finally the two year wait is over and hot chip deliever their second album. 'the warning' is an amalgamation of great songwriting and forward-thinking pop-production. its an honest record emotionally and sonically, made by people exploring sound in the warmth of home, not studio, and it is a brittle pairing of voices which sing of love, colours, loss, and warnings. it is the only record you will hear this year, which is brave enough to try and better all of the best records of yesteryear and tomorrow. it provides you all the samples, rhythms and beautiful melodies that you could ever wish for. if you want something which evokes the textures of aphex twin recordings, madlib's sense of deranged hip-hop holiday, the intimacy of prince's fantastically claustrophobic parades, and more than merely the spirit of a certain wonderful paul mccartney experiments in disco, we and hot chip would recommend 'the warning'. limited edition gatefold double vinyl with a bonus 7" featuring the hidden track from the cd and one totally exclusive track.
