Chemical Brothers - DON"T THINK CD/DVD

From the press release...

"For nearly two decades, the Chemical Brothers audiovisual live show has played to packed clubs and festivals across the globe, but it has never been captured on film until now.  Originally filmed in 2011, at the iconic Fuji Rock Festival in Japan, this event captures the synesthetic barrage of sound, film and light and the transforming effect it has on its audience. Directed by Adam Smith, the band's long-time visual collaborator and produced with 20 cameras at Japan's Fujirock Festival in July 2011 in front of 50,000 dedicated fans, this event marks the first time the duo's full live experience has been captured for audiences."

I have been lucky enough to see the Chemical brothers multiple times in the 37 years I have been on this planet. I have seen them in large clubs like BUZZ at the Capitol Ballroom in Washington D.C. (at least 3 times over several years) as well as smaller, intimate clubs like Centro Fly in New York (for a special show in November 2001, right after 9/11). Regardless of the venue or the crowd size, the Chemical brothers always bring an intensity to their live performances and the concert film "Don't Think" is able to capture this in a way I was not expecting. One of the most interesting and amazing things I found with this performance is the way that they effortlessly weave in and out of the songs, mixing up the vocals and other parts, taking the tracks you love and creating a new and fresh experience.

I haven't been clubbing in a few years (for many reasons) and this film took me right back to  my clubbing days and made me remember what I loved about going clubbing in the first place. Between the amazing performance from the brothers themselves, the visuals and the camera placement in the sea of faithful fans....you are transported and thrown right into the heart of a wonderful, mind altering and cathartic experience.

In their track 'Believe' the Chemical Brothers say "I need you to believe in something". Well, after you watch this movie....you will. You will believe in the Chemical Brothers and their ability to make music that triggers some kind of response (see what I did there?).

This is hands down the best Electronic concert film I have ever seen. The Chemical Brothers are getting better with age and if this and their soundtrack to last years film "Hanna" are anything to go by, there is a lot more to come from the Chemical Brothers.

Check out the trailer for yourself.
