With "Homework", Daft Punk (Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo & Thomas Bangalter) brought us one of the most memorable dance albums of the decade, and, after a four-year abscence, returned to the limelight with "Discovery". Keeping the catchy rhythms of their 1997 debut, "Discovery" adds more to the Daft Punk repetoire. For example, the brilliant opener "One More Time" uses a proper full on vocal track, as do other songs later in the album, and they seem to get more emotional than their robotic debut, with the beuatiful melodies of "Something About Us" and the hook-tastic "Digital Love" (also using some superb vocals). But, there's also room in there for their traditonal experimental side - the incredible guitar solo of "Aerodynamic" will leave you speechless, and the 'factory-style' "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" is a definite pulse-raiser, and the anthemic "Superheroes" just begs for that 'one more listen'. Of course, with all albums, it's bound to have downsides (but significantly less than their 2005-follow-up, "Human After All"), yet only one track seems to bear this name - the insidiously boring "Veridis Quo", a six-minute-a-thon that does nothing but extend the album's running time. Of course, there's still much better things - the 'video-game' keyboard spike of "Short Circuit" rockets along like nobody's business and the incredible closer "Too Long" has yet another stunning vocal track. So, it may be lacking the robotic charm of "Homerwork", but by God, I'm not going to sit here and watch this album get slaughtered by these critics - "Discovery" is an undeniably brilliant acheivement (just save those nasty comments for "Human After All", right?) and deserves a place in everyone's collection.
