5.0 out of 5 stars The Brothers have worked it out 1 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Exit Planet Dust was Tom and Ed's first album as The Chemical Brothers, the patenters of Big Beat. Drawing from work by the likes of The Dust Brothers (the Chem's previous name, as a sign of respect to the original American Duo), Big Beats was a hybrid of hiphop scratching and vocals, fuzzy guitars, hosts of acid bleeps, shreaking sirens and good ol' British bass. Beginning with the definitive Big Beats tracks Leave Home and In Dust We Trust, The Bros journey through the oncoming traffic of heavy beats, ear piercing sounds and the sweet vocal talents of Tim Burgess and Beth Orton, in the evil-sounding-but-superb Life is Sweet and slow, downbeat-but-still-bigbeat Alive Alone respectively. This was the birth of the finest form of dance on this planet and a landmark album. -Daniel Murtha

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant 19 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This albumn is raw but has so many great beats like "chemical beats", "song to the siren", "in dust we trust" and "fucked up beats" that is a must for all chemical brothers and dance lovers. You will be boping to it for ever and it is better than most of todays stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brothers Work it out 15 Nov 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This has to be the biggest big beat albums ever. The anthem song Leave home, is just the beginning of a freaky dance scape where they explore all manner of cool sounds. My favourite has to be the mellow No way of knowing if she's ever coming home, I don't know if it's called that but it has to be one of the most beautiful songs ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Work They Have Done 28 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD
I have played this album over and over again. It was the soundtrack to my getting ready to go raving. Very acid breakbeaty and at the same time solid and sure sounding. I think that this album is a classic and has been made with care and attention. I love the fact that it also has some ethereal chillout vocals and Indie influences thrown in to make it a great late night after party belter.

If you are young and want to know more about the nineties sounds then this is a great introduction to own. If you are old and missed the sound then get it anyway and see what a slamming album this is.

5.0 out of 5 stars cool 27 Feb 2011
By Marcin
Format:Audio CD
Since I was 15 was listening to CHM. This is sort of music, I listened to when I skate. Now when I am a bit bigger 16 yrs later, there still time to listen to the old school ones. Nice one, recomended and enjoy.

Took me a while to buy this, ten years after its release. I thought the beats would be quite dated,which is kind of true,but then it was recorded 12 years ago. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but a tad slow sometimes
I bought this CD on the recommendation of a friend, and was a little disappointed. Aside from the first track, some of it gets a little slow and repetetive. Read more
