Hey 2013. We need to talk. You've already produced a number of good albums, some even by new bands. But I've got a bone to pick with you, and it's about this new song by Daft Punk featuring Pharrell Williams. It's called "Get Lucky" and it's making waves with its disco revival sound that I'm guessing its 18 million viewers on YouTube thinks is revolutionary in some way.
Let's get this straight though. What Daft Punk has done here is not really new or revolutionary. In fact, it's a pretty huge step back for what were once innovators. Personally, I consider this a pretty big misstep in the Daft Punk canon. It's not that the song is awful, but for a group that did revolutionize electronic music at one time, it's amazing to me that they would make such a half-assed attempt at a genre filled with songs that make this one look so poor in comparison.
I could go on for days, but here's five to check out to put "Get Lucky" in context.
