Description

But that's just to smash you over the head: the Daft sound is also defined by warm, bassy synth lines, weaving their way liquidly through garage disco and house loops, all hot chocolate for the ears.

These guys can go on for hours about who their influences are, and in fact spend much of the album doing so. 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. When I heard that Leiji Matsumoto had created a full-length animated feature with stunning animation based on an ablum by Daft Punk, I just had to check it out. If you doubt the confidence of these Frenchies, how about the fact that the album starts off huge with the singles "One More Time" and "Digital Love" These are followed by "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger," one of the few songs that can make me do the full Woodman olympic-edition dance (another one is "Vibeology"). With no frills or fluff, every original track on their third album from 2001 appears here in crunching glory, not sounding an inch rougher or time-weathered.

It was also around this time the duo became robots shedding their previous human based presentation. In March 2001, the electronic duo released their second album discovery, a total of 14 tracks, driven by the hit singles one more time, aérodynamic, harder better faster stronger, digital love…a multi-platinum album. 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. Edit: turns out it should have been obvious to me but anyway I figured it out by looking at the record cover closer. 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.

Aptly, 'Discovery' was described by the duo as a reflection of their childhood memories, when they listened to music with a more innocent ear; 20 years on, Discovery can certainly be said to have lived up to that original inspiration. Take the luxurious "Something About Us," which uses a slowed-down Patrice Rushen type bassline under Quincy Jones guitar licks and an Air-y ambience before Serge Gainsbourg on a vocoder starts singing. In this case, it seemed more like the music video was just a distraction than an extension of the music. There's also the Moroder-like composition "Verdis Quo," the sequencing stutters of "Face to Face," cosmic disco looping "Voyager," etc etc. Nightvision” is a mellow, wordless, Quiet storm-meets-Eno soundscape, while in an interpolation sure to gain plenty of attention, “Superheroes” marries a Barry Manilow sample to an unrelenting house beat.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.

So I’ve got this 2 disc version of the Discovery Album, and it’s the same songs on both sides of one of the discs. Gatefold jacket with full printed paper inner sleeves including lyrics, credits and a photo of the band. Published by Edwin Birdson Music (ASCAP) and WB Music (ASCAP), performed by Edwin Birdsong, used by kind permission of Sony Music Entertainment.All the copies of 'Discovery' were released with a 'Daft Club' card included that permitted a web access to the Daft Club (Daftpunk. 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. We use cookies to give you the best possible experience on our site, provide personalised content and advertising, analyse our traffic, and ensure you see more of what you love. I love how shiny it is especially, there's nothing as great as owning a physical copy of an album you love so much in pristine, high quality condition.

The more you hear the songs, they more they grow on you, the more you get into them, the more you like them, the more you listen to them. Discovery is Daft Punk's best work in my opinion, and it was vital to me in developing my taste for Electronic music as a teenager. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. So, I didn’t own this on CD, nor do I have the original vinyl so I can only talk of this version but I’ve been waiting for this (and the re-release of homework) for ages.The most famous track on the album is probably Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger having been sampled by Kanye West. If you have a hard time listening to this start to finish, watch that movie and feel the music in a new way. After a spell of being aggravatingly out of print, Daft Punk's Discovery finally repressed on their own Daft Life imprint. Ultimately, Discovery is less of a mission statement than its predecessor, but no less danceable or listenable. Included is a sheet with a credit card with a "member personal access code"; expiration date 12/02, to be used at www.
