Chromeo still won’t win any points for originally or distinctiveness; like its predecessors, Business Casual is thoroughly disinterested in inundating its listeners with anything not already a club hit between 1981 and 1986.


Business Casual, Chromeo's third full-length, cements them as true scholars of squelchy chart pop.

Drowned in Sound

Album three in Chromeo’s discography, it sees a return to the Eighties electro funk upon which they made their names, albeit stripped down slightly.

This album has some of the absolute best production I've heard in a while, and is generally an interesting listen full of swagger and style. Thanks again to my great girlfriend @Ava_Rose, for giving me loads of music to keep me company through a vacation.
Best track: Grow Up

Worst track: J'ai claque la porte
disco sucks
Never was the largest Chromeo fan. They seem to always want to create similar sounds across every album and every track that usually bore me. They are obsessed with mid-80's dance music and they can't seem to stray from it. This album is no exception but compared to Fancy Footwork their is something on this album that keeps me enticed the entire listen through, and by the end of the album enjoying the cliche 80s pop dance vibe.
