Product Notes

One can never accuse the Chemical Brothers of consistency. We Are the Night continues their eclectic electronica approach even though the big-beat groove of the title track remains their digital calling card. Spotted with a minimalist keyboard pattern, vocal non sequiturs, and sampled sound effects, the infectious groove of "We Are the Night" eventually evolves into the monotone-chanted dance chorus of "We are the night skies/We are the bright lies," recalling Brian Eno circa Here Come the Warm Jets. However, for every catchy electro-dance, there''s a tune that leaves you scratching your head. What to make of the novelty song "The Salmon Dance" is anybody''s guess, though you might find some illumination in a salmon recipe on their Web site. With fractured nursery-rhyme lyrics that are sung like an off-color Sesame Street rap, it will drive you up the wall--or at least toward the skip button. Then there''s Midlake singing the trancey ballad "The Pills Won''t Help You Now," making the Chemical Brothers sound like a sci-fi version of Coldplay. Retro-analog synthesizers dominate, with the electro-grooves of "Das Spiegel," "Burst Generator," and "Saturate," which builds on a Kraftwerk-forged metal framework coupled with storming sampled drums. The circuits of ''70s techno-pop artist the Normal are re-soldered on "Do It Again." With Ali Love singing the title-track chorus, it''s built to be a summertime anthem akin to Tag Team''s "Whoomp! (There It Is)," albeit robotically chilled. --John Diliberto
