    Default New Fatboy Slim Track: Yay or Nay?

    Maybe you've just heard this new track from Fatboy Slim and Herve, called "Machines Can Do The Work". If not, here it is:

    Now this track caused some heated discussion among my fellow electronic music friends, because of its Acid Sound. I mean, we can all agree that Acid isn't really the most versatile subgenre, but while some people (like me) like the new track and its mix between modern house and old school acid bubbling, others seem to hate it and go even so far to call it a cheap "Acid 8000" knock off.
    Well, what do the people here think?

    Meh. I don't dislike it, I don't particularly like it either. It's something, and it swings with his style (and I do like some of his stuff).

    It's ok, but I think it'll be made beter with a few remixes.

    I loved FBS when he was sampling old funk songs or weird forgotten stuff and making huge bangers.
    He has always been in love with Acid and the combo of acid and big beats was refreshing at the time.

    This sounds like a Chemical Brothers demo that has 3 months more work to be done before its a good tune.

    He needs to do his own thang not try and emulate these electro plonkers that are everywhere.
    Herve is ok but this is weak.

    it's like he took the acid synth from 'everybody needs a 303' and tweak the filter and arrangement a tiny bit. not totally feeling it, but wouldn't call it an acid 8000 rip off.

    it's better than this lazy ass track fbs did

    iffy at best

    which is just 'michael jackson' with a different vocal...
