4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a listen
Making a mix album when there's 5 of you must be a real pain, who gets to choose the most tunes? what order do the tunes go in? are you allowed to disagree with any one elses choices?

Either way, Hot Chip have succeded where i would probably of failed and made a good ecclectic mix tape. The choice of tunes ranges from full on techno to early rhythm and blues,...

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit underwhelming
This one starts quite well, but soon meanders off and becomes fairly forgettable. The first track, Night Moves, brings you in nice and slow, then POW! Positive K with I Got A Man gets your hips and shoulders working. After that some enjoyable electronic noodling, which then lasts the rest of the album. It gets to the point I can't tell one tune from the next. Aside from...

This review is from: hot chip - dj kicks (Audio CD)
This one starts quite well, but soon meanders off and becomes fairly forgettable. The first track, Night Moves, brings you in nice and slow, then POW! Positive K with I Got A Man gets your hips and shoulders working. After that some enjoyable electronic noodling, which then lasts the rest of the album. It gets to the point I can't tell one tune from the next. Aside from the first 3 or 4 tracks, there doesn't feel like there is any direction in this mix, any energy, any variety. Don't get me wrong, there is track after track of great, great tunes, but considering how good Hot Chip are at creating fun, energetic and enjoyable music, this album is surprisingly flat.

Either way, Hot Chip have succeded where i would probably of failed and made a good ecclectic mix tape. The choice of tunes ranges from full on techno to early rhythm and blues, and its not so much mixed as songs put back to back, but dont let this put you off, it flows well (for the most part) and has introduced me to some new music and that is never a bad thing.

Stand out track for me was Hot Chips own tune "My Piano" a classic example of what makes them so good. Conclusion: If you like Hot Chip you'll like this

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Mix of the Year, 4 Oct 2007
This review is from: hot chip - dj kicks (Audio CD)
This mix CD takes in such a variety of styles, but never loses it edge. The opening 'Night Moves' is a real gem, as is Hot Chip's own 'My Piano'. Also of note are tracks from Gabriel Ananda and Noze's 'Love Affair'. This mix showcases why the next Hot Chip album will kick ass. I slightly disagree with the below comment about the mixing, I think it is mixed reasonably well throughout, with only a few occasions were the tracks are started from scratch or merely blended in.
5 starts from me.
