yeah, them without their helmets is not a 'thing'

it's not like KISS without their makeup.

this is not anything noteworthy... much less 'news' worthy.

And it's in NME so it's hardly "breaking news."

You know the thing about Daft Punk, they've got...lifeless eyes, black eyes, like a doll's eye. When they come at ya, don't seem to be livin'. Until they bites ya and those black eyes roll over white. And then, ah then you hear that terrible high pitch screamin' and the danefloor turns red and spite of all the poundin' and the hollerin' they all come in and rip you to pieces.

NME and TMZ. If they added the Daily Mail they'd be the triumvirate of constant, obnoxious failure.

Why did I read the all-caps part of that headline in the TMZ voiceover guy's voice?

I'm shocked that a once-esteemed journalistic enterprise like NME (aka New Musical Express) would stoop to such lows

Their music is pretty good, but with faces like that, they should be wearing helmets.

they hit big a bit over a decade ago, so it's not unreasonable.

actually their old stuff is truly top-notch. random access memories is pure joy distilled into musical form, but their old stuff is amazing.

Pretty funny.  I still have my CD from 94'  God I'm getting old.

Great live set

How did this band all of the sudden get so popular?  They were a mediocre 90's techno band, that recently started coming out with the same $2 keyboard sounding songs that they produced almost 20 years later, and now are more popular than every.  I mean, good for them, but it always surprises me when this sort of thing happens.

The way you tell it, it sounds like they were way ahead of their time. More accurately, I think they were good at what they did and had enough success that they continued to make music and perfect their craft. They did a great job of catching the masses with what they wanted when they wanted it. FYI, this album isn't very keyboard heavy at all. Also, I don't know if it's the album of the year. It's got a few great songs and some filler. Get Lucky and Giorgio (or whatever it's called) are really good, as is one of the other songs with Pharrell and Paul Rogers on it, but that's about it, IMHO.

Oh, yeah, I think I'm going to have to find some time this weekend for a rewatch.

Damn you, Daft Punk, I don't have time for this! :shakes tiny fist:

I really think that part of it was doing Tron Legacy. It introduced their music (in an orchestrated, less techno-centered form) to a new audience, and a somewhat nerdy audience as well, which I'd suspect is fairly susceptible to being drawn in by electronic music. I'm someone that worked on: I was aware of them prior, but damned if I could actually identify any of their music if I had heard it. But Tron Legacy's soundtrack was just so perfectly fitting for the movie that I made the effort to check them out. I expect it happened like that for a lot of people; then follow that up with "and now this duo's first studio album in ten years", and you've got old fans rushing to see if they still have it combined with all this new interest, making it into a really big deal.

They were very bad 90's techno band. They were so bad at it, they barely played techno

Yep, the Tron Legacy soundtrack.  I still haven't gotten around to watching the movie, but iTunes was offering one track off the album for free, and I still listen to it from time to time.
