::sigh::,  you did this to make me look bad after Whirly poured her heart out for WATN on the other page...

I'll just say, my list hasn't changed from the last time we did this.

I have no list, I lost it along the way that brought me here. But I'll say this: I love We Are the Night and Push the Button.
You wanna know my biggest disappointment for the live sets 2019? You wanna know? I tell you what my biggest disappointment is: I AM FUCKING NOT THERE!

Ok, my list is this:

1) FURTHER!!!: actually is in my top 3 favorites records of all time. I remember the listening party chat when Escape Velocity premiered. I don't know,  Further is magical, it's "Chemical Brothers essence". It's and amazing jorney from the beginning at the end. I hope to see another "non-colab" chems album.

2) Surrender: What a very interesting "mix" of electronic music!

3) We Are The Night: I remember the day I listened for the first time, it was sunday at 6am when I was going home after a party with my highschool friends, I was sooo happy when I heard the all the "Sunshine Underground" noises at the beginning of WATN. Also the WATN tour was the first time I saw the live at Creamfields Buenos Aires 2007, with LCD Soundsystem in their Sound of Silver tour, damn 2007 was amazing.

4) Dig Your Own Hole: The first album I heard from the Chems. My cousin lent it to me and he said "this is going to like you" ... he was right, I was about 10 years old and I remember recording some songs on my walkman and listening to them at recess in my elementary school. All my classmates told me I was crazy, that it was not music, they called me Martian haha, oh god, thank God I stopped talking and I do not even remember who they were.

5) Push The Button: GOD, what a good record! Surface To Air and The Boxer made my mind explode. I was already in high school and I remember that in all the meetings we listened to Galvanize. I also remember that at that time it was the first time (and I hope last) that I missed the Chems live, they came to Argentina in 2004 (pre-PTB tour), I was 14-15 years old and my parents did not let me Go ... the show was canceled by a strong storm after an hour, I think.

6) Born In The Echoes: I do not know why there is so much "anger" with this album, it's very good! I loved Just Bang, EML Ritual, I'll see you There ... I think it's a mix between something a bit commercial and a real Chems record, but it's not bad at all. I have high hopes for the new album.

7) Come With Us/Exit Planet Dust: It makes me angry that these records are so low on the list. I can not choose one or the other, they have their good and funny things. Something funny: in 2009 I made a trip with my mother from Mendoza to Puerto Madryn (1500-1600km) and when I started driving, I put the Come with Us CD and it got stuck in the haha CD player, I still remember the my mother's face when it sounded "It Began in Afrika-ka-ka-ka"

8 ) Hanna: Nothing in particular against this album, for me it is not a 100% Chemical Brothers record, it is an excellent soundtrack, but it is based on the work of another person.

This was fun, sorry for my English and thanks Google translator.

Been revisiting lots of the past few weeks.

Right now I’m feeling it like this:

We Are The Night (I already sounded off in that underrated thread)
Further (Literally transports me everytime)
Dig Your Ow...

Fuck man, I’m not good at these lists, hahaha
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

. I remember the listening party chat when Escape Velocity premiered

That was cool. Who was the guy that took his shirt off and went absolutely bonkers when it kicked off?
Can you imagine ..... an extra-terrestrial disc jockey? Like, listening to radio waves from space? It was unbelievable!

01 Dig your own Hole (My 1st album, I made a good choice. the tracks on here put them on the map)
02 Surrender (Love the psychedelic Feel, but Under the influence is what made this album #2)
03 Exit Planet dust (I always love pre 97 breakbeat)
04 We are the night (had a bit of a pink floyd feel to it, the cover reminds me of division bell too)
05 Come with Us (when I feel they gone commercial, looking at you Star Guitar)
06 Push The Button (Felt was a commercial album)
07 Born in the Echoes (no comment, the only track that has me is EML Ritual and I'll see you there)
08 Further (dont kill me, too many slow songs)
"The music Gets Louder, The Lights swirl faster, the chap who freaks out hasn't passed the acid test... A surprising number of these youngsters don't even know who Timothy Leary is..."

You like The Division Bell, but Further was too slow for you?

See what you started WN, with this unnecessary re-boot of a thread we already had?
It's so difficult to accept people's "wrong" opinions.
And now I'm gonna add....

they gone commercial, looking at you Star Guitar
I don't normally defend CWU, but Star Guitar is commercial? With it's lyrics encouraging people to take E and it's arty train video?
Well wait 'til you check out a track called Hey Boy Hey Girl on your No 2 pick: Surrender. Because that's the shallowest chant-along single they ever released!
Just sayin'.
DON'T. LOOK. DOWN.

I knew my opinions were controversial
You like The Division Bell, but Further was too slow for you?

I said WATN reminds me of Division bell's album cover. on the contrary, its the only Pink floyd album I never sat down and heard tho.

but coming out of Surrender, Come with us was... different for me. It had a bit of a funkier take on their style (like Galaxy Bounce, IBIA, and even the title track) but Star guitar was a complete jump from the style I've heard in their past 3 albums. its like (horrible comparison) hearing Elvis Presley perform Motley Crue.

Don't get me wrong, I still love Star guitar but it stands out from the album, to me that is.

again sorry if I offended anyone, its just my opinion.

Wow, you guys still here, good to see! :) Off sick following an operation and I knew I could count on the forum to cheer me up:

01 Surrender (Always has and always will be my fave - 1999 was my all time fave year for many reasons, this album always takes me back. Plus, Kate Gibb's artwork won't ever be beaten)
02 Dig Your Own Hole (Groundbreaking, and that cover!)
03 Further (Simply incredible, what a journey, what a story, what visuals!)
04 Exit Planet Dust (Where it all began!)
05 We Are The Night (2007, My second time seeing them in Birmingham - amazing set, the WATN tracks were better live imo)
06 Push The Button (Saw them twice around this time, 04 in Wolves, where they previewed a lot of the PTB tracks, and a surprise appearance from Tim Burgess for Life is Sweet! It was amazing)
07 Born In The Echoes (Digged a lot of this album, but PTB gets in front because of STA/Galvanize)
08 Come With Us (Even though Star Guitar is one of my all time faves)

:bump:

Maybe a little early to bump this, but I'm interested in the early take of where 'No Geography' ranks among everyones list so far.
