Contact, that last track is something. I'd call the album "fun" more than "mindblowing" right now.

One More Time is annoying and was everywhere back then.

Isn't this band supposed to be "fun"? Hardly the epitome of "art", since they were always cheesy as fuck.

I like what I heard just now though. That final track is very good.

One More Time is annoying and it was everywhere, like a disease, back then.

I think part of my problem with the band has always been the way they've been treated as such an artsy band. They're pretty damn cheesy.

This album's pretty enjoyable. Haven't been able to finish it, work keeps picking up in bursts, but "Touch" is fantastic. Highlight for me so far.

Bah, I should have been patient and not listened to this at work. The last four tracks sound stellar on my car speakers.

It's going to take me a few listens.
Gotta agree here! I'm up to Touch (which is sensational) at the moment and can't help but feel just slightly disappointed. I knew it wasn't gonna be the Daft Punk album I was expecting/hoping for, so I'm sure it will grow on me. Similar guitar on a lot of the tracks.

Giorgio by Moroder is unbelievable, though. And Pharrell has more than made up for the horrible song he did with Tyler with Get Lucky and Lose Yourself To Dance so far.

So Touch absolutely rules, but when the music cut off just as it was reaching a climax resulted in crushing disappointment.

And Get Lucky is still as good as ever.

This album belongs in the time frame between 1977 - 1979.

The Giorgio Moroder track is very representative. Good album but with filler.

My 2nd favorite observation of all time, trailing only "a good film but not perfect".......

He doesn't like you (either, fuck appropriate use of the word).

It was okay. The only other Daft Punk I've heard is Discovery. I did like 2 or 3 tracks (yes, including the last one), but probably won't buy it.
