  Music Daft PunkRandom Access MemoriesDaft Life/Columbia "Give life back to music."  This clear and measured statement opens Daft Punk's colossal new album.  For a group that has spent all of their career in masks and have fashioned an aura of being robotic representatives to electronic music, this seems like an odd name for a song.  But with the stunning Random Access Memories they have done just that.

Considering he doesn't do much solo production himself anymore, the man still has an ear for what sounds good. From the plucking strings of the Hudson Mohawke-produced, R.
