The bf listened to part of Daft Punk's new Human After All this weekend and said to a friend, "You know how they used to loop 16 bars over and over? Now it's just 8." And sadly, he's so right. This album's got to be one of '05's more thudding disappointments so far - though it's interesting in a kind of drone sense, and as background, and were it harder could make for some pretty good techno ("The Brainwasher," f'instance, isn't all that far removed from Beltram). Don't misunderstand me, though; I'm definitely damning Human After All with this faint praise.
