Chemical Brothers: Push the Button
But now with the release of Push the Button, the Chems again push ahead of the pack so much in fact, they got Q-Tip to sing on their funky, Middle Eastern-tinged single, Galvanize. But they didnt stop there. They got Tim Burgess, former front man for the Charlatans, to add vocals to the ultra-sexy The Boxer. And then in an oh-my-god-are-you-kidding-me move, Kele Okereke from the much buzzed about UK post-punkers Bloc Party joins the fun on Believe. Overall, they softened their sometimes-obnoxious computer loops, went back to their old school hip-hop and funkified roots and came out with a straight-up party album, with an obvious exception: the angelic Close Your Eyes, which adds the right touch of sweetness to balance things out.
