    So after their brief return for the Tron: Legacy soundtrack, the famous French House duo are now well-and-truly back with a new song, Get Lucky and a new album: Random Access Memories.
    What do you guys think of Daft Punk's latest comeback?

    Been looking forward for this for awhile now, I only wonder if there will be another film to go with it.

    This seems like the most hyped album for a very long time.

    I hope so too.

    It is impossible for me to describe how much I am looking forward to Random Access Memories.

    I've been hearing Get Lucky everywhere since it was revealed. So much that I would normally get sick of a song, but it's so good I haven't (yet). Of course, this IS Daft Punk after all.

    Still need to listen to it. I suck at discovering new music.

    Random Access Memories is streaming on iTunes now.

    Much as I want to leave the surprise to next Monday.... I have waited too long for this album.

    I'm really really looking forward to it, I have done the stupid thing of listening to fan made loops before "Get Lucky" was released but I'm glad that it still managed to loop it on my ipod even with Pharrell Williams. Overall I'm excited but I have learnt to never get your hopes up.

    Also the Action figures they are doing look so AWESOME!

    Having listened to the new album, it is, as most people probably expected, very good. I don't know if I'd say it was their best, but it is extremely enjoyable. My favourite tracks have to be "Touch", and "Contact". Touch is so...out there. I just love everything about it. Contact is less of a "song" and more of an "auditory experience". Makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up at its crescendo every time. I'm not musical enough to write an elaborate review about how it's transcending whatever or a clear reference to some obscure style of 80's electronica, so I'll leave it there.

    Having listened to the new album a few days ago, I have to say that this new album is, in the words of Mr Kipling, exceedingly good!

    10/10

    Random Access Memories
    Homework
    Human After All

    I love what the Times says about it: Not Perfect but really really good. Getting it for sure tomorrow.

    Some sad news: the singer on One More Time from the album Discovery, Romanthony, has died.

    RIP :(

    When I saw the news on that, I literally just said "Oh."

    Just bought it from HMV. I'm loving Georgio By Moroder.

    The production technique used for this track is very interesting: apparently, they used a mic from each era to correspond to Giorgio's autobiographical monologue.

    Well I'm annoyed that I couldn't pick up a CD where I work but I downloaded it on iTunes and my thoughts, very good. I wouldn't say it was it brilliant the time frame just didn't warrant that. However I had a lot of fun especially with "Touch" and "Doing it right". I know that I will be playing this on cool Summer nights and maybe have little dance with a funky soul sister.
