I like disco and Derrick Carter and "Daft Punk Is Playing at My House," but I don't really like Daft Punk.

Still, I am hesitant to call CRAP on robots. There may only be two now, but really, once Skynet becomes self-aware, they're gonna terminat the CRAP voters first.

I do not have to like your music to welcome you, my robot overlords. NOT CRAP. Please let me live.

Hey, that sounds pretty good. Totally inoffensive R&B/Disco, I understand, but I still like this. I don't know which dude handles the bass for Daft Punk, but fuck can the guy play. He rips.

Would definitely be a smooth track to listen to while getting high with lady friends.

Not huge on the Daft Punk, the Robot Rock / Technologic-era was pretty great but the new song is clearly summer anthem of the year.

Pharrell and Nile Rodgers (much like hand claps and vocoders)-two great tastes that go great together. Can't say I'm that impressed by the song but I can't say I don't enjoy it either. A goal celebration from a ball punted into a wide open net.

I know what you mean. It kind of breezes over you nicely, it's lovely but you wouldn't make the effort to really do anything to it. Disposable really, but most summer anthems are made to define a year and then be forgotten about.

Oh God don't say that. The idea of me becoming a retro 90s type is absolutely horrifying to me. Jamiroquai? Jesus, fuck the 90s.

I didn't see any moving furniture or Dr. Seuss hats.

Man, I don't even remember what Jamiroquai sounds like. That dude came and went quicker than this shit.

Maybe his being-compared-to-Daft Punk will help get him laid at whatever shitty dive bar he frequents nowadays.

Song is still good.

Most of the new album is better than that first song.

New album starts strong but turns into background music really fast.

Not wanting to join the race to review something within minutes that's probably took years to put together, but on first listen I severely doubt that they have the songwriting chops to carry off the kind of music they're clearly wanting to emulate.

I'm with Isabelle on not throwing it in the can on just the first listen, but it feels like a dense record. After the first two songs I knew this record is one that I'm going to have to spend some time with before I cast some kind of judgement.

My initial impression is that it's good. I like it, at least.

I think I won't have any idea what I actually think of it until I hear it at a party. The booty don't lie, as Erykah Badu said.

Only heard the single, but that was my concern. I mean, it's a decent disco song with a pretty good chorus, but it just seems to lack something to me - a bit of grace or ingenuity, something to give it a bit more longevity.

Not writing the record off though, I haven't heard it yet!

listening. i agree that it sounds like they went beyond their scope on this record. it's got this bland-sweetness to it. i don't know how else to describe it. the tracks seem to lack dimension or something.

also, though, i already had formulated a sound in my head based on the descriptions (prior to having heard any of it). i guess it's not really fair to hold it up to an ideal.

but yeah, i thought it was going to sound more like this:

Even their "good" stuff sounds like Abercrombie & Fitch music to me. *shrug*

^ i know where you're coming from on that. i definitely have to be free of inhibitions (intoxicated, in other words) when listening to a group like this or similar, or else i start feeling pretty self-conscious about the whole experience.

there's a time and a place for this kind of music.
