I got myself a copy of The Chemical Brothers‘
latest album, Come With Us the other day. Tom Rowlands and
Ed Simons have done it again. It continues from where their last effort,
left off. The whole album is brimming with swirling, squiggly sounds
backed by pulsating, throbbing beats that wouldn’t go wrong at any
rave. They did try to infuse some new elements in this outing. Witness
the percussion work in the midst of It Began In Africa. Turntable
tricks are also aplenty throughout the album. After listening to it
several times though, I found it lacking the gritty and grungy properties
from their Dig Your Own Hole
album. Nonetheless, it’s still a very good album. I’d give it an 8.5/10.
Met up with some of my friends from Purdue for dinner this evening.
They later went karaoke-ing and I went along just for the heck of it.
Heh! At least I know I can carry Man Bai‘s Kau Ilhamku
