Not really the biggest daft punk fan, but liked the TRON soundtrack, should I check this out?

Absolutely. Just forget all you know about their previous output. The Tron soundtrack has a slightly closer feel to this than the rest too. A few orchestral bits here and there. And they work really well.

I'll give it a chance, but I have no expectations. My brother and a couple friends think "Get Lucky" is just so fricken great. My brother says it will be "the song of the summer.". Yeah, I'm not seeing it. Pretty meh.

Get lucky is a centrepiece but not reflective of the entire record at all.

Keep listening. By the 5th spin you'll be obsessed, like the rest of us. And you'll be happily smitten.

They'll never tour this. Can't see how they'd work a live band into their act.
I hope they do find a way.

I love this album. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the first half of 'Touch' and its weird, melodramatic outtro.

Fragments of time is a little grating. It's like they have this really good flow going in and the. That happens. Could be more about its placement it I'm nt loving that one.

I heard the radio edit of 'Get Lucky' and found it pretty bland and forgettable. I understand why some might like it, but only as much as other bland and forgettable disco/funk. The section with the Daft Punk-esque robotic voices, and the open hi-hats on the drums, was pretty good. But it was one section in the middle of a song which was four chords repeated over and over, which really could've done with a bridge. Should I bother with the album?
