Following their previous funk and pop escapades, Come with us marks the return of Chemical Brothers to the pure and hard techno of their beginnings in which the influence of other groups from the electronic scene is nonetheless apparent.

An 80's pioneer, Depeche Mode has successfully reinvented itself and increased its credibility in the 90's, while fellow bands such as Simple Minds or The Cure have slowly fallen into the murky depth of memory. The Basildon Four offer a sort of legacy with this singles album.
