Random Access Memories (Daft Punk)

1) This is fucking genius.

2) I cannot stop listening.

3) They have made me enjoy disco. What. The. Fuck.

Disagree. I was very disappointed in it. Brilliant marketing though. They had 1 song on the album that was a great example of their music. Get Lucky. The rest were very different & I don't think an improvement. Doin' It Right was decent & minus the talking Giorgio was ok. The rest really just lacked the energy that DP are capable of providing. Granted I am sure some of my disappointment is a direct result of over-hype but to that you can refer to my first point. Had they not released Get Lucky early I wouldn't have expected the entire album to be like that.

All in all, I'm glad they made a new album. It just should have been better considering the wait time.

You think maybe that was also an artifact of it being a loose concept album rather than a bunch of singles? Also, I'm not a 'dance floor' guy (unless you mean, 'has the size of a dance floor'), so I gravitate more towards stuff like 'Digital Love' and 'Voyager'.

I also enjoyed the 'live music' aspect of it, too, it's 180 degrees from the SUPER SAMPLE MASH that seems to be in vogue.

Minute, that video is awesome. Get Lucky is definitely the best song on the album. I listened to it twice over yesterday and it was really the only song that stuck out to me.

w3rd. I dig "Doin' It Right" too. I pre-ordered the CD & Daft Punk has been so good to me over the years that I don't regret throwing them some bank, but in all honesty I feel a little duped. They released Get Lucky early & I feel that it was a very poor representation of the album as a whole. Oh wellz. Guess we'll see if they can poop out another one before 9 years goes by.

Get Lucky is a freaky-good Summer outside-in-the-Sun song.

(I know it's "up all night to get lucky" but it feels like Summer to me)

Get Lucky stood out the most for sure, but I thought the whole CD was pretty good (for white noise while working).

This is better than the original. Starts off kinda hipsterish but starts rockin soon.

Nice one Minute.

Here is a League of Legends parody one that is pretty high quality. (Minute and others, are you ever going to join us playing this game??)

You can get that cover song for free from Itunes - it's listed under a podcast - and it's just that song.
