Great news...September seems SOOOOOOOOOOO far away though. Please put in a good work for touring in the Southern U.S. as they neglected us last tour haha. Since you have the "in" with J.B., see if you can get him to do a one-time Q and A with the forum! Thanks for the great information!!!

If Daft Punk comes through with their new album this year, this will be the best year in music for me since Talkie Walkie and Human After All came out.

Talkie Walkie was released in 2004, and Human After All in 2005. Human After All is certainly not what you can call a great album. It's true that some tracks are good... but come on ! Robot Rock, it's just two men messing around with a sample ! OK OK, that sounds good, but where is the work, the creativity ? I'm a huge fan of Homework and Discovery, but Human After All is a let down.

wow, you're right about the years
my apologies
must have been busy doing something at the time
i really should fact check myself before i express excitement about some artists i really like putting something new out
unfortunately, you are wrong about the song
i'll assume you know there is a lot more than a sample involved
that, as a fellow musician, you were just being facetious
paraphrasing your thoughts or whatever
but, regardless of your opinion on how it sounds, its obviously more about production with that whole album
sure, they were more focused on aesthetics than they were on
-verse/chorus songwriting
-producing the same album twice
-making fair-weather fans happy
(does this sound like any bands we know?)
sure, it's repetetive
sure, it was recorded in two weeks
two weeks? what?
with that said
questioning their work ethic is ridiculous
unless of course your resume points to:
-video direction
-2 movies
-3 studio releases
-2 live releases
-a live show that melted everyone's faces off
not many dudes have that under their belt
especially not over the course of a decade
let alone a lifetime
and i don't even need to qualify this
but questioning their creativity is just silly
unless, of course, you'd like to reference something that sounds remotely similar to human after all without googling it first
(ooh, i know, it sounds like the breakwater song they sampled!)
you know the same dudes responsible for homework and discovery were also responsible for robot rock, right?
so i can only imagine you're the guy who goes on boards like these to complain about his favorite band
you're also probably the guy who thought 10,000 hz legend was a letdown
that it wasn't enough like moon safari
talkie walkie not enough like 10,000 hz legend
etc. etc.
this illogical progression blows my mind
this exact lack of faith has destroyed entire civilizations
has caused great floods
in closing:
what have you done for me lately?

I don't think that 10 000 Hz Legend is a let down. In fact, it's my favorite Air album. Maybe my favorite album "ever".

I am fond of Homework and Discovery, and I remember the first time I've heard Robot Rock : a DJ was opening for a Chemical Brothers live show, and no one cared, but suddenly, when Robot Rock started, there was something in the air. And then you learn that most of the song is nearly just a sample from a band called Breakwater. The same with Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger. The song is incredible, but most of the work was made by this Edward Birdsong dude !

I'm not one of these guys who'll bash music using samples only because the music uses samples. I think it's possible to create music, something new and personnal, only with samples. The most beautiful example of this is the album "Everyone Alive Wants Answer", by Colleen. For instance, one of the song uses a one second sample from The Velvet Underground, and it creates something really original and fresh. The Daft Punk, and I love these guys, true, when they made stuff such as Robot Rock, they just take two or four bars from an other (unknown) musician, add some compression, speed up the tempo and some talkbox. It could have been fun if it was a one shot, but it wasn't and it's sad.

And don't tell me "Oh but it was recorded in two weeks, do you realize?" because it's not relevant. The Velvet Underground recorded "White Light/White Heat" in two or three days. And there are many other bands who recorded masterpieces in few days, like the Stooges. You'll tell me "okay but it was decades ago!" and I'll answer you that when a band decide not to spend more than two weeks recording, they can create records like "Hail to the Thief" (Radiohead) or "Sky Blue Sky" (Wilco).

I admit that Human After All songs are powerful when played live... but this doesn't make the record best. For me (and it's my very point of view, no one has to agree here) an album is not a "work in progress".
