The Chemicals' moment has past, according to a large chunk of the music press, but they still know how to make rocking tunes. This album is a significant return to form, with very little on it that's below par. Some of the tracks are really hard and exciting - "Believe", which features Kele Okereke from Bloc Party, stands out - and there are some long tracks which pass through several different moods and tempos. I can certainly see DJs wanting to hammer some of these, and there's a strong dance flavour here. The guest vocalists are an interestingly forward-looking bunch, too, with people like The Magic Numbers and, surprisingly to me, Q-Tip. Where other artists who broke dance and electro into the mainstream in the late 90s have faded miserably - look at Fatboy Slim for instance - the Chemicals can still cut the mustard, and there's as much to admire and enjoy here as on any of their previous albums. Four stars rather than five because, for all its excellence, this is an album that will excite you rather than open your eyes. Maybe that's a bit of a pretentious thing to say, but there is a sense, even with this strong album, that we know precisely what to expect from the Chemical Brothers: they don't disappoint, but there is an element of predictability. For instance, the very lively track "Come Inside" could be straight off Dig Your Own Hole. Still, if you're a fan, you'll love it, for sure.

Having been a big fan of the 'Brothers' since their first album, I was excited to see what musical route the lads had taken on this latest offering, having been slightly disappointed with their previous record 'Come with Us'. The album explodes from the word go with the latest single 'Galvanise' which has obviously had a lot of air play recently, but is still the best single of the year so far. However, I recommend that you skip to track 2 straight away with 'The Boxer' which thuds and screeches with bangin beats and piercing vocals. For me though, the album hits its highest points during the next few tracks. 'Believe' with vocals from Bloc Party is pure Chemicals with superb sampling and catchy riffs. The brothers adopt a trancy feel for 'Hold Tight London', and achieve a gorgeous sound with soothing vocals whilst at the same time losing none of that Chemical beat. 'Come Inside' is possibly the best track on the album and hopefully the next single to be released. It possesses a sexiness not seen elsewhere on the album and again a thumpin' riff that will lodge itself in your brain for a long time. Other highlights on the album include 'The Big Jump' and 'Shake Break Bounce', both very listenable and diverse in their musical feel. Overall, this is the 'Brothers' most consistent album to date and one that I would thoroughly recommend to fans of dance, trance, electronica and funky house music.

This album scores, or rather scrapes a 7/10, but could, and should, have been soooo much better.

The main reason is the length of the album, and in particular, certain tracks that went on too long without any new ideas being brought in. I suspect a lot people will be annoyed how it appears to gain mommentum then lets it go for no good reason. 'Believe' is the main offender, and should have been the radio edit length, and 'Hold tight London' should also have been about 2 minutes shorter, as this would have meant the album flowed into the middle part quite well. Some tracks seem slightly out of place, like 'Left right', which should have been linked with 'Galavanise', as could 'Shake break bounce' (although this could also have been placed next to 'The Big Jump'). 'Close your eyes' is very indulgent, and could have been left out, or simply used as a closing song - it just doesn't work this early in the album. 'Surface to air' is class but again could be slightly shorter - a common theme that makes the album seem unfocused and a bit stale in places. It scores well on the diversity of styles and is very occasionally sublime.

So, all in all, an album with no real stinkers, and one or two gems, that's ultimately let down by long and flabby versions, and is very poorly ordered. Silly mistakes to make really. Exit Planet Dust should have pointed the way, as it excelled on these points, but instead they've frustrated most people. A real shame, but i still rate it as maybe 3rd, in terms of favourite chems albums. 'We Are The Night' is a lot better though, and is almost a more accomplished version of this album. So 'Exit Planet Dust' is the best 'dance' album they've done, and 'We Are The Night' is their best album in terms of diversity.

I seriously can't understand the backlash this album has received from the media and indeed many reviewers here on Amazon. All I can think of is that these are people who were "ravers" ten years ago, but have now grown up and don't want electronic music to change from how it was when they went raving. In my opinion this is a great album, and possibly even a future classic of the era along with The Prodigy's "Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned". If things didn't change music, and life, would be much more boring.
The opening track is in some ways nothing like the Chemical Brothers' previous work, but also contains elements typical to their style, and was the perfect choice as the debut single from this album. This is followed by The Boxer, a track that sounds to me influenced by Fatboy Slim's more recent work, and one that I didn't like on first listen but has since grown on me. Not one of my favourites but a good track nonetheless.
We then come to what is my favourite track on Push The Button, Believe. I would rank it as one of my all-time favourite Chemical Brothers tracks. Everything about it is brilliant with huge drums, dirty "in your face" bass, and adrenaline-fuelled lyrics and tune. This is followed by three more blinding tracks that are typical Chemical Brothers in style and execution, namely Hold Tight London, Come Inside and The Big Jump.
We then come to Left Right, probably my least favourite track. I am a hip-hop fan, but I haven't taken to the rapping on this track. The over-stated political message, with lyrics such as "What's the difference between Bush and Saddam...?", also puts me off this track. It has its moments, and I don't have to skip it or anything, but it's my low point of the album.
