    So, bit of a Daft Punk n00b here.
    Absolutely loved the Tron Legacy soundtrack, and the album of remixes that went with it. I think it was the strings and the humungous sweeping chords etc that did the trick.

    Given that, would I like any of the 'regular' Daft Punk stuff?
    Just buy their greatest hits album - it's only 3.49 on Amazon apparently.

    It's a very strange album, not at all what I was expecting. The songs all feel really random, maybe that's why they called it Random Access Memories. There were a couple of moments where I started to wonder if it was a fake, which can't be a good thing..

    Daft Punk forgot how to Daft Punk.

    SEE, DECKARD. I told you it wasn't great.
  • Deleted user 14 May 2013 09:19:56
    I now regret that because they shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath as The Chemical Brothers.

    Daft Punk are a poor man's Mirwais.

    This was released 14 years ago and feels fresher even now than anything Daft Punk ever did.

    I think I'll listen to Mirwais today instead of DP.

    Full album from 2000, here.

    Sounds like some half rate shite you hear on Radio 1.

    Yeah this is a weird album. Feeling track 3 (aside from the Arnie voiceover dude), the percussion at the end is niiice. The rest is just odd, track 2 is particularly shit.

    They've never topped the Tron soundtrack IMO.

    Alive 2007 is my favorite album still.
    Yeah its probably mine also.
    Isn't that just a concert of their previous stuff?

    Looking at all the albums now and trying to choose which one I want, discovery sounds the best.

    It's a concert of their previous stuff, but it's all remixed and mashed together, with a much stronger baseline. It's glorious. Out of their studio albums discovery is probably my favourite, but they all offer something different.
    As I don't know the songs the crowd are a distraction. Would rather the mix with no crowd.
    Think I will go with discovery , their first album is a bit too traditional house for me on quick listens. Human after all has some great tracks but less consistent than discovery.

    For me it's always been about the hard slow beats and this album doesn't have that. I went over to my receiver to check if i had turned down the bass by accident or something.

    You can't hear the crowd, and when you do it adds to the atmosphere of the album. It's fucking brilliant. I would sell a kidney to see them live.
    I've seen them live twice :)

    A few of the tracks are ok but some are bloody awful :/

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

  • Deleted user 14 May 2013 12:52:43
    Well I purchased the mp3 album discovery off amazon and has it on whilst cleaning and making lunch. It's bloody fantastic isn't it, each track has all these little variations that keep them interesting and no two tracks are the same.
    Just burnt it to cd for the car with robot rock and get lucky added to the end. :)

    Did the builders enjoy it too?

    AVOID

  • Deleted user 14 May 2013 13:13:12
    No builders Neil, that was a one day job with a quick pop back to put it the last panel. Just me and one kid today.

    Thought I'd give RAM another go out of fairness, but my opinion hasn't changed so far. Giorgio by Moroder is super-frustrating because there's a definitely a good song in it somewhere but it becomes totally OTT with string sections and fucking electric guitar solos.

    I can't think of much that it wouldn't put to shame to be fair.
