Heerlijke zomerse plaat!!

Een ietwat gehypet album waardoor het eigenlijk alleen maar tegen kan vallen. Het is ook niet het beste album van Daft Punk.

Dit album heeft me wel erg teleurgesteld. Ik wil graag dat hun meer nummers als Get Lucky maken. Ik vind alleen Get Lucky leuk. Ik dacht eerst van dat ik dit album goed zou vinden, omdat Get Lucky tot nu toe mijn favoriet dit jaar is, maar dus niet. Twee sterren voor Get Lucky nog speciaal.

Het langverwachtte studioalbum "Random Access Memories", van "Daft Punk"!! Maar persoonlijk vind ik dit langverwachtte werk van deze mannen een tikkeltje overschat!! Dus 4 sterren vind ik hier meer dan voldoende, hoor!! ☺

My opinion on this has wavered back and forth so much. At first I thought it was cool, but as I heard it more and more I grew very frustrated with it and tired of it, mostly due to the repetitive nature of their music. I've since come to realise that I can't tolerate listening to this album as a whole in one go, but hearing each track individually I can appreciate them much more. That said, they've done some mighty fine work here in amongst all the repetition.

Es wurde mal Zeit das auch ich das neue Daft Punk Album ganz höre...naja war eigentlich Zeitweise Zeitverschwendung! Ein Album das mich von vorne bis hinten langweilt...es gibt auch Songs die besser ausgefallen sind, wobei das klare Highlight "Get Lucky" ist! Auch gut sind "Doin It Right" und "Instant Crush"...bin aber der Meinung dass das Album kein anderer Singletauglicher Song, abgesehen von "Get Lucky", hat....

A cool listen. Like something I think I'd listen to in a high-class cafe or bar, it's quite smooth.

My favourites from the album were "Get Lucky", "Lose Yourself To Dance" and "Contact".

I was super excited when I heard that Daft Punk were planning to release new music this year as I love "One More Time" and "Around The World" and enjoyed quite a few of their other songs. "Get Lucky" was very instant and it didn't take long for me to love it and now it's one of my favourites of the year. I had high expectations when I went to listen to this but I feel dissapointed and underwhelmed.

I found many of the songs to be too repetitive and some were way too long. The robot vocals also got bothersome as well. I haven't listened to any of their other albums so I don't know if this is something that is common on all of them or whether it's just something that has occurred here.

"Get Lucky" is the obvious standout but "Fragments Of Time", "Give Life Back To Music" and "Lose Yourself To Dance" are good as well. "Doin' It Right" and "Giorgio By Moroder" are easily the poorest songs on the album.

With more listens it may possibly grow on me but for now it only gets 3 stars.

EDIT (25/12/2014):

In hindsight it's kind of amusing that I didn't take to this album much and found it a huge disappointment. "Get Lucky" is partly responsible for this, as it was just so perfect and obviously made me very excited for the album. I only started to really get into Daft Punk's music in late 2012 so I've only been interested for just over two years, but I've become huge fans of their work. I think it started towards the end of 2013, but it largely developed in 2014 and now I've become a huge fan of disco. My knowledge of the stuff from the '70s is not as good as it should be, but I'm slowly working my way towards changing that. I've really enjoy French House and nu-disco though, which is what Daft Punk's music is mostly categorised as. I guess this album was released a bit too early for me, or rather I was the one who was behind.

I listened to "Discovery" in full for the first time earlier today and absolutely loved it and this album was listened to later. I don't enjoy this as much as that album but I can happily say it's improved a lot from when I posted this review initially. "Get Lucky" has aged well for me and improves with time so it being the centrepiece of the album is a good thing. Most of the other tracks have grown on me, "Instant Crush", "Give Life Back To Music", "The Game Of Love", "Fragments Of Time" and "Lose Yourself To Dance" are all ones I also really enjoy now, instead of just liking. There's some less enjoyable moments on here, "Doin' It Right" and "Giorgio By Moroder" epitomise this but I like both now and there's nothing I don't like on here anymore so yay.

Is this still a disappointment? Yeah, but I'd say that's my fault for having such high hopes. It's by no means an amazing album or the best of 2013 for me, but I do love that it was such a massive success and I do echo some of what Hijinx has said below my review. Even if the album is still not amazing for me, I was very glad to see Daft Punk slay in 2013. I feel satisfied that the album has improved for me as I've always had a disappointed feeling, more in me for not enjoying it as much as I'd like to than Daft Punk and the album itself. I'll take "Discovery" and "One More Time" over this any day, but this is still quite an adventure of an album that I'll be happy to revisit every now and again

I really feel bad for giving a hit album like this such a low score simply because it's not my type of music. But I found this to be an incredibly laborious listen and several times I wanted to turn the album off. I haven't loved anything from this album, and the songs that I've heard previously are sadly the best on this album (those are the three singles). This would be fit for a hip upmarket cafe or an elevator but definitely not something that I want to listen to ever again.

Daft Punk as an album artist has never really rocked my boat but they do succeed here by telling a story of sorts and getting away with it.
The production value alone is worth the journey but be warned it's not for everybody.

How an album is canonized ends up meaning a lot in the long run. I've not yet listened to "Be Here Now" or "St. Anger", but yet somehow I still file them in my head as punchlines, and certainly have no desire to listen to them over both artists' more acclaimed bodies of work. And this is all basically due to the long accepted truth by most that they kind of blow. I actually wonder sometimes if some of the people who make these retorts have actually given the albums a fair listen. Even with my patience, I'm hardly going to listen to an album I don't like enough to the point that my opinion feels validated.

Now, in my years of keeping up with the latest happenings in music, I honestly cannot think of a single album that was shrouded in as much mystery and hype as "Random Access Memories". It shows how big the "Alive" tour was for them, turning them from a group who put out some pretty good tunes around the turn of the century, to bonafide legends.

The strategy with how this album was released was genius too, the album became an event, something everyone needed to be a part of. Perhaps a more important album from 2013 will surface in the future, but for the time being, no album was a bigger deal in 2013 than this.

And thus comes the problem as brought to you by the scum of the internet: the haters! Because people are rather impressionable and it can be surprisingly easy for other people to give them opinions to stick on. What this means is that when this album was finally rolled out, there was a giant clusterf**k of opinions left, right and centre. Everyone wanting to make sure everyone else hears their opinion the loudest so they would adapt it to heart. Funnily enough, this is still happening months on. Whenever I read an opinion piece on this album, it's often met with a quick, sharp statement along the lines of ""Random Access Memories" actually was objectively amazing" or "Everyone knows "Random Access Memories" was shit anyway". It's as fascinating as it is sad.

And that's why I've waited until long after the event has passed to articulate my views. In general it's hard to take much grain to it if someone's only sat on an album for a few days and heard it once or twice. No one applauds a 'FIRST!' in comments sections after all.

I think this album sounds like what it was hyped up to be: It's a big album with big ambitions to be a game-changer. Whether that's happened can't yet be determined, but I do think this album does a good job of standing up to its tasks.

What's interesting about this album is just how adult-oriented it is. While a lot of modern dance music is all about loud noises being injected into your ears as frequently as possible, Daft Punk slow things down, with the focal point on here being attached to a lot of slow grooves. There's also a lot of callback to the '70s, with the guest appearances from Nile Rodgers and Giorgio Moroder, as well as the combination of disco and yacht rock motifs. Even "Touch"'s reflective narrative reminds me of "Time" from Pink Floyd.

I find this album to be a journey of sorts. It opens with an immediate rush, and then it's just wall to wall of distinctive hits, culminating of course on the big hit single "Get Lucky". I feel perhaps after this point is the only time I can accuse it of containing 'filler', but that's only because there's a slight lack of personality towards the end in comparison to the start. The highlights for me incidentally come from some of these moments, "Motherboard" almost sounds like video game music to me, but it's also very evocative. "Contact" is an appropriate closer too, it's a massive burst of energy that's always exciting when going through the album from start to finish. I still think "Doin' It Right" is a bit of an oddball there, but I do get humour from the fact that so many people who have never heard of Animal Collective are now getting exposed to Panda Bear, and on a reasonably catchy and radio friendly tune as well.

This album fully delivers on its promise for me and is just a delight to listen to.
