5.0 out of 5 stars The Chems are back! 10 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Opinion seems to be mixed on The Chemical Brothers' new album. If you love the more melodic and psychedelic side of the duo then your more likely to be a big fan of ''Further,'' but if you prefer the more accessible (''Hey Boy,Hey Girl'' ''Believe'' - you get get the idea) side then your likely to be a bit dissapointed. Thats not to say ''Further'' doesnt have its standout tracks, ''Escape Velocity,'' ''Another World,'' ''Horse Power'' and ''Swoon'' are all worthy of being single releases. Listeners should approach ''Further'' as a listening experience rather than fishing for the big moments. The way ''Snow'' ''Escape Velocity'' and ''Another World'' blend into each other is sublime, from there ''Dissolve'' leads us into ''Horse Power'' and ''Swoon'' before the album takes its foot off the gas a little with ''K + D + B'' then finishes with the nice and shoegazey feel of ''Wonders Of The Deep.'' The only gripes for me are that with only 8 tracks ''Further'' is a little on the short side & overall lacks the variation as on previous albums but the plus side on that is that the album seems more focussed and flows really well. 8.5/10 for me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Eight New Little Wonders 15 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
As seventh albums go The Chemical Brothers new release
'Further' is a cracker in every respect. Tom Rowlands
and Ed Simons latest offering is a transcendent success.
The duo's capacity to push the boundaries of their muse
just a little bit further forward into new territories
is a credit to their long-term collaboration and friendship.

'Further' has got guts but it also has magically subtle shades
too. Tom Rowlands shows off his voice where the script demands
and this in itself adds to the overall intimacy of the project.
(I didn't miss the absence of guest vocalists for a moment!)

There are some real treasures here. First up is 'Snow', whose
opening bars crackle with ambient electricity. The stripped-down
pulsing motif carries Mr Rowland's fragile elfin falsetto quite
beautifully. (Elements of Mr Jonsi's recent masterpiece 'Go'
came to mind here and there). The simple but highly engaging
arrangement leads directly into the monolithic track 'Escape Velocity'.
It is an extraordinary work, crammed with vibrant dark energy.
Building slowly, wave upon wave of spiralling synth layers eventually
explode in an epically uplifting trance-like Dionysian dance. The
whirling sonic maelstrom is truly thrilling! Even when the foreboding
clouds gather at its heart we somehow know that the resolution will
be an optimistic one. The sunshine bursts out of the momentary
melancholy lull with such force that we can feel its heat on our faces!

The enormous crashing chords at the beginning of 'Another World'
give way to a curiously shifting staccato invention and another
somewhat otherworldly vocal performance from Mr Rowland.

I love the Chemical Brothers, though I think generally they come across much better live than on CD. This album though, which I bought on the strength of all the 5-star reviews already on Amazon, is a major disappointment. It just goes on and on, with each track lacking any real interest or distinction. I can only assume that you need to do a lot of drugs to make it sound good. Previous reviews do acknowledge that it lacks the big beats and claim it's more melodic ... whilst I'd agree about the beats, melodic? No way ... it's like Orbital wrapped up in bed with a streaming cold. I regret buying it, and am disappointed because I know the CB's can do a lot better than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cracking! 23 May 2011
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This is the best reaction I've had to any Chem's albums for a very long time! After you fast-forward to just over half-way through the first track, which is a tad overlong, especially as an introduction track. Stick in there though, and you are soon shown what pleasures lie behind the curtain. 'Dig your own Hole' and 'Loops of Fury' are still my - any many others' favourite albums/EP's, along with their club/dance-night mixes of 'Live at the Social' and 'Brothers Gonna Work it Out', but after the dirge of rubbish made after that (in my humble opinion!) 'Further' comes back to a different intelligence , like 'the second footstep on the moon'. (which sounds like a great album name. You can buy it from me if you like!)
I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Standard 1 April 2011
By Mikie
Format:Audio CD
I'm not going to analyse every track, it wouldn't do them justice. This album sets a new standard for Electronic music, it's that simple. The rest will have to catch up. If I could give it 4.99 I would, and that's only because it is a tiny little bit over-produced.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Chemicals Brothers are back 18 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely fantastic from start to finish (Apart from Horse Power)!
The album grips you from the start. Stand out tracks are definitely Dissolve and Swoon. Haven't stopped playing them since I got the album. As mentioned above. The only slight let down is Horse Power. As the other reviews state, the horse sample cheapens the track somewhat. That said, I've still given the album 5 stars on the strength of the other tracks.

i was pleasantly surprised by this album. The songs are longer than usual; they remind me a lot of the kind of song structures used by prog rock bands of the 70's. Read more

This is quite a change in direction after the last two albums. There are no big name collaborations and some of the tracks reveal a stripped down and more lyrical side. Read more
