Daft Punk is one of my all time favorites. Their 4 singles and video series for them were genius and amazing, but 3 stars was probably generous for this cd because it disappointed me a little. I'm still confused about whether they are treating this as "a new album" since it was so marketed in the US (unlike Alive 1997). If they are, it was a dissapointment, if it was meant to be a bunch of extended, clublike versions of their previous songs, then it's alright. Dont get me wrong, the only new songs on the album, Ouverture and Aerodynamite are great and distinct style like Discovery Daft Punk, but the club mixes and experimental songs I could do without. Parts of the club mixes are great, but they repeat and run on like an average techno song, something I've never known Daft Punk for. The American influence is clear on this album too with the presence of rap on the Neptunes Remix and Slum Village. Both songs are terrible and I try to forget that Aerodynamic was destroyed and rap put over it. I also have to mention that the Romanthony Version of One More Time is possibly the worst song I ever heard, and I'm quite surprised its even on the cd with how bad the singing is. Artists change, but this wasnt change, it just kinda seemed like they were trying to get you to spend money. To top it off, I thought I'd finally have access to their website (only people who buy their cds can go there) and when I loaded the cd it took me to a webpage advertising their Interstella 5555 figurines, forcing me to sign up for some advertising scheme for it. Kinda disappointed but Im trying to tell myself this was just to hold us over for now.
