I heard Brothers on the radio this morning and enjoyed it.

I vacillate between radio stations on a regular basis and have not heard Hot Chip song. It's not because I don't listen to the radio, which I do, but because no station around me plays Hot Chip.

It was on the local indie station, I doubt any other station in Utah has ever played Hot Chip.

That's about as believable as listening to Nachos. That's not music, that's snack food!

disappointing. Take it In is the best by miles in my eyes, and there's a couple of other good tracks, but nothing that comes close to a Boy From School, One Pure Thought, etc...

I was disappointed by this as well. The good stuff is really good, like One Life Stand, Take It In and We Have Love. But the bad stuff is some of the worst I have heard from Hot Chip. Too bad.

Should I listen to their other albums before I hear this new one, or is that going to ruin the experience of the new one for me? (Not sure if this question makes sense)

I'd say to listen to The Warning before trying anything else, but I haven't heard the new one yet, so I don't know.

I'd say listen to The Warning. And then maybe Made in the Dark. And, honestly, I don't even know if listening to the new one is essential. There's some good tracks, as others have said, but overall, it's not on par with their previous albums.

Whatever, it's just Pitchfork. They've been weird about some ratings lately, to say the least.

Well, I've liked the two songs I've heard from this, but haven't been blown away by anything else I've heard them do. Probably should've mentioned that first.

if the two songs you've heard are One Life Stand and Take it In, then i would say save your money/bandwidth (depending on your stance there).

agreed, oneblood. i think we just all like The Warning and that's the Hot Chip we love. it's a solid record but nothing spectacular.

if you haven't yet, i'd recommend you give their debut a spin. it's closer to The Warning then the last two.
