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

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.

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.

I did write a whole review on this before my pc crashed at the vital moment. I just thought i'd give it the 5 stars it deserves.
Check out their stuff from 94 & 95 when they were known as the Dust Brothers - equally awesome.

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.

Love this album. An ex nicked it so this was a replacement. Put it on to do my housework as soon as it arrived and ended up dancing with the cat for the duration of the album. Some of their finest tunes. Rave on.

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. It starts off with a stomper ,`Leave Home`. which i first heard 10 years ago, and its a great start. `In Dust We Trust` is ok, has some interesting scratchy sounds. `Song to the Siren` is great,consisting of a whiny female vocal which may sound bad but is good.the next track`3 little birdies down beats` is repetitive but energetic, `fup beats` is kind self explanatory,`chemical beats` is slightly annoying after a while, tracks 7& 8 are slightly dull. `Life is Sweet` is possibly the best track. track 10 is weird, the album finishes with `Arrive Alone` with vocals by beth orton. Possibly the most normal track on the cd. Overall a very dark and disturbing album, unlike anything else out in 1995. i give it 4 stars cos i think tracks 1,3,5 and 11 are worth buying it for. Its not as good as `dig your own hole` but for a debut its good. the beats are slightly dated but are certainly different. Might be a bit weird for some, but if you like messed up beats to be cranked up loud this is for you.
