Well, I don't just jump to do what everyone else is doing. That has benefits and drawbacks. Initially, I was turned off by Get Lucky, mostly as a father who didn't appreciate his daughter listening to those lyrics. If you're not a father, then you won't understand that.

Many months later I was far more impressed by the Pentatonix medley of Daft Punk songs. I was honestly far more amazed with their covers than the original songs. I sought out and listened to a few of the originals, which further reinforced my opinion that Pentatonix is amazing when it comes to arranging covers or medleys of other people's music.

Somewhere along the line, I noticed that Daft Punk won a Grammy for this album. That got my attention. So I capitulated and decided to listen to this a bit more. One song stood out to me above the rest: Giorgio by Moroder.

So I bought the CD. My kids both instantly wanted it too. Finally got around to listening to the entire album at length. I still like Giorgio best. But a few more of them have grown on me. I probably like 1/2 of the album after listening to it for a while. There are some hidden gems in there. I'm particularly impressed with the drum work on Contact. Doin' it Right also sits well with me.

I notice with some curiosity that these guys use the Vocoder exclusively whenever they sing, to create their "robot" vocal effect. I suppose that's why they hide behind their helmets, it just makes the sound effect work better. In any case, they turned out to be far more interesting to listen to, after I got over my dislike of Get Lucky's lyrics.
istened to the album when it first came out and it took me another 6 months to revisit and appreciate it. It was underwhelming at first imo and slowly grew on me.

Contact and Fragments Of Time are also tracks I enjoy.

thanks for posting - parts of her vocal on the track "glory" sounded like Maynard James Keenan which I found very surprising. Is the album Good?

I like it...there are times that I thought that I was listening to Cat Power or Black Prairie. The album didn't blow my away or anything, but I have only listened to it once...

I have it on here, its singing with HD800/WA2. I like it so far, half way through. A lot of new albums for me don't have the greatest production such as the latest offering by - the naked and famous, but this albums production seems a lot lot better.
