Chemical Brothers New Album: What the Critics Are Saying


The new Chemical Brothers album, Born in the Echoes, is garnering big praise from fans and critics. Here’s what some of the tastemakers are saying:

Born In The Echoes is a bold reinvention of the Chemical Brothers’ sound, pushing the late-period renaissance that ‘Further’ heralded to somewhere dark and twisted.” – NME

Born In The Echoes piles back into their trademark collision of motorik electronics and report-to-the-dancefloor beats with a vulnerable, dislocated humanity. There are bangers aplenty” – MOJO

“Enormous festival fillers and hard-nosed club bangers rub up against wondrously bizarre studio experiments and some of the best pure pop songs Rowlands and Simons have ever made.” – Pitchfork

“Despite its title, this is no faint echo of past glories. It’s a resounding eclat of new-found enthusiasm and creative ingenuity. Indispensable.” – The Saturday Paper

Born in the Echoes is gloriously disorienting, restoring a woozy mania to a genre in danger of self-combusting in search of ever more euphoric pop highs.” – The Telegraph

Born in the Echoes is an iron-clad musical statement from one of dance music’s most enduring exports. Today’s EDM poster children can have the limelight, but they can only hope to sound this relevant and current 20 years down the road.” – Consequence Of Sound
