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.

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

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.

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 1995 the Chemical Brothers brought big beat to the world with their classic album exit planet dust. Dig Your Own Hole took the earth - shaking sounds of the first album and took it to a whole new level. Dig Your Own Hole was the first album that can truly claim to not only have brought together rock and dance music but to have created something totally new at the same time. The album takes guitar hooklines and fuses them with sirens and beats so immense that they probably shouldn't be lega,l to create an album unlike any other. The album opens with the titanic "Block Rockin' Beats" (which is worth the asking price alone) and this sets the tone for an hour - long sonic assault on your senses. The pace is held steady with the main highlights being "Elektrobank," "Piku," "Get up on it like this" and possibly the Chemicals' finest hour "Private Psychedelic Reel." Contributors Noel Gaalgher, Beth Orton and Kool Herc make an appearance, and all make a substantial input to the tracks they're on. While personally, I like all the tracks, "Don't Stop the Rock" is the worst thing the Chemicals have ever done and is of a lower standard to the rest. This nearly pushes the album down to 4 stars but the rest is so good that you won't be disappointed. All in all a measured, controlled, skillfully produced album that has everything, from all out dance to moments of real beauty that not even Leftism can match. Everyone needs a copy of this album, buy it yesterday.

hi, by the time you've read this review you've read ten others very similar. i'll keep it short. the opener, BLB, is excellent, Elektrobank moves you, Get Up On It Like This groves you, Lost In The K-Hole (personal fave) chills you and the 'Reel invigorates you. All the tracks are classic, including the ones that no-one else likes (it doesn't matter, don't stop the rock). buy it the day before yesterday!!!
