Danceable emotional pop. Very well crafted. Still I feel it's dated but it hit me at the time.

The music is witty, poppy and danceable. Hot chip bring their own style with these immediately-infectious tunes. i had a good inclination this new album would blow that one away upon hearing lead single "ready for the floor", which just builds with brilliance. "one pure thought" was my other top favorite of theirs with its false-slow-build and shuffling beat. Nice backing vocals. "shake a fist" is a powerful pissed off pop rant featuring grungy synths with a bridge that reminds me of 90s techno gem "two little boys" with some arcade FX to boot.
