Here is my Daft Punk tribute piece. It's been online for a couple of weeks now but Justin asked for it to be included in Tempo. I love Daft Punk, they are innovators and I adore the fact that they have a great mystique about them. Discovery album really defined my first few years in college, so whenever I listen to that album it takes me back. I also can't get the anime movie out of mind when I listen to that album. Random Access Memories is a stunner. A lot of people I talk to about it admit they don't like it. That it's not as good as Discovery, that it's too old fashioned or over produced. I feel they missed the pint - the album is about their celebration of good music. Music that was lavishly produced, intricately crafted and that stood the test of time. I think they wanted to remind people of how wonderful great pop music can be. And stand out from all the dreadful vapid crap that people consider music these days!
