So, anyone else finding it impossible to force themselves to like Random Access Memories?
What's to like. It's a failed attempt at making the classic disco sounds that Daft Punk used to succesfully sample. It is a failure of the will!
It's a phenomenally awful album. I knew that one day DP's weird "pseudo-ironic" approach to re-appropriating old disco/funk stuff would collapse in on itself pretty spectacularly, but when it finally hit it was depressing that the album I had been listening to at work on repeat was actually not a new Bruno Mars album or something, it was actually Daft Punk.
Their early stuff is still fun.
I'd rather listen to a badly engineered album with good and exciting ideas. Good production is no saving grace, not at daft punks level of notoriety; its expected.
I am not a Daft Punk fan, but is this the album poe was thrilled about a few months ago? It sounds like decent easy listening (except the cat noises, my god).
I saw this on Wikipedia.
On 19 January 2012, Daft Punk ranked No. 2 on Mixmag's Greatest Dance Acts of All Time, with The Prodigy at No. 1 by just a few points.
I have never read Mixmag and I don't own any Daft Punk, but I can tell from this alone that they absolutely suck as music critics.
I respect the album quite a bit, as it is a huge departure from the Daft Punk norm and obviously well done. However, aside from Get Lucky, which I don't mind, the rest is just not the sort of thing I have any interest in listening to.
I really like about half of it, and really don't care for the other half. Not their best, but... better than Human After All.
It's nowhere near as good as I wish it was, I guess is the bottom line, but it's not bad.
I remember listening to the whole album during a "upgrading windows from the first to current iteration", and I liked it. Of course, I found the windows video pretty entertaining too. Also, I didn't like the lyrics to this song and think it's better with the cat sounds, so basically fuck my opinion.
I'm glad I'll have this stuck in my head now and again, like it is now.
I like this track a lot
This cat version is less painful than to listen to the original lyrics.
The album could have been better thats for sure, but I love that Paul Williams, Giorgio Morodor, and Nile Rodgers are a part of it. Respect to DF for including these fellas. Cat Lucky is damn funny, thats no doubt.
