I do think Daft Punk are the wrong targets for this though regardless. They made their most recent album almost entirely with live instruments, it’s practically a classic rock album.

As much as I sympathize with Arcade Fire’s sentiment, I feel like at a fundamental level it’s pretty unjustified. If audiences enjoy EDM and electronic music, who are artists who don’t make that kind of music to criticize the artists that produce EDM/electronica? I do think it’s great when a group like Disclosure reproduces their sound with live instruments, I think that’d be ideal, but people are going to listen to what they like.

If anything, this reminded me of what a great album From Elvis in Memphis is. What a tight band.

Happy to see that Arctic Monkeys have finally achieved near festival headliner status in the states, but damn this is a safe/corporate lineup.

Maybe I’m crazy, but I really like this.

I heard it live and was really excited by some of the songs, but then I went home and listened to the endlessly looped and tinny sounding recordings and was disappointed all over again. “Bloom” and a few others have potential, but there are like three tracks on there that are just not exciting (and that’s out of 8 – and one of those is “Feral”).

Yup, and I think the singles he was involved more heavily with were excellent.

Great piece. After reading about that run, you just feel like the man is due to make a bad album, but I’ve spent every single album wondering, “How the hell is he going to follow this?” and he never disappoints.
