    ["Night and Day" and "Flutes"] are glimmers of liveliness on an otherwise decedent record.

    In Our Heads seems acutely lacking in personality, meaning or the ability to evoke, in your head, anything other than a vague urge to dance.

    Tasteful and perfectly executed, but workmanlike.

    Hot Chip is built primarily on good beats and a sweet, devil-may-care sass, neither of which the groups seems interested in delivering on In Our Heads.

    The main problem with In Our Heads is its musical anonymity.

    Three good tracks [songs, "Motion Sickness," "Ends of the Earth," and "Flutes,"] do not an album make - and, unfortunately, this is the sum of the worthwhile moments on In Our Heads. Elsewhere the album is pure drudgery, remarkable only in its dullness.

    You've got the soundtrack to a fun night out...but little more. [Jun 2012, p.147]

    Hot Chip's new album In Our Heads is, if i could sum it up with one word - INFECTIOUS! :)) The band is definitely having their ScissorHot Chip's new album In Our Heads is, if i could sum it up with one word - INFECTIOUS! :)) The band is definitely having their Scissor Sister's Night Work moment. The album has some of the most queer, hilarious, energetic electro-funk I have ever had the pleasure of hearing! It's alt-dance bliss in places! In Our Heads is brilliantly cohesive as well, and is by far the bands first album I can listen to straight through over and over again. If you have heard anything by this band and liked it - GET THIS ALBUM NOW!!!

    Electro-brit poppers Hot Chip have produced a expertly crafted fifth album. If the group wasn
