5.0 out of 5 stars The Chems are back!, 10 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Further (Audio CD)
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!

I would agree with most of what you said, but although it only has 8 tracks, one of them is 12 mins long and the rest are at least 5 mins. Clocking in at more than 50 mins in total, I would hardly say that was a short album.
