Chromeo are back with their own brand of
dance groove music that blends together elements of funk, pop, soul, and electronic. Much akin to Mark Ronson, Tuxedo, and even Calvin Harris’ latest efforts. Head Over Heels is all about feel good music and while it does dig into funk quite a bit, it’s really only surface level – funk-lite if you will. That’s probably why I couldn’t get into the project that much. There were moments that left me bopping my head along with the rhythms but those were few and far in between. Yes, the production is clean and crisp and they check off a lot of the stereotypical elements of classic dance/funk but everything they have to offer here is so shallow and devoid of any real soul that not even their varied array of guest features could do much to save it. All this album did was make me want to listen to some real funk.
One hit of you, I went through the roof
Your love’s so strong, that’s a hundred proof
Too much of you, I ain’t drivin’ home
No, I ain’t spendin’ the night alone
– “Must’ve Been”
