Product Description

Daft Punk quickly rose to acclaim in 1993 by adapting a love for first-wave acid house and techno to their younger roots in pop, indie rock, and hip-hop. The combined talents of DJs Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter as Daft Punk have been responsible for the most memorable and genre-defying house hits of the last decade. Musique Vol 1 1993-2005 offers for the first time their collected singles and several rare remixes. Virgin. 2006.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect. Oct. 31 2006
By Lord Aäkon Këëtrëh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
To me, Daft Punk represents the best in electronic/house music. For novices this is a great way to get into a band that I feel is often overlooked. Perhaps because electronic music nowadays isn't really being listened to that much. Back in the mid to late 90's electronic music acts such as Daft Punk, Prodigy, Chemical Brothers and Basement Jaxx were flying high because the music was in style, today it's sort of an acquired taste. Given most of these bands material of late isn't up to par, including Daft Punk themselves. Before 'Human After All' came out I honestly didn't think these guys were capable of making a less than stellar album. I was proven wrong.

For all the backlash 'Human After All' gets it's not by any means terrible, but just simply not as good as Homework and Discovery. However, the sound of a dwindling fanbase must've been deafening to the record label. So the time was right to release this 'best of' compilation in order to reel in new fans since the "old" ones probably have gone off to greener pastures ( i.e. LCD Soundsystem). We get introduced to a lost classic from the earliest stage of the band, Musique, a b-side to the first single 'Da Funk' and a pleasant surprise to those who haven't heard it. The next batch of songs are very familiar to fans and somewhat to fairweather fans, now my only gripe is something I noticed others have had a similar complaint about, and that is "why isn't Digital Love and Aerodynamic included?". Now those two tracks were singles and to me the fact that those are not there takes away one star from this rating. Since you want to give novices a chance to get the "best of" of a band, you must put in the "best tracks", makes sense right? I would've taken out Human After All and Something About Us, basically because the quality of the previous tracks outweigh these. A nice addition is the inclusion of three remixes from the Daft Club release, good choices too. Overall, you have pretty much the meat and potatoes of an excellent group that deserves better recognition and this proves why.

4.0 out of 5 stars Musique mix 2006. Nov. 24 2008
By K. Davidson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a basic mix of Daft Punk. Over the years... if you've heard it, but never owned one, this is a great starter CD into a new world. I recommend watching "Interstella 5555" this will explain everything. Its on youtube. then buy them all as you fall in LOVE.. other then that- there's a lot of the same songs here as on all the other cds combined.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just Buy Their Full Lengths.. May 6 2010
By M. Nielson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Daft Punk are a great electronic group who have taken their influences and combined them into some truly trend-setting albums. Though, if you subtract the live albums, the bootlegs, Daft Club *shudder*, and the anime movie.. all you've got is three studio albums. Just three. And the first two are full masterpieces, while Human After All is more or less tolerable depending on the listener. Definitely more of a Kraftwerk and Lou Reed's "Metal Machine Music" influence than the other two LPs.

Anyway, you're looking at 30+ tracks they've produced that are more than worth owning.. yet they feel the need for a compilation album? Hopefully it wasn't their idea, probably some greedy music execs who realized they couldn't ride out the fumes of Discovery for much longer. Still, I wouldn't even suggest this cd for Daft Punk newbies as they'd have more fun overall with Discovery. I mean, heck, Face to Face isn't even on here and that's probably their greatest song ever! They could have easily switched Face to Face out with Something About Us since the latter isn't the greatest track.

You owe it to Daft Punk, and yourself, to just buy their three proper albums, decide which songs you like or not, and make your own compilation. It's easy enough to buy the 'rare' tracks later on off of itunes if you really feel the need to further butcher the idea that compact discs and Vinyl are outdated. (I'll never give up my CD's NEVER!)

5 stars for (most of the music), 2 stars for the rest of the music and the crappy attempt at cashing in which I'm sure worked.

5.0 out of 5 stars Musique, Vol. 1 1993-2005 Oct. 23 2009
By Philip Masiakowski - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With only three main studio albums, the French house duo Daft Punk releases a compilation album to remind us of their greatest strength--massive singles. And indeed, the hits are here. "Da Funk," "Around the World," "Technologic," and the irresistible "One More Time" are all included, and they pack just as much punch as they did several years ago. Other classics in the Daft Punk community like "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger," and "Robot Rock" may never have gotten quite the level of widespread attention of the former but are equally as good (as Kanye West and Chris Brown came to realize).

Heavy emphasis is placed on debut album Homework with six song selections, whereas the other two albums--and the remix section at the end of the album--receive only three spots each. But Homework was probably their most beloved and memorable album, even if Discovery had the pop hits (two of which, "Aerodynamic" and "Digital Love," are oddly missing) and Human After All had its moments. The remixes at the end, particularly "Mothership Reconnection," are fairly good, though they may be forgettable to the casual listener.

Word for the wise: Daft Punk has worked their magic through 5+ minute, repetitive but driving house music. So for the dance music lover, this is a must-have greatest hits package. Just know what you're getting into. If you simply like a couple of the popular songs on here and don't really do dance music much, giving the album an entire listen may be boring if not impossible. But for the rest of us, this should keep our batteries charged long after the humans are in bed. (2006, Virgin)

5.0 out of 5 stars Da Finest!!! April 12 2006
By JBizzle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
If you're like me, you've already got everyone of these tracks and remixs on Daft Punk's various albums, DVD's & singles. So you ask yourself "Why should I buy this album when I've already got all these tracks?" Well, with this collection you get the best of DP's tracks all on one disc. Whether you've been a fan like me over the years, or if you've just discovered them this collection definately does the Punk's right. This CD/DVD will make a worthy entry in anyones collection. Even if you don't think you know Daft Punk, I can almost garuntee that you do. With tracks like "Around The World", "Da Funk", "One More Time" & the now just as classic "Human After All" it's a safe bet you've heard them at least once in your life time before.
