  1. 9.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Funk is slick, funk is cool, funk brings us all together. Funk-by-numbers has not yet had an update worth of Sly Stone; but in Head Over Heels, Chromeo have cracked it. They never miss a beat in updating it for 2018

  2. 8.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    Head Over Heels is maddeningly catchy and no party this summer is complete without it

  3. 7.0 |   Exclaim

    Music this nakedly derivative requires sharp pop instincts to be successful, and tracks like these prove that Chromeo are still able to create magic within their well-worn source material, even if they are retreading old ground

  5. 6.7 |   Consequence Of Sound

    The most dependable dance band of the 21st century continues its consistency streak on Head Over Heels, which contains enough radio-ready rump-shakers to earn a spot in your warm-weather playlist for this summer and a few more to come

  6. 6.0 |   Rolling Stone

    Moments are fleeting, and there aren't enough of them to make you fall head over heels for this album

  7. 6.0 |   Slant Magazine

    Chromeo's formula is well-suited to producing unpretentious, likeable pop-funk; it's just too bad that it's never felt more like a formula than ever before

  8. 6.0 |   The Skinny

    A multi-layered trail through funk's iterations loaded with squealing synth leads, big basslines, and more sass and energy than you can shake a stick at

  9. 5.7 |   Pitchfork

    On their bona fide all-stars album, everyone from DRAM to Amber Mark to The-Dream cannot save the electronic duo from their tastelessness
