French rich kids and pseudo-musicians Daft Punk finally shat out another LP, seemingly to the universal praise of fans and critics, but mostly to the joy of advertisers and money grabbing PR men drowned in the sound clasped hands sweatily rubbing together.
The lead single “Get Lucky”, is perhaps the least inspired piece of music I’ve ever heard. It’s so generically average that it almost becomes remarkable in its self. Worst still, I’ve been forced to endure this abomination of music every-bastard-where I go – in the car to work, in work, on the TV, on the radio… It’s inescapable, and it’s making me want to tear the ears of the side of my head.
Pharell’s vocals are terribly boring, uninspired, and lazily delivered. Every syllable is like nails on a fucking chalkboard. Very few recordings exist where the lead vocalist doesn’t commit to the recording. Calling this ‘phoned in’ would be quite the compliment.
As for the actual “music”… fuck sakes man…
The same chord progression loops endlessly, Nile’s attempts and to his credit, succeeds to use his generic wah guitar to bore me to death, and empty blandness engulfs me to the extent that I can no longer physically breathe.
As the track reaches its conclusion, Daft Punk “cleverly” introduce the patented vocoder bullshit over the top. It’s executed so poorly and is so unashamedly bad that I have never once managed to listen to the whole thing without putting my head in my hands.
I’d go as far as saying that no music in the last 10 years, be it amateur or professional, has made me want to pull my hair out as much as the new Paft Dunk shalbum.
Oh, you wondering why I mention the album in the title, but only talk about one track? Well that’s because they’re all the fucking same pish. Same fucking chord progressions, same horrible writing, same sense of falling into a dark and empty room and smashing your head on the wall to relieve your monotony…
Zero out of ten. Would not ever fucking listen to again, not even in a life or death situation. Would not recommend, not even to the most throughly deaf moron.
