On the surface, Why Make Sense? is another album of wry, kinetic electro-pop from a group that has mastered the style, but it also builds on Hot Chip's roots - and dance music's origins - in ways that sound fresh. The band reunited with In Our Heads producer Mark Ralph, and they expand on that album's joyousness, this time imbuing it with elements of R&B, hip-hop, and, especially, disco. "Huarache Lights" feels like the album's mission statement, from its slow and steady groove and un-ironic talkbox to its sample of First Choice's "Let No Man Put Asunder," a sizzling disco testament to commitment that was also sampled by the prime movers of house and techno's early days. Later, Bernard Fowler's cameo on Sinnamon's "I Need You Now" injects an extra dose of passion into the gorgeous "Need You Now." However, unlike Daft Punk's Random Access Memories - another love letter to dance music's early days - Why Make Sense? finds Hot Chip looking toward the future.
