Bruised humanity 
Ian Gittins reviews The Chemical Brothers at The Roundhouse in London in today's Guardian.

Sounds like a great gig but worthy of particular highlight is the description of "turn-of-the-millennium hit" 'Out of Control' (originally featuring Bernard Sumner on lead vocals" as "a menacing throb punctuated by hand-grenade samples".

And also that "They stray into New Order's Temptation, but in truth the Chemical Brothers lack that band's bruised humanity and vulnerability: these are robust sonic squiggles drawn by a great clunking fist."
