This album, and this band, was introduced to me by a then-girlfriend who loved the sexy, hedonistic joyride that is listening to these songs. What I appreciate most, though, is that listening to Hot Chip--and even dancing myself sweaty to Hot Chip--there is much more going on than mere mindless electronic escapism. Here Alexis Taylor, Joe Goddard, and company imbue their positivity with an almost spiritual significance, as on the fantastic dance anthem "Flutes," where they remind us, "One day you might realize / That you might need to open your eyes." And when I do, I'll understand how much there is to celebrate.

From Mophos
Half of the record is kick ass, the rest of the songs are just fillers. Too bad, this could have been one of my favourite in 2012 otherwise.

An enjoyable album, from one of the best electropop/dance-punk bands of the 2000's. Some of their songs are irresistible.

Hot chip is back experimenting with their sound a bit to varied results. I love their extended jam "flutes" and like the added female vocals on a couple tracks, but some experimentation seems to extend outside their comfort zone a bit. It's not to a detrimental effect though. I like the female vocals. I like the out-front guitar on "". I like the additional backing chant vocal on "let me be him". I like the Midi Rain FX in "these chains". I guess it feels like this album could've used a little more studio play to refine all of these elements before release. Not on par with their last 2 stellar albums (both in their year's top 2), but on par with "the warning" and stylistically diverse (for dance music) like "made in the dark". Keyword = growth. This album further cements their status as one of my top 5 favorite current artists (along with radiohead, the decemberists, kanye west and the arcade fire) and is yet another sh|t-hot album (although i prefer "one life stand" and "made in the dark").
