Just listened to it for the 4th time and I really like it.
I think it's interesting and fun, it's just not great all the way through. People's expectations were just way too high.
From the Daft Punk album Discovery. This is not the Kanye version, nor is it a loose interpretation. I spent a bunch of time going through the original track and writing down every note that's there -- I hope you enjoy it!
I must say I'm kinda shocked by the warm reception this album has gotten on this forum.
I'd rather not listen to this album again. "Contact", which everyone claims to be the savior of the album, sounds no more than a souped-up Blue Man Group track.
Someone let me know when you find the wormhole back to 1997, otherwise I think I'm done with Daft Punk.

Listening to Homework is so refreshing compared to this new one
I'ma ball at the mall shuttin' down the sea wall
Let's just start posting EDM songs that are generic, contain no live instruments or famous session musicians whatsoever, and are better than everything on this album.
Hipsters hate daft punk albums but love their live show.

This thread is now for posting every piece of house or disco music that is a million times better than anything on this album, preferably tracks made by the absolute least talented people possible.
Tool started that decline with 10,000 Days, if you ask me.
I'm pretty sure this is what Daft Punk was going for on RAM, but didn't come anywhere close to touching its brilliance
At least when Tool puts out an album that only has four actual songs on it with a bunch of filler bullshit for the rest of the tracks, the four songs are good.
Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.
Just to put things back on track... got my email reciept this morning. Accounts been charged and vinyl has been shipped. Yeehaw!
Coachella 07 (the introduction), 08 (the bands), 09 (the documentary), 10 (the people i came with), 11 (the relationship test... we passed), 12 (whatever the weather, Dirty Epic forever), 13 (the year of the troll)

Only half way through it so far, but Fact's review took the words out of my head:
Too bad they decided the problem was electronic instruments and not vocoders and schmaltz.For all the talk of Chic, Random Access Memories isnít a disco album Ė itís a soft rock LP on a throwback (read: big) budget, by two people whose last major project was soundtracking a Disney movie in California.
Totally not prepared.But as long as youíre prepared to accept that itís a Hollywood production inspired more by Steely Dan and California highways than Cajmere and French basements, then Random Access Memories is a treat.
