If you think the previous generation is corrupt wait until the generation after yours laments how bad your generation was. I didn't mean to either say or imply that! In fact I think the current young generation is in most ways far more highly evolved than mine! It's also clearly more passive but since they don't face the military draft perhaps that's understandable.
Thanks for reviewing this wonderful album. I bought it the day it came out and was extremely impressed by the sound quality. It sounds much much better than any new not reissue popular music LP I've purchased in the last several years. I wish more care and attention was put into today's albums as they did here. The LPs have a DR value of 13 and the digital have a value of 8. As a Gen Xer i think that both Millenials and Boomers are pretty entitled. Wait ten years till all the Boomers that spent their money on vacation homes and Harleys try to retire.
And besides, if the Millenials weren't buying all this new vinyl we'd be running out of new audiophiles. If you want to hate on Millenials, hate on their new love of cassettes--yuck! Also, I disagree with the idea that Air is the 'head French musical duo'--Daft Punk has sold a lot more albums and had a much larger impact. They win by any measure.
Otherwise another great read by Mikey and great to see him reviewing new music and not just reissues. I think it's interesting you pointed out the cost of this album. I remember another review talking about how expensive this record sounds. I think Daft Punk looked at the genre of electonic dance music EDM for the Oldsters reading this they have helped create and decided to reinvent their sound.
As we've seen with some of the best muscians of any genre, the ability to succesfully reinvent your sound is one of the hardest things to do in this industry.
My inelegant choice of words for sure! I guess I should have used the word "cerebral". Why do you feel personally insulted?
I was expressing an overall opinion about a generation's political engagement in the face of some serious problems affecting its future, not about its political opinions or beliefs. Given the clearly serious economic and social issues pressing upon the current young generation do you think its level of political activity is appropriately commensurate with the issues it faces from reproductive rights to student loans to jobs etc?
As for the generation, this is the Ipod generation. Now they are enabled to text their friends for 3hrs on a family vacation. I have seen real lif stories of a girl snatched while texting on a 3 mile walk and video girls falling into fountains. My generation was happy to get a local phone in our own rooms; cell phones spread to the poor a year after I graduated high school.
Do I begrudge Mr. Fremer his SP opinions, not a bit. I just do not care even if I agree. Nor do I care for anyone in the entertainment field using their celebrity or access to the media to share their opinions on anything except their craft and fields of expertise. I believe mine was a sociological, not political statement.
I didn't take sides. I simply noted a generation's apparent apathy. Yet you took time out of your life to write a nice, long, eloquent response. Perhaps you do care. What's really interesting, is how people can be bothered enough by Mr. Fremer's opinion to actually offer a retort. Random Access Memories is easily the best sounding mainstream release I have bought in recent memory. There is a very extensive interview in a recent issue of Mix magazine that I read at a musician friend's house.
According to the article, virtually everything was initially recorded on analog tape recorders. Even samples that are used were recorded on analog with Daft Punk playing the instruments. Tracks with orchestra were recorded live with a full symphony to analog tape.
Because of the complex editing involved, everything recorded was dumped into Pro Tools. What's most fascinating to me was the recording of the final mixes. First off, no plug-ins were used. Still, this is a better solution than carrying a record player on the bus to hear Dark Side of the Moon. Amazon media players vinyl. View Comments. Sponsored Stories Powered By Outbrain. Jennifer M. Eight years removed from the icy minimalism and overall reception of Human After All, Daft strove for balance, to marry live instrumentation and electronic prowess in ways unlike anything the group had previously attempted.
There is no better entry point into the Daft Punk cosmos than through Discovery, an album that bursts with glorious, fine-sugar hooks and childlike rapture. After Matsumoto joined the team as visual supervisor, Shinji Shimizu had been contacted to produce the animation and Kazuhisa Takenouchi to direct the film. With the translation coordination of Tamiyuki "Spike" Sugiyama, production began in October and ended in April Cartoon Network later hosted the episodes online as part of their short-lived Toonami Reactor project later revived as Toonami Jetstream.
Many elements common to Matsumoto's stories, such as romanticism of noble sacrifice and remembrance of fallen friends, appear in Interstella Daft Punk revealed in an interview that Captain Harlock was a great influence on them in their childhood.
They also stated, "The music we have been making must have been influenced at some point by the shows we were watching when we were little kids. The film was well received by critics. The BBC gave the film four stars out of five, saying that the film is a "visual and aural treat of intergalactic proportions". Empire said the film was "Fine if you like the band — you'll be treated to some cartoons playing over the top of their Discovery album.
