My first thoughts on the new Daft Punk album.
I liked it. Is it worth the never-ending and relentless hype? Probably not, but that shouldn’t take away from the fact that Random Access Memories is a very well produced and very catchy album. Some of the more straight forward songs (Fragments of Time, Lose yourself to Dance, Give Life…) caused me to lose interest, but when the songs hit they really stick. The song Giorgio by Morodor is a nice tribute to the now classic producer. The album overall does have a very cohesive feel that has definitely not been present in the earlier Daft Punk albums. It feels a lot more timeless and less gimmicky than the last albums as well.
Favorite Tracks: Within, Touch, Contact, Get Lucky
