Before Human After All, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo were the mysterious golden boys of the French House scene. Human After All was met with a heavily negative reaction, with much outrage over its heavily industralised sound, its repetitiveness and its poor production quality. But despite this, Daft Punk strike gold in a number of songs with their usual infectious sound still there, but in a different context.
After Discovery, this one was quite a let down for me. A few good songs here and there, namely the title track and "Robot Rock", but everyone should expect much more from the two dudes that crafted Discovery with such skill.
How could this have happened to Daft Punk... they make a magical album like Discovery & they put out this piece of crap 4 years later. I don't know what I hate more about this album... the annoying repetition or Technologic having no true sense of musical ability in it whatsoever. Homework was in some weird way tolerable (noting it's 2 rating that I gave it) this album is however for me, unlistenable. You are talented musicians Daft Punk. I advise make another Discovery like album that has the same epic quality of music & I will be satisfied
Daft Punk's followup to the exciting and sweet Discovery falls flat with it's uncatchy beats and straight robotic feel. The title may be "Human After All" and indeed it is just that, showing that Daft Punk can have a bad album, maybe next time they'll pick it up.
