"Approaching their sixth album, the Chemical Brothers may have felt like James Murphy did on LCD Soundsystem's Losing My Edge - that "the kids" are coming up from behind. With young pups Justice and Digitalism currently white-hot in dance circles, Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons have a lot to prove if they are to live up to what their album title claims. They do so brilliantly on Do It Again, a subterranean romp with east-London hipster Ali Love questioning his hedonistic pursuits; and the Klaxons hint that there will be life after rave as the new Blur on All Rights Reversed. On an album already steeped in psychedelia, it seems a given that The Pills Won't Help You Now will be about a bad batch of ecstasy; this Midlake collaboration is emotionally taut and heartfelt. With their reputations at stake, the Chems have conjured their most brilliant work since 1999's Surrender. Losing their edge? Not a bit of it." [source]
