Alive is about the only Daft Punk tune I would say is any cop.
In retrospect, okay. But c'mon. Stardust was the track for quite some time; as in THE Track. The Trax On Da Rox stuff is still good if not a tad hyper. Sure, they took the filter thing too far but they did it better than anyone.
I guess that's the frustration with my earlier post. They are/were fantastic at what they do - love it or leave it. But the praise they get for their past is just revisionist and frankly not true; especially here in the States (yeah, yeah - we all know). The same people erecting themselves over the new album blasted, or ignored, great dance music for years and couldn't be fussed with Human After All (not that I blame them) 'cause they were too busy being depressed listening to Postal Service and drinking 4$ coffee (not mutually exclusive, I'm sure).
