    An impressive balancing act that name-checks Ween and cracks wise about Stevie Wonder's vision while spinning bighearted melodies and harmonies over quirky beatscapes. [Jan 2005, p.89]

    Restlessly inventive, Hot Chip also manage what many bedroom eclectics don't: crafting a genuinely organic, proper album, and the relaxed enthusiasm that drives this debut is absurdly infectious. [Jun 2004, p.94]
  3. Their songs are infectious, silly and often weirdly beautiful.

    One of the better albums to come out in 05. Takes awhile to grow on you but...the end result is something amazing and unique. Excellent album!
