We gave it a B+

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+
