Has anyone heard the new Chemical Brothers CD Push the Button? If so, I'd be interested in knowing how it sounds....>_>

My views are somewhat inverse, I think. I find newer Chemical Brothers to be the better work. Their new CD is the least repetitive for one thing. But yeah, I think it's a great album and worth having if you're into the Chem Bros.

Yeah...I do like their newer works somewhat better...Surrender is one of the few albums (out of all my music) that I will listen to the whole way through without skipping tracks. Still, I did like Come With Us a good deal too...the album I like the least is probably Exit Planet Dust....

Eh..my BD is coming up soon...I could just get it for free then so I wouldnt be angry later about paying for it and figuring out that it sucks or something....=D....or I could just burn a copy from the library like always.

well, i love them and their way of rockin out, but Push The Button will be the second album i won't buy on vinyl. Their earlier stuff just hit you on the dancefloor, really stood out against other house music at the time.

Best summed up like this - They came to NYC about a year ago, did a live mix set in a club and everytime they dropped new stuff from PTB, people stopped dancing and just nodded their heads. When they mixed into something from Exit Planet Dust or Surrender, we all went wild.

It seems that few electronic artists can sustain the ability to make amazing big beats. I think you can only go so far with a booming 4/4 beat, until you get a lil repetitive and they have grown up in their sound, but the crowds didn't seem to want to go with them on the same journey. I still listen to Exit Planet Dust, the only bought CD in my car, filled with mp3 cd's. It will never get better than the first album. That was touched by the gods in my opinion.
