    Clap your hands and move your feet to the amazing beat. Hot Hot Heat is back and better than before.

    Immaculate! Happiness Ltd. is far more mature and unique than anything out right now.

    Is the album good? Yes. Is it Hot Hot Heat good? No. They sound more like The Killers, than a band with a lead singer who jumps about the lyrics at such a fun and fast pace that it is sometimes hard to understand what is being sung. Sadly, in this album I understand all the words.

    This album is good. It may not be Hot Hot Heat good but I think fans will enjoy this album. Vocals are roughly the same and I don't think it's justified that because they have changed sounds they should receive a bad grade despite this album being decent. Still very catchy stuff.

  1. The result is a muddled album that gets even farther away from Hot Hot Heat's former glory even as it tries to recapture it.

    It's still a blast to listen to Hot Hot Heat when they sound like they're having fun, even if they have to fake it. [Sep/Oct 2007, p.169]
  3. The disco-rock jitters come back soon enough with the next selection, 'Let Me In,' but there's no denying that the group's horizons have broadened. For every throwback Cure sound-alike, such as 'Give Up?,' there's a lush retort featuring the Abbey Road Orchestra-like 'Outta Heart.'
