The Chemical Brothers

We Are The Night

The Chemical Brothers

6 / 10 Since the turn of the century The Chemical Brothers have plodded along while the world around them became increasingly guitar-shaped. Now, a new generation has become obsessed with the agony and ecstasy of the same rave music the Brothers rose from almost 15 years ago. Lucky then, that new rave’s brightest kids have allowed them to ride their fluoro coat-tails back into relevance on this, their sixth album. ‘All Rights Reversed’, the Chems’ collaboration with Klaxons, saves ‘We Are The Night’ from sounding like it’s still stuck in the mid-’90s and with Willy Mason and Midlake cropping up, Tom and Ed have again found just enough cool mates to save them from a general feeling of naffness.
