This article starts off boring, but then five paragraphs down, Tom Rowlands starts talking and it becomes interesting.  if I were the writer I would have included a quote from Tom earlier in the article to show that it was sort of an interview and not just a puff piece.

Yahoooooooo

This seems to have been moved or removed, it was under "Yahoo Music blog: Still Galvanized after all these years"

oh it's here now.. ironically Google found it.

"Joining The Chemical Brothers is the best summer job I've ever had"
;D

An interview with Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall about the visual designing of the live sets. Awesome pictures ahead and the story on your new giant tin friends.

"Marcus and I designed those based on a lot of the tin robot toys we'd used in shows before," explains Smith. "We made movies to go inside their eyes and mouth so they seemingly talk some of the vocal samples, and they march and look at each other.

"It was quite a challenge for the production manager and stage manager and the rigger to figure out how to get them on and reveal them. There's a whole sequence where some lights come on behind where the band play, then we hide them, their legs are assembled and hooked on to wires, and we distract the audience with some flashing strobes at the right point, until the robots are up and in place," he adds. "It was tricky, but we work with an amazing crew, including Paul Normandale our lighting designer, who works with Bjork and Grace Jones, and they did a brilliant job."

Seen the comment underneath the article about Quentin Tarantino doing a new Chems video? I'm not sure if it's a joke (90's reference?), if it's someone getting confused with the unofficial Piku/Death Proof video, or if Tarantino has done a video for Wide Open - which I believe is the next single.

I feel like that might be spam gibberish?

Or maybe that's happening...?



Ed Simons and Ted Rowlands!

Modern journalism, fucking hell. "Let's slightly listen to an album so we know what we're talking about, write a half-assed paragraph, and go majorly against the consensus so we'll bring in some clicks." I am glad I use adblock.

...and of course...The Guardian.
Ouch! http://www.theguardian.com/music/2015/jul/23/the-chemical-brothers-born-in-the-echoes-review

Not a good read with my morning coffee, I tell ya. And the reference to Electronic Battle Weapon 7 seems a bit odd to throw in there. Perhaps this person is quite familiar with the Chems and might have been expecting something else entirely.

Oh well! I guess you win some, you lose some!
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

EBW 7 and their career high? Clearly, this guy has no clue at all. I'm pretty sure he doesn't even know himself what he's up to. Sorry. This wasn't even a review. It was merely words put together to vent his spleen..
I wonder who pissed in this edlusional "critic's" morning coffee...

"The Chemicals could have cashed into the scene they helped create. Instead, they are crashing around, making a racket. That's a little victory."
"You cannot eat money, oh no. You cannot eat money, oh no. When the last tree has fallen and the rivers are poisoned, you cannot eat money, oh no."

I suppose I could have put this in Chemical Tweets but it isn't actually a tweet from the Chems...

More a general stance on the Chems rather than an album review.

Quote from: Marcus K. Dowling
"[...] with their eighth studio album Born in the Echoes, it may be time to forget history with the Chemical Brothers. Instead, we should consider that this album doesn't so much define their legacy as inform the future of what lies beyond EDM."
