Dig Your Own Hole is not merely another EPD. An important album that should be recognised for bridging the gap between Rock and Techno. Block Rockin' Beats and Setting Sun are the most recognised of these tunes, as they feature twisted guitar riffs and drum loops to give something that many of us never thought could exist; Techno and Rock together. However, Tom and Ed don't forget how to make pure, unrefined Electronic music, either, with tracks like Get Up On It Like This, and the trippy Lost In The K-Hole (K standing for Ketamine, you get the picture.) It's a much rawer sound than EPD's, and as such is quite a handful. However, Tom and Ed's highlight is left to the end. The Private Psychedelic Reel. The name alone is enough to realise that this is a mammoth track, which is nothing short of genius. Never have I heard a song a awesome as this. Futuristic sounds and whizzing noises lead to the climactic end, with an awesome electronically enhanced clarinet solo. The track is brilliant throughout. Too difficult to describe it anymore, the best thing to do is listen to it yourself.
It places above the commercial misery that is Surrender, but isn't quite as good as EPD on the whole.
Oh, and Don't Stop The Rock and It Doesn't Matter are class.

Way back when, this was one of the defining big beat albums. Massive percussion, explosions etc underneath layers of almost discordant samples and loops. It broke the Brothers into the mainstream with Block Rockin Beats leading the way on the radio, and Setting Sun ticking the celebrity vocals box.

Ten years on, this remains a cracking album. The tracks merge into one soundtrack, which veers between the plaintive Where Do I Begin to the real hardcore mid section of the album. Sometimes you get a nice neat packaged chorus sing a long, and sometimes you get a real mashup of noise. But the quality shines through. And if you turn it up all the way to 11, then it becomes just awesome, the subtleties, the balance of the different layers, brilliant....

Probably not the best place to start for a Chemical beginner, maybe Push the Button or Surrender are more user friendly. But this one put some commercial shine on the raw promise of Exit Planet Dust. If you like your dance with a big phat beat underneath, then this is one for you.

An quite breath-takingly brilliant piece of work only surpassed (or equalled???) in recent years by fellow genius' Leftfield and The Prodigy. Dig Your Own Hole is an album where any song can be listened to depending on your mood. The obvious title track & 'electrobank' being the highlights are for when your in the mood for a laugh and 'where do i begin' is the perfect song to chill out to.......SUPERB album shame about the horribly commercial follow-up

After the very uncelebrated first album, which still stands as a break-through in break beat masterery, the Chemical Brothers second album is the album to which an unmistakable standard has been set. This should be an ablum to take pride of, in any collection. From the first breathtaking beats of Block Rockin Beats to the final harmonic end of the Private Psychadelic Reel you will transported through an album which has a track for everyone. With guest vocalists Noel Gallagher and Beth Orten making their mark on the ablum in their own particular way, is there anymore could a person ask for from two incredible guys? After listening to this album, music doesn't sound the same any more. I cannot recommend it enough.

In the mid to late 90's dance and electronica stood its own ground alongside the Britpop movement and The Chemical Brothers were an act who rode the crest of that wave.

I remember buying Dig Your Own Hole on the day it was released, no MP3 downloads in those days, I rocked up to my local Virgin Megastores and snapped up a copy. I was, literally, stunned at the tracks on this album, they blew me out of my shoes.

Looking back, with 16 years of developing musical tastes I still like to revisit this album and it has not aged at all.

From the chart friendly 'Block Rockin' Beats' to the Britpop nod of 'Setting Sun' and moving onto more analogue-like, tone pieces such as 'Private Psychedelic Reel' there is a lot on offer here.

As my audio budget has increased I have begun to pick out nuances and details in this album that I have never heard before. I am currently using an iBasso DX50 player, KEF M500 headphones and have ripped the album to high quality FLAC files.

As I type I am listening to 'It Doesn't Matter' and am smiling to myself. The bass dives low, to sub levels and my cans are moving some air to push it out. The crackling drums pan left to right, opening up the soundstage. Just amazing. Towards the end of the track the synths and drums stop, leaving only the slightly crackling, deep bass thrum that tickles and pulses the ears. What strikes me here is how good this recording is, it is amazingly well engineered and does not fall apart when listened to on decent equipment.

Towards the albums end it rolls into a couple of come-down tracks, rather like the Narcotic Suite at the end of the Prodigy's Music For The Jilted Generation.
