Like the title track, ‘I Feel It Coming’ is a collaboration with Daft Punk, who lend the same techno disco production and mechanized vocals they brought to ‘Get Lucky’ to this song.
Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories is one of the most celebrated albums of the year, certain to sit at the top of many a critic’s best-of list.
I don’t think it’s all that great, to be honest. Yes, ‘Get Lucky’ is one of the breakout songs of the year (and one I considered for this list) but the record too often suffers the failures of its genre. Electronic music is repetitive and boring. So is much of this album.
This was just the latest example of the Daft Punk deluge I discussed in a post a month and a half ago.
In my regular life, I would probably never buy this album, regardless of its critical acclaim and ownership of the pop culture moment. I’m just not into electronic music.
I had, though I wasn’t able to offer any information about them. I knew the name but nothing else. Apparently her students were going on and on about the band’s new album and were incredulous that she was blissfully unaware.
