Ancestral Recall – Christian Scott. Now, “Doin’ it Right” took me some time to like. Others, like “Lose Yourself to Dance” and “Get Lucky”, are miserable songs that not only drag and lag, but also have little to no quality. The vocoders have since become their signature sound, but are more than welcoming in the opening four tracks “Give Life Back to Music”, “The Game of Love”, and the ‘robo-gloom’ ballad “Within”, which both alienate younger audiences whilst still remaining the listeners in their comfort zone. How the hell had I missed all this the first few times?
The Creator – Mdou Moctar. Sincerely, this is a great, great album. It sounds nostalgic but feels forward-thinking. Some of the songs on here lack any kind of substance, musically or otherwise. Universal acclaim – based on Ratings. They do just as well with a completely different sonic pallette.
Moreover their videos are brilliant with cute little Japanese characters to make it looks spicy mefacritic mean spacey. I love most of their stuff but this is mostly insipid.

I read a review where the reviewer called the lyrics “high-concept”. What makes RAM a good album? Too hit-and-miss as an overall project, unfortunately.
The robot voices have been softened to sound less alien, and more alienated. It sells its simple plot with awesome music, graphics, and sound effects. I found myself getting songs confused, as they sounded so similar to one another.
Some of the songs on here lack any kind of substance, musically or otherwise. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is open to new things from Daft Punk, not just a new EDM album, since it isnt made to be one. Everything about it is just Random Access Memories is the best album of the year so far.

Human After All by Daft Punk Reviews and Tracks – Metacritic
Amazing, Best dance album ever! I’m not saying that they are bad tracks, but they lack the emotion and funkiness that is set-up in the first half.
But it’s Daft Punk, and it had over five star reviews on iTunes even before it was heard, so it’s a crowd that refuses to acknowledge the emporer has no clothes. The bases of disco can be repeated again and again, as in Get Lucky, as if they were samples.
I still have hope that Daft Punk will release an EDM masterpiece One More Time, but it metacitic that they would rather give up on the genre they popularized, instead of trying to reshape it. The bases of disco can be repeated again and again, as in Finally, Daft Punk has made him do. The best I’ve heard in my life and it is capable of making me enjoy most minutes of some metaccritic days. Generally favorable reviews – based on 19 Critics What’s this? This album may be different but it doesn’t mean it’s ground-breaking or amazing.
That’s not music IMO. I never liked techno anyway, in fact Techno is a “no way” to me.
Most of the songs are repetitive as hell. This could be the album that really brings the hpmework genre to mainstream. At first, I wasn’t sure about this album, I thought it was a lil’ bit borin’ comparin’ it to their previous efforts, which were made for dance clubs and metaceitic.
Thomas and Guy-Man made the perfect record they could have possibly made at this point in their career, Daft Punk really is raising the bar with this LP. The first song is called “Give Life Back to Music”, just by looking at its name you can see that Daft Punk are trying to resuscitate Music itself, despite the continuing Robot themes on the album.
Not only is it Daft Punk’s thank you to the genre homwwork opened so many doors for EDM today, but it’s also a story of the duo getting in touch with a more human side of their music. That said, I’ll be lucky to get through RAM more then a handful of times. For everyone else, its a rich rewarding listen. It was and IS played The universal acclaim for this album is entirely confusing to me. The first time I listened to the record was homeework it streamed on ITunes I had high expectations and was thoroughly underwhelmed and disappointed.
The song “Touch” begins strongly as a borderline-terrifying space rock tune with sounds homeqork hearken back to the Cars track “Moving in Stereo”. Titanic Rising – Weyes Blood. A grand, spectacular treat to the ears but seems to rely heavily on hooks.
