Product Details
Performer Notes
  • 2005, Italian issue; includes "Boxer" and "Galvanize."
  • The Chemical Brothers' fifth album--a stunning return to bold, brilliant, mid-1990s form--delivers fierce beats, propulsive rhythms, and hallucinatory samples that are, if anything, even better than some of the duo's earliest work, moving in exciting and different directions.
  • The requisite "big beat" dance-floor material is exemplified by "The Big Jump" and the ever-evolving "Believe" (with vocals by Bloc Party's Kele Okereke), but the real surprise here is the wealth of gentler tracks. "Hold Tight London" features a lovely vocal by Anna-Lynne Williams and a glistening sonic edge that's both glacial and warm, and the lengthy, gorgeous instrumental "Surface to Air" glides along on haunting, beat-driven lines. Then there's the flipside of that, as on "Galvanize," a deep-funk-fried slice of Arabian techno-rap featuring Q-Tip, and "Left Right," a blistering anti-war track with rhymes by Anwar Superstar. Unlike much of the Brothers' earlier output, PUSH THE BUTTON covers a lot of ground, uncovering other sonic worlds just beneath the well-tread electronica surface.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (No. 966, p.61) - 3.5 stars out of 5 - "[T]here's hope for stadium-ready dance music in the Chemical Brothers' fifth album....full of beat-wise psychedelia..."

Spin (p.87) - "It's the album on which the Chems relax into a comfortable maturity, secure in their status as elder statesmen." - Grade: B+

Uncut (p.73) - 4 stars out of 5 - "The standout is grand finale 'Surface To Air', which cements the duo's long love affair with New Order across an epic seven-minute symphony of lean melody and pulsing melodrama."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.101) - 3 stars out of 5 - "[They have] succeeded in making a tougher, darker-sounding record....The guest list is substantial and crucial."
