Synopsis

Amazon.com
Perhaps once you become as famous and as in demand as Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons, the world is your oyster and it's up to you to select the pearls. As the Chemical Brothers, these two DJs have turned the anonymous world of club DJ-ing into celebrity sport and ushered in the electronica wave. From Britain with love, the Brothers send this hourlong collection of remixes on which they seamlessly traverse everything from '70s soul (Willie Hutch's "Brothers Gonna Work It Out") to their own "Block Rockin' Beats" to industrial faves Meat Beat Manifesto and Renegade Soundwave, ending their trip with a treatment of Spiritualized's "Think I'm in Love." The pace is relentless, the demands of the dance floor being never-ending. And while much of their stuff is just a matter of getting devilish with the dials and juicing everything up, the CBs have managed to bring some fine taste to their party as the ultimate gift. --Rob O'Connor

"This is a bit of a different mix-up album. Be warned it only has five tracks, which makes a big difference how you approach after hearing it once. While most discs like this would have about four times the tracks (going through every break, etc) this one breaks the whole mix down into five distinct parts, lending each track its own specific feel. Sometimes it's funky and pumped up like the first track, then it settles into some extremely repetitive beeps and blips and whoops and becomes almost two much at one point, but thankfully differs up later on after 'Mars Needs Women'.

I don't tend to think of this disc in individual track terms, I can barely remember who they mix up on here, though several Chemical tracks appear given a serious makeover.

Recommended for fans of the Brothers, others might opt for the Crystal Method's Community Service discs."
Buy it for the Manic's remix track

"This is one of the very rare places you can hear the Chemical Brothers remix of "Everything Must Go" by the Manic Street Preachers. The Manics best-of CD release "Forever Delayed" came out without this track - so the only other place to hear it is on the Manics' original 12" vinyl release (mega rare) of the single "Everything Must Go".

Enjoy!"
Has its place...
