The Chemical Brothers have released ‘For That Beautiful Feeling’ today – revisit Live4ever’s review and stream the album below.
“Perennial festival headliners, The Chemical Brothers have been at the top of their game for nearly three decades but, despite this album now putting their catalogue into double figures, the duo never rest on their laurels.”
“Their music is largely designed for euphoric nights, complete with comedowns, and For That Beautiful Feeling starts as such: opening track (Intro – see what they did there?) drops us straight in, like we’ve just popped our heads round the door on a party night that is in full flow, with wonky beats that segues into single Live Again.”
“The muscular track crashes in on a wave of electronics and beautiful Balearic sci-fi sonics, with Halo Maud (French psyche-pop singer and the album’s main collaborator) adding dreamy – if slightly repetitive – looped vocals and a deftness of touch. The swirling No Reason follows, all sultry bassline and snapping percussion. So far, so banging.”
