Listened to this for the first time on a long flight. As soon as it had finished, I played it again. As soon as I arrived back home I bought it! It finishes on a high, and I think it is excellent.

Just love listening to these guys over & over. My favourites are Piku, Where Do I Begin & the amazing Private Psychedelic Reel. In my mind one of the best Chemical albums.

'Dig Your Own Hole' is a masterpiece, even better than 'Exit Planet Dust'. It shows that The Chemical Brothers back catalogue can rival that of Underworld. The tracks aren't discrete, the music is continuous -- a wild gush of subgenreless dance music. Caveat: This must not be listened to through headphones. I dismissed it as mere noise the first time I played it because the headphones compressed it. It deserves the best speakers possible. You have to allow all the different elements of the song to express themselves clearly.
Best track = Where Do I Begin (wonderful musical climax).
Worst = 3 or 8 are slightly undermodulated and 11 is too long.

well i think most has been said about this album by now, all i want to say is that 'private...' is the best songs theyve every done its a great collaberation between tom and ed and jonothon donahue (mercy rev singer) and boy does JD's influence show on this track its so similar to the mercury revs work youd think you were back at home listenin to 'see you on the other side', its brilliant, as for the rest of the albuym the best collection of 'Phat' beats you'll ever hear!! i mean this albumns canny old now but i havent realy put it down for a long while!!

Comment in spanish: A pesar de que han pasado ya muchos años desde su lanzamiento, Dig your own hole continua siendo uno de los mejores cd de su genero. Además, la caja es bestial, emula la forma de las cajas de vinilos pero en versión reducida, toda absolutamente toda la caja es como la de los vinilos pero en tamaño CD, incluso el CD va guardado con la típica funda de los vinilos, es incluso el mismo material. Genial.

I have to say this is a personnal best 11 tracks of elegance, WOW! How could they have thought of this you only start noticing how good it is by listening to the end of track 1. An EXCELLENT piece of work, one of their best. You know how good it is when hearing the last two tracks; Where Do I Begin and Private Psychedelic Reel. Two words "Buy It."

This album is, quite rightly, one of the most hyped albums of recent years. From the pounding, energetic Block rockin' beats to the sublime flow of Private psychedelic reel this album has it all. Never bettered by the Chemicals themselves nor any of their contemporaries it has still not aged and I thoroughly believe I will still be listening to this album when I'm an old man.
The album does not have any moments in it when you are bored or waiting for the next track to start, the sign of any great album.
If you do not already own this album you really should. No collection would be quite complete with out it. A classic.

I own all three Chemical Brothers albums, and I personally think this is the best of the three. The best track here would have to be "The Private Psychadelic Reel" for the way it holds you in suspense before letting rip with amazing force. 9 minutes of pure class. That's not to say the rest of the album isn't excellent, but it does raise a question: why oh why oh why did "Don't Stop the Rock" and "It Doesn't Matter" ever make it onto this album? They let it down badly, and inspire reaching for the forward skip button. The other tracks are absolute class, hence I can't give it 4 stars, but skip the tracks I've just mentioned knock it down off 5. They're awful!
