  1. They turn in their best album since 1996 even though some schmuck from the Charlatans ruins track two.

    It's the album on which the Chems relax into a comfortable maturity, secure in their status as elder statesmen. [Feb 2005, p.87]
  3. 80
    Comes as an especially welcome jolt after their last wishy-washy effort. [Mar 2005, p.110]
  4. An album that covers a lot of ground without ever tilling it.
  5. While there aren't as many heart-stopping productions as on 2002's unjustly neglected Come With Us, Push the Button proves the Chemical Brothers have retained the innate curiosity necessary to keep them blazing trails for years to come.
  6. Other than a few impressive moments... Push the Button proves less than inspiring.
  7. It's like they've just put all their old sounds together in a slightly different order. [Feb 2005, p.101]

    Best money ever invested in my life, ive listened to it thousands of times and still enjoy it, still find new sounds. All the album is great. Listening to Marvo Ging and then Surface to Air is happiness. Expand

    One of my most played albums on my iPod and I never get tired of it. Galvanize is probably one of my favourite songs and it's definitely the best track on the album. I also love the ambient style of most of the tracks. Good album, definitely buy it if you're into electronica. Expand
