Justice – † & Digitalism – Idealism Two tiring but legitimate strings of Daft Punk comparisons. Two over-hyped and long-awaited first albums. Two an-thou Parisian imprints. Thankfully, there is stuff on here meeting the standards set by this track, such as album opener ‘Magnets’ or the pulsating ‘The Pulse’. Elsewhere, sadly, new ideas are sparse, as if Digitalism and the listener’s conception of what they should sound like never really met. Maybe they said it all on ‘Skip to the End’, who knows.
The A-sides of those glorious 12s are all present on Idealism, an exciting, well-crafted debut that, like Daft Punk 's Homework, is an instant thrill with plenty of reasons to return again and again.
Idealism 's house-rock cross-fertilization goes both ways. Digitalism in Cairo" dismembers the Cure's "Fire in Cairo" for a dizzying, bass-heavy almost-banger.
