Hey Bob I’m looking at what Jack was talking about, and it’s definitely not a particle that’s nearby.

It is a bright object and it’s obviously rotating because it’s flashing, it’s way out in the distance, certainly rotating in a very rhythmic fashion because the flashes come around almost on time.

As we look back at the earth it’s up at about 11 o'clock, about maybe ten or twelve diameters.

I don’t know whether that does you any good, but there’s something out there.

But it’s also that by releasing a record we can do interviews and tell people that they can do it for themselves,“ adds Guy-Man, suddenly maintaining eye contact with a journalist for the first time in the history of newsprint.
—  New Musical Express magazine, April 12, 1997
Eventually, in desperation, I ask Guy-Man if he agrees with Thomas last answer. “Yes,” he says witheringly. “If I disagree I will tell you.” I ask him why he’s stayed silent. “Silence is better,” he shrugs, and Thomas laughs.

Nick’s Favourite Music of 2013
DAFT PUNK - CONTACT
[Spotify]

That’s right. It’s not “Get Lucky”. I can’t deny how damn good that song is or, come to think of it, every song on Random Access Memories is. “Touch”, “Instant Crush” and “Motherboard” have all been big favourites for me this year, and the album has been far-and-away my favourite of the year.

But when it came to picking just one song from that album (a self-imposed rule for these lists), one thing became clear:
There’s “Contact”, and then there’s everything else.

I listen to a lot of music, and I’m lucky that I end up quite liking most of the stuff I hear. But this means that the likelihood of finding something that I have a really strong positive reaction to is almost as rare as a unicorn.
And “Contact” is a big, big, fucking unicorn of a song.

I mostly listen to music when I’m walking somewhere, at a leisurely pace. Whenever “Contact” comes on my iPod, it doesn’t matter what speed I’m actually walking at; I feel like I’m running.
My heartbeat quickens, my breathing becomes deeper, my footsteps get lighter. And all because this song features the greatest build to a crescendo I have ever heard.

It’d be wrong of me to pinpoint the moments that matter. You’ll know ‘em when you hear 'em.

This song is like a trip into space, and it’s little wonder that people on YouTube have been pairing the music with footage of 2001 (but, mystifyingly, not Contact. I mean, clearly that’s the better reference, right? They have the same title and everything! (See that film)).

This is a song that has one simple trick up its sleeve, and its grand enough for that one manoeuvre to give me goosebumps. This is the musical equivalent of a heavenly tunnel bathed in multicoloured light.
You can practically hear the synthesizers that made the music having to catch their breath once the song finishes.
I hear this, and think I understand the emotions that people went through when Pink Floyd dropped Dark Side of the Moon back in 1973.

This is prog, done in a way that only Daft Punk (assisted by DJ Falcon and Omar Hakim) could provide us.
And it’s the best thing I heard all year.

Winner of this year’s 'Best Album Ever’ award
[Last year’s winner]
