The Chemical Brothers - Further

The Chemical Brother's new album builds of the strengths of 2007's 'We Are The Night'.

No guest vocalists. Swirling electronica. Staggering build-ups. Beautiful soundscapes.

Gone are the days of big-beat breakdowns. This is a maturing and beautifully able band pushing forwards. This is electronica for those with discerning palettes.

Great stuff.

Deftones - Diamond Eyes

Even without their severely injured bassist Chi Cheng Deftones have returned with a stonking album.

This is almost a culmination of their art - marrying the ferocity of Adrenaline and Around The Fur with the more experimental and electronic White Pony and Saturday Night Wrist.

All of the songs are beautiful in their layered texture and aching vocals. This cannot easily be expressed in words. It is Deftones to the max.
