Review Summary: Daft Punk have given life back to music.

0 of 6 thought this review was well written

TV ads, billboards, collaborator interviews, teasers and a swirl of rumors. Just a few of the things to promote the most anticipated and overly-hyped LP of the year, Daft Punk's 4th studio album, "Random Access Memories".


Your forgiven for being a bit shocked that someone like Giorgio Moroder or Paul Williams was on this album, but the result of these supposedly unlikely collaborations seems to be nothing like the case. Just like the duo's previous studio albums, Random Access Memories is nothing like it's predecessors. It suggests that Daft Punk are taking their musical talents into a fresh new direction and and a new sound. Something that the duo have done three times in the past, four including the Tron:Legacy musical score. I judge this album not on what it might sound like compared to "Homework", "Discovery" or "Human After All". I base it on the pure fact that it's a style of music I can dig.


Daft Punk have taken the scene from synthesizer-relied music to flat-out disco and funk music that relies more on live instruments and musicians on this album. Filled with the sound of live, native instruments and sometimes with Daft Punk's signature auto-tuned robot vocals. Instead of making small samples and putting them together, Random Access Memories relies on a sound that is more straight forward, with unfiltered vocals(except robot ones) and real instruments.


Everyone thought that this album was going to be electronic music. But to be honest, there is not even any Electronic music on this album, let alone barely any dance music. The duo have once again succeeded to please me in musical terms, no matter what it sounds like, it sounds good. Random Access Memories is an album made to feed the party as well as the listeners ears and soul, full of life. Something they have gave back to music.
