"they are human after all"

Human After All, the highly anticipated third album from the French duo Daft Punk and only took six weeks to make.

The album begins with the Track Human After All which has a real electronic sound to it very similar to Kraftwerk, you will also instantly notice the use of electric guitars in the track all of which are preformed by Daft Punk, this helps to create a new sound to Daft Punk's music and this theme is continued throughout the album.

The track Human After All finishes with a crescendo of guitars, beats and robotic like vocals which sounds pretty cool and sets the standard for the rest of the album, this standard is followed in tracks two and three, The Prime Time Of Your Life and Robot Rock, but from track four onwards this is where the cracks start to appear and it shows that the album has only been made in six weeks.

The rest of the album then starts to sound all a bit familiar with similar guitar sounds as in the earlier tracks and in general a very repetative sound which could almost be mistaken for a demo. But as you think you have had enough and want to turn it off, Technologic kicks in and saves the day.

Technologic is a highly catchy tune with cheeky sounding vocals the beat then kicks in and the track is underway with a nice groove, towards the end of the track some guitars are used again and u fall in love with it.

The final track Emotion is similar to some of the tracks from their earlier album Discovery but unfortunatly it struggles to really break any boundaries, so overall i would not highly recomend this album but i would say give it a try, but definatly one for Daft Punk's die hard fans like myself.

    Your review leads me to think that you haven't even listened to the second half of the album. What about Emotion, Make Love, and The Brainwasher, addictiveness and catchiness are by no means signs of quality, just of good singles. Ed

    Again, a track list and price would be useful
