Colbert’s handling of the Daft Punk no-show was glorious. It probably ended up being better and more rousing than the actual performance would have been.
Ditto the Colbert spot, or lack thereof.
As for the actual album, it’s sort of a mixed bag to me. Some of these songs are among Daft Punk’s best work. while others are awkward and poorly constructed. If there’s something that stands out on this album, it’s the production, which is among the best of any record in the last few years. The songwriting doesn’t always match, but it’s consistentl sonically pleasing. All in all, it’s nice to have Daft Punk back.
Which genre album category do you think “Random Access Memories” will be submited?
Dance would be my guess.
