The Chemical Brothers' second album is likely to please a number of electric tastes. It seldom rises above a good beat, but then it doesn't need to.
All this started as three friends talking about music, and it remains just that - a shared exploration, which we now want to share with you.
What The Fat of the Land lacks in diversity, it makes up for in consistency: pulsating basslines and thrilling beats, delivered with trademark Prodigy grit.
The album makes for hypnotic listening, bobbling along like a well-mannered German robot. All these years later it still sounds like the future.
