Daft Punk’Random Access Memories is so indebted to the past that you don’t even have to listen to the album to listen to the album. Yeah, nerds like to play music taxonomy with bands, but it’s rare that a record this good comes along and culls from everything from ’80s yacht rock to musical theatre. The word “random” in the title never felt so fitting when you have Giorgio Moroder giving an interview over some jazz fusion on the same album that Panda Bear sings on a disco funk track. So if you want to listen to Random Access Memories but you don’t want to actually listen to it performed by Daft Punk (well, with one exception), you can listen to this mix instead: Random Alternate Memories. –Jeremy D. Larson

Motherboard, not Mothership. God: don’t write an article if you’re going to half-ass it.

Oh, and Listen to “Contact,” then listen to “Human After All.” Do this over and over until you realize that they’re nothing alike.

I thought “Touch” had similarities to Phantom -
