Morning Fuel: Major Lazer - Too Original
I always want to like Major Lazer more than I do. That’s impossible with this song, though, because the track is perfect. It’s got everything it should: syncopated word-salad lyrics over an equally off-balance and syncopated beat. The flashy sound effects, arbitrary horn flares, and aggressively simplistic keyboard full of tone-bending are just taking victory laps.
