To the Critics of Daft Punk's new album. If you are under the age of 20 or even if you're older and have no taste for Disco, Slow-soul, or Rhythm and Blues then I apologize profusely for your parents, and possibly their parents lack of instilling you with a sense of nostalgia over what music was "true" in their lives.
The entirety of the album Random Access Memories is an Irony that should NOT be overlooked or underwritten. In this age of technology where any dead-beat door mouse or skilless Rid-X teen with access to a computer can be a musician with Wubs, Dubs, Subs, Drops, and what have you... or a person with a camera and a meat-dress or makeup caked on like the face of the earth can become a 1-lining superstar....
Two robots.... TWO ROBOTS... have brought more humanity back to music than the humans trying to futurize it. Two robots have brought back not just the music of the parties of late Seventies but also the slow remorseful soul of the Eighties and the love-making Rhythm and Blues of the Nineties. They have taken what humanity has shed from itself and in an almost humanistic feat of Nostalgia have transformed it into something that reminds us all old enough to remember or appreciate the music of our past... the Humanity that we've lost.
