you can download a rather marvellous remix of Hey Boy, Hey Girl by Soulwax's 2 Many DJs from the Chemical Brothers's website.
    And if you can't get it by the time you read this, just shoot me an e-mail on Isaac_Ashe@MRN.co.uk and I'll see if I can sort you out a copy of it.
