They announced before the release that it would be a complete overhaul of their style, personally I think it was a great choice. Their dance vibes were declining album by album and they redeemed themselves by the Tron Legacy soundtrack. It showed a completely new side of the duo and it continues to show in RAM.
Songs like "Give Life Back to Music", "Giorgio by Moroder", "Doin' It Right", they are just so perfect in atmosphere and style, it's a fusion of elements and it shows their talent. I am, however, a bit worried how they are gonna incorporate that in their live shows, but I'm dying to find out.
The single they released is a bit oo "pop-esque" for me, it screams HIT CHARTS CRAP like crazy, but it's just something you have to deal with.
Worst song on the whole album is "Touch" in my opinion. It lacks so many things, it's just a boring maelstrom of noise. Other then that, the album gets at least a couple of plays in a week.
To be honest, I haven't really followed Daft Punk all that much.
I've enjoyed some of their songs in the past, but only really listened to it while on long-ass drives at night (their music is great for staying awake
). I've listened to this new album at least a dozen times since I've got my hands on it though - seems like they changed their style just right to become the music I was apparently looking for these days.
You're right about "Touch", the song does next to nothing for me.

This comment struck me as odd.
Do you not like the song purely because it's a song that's going to do well on the Charts?
Martial Law is real, TPTB have been practicing.
