#292 – TRON: Legacy by Daft Punk

Once again, I must divert from the theme of Black History Month in recognition of today’s announcement of the breakup of Daft Punk.  There can be no dispute about the influence of this prolific duo, who are probably as responsible for the rise of EDM’s popularity as anyone.  For people around my age, they were the biggest artists of their genre during our high school years, and the ones who brought techno to mainstream pop culture.  I can’t help but think that, like so many others, they will eventually make a comeback, the excitement about which will propel them back to the top of the music industry.  Of course, as legendary producers, their influence will continue to be felt for as long as they care to flex it.  This album, the score for the film TRON: Legacy, is obviously not a traditional album of theirs, but it’s the only one I hadn’t heard before, so here we are.  It also makes me think I should actually sit down and watch the film, but I’m not sure how likely that will be.
