Chemical Brothers, 'We Are the Night' (Astralwerks)

We Are The Night
Critical Mass
Label: astralwerks

by Mikael Wood

On 2005's surprisingly still top-notch Push the Button, Chemical Brothers demonstrated that their ability to rock a block didn't die with electronica's 20th-century mainstream aspirations. Here, Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons continue to smear psychedelic synth cheese and stereophonic airplane noises over chewy grooves that veer closer and closer to straight disco. Nü-rave hopefuls Klaxons give "All Rights Reversed" a trippy black-light menace, while "The Salmon Dance," with rhyming by the Pharcyde's Fatlip, could be the Neptunes on Neptune.
