What should be in your ipod this week? 02

The long awaited third album of Daft Punk, Human after all, has finally been unleashed. I have listened to it over and over again for the past week. Maybe it's the animation work of Leiji Matsumoto, Interstella 5555, that first caught my eye on MTV when I first heard of this French Duo a couple of years ago. The music is repetitive, sometimes annoying, but somehow their magic managed to draw me into their world with the Discovery album. The new album is no different. It's the same humor with lots of vocoder works and it's the same hard edge syns and power guitar with simple hooking riffs.

Daft Punk's techno/house obession shines through in this album as if they took the two previous albums apart, added salt and vinegar, and merge them back together again. The end result is something that sounds very familiar, simple but yet different. Even good ears wants to revisit them again and again.

The album starts off with an 80's beat "Human After All". The Vocoders maybe harsh but it's somehow mesmerizing. Moving onto a simple "Robot Rock" with simple distorted lead melody. "Make Love" is more a chill out track slammed right in the middle of the album to make the visual space for the album. Technologic's lyrics "Buy it, Use it, Break it, Fix it, Trash it, Change it, Upgraded" is a total rendition of "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" from "Discovery", it totally sums up the album in my point of view. The album ends with a dreamy track "emotion", lots of layering with digitized vocals.

The album although does not sound completely original when compared to their past works, but it has more character, more attitude, more modern contemporary elements. It has not failed to surprise me with hidden emotions each time I listened to it in the past week. With Daft Punk, you either like it or you hate it, but I recommend music lovers to give it a try.
