The initial track that caught my attention was “Danky Janky,” an effortlessly smooth and laid-back composition reminiscent of Pink Floyd with traces of acid jazz woven throughout. Its gradual crescendo mirrors the sun’s ascent over an otherworldly horizon, while the guitar melodies leisurely meander, never hastening their pace. “Master Class” introduces a spirited and funky tempo, boasting a monumental bass line evocative of elements found in Daft Punk’s repertoire. 

The seamless interplay between the bass and the soothing guitar tones creates a harmonious juxtaposition, inducing a sense of tranquil repose. Perhaps the pinnacle of the album, “Cosmic Slide,” exudes a potent dose of funk reminiscent of Parliament-Funkadelic. Its infectious rhythms might just tempt even the most reserved listener to break into an impromptu dance. “Logic,” although exhibiting a rigid yet irresistibly funky vibe, evokes a touch of the ethereal with the introduction of a wood flute-like sound, adding an airy and celestial dimension. “Sunshine” stands out prominently, featuring vocals and a more synth-driven, cyberpunk-esque quality. Its impeccable groove bears semblance to the signature style of Daft Punk, solidifying its place among the album’s standout tracks.
