The Chemical Brothers - Push The Button
Quote from: ACIDCHILDREN on Aug 26, 2015, 20:23

It's my least favourite Chems album, having said that it's got some great tracks, including Come Inside. I really like BITE's but it does remind me of PTB in some ways. I have vague recollections of Ed once saying at Turnmills that Come With Us wasn't there best album.

This is certainly true. Their best album is Further. All the other records are bloody brilliant, but none achieves this completely perfect arrangement of songs, without a single weak second on the whole record.

Not another poll please

I have tons of embarrassing music, especially in Cd form. Lady Gaga was my last purchase.  I got it because at the time, I saw her on a morning show in NY and was blown away by her high vocals and piano skills. That gave me reason to get it.

I'm actually in the process of selling some of my embarrassing crap at the record stores to get new and better sounding crap!

We should make a poll about whether to have another poll or not...

Surface to Air, which is an uninspired rip off of TPPR and TSU.

Quote from: WhiteNoise on Aug 26, 2015, 16:16

This is the silliest thing I've ever heard.
Gotta agree with WN. For me Surface To Air is the most inspiring  track on the album.

And really none of the Chems albums should be on this thread. Not even Come With Us.
Yea though I walk through the valley and shadow of death
every day of my life,
I fear no evil for The Lord is with me.

Now this is proper embarrassing shit. Well done Inchem, that's the spirit!

I've never understood the aversion for CWU. What is it that people don't like? The only thing I can think of is that it's too short.

Most of today's famous female singers deserve the attention they receive. It's what they do with their careers that leaves us disappointed.

All four tracks culled for single/EP release were FAN.TAS.TIC. Well done to Virgin Records for picking exactly the right tunes to release. Sometimes the record companydoes get it right. The rest of it just never grabbed me. I think Ed suggested that they didn't take things far enough on the album, it was too restrained.

Restrained? I guess with the exception of Come With Us it is largely less experimental in terms of sound design and structure but that album is all about the groove and the feel of each track. Galaxy Bounce remains one of my all time favourite Chems tracks. Hoops is beautiful. Denmark is funky as anything. Even The State Were In is like the perfect haunted chill out in the middle. I honestly love it all.

This Fred has turned into something deeply wierd.

Quote from: Nils VIP on Aug 26, 2015, 14:32

Come Inside is a weak song compared to some similar tunes on DYOH. They also ruined it by adding the stupid horns halfway. The same goes for Surface to Air, which is an uninspired rip off of TPPR and TSU.
Don't try too hard, bad boy. It makes you look uninspired. We've had some originals on here that did better ;)

Yeah... Sorry.

I own every Girls' Generation album. Again though, not at all embarrassed by it.

Yes. I'll stop talking, right there.

I think we have a winner.

I think because people loved Surrender so much, they thought they get a similar sounding album on the next one.

This is up there. Like, Star Guitar up there.

At the time Ed did however mention that a plus side of the album was that it included Star Guitar.

So are we all agreed now that this is just the 'Come With Us' thread?
I like it. My arguament is: Hoops, Pioneer Skies, The Test. I could list more, but that's all it needs for me to like it.
The devil is in the details

You folks are mad if you consider any Chems album embarrassing   :P
I can hit cheeky lizards if I want!
