This new, rather brief Chemical Brothers album (weighing in at only eight tracks) is the first by the duo to arrive hand-in-hand with an accompanying compendium of short films. It’s also their first release to feature next to no collaborations, save for one floaty vocal from Stephanie Dosen on opener Snow. The lack of star guests might prove a barrier for casual fans, but there’s great stuff here, towering 12-minute single Escape Velocity included.
