For me, the album is the one they've always wanted to do: an honest tribute to Italo disco. And in that vein, it's perfect. Then again, every Daft Punk album for me has always been "great track, great track, filler, filler, filler, filler, filler, filler, great track" or something to that effect.
Could not agree more, unfortunately most albums only have a couple of great songs. If there's an album where I like more than half of its songs, I immediately buy the album.
I'm afraid the whole itunes store generation is only going to make this worse. Good thing I never liked pop/top 40 music... I hope pirating music will actually improve the quality of music, since it's so easy to (p)review albums before buying them.
