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.
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.
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.
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.
