Give Life Back to Music - Daft Punk
Random Access Memories Review;
Let’s face it, the life of dance music has been sucked out years ago and has been replaced with a collection of dialogue samples from random YouTube videos and bass drops that sound like transformers fucking. But fear not, because our robot overlords have brought back the organic feel of dance music with Random Access Memories.
Many people were expecting this album to be One More Time part duex, but they will be sorely disappointed that this is not the electronic-dance extravaganza they have conjured up their heads in anticipation for this long-awaited album. Instead, Daft Punk has vied for two ambitious goals. The first is to bring back the communal and collaborative vibe of 1970’s dance music with the inclusion of artist like Pharrell and Panda Bear. The second goal, and perhaps the most lofty one, is to breathe life back into music through abandoning the use of samples and creating electronic music from scratch with actual instruments rather than computer synthesizers and thus creating a dance album that doesn’t entirely sound like a dance album. Daft Punk isn’t aiming to improve dance music, they are aiming to change your perspective on what music you can, and want to, dance to.
In short, Random Access Memories is not the album the world wanted, but it’s the album that the world deserves.
“Let the music of your life - give life back to music.”
