Why are you doing a video review ? discogs is for tunes son - he explains the idea behind the robots at the start of the video and the title of the track may be a clue - i think the answer to the question 'but why ?' is obvious - beyonces dances were busy at the time - lol

After the initial "hey that's kinda cool" factor evaporates (about 3 and a half minutes into the YouTube video for "Sad Robot Goes Funny") it becomes a lot of wankery.
Sure you can do it, but why?
It's just going from a group of small metal boxes (sequencers, loopers, effects pedals and computers) to larger, much more elaborate and expensive metal machinery- playing music.
Digital anthropomorphizing is becoming high comedy.
Don't get me wrong, I like the music.
But why spend hundreds of thousand of dollars to build a robotic orchestra/band to play it back?
