Review by Matt Wimsett, Surge Radio Head of Music (ranked the album #5):

The most complete Hot Chip album to date. This time taking influences from 90’s house and 80’s disco funk, a mixture of short snappy singles such as ‘Night and Day’, 7-minute epics including ‘Flutes’ and my personal highlight ‘These Chains’.

Other accolades:

  • Ranked #9 on The Guardian’s “Best Albums of 2012” list
