The Chemical Brothers bring us something quite new. Electronic music with a big beat supposed not to fill out only rave parties but arenas and stadiums. This album sound like what it is, the beginning of a new musical style. Not done to perfection yet but with the seeds all there.

The Chemical Brothers themselves will still do better as would people like Fat Boy Slim, but the seeds for the huge success of big beat are more than apparent here. The music is exciting, mixes rock and electronic sounds very well and therefore has broadened the appeal of the music beyond glowstick twirlers.

This is very energetic and quite fun music, but it is still a bit monotonous, this would be better and better as years go by, until the beginning of the 00s when it started to flag a bit. So good, but better to come... waiting for
Dig Your Own Hole.
