EDITORS’ NOTES

The Chemical Brothers’ debut album broke big in the duo’s native England, but with the 1997 follow-up, Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons became the first electronic act to achieve full-fledged stardom in the U.S. Without abandoning the big-beat sound they’d already become known for, the Chems expanded their breakbeat-based template to include psychedelic rock, with the help of vocalists Beth Orton and Noel Gallagher, some carefully curated ‘60s samples and a heady heap of tripped-out textures.
