Product Description


The French twosome behind Daft Punk, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo, get away with an awful lot. They go around impersonating aliens and robots in their interviews, they put records out only once every three years, and they make music that evokes a million other artists--while not really sounding like any of them. The keyboard noodlings of Jean-Michel Jarre are in there somewhere, along with the otherworldly imagery and giant hooks of '70s rock icons like Boston or even Electric Light Orchestra. There are dashes of 1999-era Prince and oodles of new wave and disco cheese, from Harold Faltermeyer and Gary Numan to the Bee Gees, all set off with efficient house beats. So how have they managed to position themselves as electronic music's next great crossover artists? On Discovery, the follow-up to the 1998 worldwide smash Homework, the answer is obvious: they have no shame, and they know how to make us dance.

Starting off with the irresistibly hummable "One More Time," the record blows through a head-spinning array of styles and samples, creating a pop-culture stew of funky loops and dance-floor anthems. "Aerodynamic" eschews breakbeats for an Yngwie Malmsteen-ish guitar interlude that somehow ends up meshing in a crazy blend of stomping bass lines and hyped-up harmonics. "Digital Love" starts off silly and gets sillier, but the monosyllabic lyrics lull the senses just right, allowing the song's summery groove to grab hold with authority. "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" is a resounding standout amidst the retro/Vocoder deluge that transpired after Cher's Believe turned the kitchy disco device into a worldwide pop music trend, spinning a clever groove around an ever-escalating string of computerized seduction. Everywhere on the record, gigantic beats are dropped with pinpoint precision, giving songs a momentum that transforms repetitive melodies into sudden revelations. The record's only misstep, the aptly named "Short Circuit" utilizes a keyboard riff that is nails-on-a-chalkboard awful, but it can't keep this from being one of the best records of 2001. --Matthew Cooke

5.0 out of 5 stars The groups best July 3 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is hands down Daft Punk's best CD. Where else can you find techno music that contains elements of Supertramp, Eddie Van Halen and a creative Barry Manelow sample? This really isn't techno, it really isn't dance, it's just really good music. A must buy.
Oh and as requested, I want to recommend another instrumental CD, a killer instrumental CD, by Mr.Deviant called "Techno Obsession". It's a killer mix of power rock and hard dance music. Check it out if you don't fear any conspiracies.

Daft Punk has the best rhythms and beats. They have uplifting songs that although are repetitive in nature, seems really hip and freshing. one more time is the ultimate classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Renowned Classic! April 15 2013
By Ryo
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Discovery is by far probably one of the most celebrated French house album in existence, only beaten by Homework by the same dynamic duo. Daft Punk is still cool no matter how many eons have passed. Their visions have surpassed the Voyager, which has nearly passed the realm of human imagination into a never-ending void of space. Space is where anything can happen, and the thing that happened is Discovery. Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem Christo did an amazing job in making this album happen. The way each track as compiled together is anything but short of a miracle. These, people, are what you call professionals. They are chefs, who piece together appetizers, entrée, and desserts in a harmonious way that makes them dance on the tips of your tongue. The cover is so well thought out, that any design sympathizers would melt like the metal on the cover. I would totally recommend this to all fans of House music and music connoisseurs. This is the new world. This is the future. This is Daft Punk.

5.0 out of 5 stars veritas April 30 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Honestly, I tend to like house and think this sort of techno is good to listen to but not good music. However, this Daft Punk album is undisputedly fun to listen/dance to, and actually a very skillfully done blend. My favorites are Veridis quo-meaningfully melodic- and Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger-insane robot voice

5.0 out of 5 stars For best results.......... April 26 2004
Format:Audio CD
...One really needs to watch the movie Interstella 5555 to put this album into proper context. Amazon should be offering the movie and the album as a package deal, instead of coupling it with their first album. I myself never really appreciated what a technical masterpiece this album really is. Now that I've the right context this record seems just amazing. Unfortunately I was initially too obtuse to really hear what was going on with the tracks because I wanted a cd with a little bump while I was driving. Right now it's the only album I can listen to. I guess I just love Vocoders. Watch the movie, buy the record.
