Review of "Exit Planet Dust - Chemical Brothers (The)"
Forced to change their name from the “Dust Brothers” after threat of a law-suit from the American production team their name paid homage to, the Chemical Brothers released their first album “Exit Planet Dust” in 1995. With most of the UK plunged deep into Brit Pop/Indie Rock scene, this big beat sound being thrashed across the decks of London nightclubs by Ed Simons and Tom Rowlands wasn’t exactly cutting edge, but had a certain aura about it. The album kicks off with the sample “The brothers’ gonna work it out” before the ground-trembling base-line of “Leave Home” starts up, and then we’re off. Possibly the best song, “Dust Up Beats” is up next with the anthem “Song To The Siren” following. The second half of “Exit Planet Dust” is a lot more laid back, with “Life Is Sweet” and “Chico’s Groove” bringing a more ambient feel to the album, topped with a brilliant performance from then, little-known country singer/songwriter Beth Orton. This is definitely one of the albums of the 90’s, one of the must-haves that no CD collection is complete without. If you like the Chemical’s recent material, you’re gonna love this!
