Do you remember how much hype there was for this album? I remember it not taking long after it came out for the tide to start turning. There was some hate. Overall I think the responses was (and still is) positive.
So what do you think about this album a year later? I still listen to it regularly. I was never a huge fan of Daft Punk before, though (of course I'd heard them), so maybe that affects my perception of it.
Never really ended up feeling like a Daft Punk album to me. I mean I guess they wrote the songs and produced the album but the majority of the album is a huge collaboration with "real" instruments that make up 90% of the music. Seems like a supergroup branded with Daft Punk in hindsight...
Aside from Motherboard, Doin It Right, Contact, and the second half of Moroder, I don't really... like the album too much. Definitely forgettable.
A terrific album and the most tightly knit, nuanced and well-constructed album Daft Punk has put out. Discovery probably left a lot more impact for it's time but out of their entire catalog this one just resonates with me the most, and it's great music to kick back and relax to. It's equally engaging music to analyze, and I feel it kind of surpassed my expectations since Get Lucky felt way too overplayed by the time the album hit. Give Life Back To Music, Giorgio by Moroder and Doin It Right are some damn good tracks.
The success was well deserved, and from start to finish it's basically the equivalent of them storming back onto the scene.
pretty terrible for Daft Punk. Overall mediocre. No ambition, almost entirely based on nostalgia, no memorable moments. Scaruffi's review is spot on imo, and I don't like Scaruffi. I guess if you wanna pretend you're a classy gent who likes boring disco then it's good.
Thought most of the songs were mediocre, and I felt they tried a little too hard to stray away from what everybody else is doing. I can't blame them, at this point in their careers, they can do whatever they want.
Chic's self titled album is pretty good, and also make you realize how much better Nile Rodgers could have made RAM

Not at all. I thought it was a terrible album.
You're essentially just replying to me because you disagree with my opinion, you didn't give a shit about the "i liked it! :)" comments.
