For all of Hot Chip’s emotionally deep lyricism, they’re a dance band, too, and they can bring a tear to your eye just as well as they can make you throw down some moves on the club floor.
It’s that precise balance which becomes the key component to the success of their fifth studio outing, In Our Heads. Right from the get-go this sounds like a party: along with copping the riff from “Another Brick in the Wall”, opening cut “Motion Sickness” blares declaratory horns, signifying a grandeur that pervades the following ten songs.
Fortunately, “Motion Sickness” does no disservice to In Our Heads. This is an immensely fun recording, full of all the exuberance, wit, and heart we’ve come to expect from Hot Chip. In Our Heads could be the best thing we’ve heard from them. — PopMatters
