A collection of music videos worth considering.
15 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

First of all, I've been a fan of the chemical brothers' music for a long time. Part of enjoying their supersonic beats and eccentric escapades into weird noises and beautiful harmonies is just half of the experience. The other half I believe are their videos. Each one clearly shows one view of the craziness that the music provokes within one's thoughts. To me, electronica music has always seemed to be a soundtrack to subconscious thinking and mind. I think that the videos explore this quite well. Each one can almost be dream sequence using the song as its guide. The directors were well-chosen, especially the great Michael Gondry. The videos all have commentary and footage of the chemical brothers, directors, and friends. Sometimes quirky and perhaps genius ideas are captured on video when Gondry comes up with an idea to make "Star Guitar" play to the scenery outside of a moving locomotive. Each video is really eccentric, and yes strange, while helping us dig deeper into the music of the chemical brothers. While they might not make sense at times, some creative sound parallels are discovered through capturing the motion of "Star Guitar" with a locomotive, capturing the craziness and insanity of our lives and the early morning rush to work etc. to make a living in "Let Forever Be", and the humor to bitter drama in gymnastic events between athletes in "Elektrobank." I was thoroughly impressed by the collection of videos. All were well done and have lots of little bits of extra fun behind each one (commentaries and such.) The live footage is amazing. It makes you want to get up and dance! These two guys are so talented and the people they chose to make their videos did a good job of showing their view on what the music means or feels to them. Whether some of the videos make sense or not, they are definitely visually stimulating and like a dream, not always have distinct purpose other than to show images based on what emotions they provoke.
