EW's GRADE
B

Details Release Date: Mar 13, 2001; Lead Performance: Daft Punk

Four years after their debut, Homework (probably the greatest electronic disco record ever made), the Parisian duo return to claim their DJ-booth throne with a retro-techno-suite positing Switched-on Bach and Van Halen guitar solos as the new apex of club-culture chic. The beat editing and EQ wizardry still wow, and Romanthony, New Jersey's Prince of house, adds soul to the schtick. But next time, mes hommes: less comedy, more ecstasy. B
