Daft Punk - Random Access Memories
Okay, so after discovering Get Lucky was more or less a straight up disco track I realized that Random Access Memories would not be their take at modern EDM but had no idea it would basically be the ultimate fusion album with more classic pop and rock style than modern electronic style. While definitely maintaining electronic influences, the style is distinctly not an extension of the EDM craze Daft Punk began feeling more like Pink Floyd than Deadmau5. Hell, it even includes subtle hints of jazz, jazz-fusion and soaring orchestral arangements on some tracks; with several old school solos that hit all the right bluesy notes. I’ll be extremely interested to see how the mainstream EDM and pop realms will react to this artfully crafted album.
