Daft Punk's Human After All Phase
As with all musical performers, their style of music and theory will change as they progress further into their musical career. This is very much true for the popular electronic punk duo called Daft Punk. The one factor that differentiates the duo from other music groups is the fact that they have several years of hiatus in between their albums. While this is a bit of a teaser for fans, the payoff is well worth the wait.
Daft Punk's current phase is known as the "Human After All phase". It began in 2004, when the group took six weeks to create brand new material. The duo then released the album Human After All in March of 2005. The critic's reviews varied, with some saying that the songs were repetitive or rushed. The singles on the album included "Human After All," "Technologic," "Robotic Rock," and "The Prime Time of your Life." When the members of Daft Punk were asked about the reviews released by critics, they replied: "we believe that 'Human After All' speaks for itself."
After the Human After All album, Daft Punk released an anthology CD and DVD that is titled Musique on April 4th, 2006. The CD/DVD combo presents music videos for "The Prime Time of Your Life" single and "Robot Rock." In addition, the duo released a remix album for Human After All that is a limited edition.
Daft Punk dabbled in the film industry in 2006, with their first directed film called "Electroma." The film was shown at the Cannes Film Festival. The film does not include Daft Punkís music, which is truly a first for the group considering their previous animated films. The critic's comments about the film were very positive.
The latest album released by the duo is titled Alive 2007. It was released on November 19th of 2007, and includes the groupís live performances from their Paris shows. After their Alive 2007 tour, Daft Punk announced that they were going to step out of the spotlight for a while to work on other projects. In a recent interview with their manager, it was stated that Daft Punk had returned to Paris to work on new music material. Their manager has also stepped down as their manager to work on his own record label. Winter did state in a later interview that Daft Punk is currently being managed by a company in Los Angeles.
