Let me start off by saying that I am a HUGE fan of Hot Chip. The number of artists that release completely solid albums nowadays is far and few in-between, and I think Hot Chip has been very consistent in doing so. In Our Heads, however, falls short of their three previous releases in my opinion. There are no bad tracks here, but there are a handful of weak ones. Of course, the stand out tracks alone make the album worth getting ('don't deny your heart', 'night & day', 'flutes' are my personal favorites). Yes, it's a good album. Does it deserve FIVE stars? No. I was shocked to see so many 5 star reviews on here considering this album is not nearly as good as their last 3 albums. Nevertheless it is a good album, and if you are already a fan I highly recommend picking it up. For people new to Hot Chip, I highly recommend Made in the Dark.
