The guest vocals by Bernard Sumner, frontman for ’80s electro-popsters New Order, recall the John Hughes era. But the melange the Chemical Brothers surround him with seems prescient: Donna Summer-style Eurodisco, pumping techno, trippy reverb squelches — even a few guitars — clash brilliantly. Sumner brings emotion to the beats, yet it’s the Chemicals’ prismatic mixology that makes “Out of Control” an anthem worthy of the headphones as well as the dance floor.
