Limited two CD edition includes a bonus CD containing an additional seven tracks. 2003 collection from the British Electronic/Dance duo.
To remain relevant after a decade in the music industry is rare indeed; for a dance act, it's virtually unique. "i"Singles 93-03 ably demonstrates how the Chemical Brothers have managed it. Having first carved a reputation as DJs the Dust Brothers in the early 1990s, the two history graduates narrowly avoided calling themselves the London Dust Explosion before spearheading big beat, becoming a huge live draw, collaborating with Noel Gallagher and having Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis play "Hey Boy, Hey Girl" at his wedding. It's been 10 years of fun, frolics, and gigantean left-field beats for Ed Simmons and Tom Rowland and, as this faultless singles collection testifies, continual reinvention.
From the seething siren, pounding breaks, breathy vocals and spellbinding post-acid electronica of album opener "Song to the Siren" to the ingenious collaboration with the Flaming Lips, "The Golden Path," Tom 'n' Ed have somehow managed to carve tracks that appeal equally to radio, clubs, and the live arena. Alongside the cement-cracking bass of "Leave Home" and "Block Rockin' Beats" comes the high-inducing sonic debauchery of "The Private Psychedelic Reel" and dancefloor filler "Star Guitar," to name but a few of the many highlights. Ingenious, boundary-baffling stuff, this compilation offers a hypnotic historical tour of one of the most creative careers in dance music. --Christopher Barrett
Ordinary logic tells us that if you've supported a band's career by buying their albums, there's no real reason to fork out two tenners for their greatest-hits package. At its heart, that's essentially what Singles 93-03 is, but the Chemical Brothers were never ordinary so you can expect a few bonuses for your buck. For the 10-year anniversary disc, they've packed in some of their greatest and most beloved hits: debut single "Song to the Siren," the Noel "Oasis" Gallagher-fronted "Setting Sun," the forever-familiar bass line of "Block Rockin' Beats" and the well-worn classic groove of "Hey Boy Hey Girl." What distinguishes this comp from one you can compile and burn yourself are two new tracks, which the band has said signify a "new phase" in their career: the beautiful and psychedelically spacey "The Golden Path" (featuring the Flaming Lips) and the rough-and-ready "Get Yourself High" (featuring Canadian rapper K-Os). If you get the package early, it comes with a bonus disc of B-sides and remixes you may never have heard, such as the rather un-Chems "The Duke," which barely hints at their trademark sound. Altogether, Singles is a nice reminder of where they've come from and a good road map for what is to come.
