    This is a Chic song with no lyrics. Forty years later, the musicality of Disco been openly embraced.

    Say what you want about disco, but at least most of it was an actual musician playing an actual instrument in real time.

  4. Very tight 16th notes throughout. Talented bunch.

    Anyone else notice the drummer only used kick, snare & hats?

    all of their songs sound the same. a riff, play riff repeatedly, some sort of break/solo, back to the riff. honestly they lost me after their early stuff. they need to try and write songs in a different form or listen to some other music or something. great players, i just can't get into the music.
  6. I love everything Chic to pieces. One great bass-player. I find the little things Edwards has going on 1 million times more interesting than 100.000 rock-albums. Kind of a - back then - modernized version of Jamerson. The chords and chord progressions they are using are often rather uncommon in chart hits.
