Re: Daft Punk - "Random Access Memories"
Somehow RAM became an event that transcended music. People who normally never espouse their musical tastes publicly were posting about it on Facebook and every media outlet, even non-music outlets, were claiming it was a milestone in human history. I admit that I'm not a huge Daft Punk fan but I listened to RAM and it felt lighter and less interesting than their debut Homework. I'm also not convinced that a majority of people who bought or advertised their listening of the album on Fbook/Twitter are suddenly disco purists. It felt like the album became a cultural short hand for a certain demographic of young people to feel connected to eachother.
Meanwhile, Trouble Will Find Me is perfect and sincere and the best musical event since Boxer.
