In this sea of too many faceless indie-pop-rock.electro - etc. bands, chairlift album is a real refreshment. A true quality synth pop, with awesome vocal abilities of lead singer, and excellent production.
This is the album that you will be playing for years, not just another one temporary pleasure.

These guys are just great. A massive improvement if we compare "Something" to the previous album, "Does you inspire you". I don't give 5 stars because in my opinion the last tracks are not as good as the first, but that's it.. Caroline Polacheck is extremely talented, and so is the other guy. Bass lines, fab. Lots of synth, catchy vintage tunes. They stand out of the hupster crowd.

The have been A LOT of electro/synth based 'indie' albums as of late and it's becoming harder and harder to stand out and whilst the have been plenty of good ones not many stand out as a true quality synth pop album. Enter Chairlift and their stunning album 'Something' which hits the synth pop nail directly in the head with such permission that it is currently incredibly concussed in the corner of my room. Now it's taken me a long time to get to a review of this album but that was because I wanted to see if the giddy feeling I was getting from this album would ever wear off, which is so frequently the case with similar albums, but here I am 2 weeks and 15 listens later and I still absolutely adore the beast. Some of the best pop I've heard in a long long long time with fantastic vocals, interesting yet familiar music and insanely strong hooks, it's very hard to fault this album other then it perhaps sounds a bit too situated in it's 80s roots? I don't think that at all though so to hell with you, this album is one of the best I've heard in recent years period with only Anais Mitchells 'Hadestown' topping it in the last couple of years imho.... it's not ground breaking it's just the sort of album I apparently fall in love with & that's okay with me.

This is for those who are considering this having enjoyed Chairlift's earlier work, whether it be the eclectic pop soundings of 'Does You Inspire You' or the more down-beat 'Daylight Savings'. Chairlift's sound is not for everyone - the cheesy lyrics and keyboard work on 'Something' often seems to have come right out of the eighties, and if you're sick of all the synth-pop bandwaggoning by today's chart musicians, this might strike you as just 'more of the same'. But for fans, this is a real treat - not only because the tracks are stronger, but principally because this is a significantly more coherent album than their previous works. The thumping pop tunes are still there - 'Amanaemonesia' in particular is the sort of can't get-it-out-of-your-head-but-for-good-reasons track which Chairlift do so well. Does You Inspire and their debut EP tended to oscillate between cheesy pop one minute and haunted-house-inspired downtempo the next, as if the band were thinking aloud what they wanted to be without any concern for whether the album would be easy to listen to. This time, every song is strong and although there are transitions between guitar-driven rock-pop and more electronic fare, the whole album flows much better. In short, I'd be hard-pressed to find a previous Chairlift song which would fit better on this album than what you are actually getting with 'Something'. As with all albums, it's not perfect, but if you had even the slightest smile from listening to earlier Chairlift, then 'Something' is a seriously necessary addition to you playlist.

Format: Audio CD
Here's a bit of slick electro-pop from Brooklyn which manages to avoid
many of that fertile borough's arty excesses. Having survived a break-up
singer Caroline Polachek and instrumentalist/producer Patrick Wimberly,
still recording as Chairlift, have got a winner on their hands with 'Something'.
Ms Polachek has a quirky voice, given to whoops and swoops and even a spot of
yodeling here and there; she also knows more than a little about crafting a
good song. By turns Mr Wimberly's arrangements are intelligent and richly detailed.

There are eleven numbers in the set and they all stand up to close scrutiny.
The odd nod and wink to the eighties is not over-laboured and when it comes
to an ear for a memorable hook this talented duo have got it in spades. Take a
track like 'Take It Out On Me' : in not much more than three minutes we are
carried along on a bubbling wave of naive synth melody into the heart of the
kind of solid chorus which takes a light touch to bring off (it's a tad
like Gwen Stefani's 'Cool' without the chugga-chugg guitar). 'I Belong To
You' romps along at a fair old piece sporting a cracking high-flung vocal
from Ms Polachek and a riot of uplifting percussion and lithe harmonies.
The gentle quasi-Latin beats of 'Cool As A Fire' brings the tempo down to
frame one of the album's loveliest tunes and a truly enchanting vocal turn.
'Wrong Opinion', however, gets my vote for top track; its nifty chromatic,
rhythmic and textural shifts supporting Ms Polachek's finest performance.

A refreshing reinvention of a cracking act who deserve to go the full distance.

Recommended.
