No own topic for Reflexion yet?

This song is angels frolicking on your eardrums.

GAAAAAAH! Why has this album still not turned up in my mailbox!
So yeah, I haven't had a chance to listen to this song in all it's glory on BITE, but I did listen to a lot in youtube recordings of live shows back before BITE was even announced, and I fell in love with it. More than anything, this is the song that's got me so excited for the album. My favourite Chemical Brothers song (actually my favourite song ever, come to think of it) would almost certainly be Burst Generator. One of the best things about the Chemical Brothers is the amount of detail in all of their songs. All the little whurrs and whistles that play in the background, but Burst Generator played them in the foreground. Every single noise has impact, and it's all so perfectly timed and tuned that it all somehow works together. Reflexion is the same thing, an onslaught of synth madness that manages to hold all the plates in the air. Every time I listen to it, my mind goes back to Burst Generator, and the way I felt the first time I heard it.
Perfexion. ;D

I absolutely love this track, I have heard them play different versions of it in some DJ sets, it takes me back to seeing them at the Home nightclub in Sydney with less than 1000 people, what a night. This song is one of my all time Chems favourites.


  • Hmm... I was confused

aside from what happened to the ending it's the most perfect song on the record.
Never for money, always for love.

I need an intermission or I'm gonna Eve of Destruction in my pants

The ending of Reflexion was my first comment on BITE. It sounds like they just pulled the plug on the recording equipment.
I got used to it after the umpteenth listening, but it's still weird.

Album finally arrived!
Yeah, this is totally the best song on the album for me.
I think it sounded better live, probably cause the audience made it sound a little busier. Now that I'm listening to it, my Burst Generator comparison seems a little less valid, but I still hear a lot of that song in here. It sounds like Burst Generator meets The Private Psychedelic Reel.
Yeah, the ending could be a little better. I've always hated when a song doesn't end, but just fades out as the band continues to play. I'm not sure if this Reflexion's end better or worse than that...

This reminds me of reflexion a bit. Every now and then Death in Vegas/Richard Fearless will have similar sounds I've noticed over the years:

...'cause I don't like whats going on in the world. I'm scared of that...

No problem ! I don't think there are much Reflexion videos out there, because they all got put down. I had to upload that one on Dailymotion because YouTube rejected it right away.

There's also this one


but it's basically the same from another point of view and with more of the encore sweeps and bleeps. Actually I don't even know if they've played Reflexion other than at Rockhal and the pre-Sonar show ?

Certainly wanting to see their set with Reflexion in it...

If only I had more money. Right now.

I mean, apparently, later that won't be a problem. But right now, I don't have enough laying around to warrant feeling okay about jumping on a plane to Europe to see them at SW4. Sad.

Are you sure they played it at the Pre-Sonar show? Setlist.fm says otherwise, but of course it could be wrong.

That would be the regular Sonar show on Setlist.fm, not the pre-show
