  1. Probably the most exquisitely integrated single listening experience the Chemical Brothers have yet come up with.
  2. 80
    The Brothers prove they can still poleaxe a dancefloor with a well-aimed barrage of strobe-ing electro-house.
  3. Rather than play catch-up, the Chems are accentuating the difference, digging deeper into melody instead of piling on the noise.
  4. We Are The Night feels bloated and ornate amongst the elegant functionalism of post-millennial club music.
  5. While you may know what you're getting with a Chemical Brothers album, they remain damn good at what they do.... You get the impression that their next album may have to be a bit more adventurous if they're to survive.
  6. 'All Rights Reversed', the Chems' collaboration with Klaxons, saves 'We Are The Night' from sounding like it's still stuck in the mid-'90s and with Willy Mason and Midlake cropping up, Tom and Ed have again found just enough cool mates to save them from a general feeling of naffness.
  7. We Are the Night isn’t awful, but you can hear the rigidity of its formula, like the motorik title tune that burps up its eponymy every few seconds along a signless, moody highway.

    I adore this abum, one of my favourite by the Chem brothers. It sounds much like their older albums which I like and their collaboration withI adore this abum, one of my favourite by the Chem brothers.

    The Chems treading water is still miles better than most other dance act efforts at their best in 2007.

    weak. after being let down by the repetitive Beastie's "Mix-Up" and then hoping for salvation with the Chem's, I'll stick to weak. after being let down by the repetitive Beastie's "Mix-Up" and then hoping for salvation with the Chem's, I'll stick to Limewire and give up iTunes for good. Expand
