The Chemical Brothers have had a remarkably consistent career for a dance act, singles wise at least. Indeed its difficult to imagine a time when there hasn't been at least one great Chemical Brothers single dominating the airwaves.

Do It Again may not have been the most outright catchy single they've ever done it was one of those that slowly but surely got under your skin, before lodging itself in your brain.

And in a sense, this consistency has applied to their albums; in an ever changing world you at least know exactly what you are going to get from a Chemical Brothers album, right down to the guest appearances.

This time around we get the likes of The Klaxons, Willy Mason and Midlake. Ironically it's the two collaborations that you would perhaps be the most wary of (Mason and Midlake) that really hit the spot and the one that everyone would have been excited about (Klaxons) that falls flat. Indeed All Rights Reserved merely sounds like the Klaxons, and not one of their better songs at that.

Mason on the other hand steps up to the plate with aplomb for Battle Scars, whilst The Pills Won't Help You Know is perhaps the perfect "come-down" track.

Ironically it's the more straightforward "dance" moments that fall most flat although the absolute nadir has to be The Salmon Dance which wouldn't sound out of place on some CBeebies under 5's show, (if one ignores the lyrics) and as such will probably be a number one hit for weeks.

So all in all it's exactly what you'd expect. Some decent songs, some dreadful ones and a couple of stormers.

For a fair few years now the Chemical Brothers have been a dance act for people who don't like dance music. As I write this, Amazon says "customers who bought this item also bought: White Stripes ... Editors ... LCD Soundsystem ... Arctic Monkeys".

They've completely given up on the big-beat sound that they helped to make popular ten years ago, but unfortunately what they've mostly replaced it with is a thin-sounding electro-light that just doesn't do it in clubs. If this album is to be belived, then chord changes must be out of fashion, as there are very few here. This is strictly a home-listening album, particularly a listen-while-you-work album- you could argue the same about previous Chem Bros albums but for this one it's especially true.

Sometimes the new sound really does work- I really like "Burst Generator" and "Battle Scars". "The Salmon Dance" divides opinion- personally I really like it, it's essentially a novelty record but there's no harm in the occasional novelty record and it splits up the album nicely. However the sound gets tired and tracks like "Do It Again" and the title track "We Are The Night" just sound a bit limp.

The second half of the album works better than the first half but when in future you think "I'd like to listen to some Chemicals now", then this album isn't going to be the one you pick off the shelf.

This is the Chemical Brothers' sixth studio album and in summary, represents both a return to minimalist house instrumentals of Dig Your Own Hole and continuation of vocalised tracks that sound more like the collaborating artist than the Chemical Brothers. By normal standards, it's definitely a must-have and there's enough clever catchy beats and hooks to keep you entertained. By Chem Brothers' standards, it's not as good as the early stuff but exceeds Push The Button.

The highlight of the album is "Battle Scars" where distinct male vocals revolve around an extremely infectious hook; it's one of the slow burnng tracks but probably the best written on the album. A "Modern Midnight Conversation" epitomises the Chemicals' story; they're at their best when their tracks are simple and effortless (remember Exit Planet Dust?). It's a breezy dance track with floaty female vocal samples.

I actually think "Salmon Dance" is a catchy little ditty with bouncing beats and humorous rap lyrics. Don't take this track seriously and you'll enjoy it more. "Saturate" is the best instrumental on the record and again, when the tracks sound simple and organic, the Chemical Brothers show why they're one of the finest dance bands ever. It''s a synth-powered tune that threatens to climax in the same way of Leftfield's Storm 3000 (but with real drums).

The Klaxon's collaboration has slowly grown on me but lyrics seem lazy compared to the their emotive Grace cover and the music... well, nothing special. "Das Spiegal" sounds like the Chemical Brothers been challenged to make a credible dance tune out of the cheesiest synth sound on their sampler... and they almost succeed.

This is most definetly not the most instantly likeable output from the brothers - I wasn't at all taken when I first bought it. Now having listened to it a few more times it's really grown on me and I'm addicted. Push the button was great but short lived - this seems to be the opposite.

I was a little surprised by some of the more negative reviews that have graced this album and was left wondering if we were listening to the same record. It's certainly their best since Surrender, though is maybe not as immediate. Combining deep dark funk (Do It Again), Indie-rave mash up (All Rights Reserved), deep funky techno (Saturate) amongst others, it's certainly an album I've not gotten tired of this year and rewards repeated listens. Okay, the Salmon Dance may divide opinion but personally it brightens up my day every time I hear it
