Product Description

Amazon.ca

Solely responsible for the current interest in all things funky and French, the Daft Punk boys, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, can do no wrong. Breaking into the club scene with their own blend of techno-disco in 1995, their debut album is the 80's electro-funk record of your dreams. Influenced by old school Chicago house and Detroit minimalist techno (all name checked on "Teachers"), Homework ranges from the warped electro that has become their trademark on "Around the World" and "Da Funk", to banging acid techno on "Rollin'and Scratchin'" and "Alive". An album so funky it could make James Brown cry, and with so much bite you can feel it at the back of your throat. --Ed Potton

4.0 out of 5 stars DAFT PUNK ROCKS! July 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
When I bought this album I listened to it and was amazed. I love the songs on this album. Here is a list on a scale 1 to 10.
Daftendirekt-10/10 (Solid beginning, nice beat.)
WDPK 83.7 FM- 8/10 (Sounds good, a little short but good.)
Revolution 909- 10/10 (Awesome song. Like the beat.)
Da Funk- 10/10 (Excellent. This is probably the best.)
Phoenix- 9/10 (I like it, but it can't beat the others.)
Fresh- 9/10 (Like Phoenix, good but doesn't get 10.)
Around the World-10/10 (One of the best, it gets stuck in my head all the time, even after not listening to it for awhile, iy always finds it's way back inside my head.)
Rollin' & Scratchin'-8/10 (Some people say this one bites the dust, but I say it's only for the true DJ. I like the scratching, but this one is a little too long. Solid 8.)
Teachers- 6/10 (It was hard to rate this one. After listening to it over and over, I decided that the background sounds together deserved a 9, but the weird voices drops it 3. Still trying to get used to this one.)
High Fidelity- 8/10 (I liked this one, but I don't know what it is, this is just a little bit less than the rest.)
Rock & Roll- 8/10 (This is another one that goes a little unliked. I would say that is because it's a little too long, and a little repeative, like Rollin' & Scratchin'. I still liked it though, but it is a little long.)
Oh Yeah- 8/10 (I like the beat of this one, but those kids saying "Oh Yeah" brings it a down a couple points. I still like this one though.)
Burnin'- 7/10 (I like it, but it just doesn't quite have what the others have, so I give it a 7.)
Indo Silver Club- 9/10 (I love this one. Not exactly a 10, but it's close. Great for dance clubs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Teachings of The Old School March 8 2004
By ToS.InC
Format:Audio CD
Daft Punk's debut Homework, is without a doubt one of the most essential albums to own in the genre of Electronica. It has undisputedly revolutionized House music and is considered one of the most influential recordings in the Techno world. The two singles here (Around The World and Da Funk) are responsible for epitomizing dance music for the mainstream audience.
Daftendirekt - 8/10 A rather strong beginning. Decent samples and beats. Leads directly into the next track.
WDPK 83.7 FM - 6/10 Extremely short. Not much purpose since "Daftendirekt" already serves as an intro.
Revolution 909 - 9/10 One of the most solid tracks in this disc. Simple, straight forward, yet effective. Genuine dance music with an emphatic base beat.
Da Funk - 10/10 This song is simply ground breaking, the peak of Homework's success. Perfect acid drops juxtaposed against an ingenious rhythm. Unquestionably Daft Punk at its best.
Phoenix - 9/10 The beats are absolutely intoxicating. The audience will be utterly lost in the enchanting baseline. One of the highlights of Homework.
Fresh - 6/10 Average. The sound of water falls tends to get a bit tedious over time.
Around The World - 10/10 The second best song on Homework. Length is a little long, a few conversions would have made it much better. Still, an unforgettable masterpiece.
Rollin' & Scratchin' - 3/10 Loud, overly repetitive, obnoxious.
Teachers - 8/10 Just as innovative and inspirational Daft Punk is considered to up and coming DJs, the guys pay tribute here to the pioneers before them. Very original, amusing, and done in good taste.
High Fidelity - 7/10 Average. A fair effort.
Rock 'N Roll - 2/10 The lowest point on this disc. Incredibly abrasive. Complete filler. Skip.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Funkadelik...whatever that means... Feb. 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've listened to Daft Punk since 1998. That's like 6 years so far. The new album, Daft Club (Basically a remix album) was kind of so-so. Discovery was great. But the first DP...HOMEWORK ruled! My fav tracks on it is ''Around the World'' and ''Teachers''. 'Teachers' is weird, but the music is pretty darn good. Anyways, here is how I thought about ''Homework'':
1) Daftendirekt - 9/10 - Very good beginning and end. Enjoyable. You'll like it.
2) WDPK 83.7 FM - 8/10 - Extremly short, but okay.
3) Revolution 909 - 8/10 - This song reminds me of Da Funk. It's good.
4) Da Funk - 9/10 - Great track. Good music video, too.
5) Phoenix - 5/10 - So-so
6) Fresh - 6/10 - Awkward. But, it beats 'Phoenix'.
7) Around the World - 10/10 - Perfect song. I really loved it!
8) Rollin' & Scratchin' - 3/10 - Flat out, blew the album.
9) Teachers - 10/10 - Funny. Weird. Insane. Cool.
10) High Fidelity - 9/10 - No comments. Because it is that good.
11) Rock 'N Roll - 0/10 - No comments. Because it is that crappy.
12) Oh Yeah - 10/10 - Loved it alot. But, not one of my favorites.
13) Burnin' - 7/10 - I dunno.
14) Indo Silver Club - ?/10 - Never heard it.
15) Alive - 8/10 - Cool song.
16) Funk Ad - 8/10 - Sort of like Da Funk. Rewinding it though.
Thanx for reading my review! =^ ^=

5.0 out of 5 stars An Instant Classic Album for Eons to come. Jan. 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
Whaaa!!! Yeah!!!
Homework is all good. Homework is mostly Techno, but even those who hate Techno will like Homework because it is catchy and revolutionary as other reviewers have already reported. Homework actually made Techno mainstream for awhile and the beats will have you up and dancing around in no time.
To be honest I flung their other album Discovery out the window. I was totally disappointed that they had gone for 70s retro music instead of sticking to what they do best - catchy techno tunes that evolve the industry, however people might like that other one but I certainly did not.
Homework is probably one of the all time great Techno albums if not the greatest techno album of all time. It can easily sit beside Paul Oakenfold's Traceport as the best electronica/trance/techno/dance album out there but Oakenfold would probably be second best because he was just a DJ and these boys cooked up their own tracks.
In fact Homework stands out in a world of its own. It is almost like a compilation of all the best techno tunes but is in fact all original tunes from a very original duo.
This is a must for any collection. Even classical music listeners will throw this one on for the sheer originality of it all. Yes, Beethoven and Mozart would be proud!
