I mean Daft Punk is just pretty much better faster and stronger than any of their contemporaries. So you know. End of discussion.

Funny enough, I had been linked to one of their music videos a few days ago and decided to listen up on the group. I'm not exactly crazy for them, but it's an interesting and different sound. Any tips for other bands/groups like these guys?

The bigger question is who doesn't like daft punk.
Though I must admit their older stuff is more dear to me. It just struck a good chord with my life at the time. :D

I find it is a band that you cant just like immediately. I listened to it for about a year before I realized how great they are.

Also Alive '07 is way better than '97.

Guh, I hate Daft Punk. Overrated and boring, repetitive music. Neat light shows. Bad costumes. Retro has stopped being ironically funny when it's handled the way they do it. Their movie (Interstellar something or another?) is stupid and badly animated and the music is lame.

Daft Punk is like what radiohead is to its crowd, except radiohead has a handful of really good songs, whereas Daft Punk is just one long regurgitated loop track of crap. I've never met anyone who actually listens to techno or trance and enjoys Daft Punk. They're to electronica and ACTUAL music what training wheels on a clacker Schwinn is to a custom built LeMond roadster.

actually, you are wrong.

I listen to trance/techno, as well as everything from Noisia to Fischerspooner on the electronic spectrum, and I like Daft Punk.

You're a bit alone in your opinion, which you can hold onto idc, just don't present it as objective.

Seems a bit subjective. He didn't say that electronica fans hate Daft Punk - just that he'd never met any.

"Better Faster Stronger" - still the best use of looped vocals in a techno song that I have ever heard. "Leyendecker" by Battles is a solid second.

me neither, because daft punk isn't techno or trance.

and what, in your mind, is the "electronica" (why anybody other than Madonna started using this term, I'll never know) that daft punk is the training wheels of?

edit: what is your opinion of kraftwerk

edit2: http://youtube.com/watch?v=0Mh2GDbc6N0 vocals are annoying as hell but eh, janet jackson sampling Homework is so cool/funny that i don't really mind the song. so now a sample from every daft punk album has been in a major hip hop/rap song. works for me! somebody needs to sample the bassline from around the world, or revolution 909 next.

Very over rated. Heard way better. Good stuff though. Not going to lie. I think Alive is good album to listen to for a party. And sex. But that's just me.

Hilights:

Da Funk. GREAT car riding music.
HBFS (Original, Alive 2007 version, and Deadmau5 Edit)
Around the World
Technologic. But not a fan of Touch It. I knew a girl who knew the *entire* lyrics to Technologic. Twas full of win.
Robot Rock

But seriously. There are better Djs. And better artists. This is poppy techno. Hence it's popularity. Pendulum deserves this kind of credit. But it's ok. ^^;.

Heaven knows that I don't mind repeating, loop-based stuff, but when I listen to electronic music I generally prefer something more melodic and emotive. The Knife is amazing (Check out "Silent Shout" for some really moody, multilayered stuff), LCD Soundsystem, and heavier stuff like Battles really get me. I never really got into Hot Chip, but I have "The Warning" and it's pretty good.

Ace bands that you recommended there, Clumpy :D. I really, really, REALLY want to witness Battles live. It's meant to be very intense. I also agree with the previous mentions of Digitalism, Justice etc for lovers of Daft Punk. Some do say they're a poor mans Daft Punk, but they have their own charm.

Anyway, yes. Mmm..Daft Punk. Love them. And, people..it's so obviously:

Discovery > Homework > Human After All.

Has anyone seen Interstella 5555? All the anime music videos of their Discovery album, but in order. It's quite cool. I tried watching their other film, Electroma, but I sort of...fell asleep. In my defense, it was late and the film is very slowpaced!
i dare you to take me on...

i'm sorry, it's just amusing to hear hot chip or battles described as heavy. They're good, Im enjoying the new album atm but they're fairly light imo

I wasn't really putting Hot Chip into the same category, just off to the side as an example of the genre that doesn't grab me as much. "Battles" is heavier in the sense that it's more beat-based and incorporates members from rock and metal genres who play fairly percussively. It's heavier than my other examples but by no means the heaviest examples of the genre.

If I'm going to listen to straight-up dance music I'll probably go the Industrial route and pop in some Rammstein. Orgy and Gravity Kills had isolated songs that I still love.

Aww, I was going to post this...

I hate how everyone I know listens to that Kanye West "Stonger" shit and comments on how awesome the background that "he made for the song" is. Then they've never heard of Daft Punk wheni tell them it's just sampled from one of their songs.

But yeah, great band.

.. of course, you realize Daft Punk just sampled the tune as well, right? So it's a remixed sample of a remixed sample, if you wanna get all technical 'bout it.

Thought I like what they do with their samples.

But that's a whole different issue, on when a tune composed of samples stops being a song of samples and starts being it's own entity.. that just happens to have a couple samples in it or whatever.

True. I would just expect a sample from a song released 7 years ago to be easily recognizable, whereas "Cola Bottle Baby," realesed sometime in the late 70s (I can't even find an exact date) I can understand not being known in a sample.

Worse than people thinking Kanye wrote Harder...a girl at my school heard Daft Punk's version and said "This is the shittest cover version I've ever heard".
Part of me died that day.
And I dunno about Homework, haven't got it, but Discovery certainly > Human After All.

Daft Punk manages a quite high listenability-per-repetitivity(-unit?).

But I do like LCD Soundsystem, Justice, Digitalism and Groove Armada more.

Also, see if you can get your hands on Breakwater's Release the Beast. S'good :)

And, as Clumpy mentions, The Knife is da bomb! (but..! Deep Cuts > Hannah med H > Silent Shout > The Knife )

You... know The Knife? Wow, that's a first. Usually I have to explain myself and make people listen to my iPod. They are awesome.

And Daft Punk is also. I can listen to it whenever, as long as it's not during a test because it urges me to move my body too much.
...and it is great sex music, mind you...
But i don't think anyone can claim something is better than something else in a general way because each person has a different/radically different taste. I like Sepultura as sleeping music (because my sister used to put it on during the night and i got used to sleeping while listening to it) and Sigur Ros (Takk to be precise) as stimulating, but a lot of people don't agree.

It's weird, you're not the first person who have told me that.
When I heard then for the first time i didn't really enjoy; after about a month or so i picked it up again and started listening more and more. Now i just love them to no end.

And this is completely off topic...
