This is my first music review and I am not a music connoisseur by any stretch, so I would not expect them very often, but for certain bands I will make an exception, and one of those groups is Daft Punk. Their new album Random Access Memories came out two whole days ago, and I love it.
The album has a very 70’s disco feel, but it doesn’t get stuck there. It explores all kinds of music from rock to orchestral, and they are really pushing the boundaries of what Techno/Electronica can be. I know some people are disappointed by the fact it is not a straight up techno album, but it is fun to hear artists explore their craft. Like most electronica albums some songs outstay their welcome, but it is a small nit pick.
I am sure I am not the only one who’s best stereo is in their car, and the first morning I got the album I thought of calling in sick and taking a drive just so I could listen to more. Instead I had to go to work and listen to it at my desk.
This album may not be for everybody but it is for me.
