Instant Crush, from the new Daft Punk album, sucks. Barely rates above the meandering bores like Game of Love or Within.

Popular music as a whole sucks. Classical is where it's at.

Seeing the phrase "This Debaser tune" made me laugh for some reason.

Within's got a gorgeous melody. I agree that Game of Love meanders, made more apparent by its placement near the too of the album.

Instant Crush is a banger.

I love Instant Crush. One of my faves from that album.

Yeah, agree. Classic love triangle. Though classical is quite amazing.

Beethoven Piano sonatas.

What a weird thread.

Here's my contribution:

Atoms for peace is fucking shit.

Amok grew on me a little bit on a recent listen, but I still find it pretty dreary. Considering the talent on display, the production is all wrong. It's all one long electronic wash. It sounds like Thom could have recorded it all himself.

Apparently it's far more impressive live, and I wouldn't doubt that.

I love Amok, but I get where you're coming from re the talent. I can't tell what Flea adds, and he's a brilliant bassist.

Even Pulk? I can't imagine getting any enjoyment out of that noise.

I enjoy Pulk in a way that I enjoy Treefingers. But I also enjoy House of Cards. So

I think Pulk is really cool to listen to, and it's haunting in a way (specifically the line where he says "...and there are trapdoors...that you can't get back from").

But House Of Cards is beautiful. I think the guitar, drums, bass, Thom's vocal, and the backing vocals all sound spectacular. The song doesn't go anywhere, but so what?

And it's better than Bodysnatchers and Faust ARP. And Jigsaw.
