The Chemical Brothers is yet another group where I’ve heard a few songs of theirs but never bothered to check out their discography. This is their debut record, and it’s pretty damn good.

Right away, this album starts with a big bang in the form of Leave Home, one of the best electronic songs of all time. I first heard this song in a PS2 snowboarding game, and I loved it first listen, and I still love it to this day.

The Chemical Brothers debut hit that sweet spot in my electronic heart.

The Chemical Brothers are a group that I have heard around in the electronic scenes here and there but have never heard any of their albums except for "Galvanize" and "Go!"

Now going into their debut, I know it was gonna be a bit more simpler and what I got was true but wow these tracks so amazing and fun for an electronic album released ... read more


Not a bad debut. The beats are great, the production is fantastic and the album flows pretty well. "Exit Planet Dust" shows how much potential the brothers' big beat sound has for the dance scene.

Fav Tracks: One Too Many Mornings, Life Is Sweet, In Dust We Trust, Leave Home, Playground For A Wedgeless Firm, Chico's Groove, Alive Alone

Least Fav Track: Fuck Up Beats



Iconic album that pioneered the big beat movement. I had a lot of fun listening to this album. There weren’t a lot of moments that impacted me, but it was really enjoyable the whole way through with no skips.

FAVORITE TRACKS: Leave home, song to the siren, three little birdies down beats, One too many mornings, and Alive Alone


Great album. I personally believe that it pioneered the Big Beat genre, but I feel like The Chemical Brothers somehow couldn't be the face figures of this movement as much as Fatboy Slim and The Prodigy became, and that's a shame.


A trailblazer, but doesn't quite live up to the albums in the genre that would go on to really push the genre into its peak.
