Celebrating 10 years of innovative electronica and party-starting dance grooves, this 13-track Chemical Brothers collection moves chronologically through the numerous highlights of the duo's recording career. Groundbreaking early singles "Song to the Siren" and "Chemical Beats" offer the first examples of their unique combination of hip-hop beats and electro-distortion hooks, before "Leave Home" ushers in the arrival of the landmark EXIT PLANET DUST album. Although SINGLES surprisingly omits "Life Is Sweet (with Tim Burgess of the Charlatans UK) and "Alive Alone" (featuring a then-unknown Beth Orton), it does includes other excellent tracks such as "Setting Sun" (one of two Noel Gallagher collaborations), "Block Rockin' Beats," "The Private Psychedelic Reel" (with Jonathan Donahue of Mercury Rev), and "The Test" (featuring Richard Ashcroft). And as outstanding icing on their birthday cake, Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons present two previously unreleased tracks, the funky "Get Yourself High," and the mystic, majestic chime of "The Golden Path" (featuring the Flaming Lips).
