About this album

“Human After All” is the third studio album by French duo Daft Punk, first released on March 14, 2005 internationally and a day later in the United States. With it, Daft Punk apply Minimalism and rock music to their French house musicstyle. It received mixed reviews noting its reported six-week creation, which is particularly short compared to previous albums Discovery and Homework.

Conception

The Japanese edition of the album artwork features a quote from Daft Punk stating: “We believe that Human After All speaks for itself.” In a later statement, Daft Punk considered Human After All to be the favorite of their three studio albums and regard it as “pure improvisation.” The album’s brief creation and minimal production had been decided upon beforehand as counterpoint to their previous album.As Thomas Bangalter stated, “We were definitely seduced at the time by the idea of doing the opposite of Discovery.” Human After All was created mainly with two guitars and without synthesizers.Furthermore it was produced in two weeks and mixed in four, a session in sharp contrast to their older material.

Bangalter has stated that the album is an attempt to discover where human feelings reside in music. He later commented that “we felt like the third album was about this feeling of either fear or paranoia… not something intended to make you feel good”.

    I actually like this album. Even if it isn't their best one, it doesn't mean it's shit. [2]

    The first two tracks at least build towards something, everything else is monotonous.

    Can't believe I hated this album at one point... It's just as groovy as Discovery imo, just in a much less poppy way.

    I can get the hate this album has but I think it's far from a horrible release by the group. Granted it doesn't hold it's own against Homework or Discovery or even RAM because they're so polished but I think this album does have its own merits. When you consider it took only 6 weeks as opposed to the years of other albums I think it's a decent album. Competent and harshly criticized because of how amazing the previous 2 albums were. It's an entirely different concept and approach to the process. It also has several of my favourite songs on it.

    Far from their best, but definitely underrated.

    You can't even compare the production between Discovery and RAM to this. It just sounds so cheap in comparison. The others are so much more polished and the tracks flow much better. Hard to imagine this wasn't their first release.

    The main reason why I barely like this album is how bad the mastering is (Everything is so loud).

    I don't understand why everyone bitches about this album. Main complain I hear is that it's repetitive as hell but that is not a valid complain for a Daft Punk album, especially if you praise the piece of shit that was Homework.

    A lot of idiots in this shoutbox who seem threatened by the fact that some people apply critical thinking and analysis to music. The "shut up and enjoy the music!" brigade makes me sick. You bunch of anti-intellectual proto-fascist dicks.
