I love this album. I absolutely fucking love it. And before you all jump on me for being a fanboy, I almost gave up on it my first listen through. Nothing about it is even in the same universe as what I would have thought a new Daft Punk album would sound like a few months ago. Hell, 3/4 of it isn't what I thought it was going to sound like last week. It's going to end up extremely high on my top 10 list for completely different reasons than I anticipated, and I think that's pretty awesome.

I need to add
Daft Punk - Random Access Memories
After two days and many spins, this album became a very pleasant birthday present...I went in with no expectations and very little anticipation and came away blown away...I really hope this one gets a interstella 5555 like treatment...
I went in with extremely high expectations and still got blown away. Definitely add it to mine as well, please.
While I would totally love an Interstella 5555 treatment, they've said that they don't really want to make videos and they also don't want to repeat things they've done in the past, so I don't really see it happening.
I didn't want to get sick of it too fast by listening to it 6 times a day, so I actually managed to go through the entire day today without a listen. I'm very much looking forward to another spin tomorrow morning first thing.
Yup, I love it. While there are definitely a few throw aways, when this album hits, it hits big. Giorgio, Touch, Get Lucky and Contact are going to be classics. Niles Rodgers just fucking slays on this record. It's such a beautiful sounding record and it's incredibly full and complex...I can see why it took 8 years to make. Worth the wait.
Also, Vampire Weekend - Modern Vampires of the City.
Diane Young is such a powerhouse, and the rest of the album follows after that. First time I have ever really enjoyed a Vampire Weekend album. Very mature and adventerous compared to their other stuff. I love it.
Holy shit, RAM - Daft Punk....I fucking loved every second of it...on the 10th spin and it keeps getting better.
Also please add the Vampire Weekend record...I'm only on my second listen, but I pretty sure this will be in my top 5 at the end of the year. Seriously, I love everything these guys have ever put out. Not sure why , but I thought I would finally hate something by them, nope.
That's why I'm so impressed with the Daft Punk album. I've probably given it about 15 listens by now, and I haven't tired of any of it even in the slightest. Every listen has just gotten better and that hasn't happened in a long time. I can't get tired of it, it's just so well crafted. Those kick drums are perfect.
