Music Review: The Chemical Brothers ‘For That Beautiful Feeling Is Dreamy Electronic Music

“For That Beautiful Feeling,” The Chemical Brothers (Republic Records)

If possible, remember the 90s: when rock bands lost popularity and electronic music dominated . While techno and acid house dominated the dance floor, the Chemical Brothers were already pioneers of the big beat genre. This spirit continues on the British duo's tenth studio album, For That Beautiful Feeling.

“Hey Girl Hey Boy” and “Galvanize” by Tom Rowlands and Ed Simmons lit up the radio waves at the time. While EDM has come and gone - to this reporter's ears, slowly evolving as a genre and easy listening as a cultural label - the Chemical Brothers' innovative music has never waned. There are even less obvious melodies and harmonies on “For That Beautiful Feeling”; They haven’t lost “that” reason.

The 11-track album has a dreamy, otherworldly atmosphere that perfectly reflects its title. Recorded in their studio on the coast of England, you can feel the music beneath your shoulders. It's the constant shock of your favorite Chemical Brothers tracks and the angelic vocals of Hello artist Maude that can be heard in two tracks : "Live Again", a coherent study of hypnosis taken from the album.

Elsewhere, a track like “The Wait” sounds like a classic police chase, while “Waterfall” is the musical embodiment of that tough, leather jacket, dancefloor type. “Jump Like a Stone” marks the band’s second collaboration with alt-rock favorite Beck since 2015’s “Wide Open.”

Together, the varied and entertaining songs create a beach market that will have you confidently dreaming of the beach under the sun.
