Product Description

BBC Review

Brotherhood is, well, a bit odd really. While there's no denying that The Chemical Brothers are a completely tremendous singles act what with 16 years of some amazing Grammy-winning albums, chart-toppers and possibly the best live show spectacle imaginable, but a second Best Of in the space of five years seems a bit bleedin' cheeky. Sure, there's new tunes Keep My Composure, which features Spank Rock, and the single Midnight Madness, and recent hits Galvanize and Do It Again, but there's not really anything to tempt anyone who's already got the last compilation.

However, the second disc piggy-backing this release is Electronic Battle Weapons 1-10, and that's where the excitement starts to kick in. Since 1996, Tom & Ed have been road testing various tracks in the natural environments of the rave-up, and released these rare-as-hens-teeth tracks as club-friendly promos. Presumably they would hide behind tinted glass with clipboards monitoring the reactions of the punters, working out the angle of shapes thrown and jot down possible improvements.

For a Chems fan, having these tunes together in one place is a bit of a Holy Grail. Admittedly the internet age has taken the edge off the exclusivity of later EBWs - both 8, 9 and now 10 (which is the full version of Midnight Madness) have been knocking around the blogs, but earlier tracks such as EBW1 & 2 (aka the Dig Your Own Hole highlights It Doesn't Matter and Don't Stop the Rock) and 5 (It Began In Afrika) are possibly far more thrilling in their full versions. Acting like challengers to the crowd to up the mental and see if they can handle going further.

In that context, Brotherhood makes complete sense. A handy introduction to them as a colossal pop force combined with a testament to their power over the dancefloor. Long may they reign. --Ian Wade

This is a re-release of a greatest hits, with only a couple of new tracks thrown in.
If you love the Chemical Brothers, then you'll love this double CD.
But if you love the Chemical Brothers, then why haven't you already got their back catalogue?...

Anyway, to fill in the missing tracks for Amazon:
CD2 Tracks:
01 Electronic Battle Weapon 01 [Version of 'It Doesn't Matter']
02 Electronic Battle Weapon 02 [Version of 'Don't Stop The Rock']
03 Electronic Battle Weapon 03 [Version of 'Under The Influence']
04 Electronic Battle Weapon 04 ['Freak of the Week']
05 Electronic Battle Weapon 05 [Version of 'It Began In Afrika']
06 Electronic Battle Weapon 06 [Remix of 'Hoops']
07 Electronic Battle Weapon 07 ['Acid Children']
08 Electronic Battle Weapon 08 [Version of 'Saturate']
09 Electronic Battle Weapon 09 [No Official Title]
10 Electronic Battle Weapon 10 [Version of 'Midnight Madness']

2.0 out of 5 stars The Brother's Gonna Work It Out 7 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Tom and Ed are The Chemical Brothers, a duo who have really shaped music, from the first track, their big beat formula shaped a lot of dance and electronic music. Some fine moments include the guitar overdrive of Leave Home, the trippy dreamy Star Guitar, the playful big beat anthem Block Rockin' Beats and the call and respond of Do It Again. Obviously I can't not mention Galvanise with Q-Tip, which for me, reinvented my interest in the duo in 2004.

This is a good Greatest Hits set, but there's a few reasons why I give it 2 stars:

1) Singles 1993-2003 - this has the majority of what this has and more if you have the 2CD edition - OK so the last two albums hits are not here, but if you like the Chemical Brothers you would have most of their albums?

2) If you are a die hard fan you probably have all their stuff, including the Electronic Battle Weapons - which are on CD2 of this set.

So, great if you just want their best stuff in one place and don't have a Chemical CD in your collection, otherwise this is a cash-in I suggest you avoid.

Simply a great compilation, maybe not particularly interesting if you own any of the previous ones, but this version - with all Electronic Battle Weapons gathered on second CD is really worth getting for that CD itself. Plus it's in a form of a god looking box set.
