The Chemical Brothers – Further

The Chemical Brothers have a new album out – Further.

Further is available now in standard format, but also in a Deluxe edition that includes an audio/visual DVD album.

Here’s the official description:

The Chemical Brothers return with their most ambitious project yet, a full-on 51 minute audio/visual experience with cutting edge visuals tailored to the eight epic tracks (available on the CD/DVD edition).

The culmination of nearly two decades of psychedelic exploration, Further is a record that ebbs and flows like the band’s legendary live shows, an immersive collection that finds The Chemical Brothers at their most unrestrained and melodic best. Here, West Coast power pop harmonies sit beside German Motorik rhythms while My Bloody Valentine-esque sonic manipulations plane across the top of early house basslines. Step futher into the future with The Chemical Brothers.

On the other hand, here’s one of the first Amazon customer reviews of the DVD:

Bluntly put. the DVD aspect does not justify the price. Not only are the visuals not on par with any of their standard music videos but, they are not even fun to watch in a “so bad it’s good” kind of way.

A summary of the DVD is the girl on the cover dives into the ocean, then there are a bunch of dots dancing around for a long time, then the girls shadow is walking with dots and a generic psychedelic backdrop. Then, a horse is made of paper machete, some green slime pulsates and the girl comes out of the water.

Here’s an video preview for Further:

  1. I bought the deluxe edition and been charmed by the psychedelic videos. Music is also wonderful, back to their origins, without pop songs and hip hops. Their style I prefer. It's Chemicals "Dark Side of the Moon".

  2. is it just me, or the bass is a little weak in this album? example, escape velocity is an awesome song, but when the song is getting very pumped, and the pitch is increasing, it seems they suddenly lower the bass, instead of pumping it up!
