Some groups you keep coming back to, and some of their albums are like touchstones to your life's memories. But sometimes the music is so good that sentiment is only a small part of the reason you like a record. I loved The Chemical Brothers from their first album, 1995's Exit Planet Dust. Their music is exciting, smart, danceable, very very groovy.
But of their bunch I think 1999's Surrender & 2002's Come With Us hold a special place for me. It's like they invented this corner where electronica, folk, rock, & groovy weirdness met, & then they made a whole lot of fucking awesome music at this corner.
It's a two-hour show, ends with a nod to da boss, who seems to let me get away with whatever indulgence I want. But, man! It's the Chems! They're fantastic! :)
