    Thanks! Though that looks to be a pre-order for the next pressing, which lists an "earliest shipping date" of June 21. Also, when I plug in my address, it lists the street name, followed by the house number, when it should be reversed. Think that will be a problem when they try to eventually deliver it??

    they were not very prolific anyway, been dormant or about 7 years ,last album was in 2013 with no live shows or anything, so weird time to announce split?
    they were amazing in the 1990s, Homework and Discovery are really really great records. Alive 1997 from their Homework tour is mindblowing i saw them in 2006, it was quite good, i never really liked anything they did after Discovery.
    Human After All from 2005 was ghastly, sounded like really repetitive coarse demo and i never got into RAM because it sounded so different from who they were before, like a radically different group, nothing remotely similar to Homework or Discovery. too deliberately retro
    i wish they had made more material though

    Yeah, agree with the sentiment, I don't mind when a band tries something new, but RAM sounds...boring? I don't care for that slow disco sound. Homework and Discovery are most excellent. Too bad I never saw them live!

    oh interesting...that wasn’t there when I placed my order. I wonder if they’re doing it now that they have a influx of orders coming in

    On the radio this morning, they said that since Daft Punk have announced their break-up, their streaming on music services have significantly increased by 5x

    Daft Punk Sales Soar 2,650% After Breakup
    Their streams have been up 500%, their song sales were up 1,335%, and their digital album sales shot up 2,650%. Also, prices for their albums on eBay and Discogs have gone through the roof. Good luck getting any of their albums for less than $100 right now. It's insane.

    Unpopular opinion but their best music was from the TRON score.

    I always wanted to see these guys live. After years and years of speculated festival slots and tours, I am sad I will never get to see them live. They were one of the bands left I never got to see.

    Also, Homework was their best record. IMO (also an unpopular one) they went downhill with each new record they released. However, I agree with @ninlive - their Tron score is legendary.

    not unpopular at all with me, I think Homework > Discovery > Human After All > RAM. So maybe it’s good they called it quits?

    The best thing to come out of Daft Punk's side work.

    "Music Sounds Better with You" is the only song by French house trio Stardust, released on 20 July 1998. Stardust comprised Thomas Bangalter from Daft Punk, DJ Alan Braxe,[a] and vocalist Benjamin Diamond;[b] they disbanded after the release and resumed separate careers.
    The single is a dance track built from a guitar riff sampled from the 1981 Chaka Khan song "Fate". It was initially released on Bangalter's label Roulé, followed by a wider release on Virgin Records, accompanied by a music video directed by Michel Gondry. It was one of the year's bestselling singles in the United Kingdom, where it debuted at number two in August 1998 and maintained the position for two weeks. It also spent two weeks atop the US BillboardDance Club Songs chart.

    According to Billboard, Virgin offered Bangalter $3 million to produce a Stardust album.[6] The group recorded more demos, but decided to keep the Stardust project to a single song. Braxe said there were no plans to release the demos, saying: "I think it gives the record a certain magic and mystery."[5] Apart from their performance at Rex Club, Stardust performed only once, in a 30-minute set at the Borealis festival in Montpellier, France.[6]
    One of the best disco house tracks ever made.

    I couldn't agree more! I wish we could have seen more from this project as that tune is timeless
