If you're familiar with the Apple iPod commercials with the cool tunes and the crazy black dancers on pastel backgrounds (or if you've gone so far as to try and reenact the commercials in real life) then you're probably familiar with the song "Feel Good Inc" by Gorillaz. If you're up-to-date, you probably have heard the song that recently replaced "Feel Good Inc," Daft Punk's "Technologic."

"Technologic" is a great, funky electronic tune that suits the iPod commercials perfectly. However, "Technologic" is simply the tip of the ice berg in terms of what Daft Punk's latest album, Human After All has to offer.

Some albums take a few listens before they really start to click (Coldplay's latest album, X&Y, for example, is still digesting), but such is not the case with Daft Punk's latest effort. More often than not, the 3rd track on an album is the strongest (kinda like a baseball lineup...it's strange), and this definitely holds true with "Robot Rock," one of the coolest electronic songs I've heard in a long time. That song could not be more aptly named.

"The Prime Time of Your Life," which at times reminds me of the unpredictable sounds of an electric guitar being plugged in and unplugged, and the album's title track are also solid productions that make "Human After All" a tie for the must-have electronic album of the year. If you don't know what the other one is, then maybe you should look into that.
