The highest-profile tracks set the tenor for the disc as a whole. "Galvanize," which juxtaposes a vocal by Q-Tip with an Eastern-sounding string sample, is interesting but not quite, er, galvanizing, while "The Boxer," sung by Charlatans UK leader Tim Burgess, suggests a minor update on the early-'90s Mancunian sound; earth-shattering, it's not. Several of the other cuts are more enjoyable, particularly the convincingly ecstatic "Believe" and "The Big Jump," whose arrangement hops around like a punch-drunk kangaroo. Yet even the disc's best material lacks the spark of innovation that once characterized the typical reaction to the Chemicals. Rowlands and Simons need to start pushing some different buttons.
