A team of psychologists has released a report examining the public’s response to the underwhelming, Random Access Memories, by Daft Punk.
The study surveyed one hundred Daft Punk fans and while most agreed that the album was ‘meh’, they found that a small percentage claimed they ‘thought [the album] was better than Discovery,’ an assertion which psychologists have identified as ‘talking out of your arse.’
Study leader Dr. Brendan Cummings claimed, ‘This is a textbook case of trauma induced delusion – in which the person will try to overcome the traumatic feelings by claiming the complete opposite to be true. It’s like your girlfriend has gotten hugely fat but you choose to believe the opposite in spite of what your friends say. Daft Punk are essentially fat, past their best, girlfriends but the people claiming to love the album can’t see that.’
