It's interesting how Hot Chip have managed to progress into this album with acquiring a fuller more produced sound, but retaining the same eclectic originality of their earlier work. This Album is full of inspiring songs, which combine sometimes moving lyrics with a very inventive sound world with interesting harmonies and altogether a coherent musical journey. I have played this to people who were a little puzzled by Hot Chip's earlier albums which I had played to them over the years, and all commented how fresh this one sounded even though it's more accessible to the more mainstream taste. The best way I can describe it is that it retains the Indie Electronica sound at the same time as widening appeal.

Enthusiastically recommended

I've tried to like Hot Chip for a long time. They've made some of the most infectious pop for the last 10 years. The singles are always a revelation but the albums are always left wanting. That was until One Life Stand came out.

This is the album they've been trying to make for the last few years. A wonderfully put together album in 3 parts. The first four tracks tread familiar ground - The catchy, singalong, perfectly crafted but heartfelt dance-pop tunes which have progressed another step since 'Ready for the floor'. Then things slow down for two tracks and we hear a new side to Hot Chip - The love song - but that's a lot better than it sounds. Then the third part of the album is the real surprise: Some of the best disco since 'I feel love' mixed with some darker minor key sounds along the lines of Meat Beat Manifesto mixed with the brooding but minus the self parody of Nine Inch Nails.

This will be a very strong contender for album of the year 2010.

But yes I love technology. Always and forever!" Napoleon Dynamite's older brother and his band produce a good album of heart on sleeve "loving" electro. Title track is especially good - goose bump inducing in this reviewer. Last two songs are a bit damp mind.

By The Wolf TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 1 Feb. 2010
Format: Audio CD
Hot Chip have one particularly subtle, enduring and
endearing quality. They make electronica with a heart
(and a big warm heart at that!). They achieve this through
good tunes, witty lyrics and the inestimable pathos and
fragility of Alexis Taylor's instantly recognisable voice.

Their fourth studio outing finds them in fine fettle.
'One Life Stand' has a remarkably bright and vivid presence.
The ten songs in this collection deliver the band's best work
so-far. I loved all three of their previous album releases
but there is something distinctive and special about this
one which sets it apart by a mile.

There is an openness and expansiveness in the fresh-faced
production which brings the music to life in an addictive
and affecting way. Take the four-square magic of the title
track as a perfect example of the fusion of a strong melody,
big, danceable beats and the laugh-out-loud charm of the
sweeping, swooping and zooming synthesiser interventions.

Opening track 'Thieves In The Night' contasts the wonderful bump
and grind of the synth and percussion obliggato with Mr Taylor's
preciously vulnerable vocal delivery to stunning effect.
The edgy and slightly dodgy central guitar solo is a hoot!

'Brothers' is an unashamedly new-blokeish examination of the
value of male comradeship. A soppy and risky and rare idea,
brought to life with touchingly unsentimental authenticity.

'Alley Cats' is another enchanting lyrical and musical highlight.
Warm and bubbling and full of summer sunlight. For my money the
loveliest song of the band's time on earth so-far! Truly magical!

Final track 'Take It In', with its shifting patterns
of light and shade and incandescent vocal harmonies
brings the project to a stunning and uplifting close.

Hot Chip tick all the boxes with this little cracker.

Essential.

One of the great pleasure of music is the way something can leap out of nowhere and hook straight into you brain. Watching Later one might with usual low expectations when Hot Chip appeard and played 'I Feel Better' by half way through I was hooked and by the next day had downloaded the album. Weeks later it's still getting regular plays.

Took my a little while to make the connection with the wonderful My Computers Vulnerabilia, Hot Chip don't have their wild eclecticism but make up for that in stronger memorable hooks.

I'm not normally a huge dance / eloctopop fan but once in a while something just hits the spot, and this album does it for me, uplifting yet melancholy - it going to be one of the soundtracks of my summer.

Love the band,
good album,but wa hoping for more of a progression from the last album.
A but tedious at times...unfortunately-but there are some
excellent high lights and worth it just for that.

Having grown up through the emergence of electronica in the late 70s and 80s, after reading all the press coverage about their style of music, when Hot Chip released their first album I immediately bought it. Impressed, yes, but blown away, far from it. This time round the purchase wasn't as immediate, but I bought the new album anyway for two reasons, firstly, I do a lot of driving and listen to a lot of music along the way, and secondly, quite frankly a lot of the music "out there" at the minute leaves me cold. Have to say I was completely surprised at the difference bewteen the two albums, and One Life Stand remained entrenched in the car CD player for the best part of 3 weeks! The variation in tempo and tone of the tracks made me pay more attention to the lyrics, which quite frankly made me chuckle at times, whimsical at others. I love this album - buy it, you won't regret it.
