Product Description

Product Description

CHEMICAL BROTHERS Exit Planet Dust (Deleted 1995 Dutch 11-track CD for the debut album including the singles Alive Alone featuring guest vocalist Beth Orton and Life Is Sweet featuring vocals from Tim Burgess from The Charlatans complete with the original picture sleeve XDUSTCD1)

Amazon.co.uk

A key record of the 1990s, Exit Planet Dust invented the big-beat style that dominated British dance music in the second half of the decade, and it still sounds superb in its own right. Skull-crunching hip-hop loops, fuzz guitar, insistently repetitive spoken samples and thunderous basslines make up the blueprint for one of the most instantly energising albums ever recorded. Many of the titles--"Chemical Beats", "Fuck Up Beats", "Chico's Groove"--are fairly self-explanatory. Others show a level of erudite humour; "Song To The Siren" filches the name of a Tim Buckley ballad for a track more in keeping with the mysteries of a car alarm, while "One Too Many Mornings" is nothing that Bob Dylan would recognise in a hurry. Collaborations with Beth Orton ("Alive Alone") and the Charlatans' Tim Burgess ("Life Is Sweet") add human voices to the brilliant mechanical formula. --David Bennun

Format: Audio CD
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.

Good but i have all their cds and they,ve always been a bit hit and miss,they have some excellent tracks eg blockrockin beats,hey boy hey girl and galaxy bounce but alot of filler tracks on their albums aswell which are a bit dull and boring,but i got them all used and cheap as when it comes to music i,m a completist,but would be happy with just their greatest hits!

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.

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.

Always been a bit of a head scratch why The Chemical Brothers are so successful. First the name...does anyone want any more chemicals? And then there's the music: a cross between a scrape in a hospital car park and a donkey being dropped into pet food factory.

I don't know, takes all sorts to make a world...

The Most pioneering sound of its time! This album was a game changer for me as it sounded so fresh. With acid, tech breaks, indie touches and filthy sounds which slam right in your face. It is a well rounded well thought through album also, as it changes and slows getting more chilled at the end. This is a really great album for late nights when altered or after parties it is simply wonderful. 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 sound. I think that this album is a classic and has been made with real care and attention. I love the fact that it also has some ethereal chillout vocals which soothe your soul when you are coming down. This is one of the best great late night cd's.

If you are young and want to know more about the nineties sounds then this is a great introduction. If you are old and missed the sounds of then a little then get it anyway and see what you think.

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.
