This album has a certain beauty that puts you in a completely different state of mind.
The music is harder, darker, and filled with a broader range of emotion than Daft Punk has previously expressed. The opening track, "Human After All," becomes progressively more tense and seems to speak of a desperate search for identity in a cold world where technology is dehumanizing us, and I would call it my favourite Daft Punk song of all time. This theme continues into tracks like "Television Rules The Nation."
There are some dancey, active tracks as well, such as "Robot Rock" and the better known "Technologic" that flows like a well-oiled machine.
Tracks such as "Steam Machine" and "The Brainwasher" are harsh and busy like faceless cities where people are all plugged into their electronics and completely disconnected from what they were born with inside.
Then there are soft songs that surprised me, "Make Love" and "Emotion." These are dream-like melodies that reminiscent of simple times and memories that bring us hope on lonely nights while also reminding us that we are imperfect and in need of love.
"Human After All" is not something you can play at a party. It is something you can zone out on, something that can put you in another world. It is something to listen to while you are drawing or writing, while driving alone at night, while staring up at your ceiling in your room and wondering if you're the only person alive. It is a powerful, introverted, emotional work and deserves another listen or two before you throw it back on the shelf.
That has always been the magic of Daft Punk.
