MUSIC: Daft Punk, Random Access Memories

The French duo’s first studio album in eight years isn’t the balls-out party record some fans hoped for — so don’t expect another “Around the World” or “One More Time” here. It is, however, a hypnotic musical love letter to late’70s-early ’80s electropop that inspired them and features dazzling collaborations with Julian Casablancas, Pharrell Williams and Paul Williams (!), plus there’s the track “Giorgio By Moroder,” which offers an ode to the great electronic music pioneer.
