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.
