Random Access Memories ~ Daft Punk

I'm a huge fan of Daft Punk and have been for the past decade or so. It's been a long wait for us since Human After All was released back in 2005 to mixed reviews but I have to say it's been 100% worth it. This is not only the best album of the year but a strong contender for album of this century!!
Every track on this stunning album is mesmerising with it's tune playing through my mind for the rest of the day. The album, however, is a definite change for the duo, and a bold one at that.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Year Early, 11 Dec 2012
I, as I'm sure many of you were, was very exited about this game coming out and pre-ordered it based on trailers and general hype. However I must warn you this is by far the worst game I've played in at least 3 years and is bitterly disappointing. I'll explain why.
Firstly the positives;
The premise to the game sounds fantastic; Play as the world's greatest spy in all of your favourite Bond movies and moments including Gold Finger, Moonraker, Die Another Day, etc. I couldn't wait to relive the classic laser torture scene from Gold Finger or the shuttle launch in Moonraker. I must make clear that the writers have done a pretty good job. The plot and script is really very good, the… Read more
