Top 50 Tracks of 2010: Chemical Brothers – K+D+BNovember 17, 2010
46. Chemical Brothers – K+D+B.
In which the Chemical Brothers get back to the business of making music they like, rather than making music they think others will like, resulting in their best album since 1999’s Surrender. A decade-long run of pop chart chasing almost made me give this one a pass, figuring I was in for more salmon dancing and other such bland electronica.
But the Brothers redeem themselves with drums, drums and more drums, building to a percussive dreampop climax, reaching the heights of the sole lyrical interjection: “Higher.”
