Our product to treat is a regular product. There is not the imitation. From Japan by the surface mail because is sent out, take it until arrival as 7-14 day. Thank you for you seeing it.
The Chemical Brothers have, for nearly 20 years (does one dare call them veterans? Like they’ve been in a war or something?), been routinely fantastic on record. And to those who’ve lost themselves to the pair’s phenomenal live show at any field-, warehouse-, tent- or shed-held event, they’re possibly the most exciting musical experience to ever unfold before one’s eyes.
It’s not just Tom and Ed who have form – the director of Don’t Think’s visual side, Adam Smith, is a longtime collaborator and has helped the duo turn their live set into something that far surpasses the appeal of a couple of herberts pushing buttons. Filmed at Japan’s Fuji Rock festival, with 20 cameras wandering around the crowd with notices attached in Japanese telling the audience to not stare and gurn into the lens, this is more quality reportage of an immense event than a clutch of clips featuring shoulders-riding attendees waving their bits at whoever will look. And as to what’s on the huge screens accompany the Brothers, the imagery is amazing. Whether it's cutlery being thrown into water, an evil-looking clown (is there any other kind?) or robots and tigers wandering around the place, it’s an audio-visual freak-out where on-screen pictures bleed into the real world, and the performance marches into life. You are the Brothers’ property now.
But one needn’t restrict their enjoyment of Don’t Think to DVD plays exclusively, as it’s a fine standalone live album too. In fact, it’s bloody gorgeous. All your favourite Chems tunes – Do It Again, Leave Home, Hey Boy Hey Girl – are poured into a big soupy broth of rushy moment-filled wonder, sitting nicely alongside the more recent monsters such as Horse Power and the tremendous Swoon. Even if you’ve never seen them live, you can still get the buzz and enjoy this as an album in its own right.
Don’t Think is just stunning: a demented firework display of kaleidoscopic assault and psychedelic wonder and disco connection being fired directly into your face. If we discount similar packages from Daft Punk and Kraftwerk (and let’s dismiss them as robots, as they play the roles so well), then this is quite simply the greatest electronic live album ever. Amazing.

It's a vintage year for old skool idm fans, with this film, Orbital's Wonky and Leftfield's TOURISM all being released in quick succesion. Along with the clubbing episode of 'Spaced - Definitive Collectors' Edition [DVD]', the Glastonbury [DVD] and 'Underworld - Everything Everything Live [DVD]', this is the sort of experience that makes me want to get off my arse and get out there again. And if I can't persuade the wife to come with me she can look after the kids. :-)
I can't recommend this enough. Buy it.
Long time Chemical Brothers fan, and this delivered on all counts. Its as close to being at a gig as possible, but not in the slightest comparable.
If I had one criticism it's a pretty intense experience and exhausting. Those clown choir boys take their toll :)
I was lucky enough to see them twice in 2011 (Glastonbury and Creamfields) doing a very similar set to this and it perfectly captures what it is like to experience the wonder of the Chemical Brothers in concert.
The only reason I didn't give a 5 star rating is because there is a distinct lack of bass in the sub woofer channel on the 5.1 audio mix. You may think this is a slightly trivial matter but one of the over-riding experiences on seeing the Chems live is their fantastic bass sound. I know you will never be able to recreate this completely at home but it is definitely lacking it the Dolby 5.1 mix. If you switch to the 2 channel mix on the DVD the bass distinctly improves (but you obviously lose the surround effects)
Never the less it's still an amazing DVD and any live music fan could not fail to be impressed. Buy it, you will not be disappointed.
Second only to actually seeing them in the flesh at Glastonbury.
