In Our Heads is proof that Hot Chip are succeeding on their consistently impressive musical journey, and as far as I can see there’s still much to be learned from these songwriters.
It is the best album start-to-finish from Hot Chip, one that continues to show their deft range - from infectious disco hits to soulful ballads.
It's a meditation on positivity, a hedonistic joyride that isn't afraid to get deep, and a reminder that any band-- any album, any song-- can be your life, even for just a moment.
In Our Heads, arguably their most consistent record to date, is certainly their most fun.
On In Our Heads, they demand absolute attention and don’t overstay their welcome, thanks in part to the polished production.
Like any good evening out, the fun level varies, and at times it gets a little too blurry for good measure
In Our Heads‘ last third lets down what would otherwise be Hot Chip’s best effort to date.
Brimming with dense beats polished to a sheen that dulls the group’s sharpest edges, it’s Hot Chip’s pop-friendliest effort so far.
Wittily crafted tunes replaced with something guileless, as if Britain’s smartest pop group forget how to think.
