Product Description

Amazon.ca

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 - Discovery
Este es el disco de Daft Punk clave... despues de Homework, un trabajo excepcional pero aun con algunos tropiezos en su desarrollo. Llega Discovery. Este no es solo un disco dance, sino que es una vision galactica que trata de contarnos a traves de sus videos "one more time", "aerodynamic", "harder, better, faster, stronger" y "something about us" que si existiese otra banda lejos del universo seria increiblemente raptada y lavada del cerebro para hacernos felices a los adolescentes y porque no adultos terrestres. El disco es una obra de arte, ingenioso, aunque con mucha influencia de los años disco de los 70's y 80's, aunque con una base de rock alternativo difusamente alterado postmodernista electro funk y secuencias de raros paisajes galacticos. Si lo escuchas detenidamente te daras cuenta de la historia y momentos que te relatan con la musica, me fascinan discos como este puesto que llevan una secuencia entre la musica y no termina una cuando ya empieza la otra. Entre los tracks contamos con algunos sonidos clasicos y basicos que se hallan en la historia de la banda, si es que sabes de ellos, y para los que no, pues lo siento. Pero se encuentran joyas preciosas y de tipo ambient muy muy gozables como "aerodynamic", "something about us" y "voyager", las oscuras como "night vision", "veridis quo", las bailables como "one more time", las suaves romanticas al estilo funk 70's como "digital love", "crescendolls", las expresivas emocionales como "face to face". en fin es un disco increible. no le hace falta nada a este disco. es perfecto. Podria decir que es el mejor disco de Daft Punk.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite boring!
I normally enjoy everything Daft Punk does, but I have to say... I really did not like this album very much! After homework I found this album too commercial! You can pass!

2.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Overrated
I've never understood the appeal of Daft Punk. "Around the World" is probably the only track by them that I like. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars maybe 4 1/2, just a few weak spots
I got this before I got Homework, an in spite of hearing One More Time on the radio (I say in spite of because the vocal work on this album by what's his name sucks). Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars accomplished, enjoyable...but not perfect
Daft Punk are clearly talented, ever since the irristbly infectious 'Homework' album they have quite rightfully taken their place among the dancehall/electronica elite. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars high quality techno/dance
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!
