Last few moments of the video with a track. Am I being slow on this or is this new?
Can't watch this as I'm in work right not but I feel sick with excitement.
and it is NOT what you're expecting. it's fucking excellent too, obviously
I mean, what was it I was meant to be expecting?
I wanted to know what you were expecting that it confounded.
The release date can't come round soon enough!
I predict a backlash
they're somehow above it now, aren't they? They're being looked to as pioneers so whatever they put out is 'the new way'. FWIW i think it'll actually be killer and lots of people will try and pretend to be indifferent. And they will be chumps.
Get Lucky is completely retro, though, isn't it? I'm not sure there's anything in it that doesn't sound like 30 years ago. Not that I'm using that as a stick to beat it with, just saying it's not really new or different, is it?
I don't know about that. It sounds more homage than replica
More like when Oasis started out. You know, it was great fun guitar rock but there was nothing in it that reflected the way things had changed since the 70s where that type of rock was forged. It didn't sound remotely 'new'. You can't really be classed as pioneers if you've produced something that is a perfect homage of older music.
if it's all like that I'll be a little more unsure. GL is fresh funk with robo voices, sure. But they've surprised before and the snippet up top sounds great.
Can't really judge a 74 minute record on one listen though really.
Otherwise you may as well say you can't judge any record until it's been around at least 15 years, which is just as valid a comment since it normally takes
~ 5 years for fashion around its release to die
~ 10 years for it to be viewed as too 'of its time' and out of date
After another 5 years it tends to have shrugged off all the baggage but be fresh enough to judge prior to the mandatory 20 year mark where all the same fashion becomes cool again.
If that sounds silly it's because so is the idea that you can't judge a record off one listen.
but I still don't think one can properly critique a record on a single listen.
Reckon it's one of those records that'll get lukewarm reception from anyone who hasn't been paid off (soz P4K), be largely forgotten, then crop up as the kooky 'surprise' inclusion on cutting edge site's end of decade lists.
But I'm pretty sure the internet has ruined this theory going forward. Still you can reply calling me out or 'this' me in 20 years. We'll see I guess
Going forward is management bullshit.
Easy Lover by Phil Collins and Philip Bailey. not a bad thing like.
Is it in the same vain as Get Lucky?
but it didn't sound like disco to me.
Probably at this link.
