EW's GRADE
B+

Details Lead Performance: Daft Punk

Burping out its hook over an old-school funk beat, this French duo's ''Da Funk'' is techno's long-awaited answer to deliciously kitschy classic-rock instrumentals like ''Frankenstein.'' Not every track on their debut is as arresting as that single, and thumpers like ''Rollin' & Scratchin''' go on too long. But Daft Punk never forget to let their playful, hip-hopping ambient techno keep turning the beat around, making Homework ideal disco for androids. B+
