Are you not conjointly enervated with the superfluous linguistical verbiage adopted by the critical bourgeois to substantiate their superincumbent intellect?

Well I say let’s get back to basics. Album reviews in words with four letters or less.

I can talk all day of Love Gun or Rock and Roll Over, and how you and Gene and Paul and Pete and the KISS crew gave us real hits of the time. But even with all your own jams, you must be more in the mood to hear of new ones, like on Rand Acce Memo.

Many days ago, Daft Punk put out a new set of song bits, and I just got to hear it in full. Your head may spin, but it will live up to the hype for any of you who have not yet been able to take it in. From the note used to open the work, to the time when it all ends, the goal is to get lost in your own mind, and each song will bind to your ears. Shut your eyes, and you will feel like you are in a club, and all your luck will be got. You will want to jump onto your feet and move your body, move to get lost as you cut your rugs. The two guys who made it are not like you or me. Guy and Tom find a way to keep you on the edge of your seat, and by the end you will want more of the same.

Most of us know of the pair as the ones who made all that you hear in the Tron film, but they have been into more than that for a long time. The demo they made in 1993, “The New Wave”, was able to fill a hole in that time, but only when “Da Funk” came out did they find a lot of core fans. On this new one, made with Sony (not EMI), they work with a lot of able guys, like Nile from “Chic”, who know how to help make a fine beat and turn it into more than that. “The Game of Love” is soft, and may even make you take a seat and just vibe out, but that won’t last for long. It is rare to see a band seem so at ease with such a fast beat, but the duo acts as if it is the only way. You also do not want to miss them live, as each set will make you feel like it’s the best show of the year. They make you want to love, act, work hard, and play hard. It’s a good fit for the new ways we can take in this type of art, and the pair have a bond that is real. All I can say is, you need to give Daft Punk its due and play this one over and over and over and over again.
