Hot Chip's fifth album is the first to be released on the band's new label, Domino, which is also the home of Franz Ferdinand, Arctic Monkeys and The Kills. The self-produced In Our Heads is the follow-up to the critically acclaimed One Life Stand. An album bursting with dynamic floor fillers, euphoric anthems and verbose synth-fuelled love songs, it will also include lead single "Night and Day".

Have seen the band a couple of times and the sound reproduction is perfect,do not ignore this record or band,they are about to take over the world!
Holy sheep! This album is helluv a sonic and lyrical treat not only for die-hard chippers, but also for those coming new to the band. Firstly, to really appreciate what the boys are up to, purchase the best hi fi system you can-include a decent pair of cans too for those times when you might have a Camberwell Carrot to hand. It is also quite important for the first couple of times to listen to the work in the order of its creation before you hit the shuffle button or program your tracks. You see, IOH is a journey, or if you will, a roller coaster ride that makes the most sense with the trail firmly fixed.
The opener, Motion Sickness was conceived surely with a Hollywood Bowl or MSG performance in mind. I can only imagine the crowd going ballistic when the syn-horns blast their way into the auditorium and thence up and away to the stars. Well, perhaps a bit of hyperbole but not excessively so.
Track two is the funky How do you do? Which makes one think that Alexis and Joe might have Afro antecedents--which of course they do; we all do. Yep, it's funky all right.
Don't Deny Your Heart comes next which has three (at least) different sections, all of which are great and ends with a spectacular percussion jam.
At four we have the wonderful, gentle and life-affirming Look At Where We Are. Listen yourself.
These Chains is another chance to swa' and dance to in your PJs or what-have-you.
At the half way now and Night and Day (probably the most commercial tune on here and great for the youngsters--in Aye Napa or Annapolis or Algiers, it don't matter. It's also where we find the neologism: swa'.
Flutes. Well, what to say about this? I'm reminded of John Cale's verdict on Venus in Furs: there was no tune like that before or since. The same with this one with its Buddhist chants and crowd noise sampled for the first minute and half (great for the chaps and chappette on stage to get a bit of a breather) then into the remaining five odd minutes of mind-blowing dance-floor euphoria. It would make the most melancholic person elated, or, as George Carlin might say: `more than happy'.
Now There Is Nothing follows, and since Flutes is such a hard act to follow, is somewhat of a disappointment, but hey, the listener needs a breather too and I'm pretty sure this one is grower.
Ends of the Earth is not bad--which in HC territory, is pretty damn good.
We now come to the penultimate track which is, to my mind, up there with the very best that HC have given us over the last ten years(!) with the added bonus of having a join-in refrain of OH-OH-OH-OHs popping up a couple of times and the priceless line: Work hard; play hard at work. Lend me your ideas--but not too fully formed. Sheer genius.
The journey ends (or with your remote, begins) with Always Been Your Love. One for anniversaries, intimate dinner parties and such good times. Personally, I can't wait for album six. Perhaps they'll call it Out of Our Heads.
