I've had the songs from the internet for several weeks now but I thought it wouldn't be fair to write a review 'till I bought my own copy (the album's just been released worldwide this very morning).
I'm not a Daft Punk fan, let's get that straight. I'm not that much into techno-music, certainly not into disco-funk. And I'm NOT giving this album 5 stars because continental (and more specifically French) music became HOT all of a sudden. Don't worry, Madonna knows what she's doing... Vive L'Europe ET les Etats Unis, prenons le meilleur des deux mondes!
'One More Time' In Europe we all know this track by heart, young and old: Eurodance with transformed vocals by Romanthony. It's really great but the rest of the album's better. Let's move on, now shall we... 'Aerodynamic' A song that consists of two parts: aggresive breakbeats and a really fast guitar solo with some synths. This track is MASSIVE! 'Digital Love' Pure guitar pop with filtered Daft Punk-vocals, folllowed by devastating breaks. Phoenix meets Supertramp. A 100% FM-summer hit! 'Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger' Filtered (again) disco-funk, but not to worry, their sound is ENORMOUS once again (nice 'contre-temps'). This is a clear stand-out track. Love it! 'Crescendolls' Extremely festive electro-house, a real party-track: a recurring gimmick, background voices with special effects and some filters. A Daft Punk-track like only Daft Punk can make 'em. 'Nightvision' Slow with mid-tempo rythms. It's a nice interlude. 'Superheroes' Pure Muscle Music. A mix of a hard house beat and a californian FM chorus, this is 'Star Wars' goes Disco. Easy but good. 'High Life' Real Daft Punk-voices brought up in crescendo. Simple plan but... MY GOD IT WORKS!!!!! 'Something About Us' Downtempo funk with some more delicious vocals by Thomas Bangalter.

Garage and dance music doesn't usually appeal to me, at all, but Daft Punk's now-classic dance album from 2002 is one of the expectations. 'Discovery' is something different, original, well-crafted and produced, and very uplifting. There's nothing overly 'cheesy' or particularly 'naff' on here, which are two words that spring to mind when I think about such music. These guys are talented musicians.

Highlights include the major hit 'One More Time' which always makes me smile and will get you in the mood for dancing, the rock-influenced 'Aerodynamiac', 'Digital Love', which is a ballad and that's rare for such an album, 'Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger' is another catchy single, and 'Face to Face' is another high point.

A nice, fun ride, 'Discovery' surprised me really, it's not bad at all.

I'll start by saying that I am no fan of dance music in general. I'm a rocker (anything from Toto, Boston thru Metallica) and guitarist .. but when I heard this album, I had to get it. Whoever made this stuff are obviously talented musicians, as well as being able to wield the samplers and sequencers very skillfully. The tracks are so infectious, and it takes me back to being a little kid when I'd just listen to cheesy pop tunes - and love it. This stuff is so much more original and well crafted than the usual cheesy dance stuff, that usually makes me want to puke. The pop, and rock influence is obvious. The keyboard playing in 'harder faster' is fantastic, and the guitar solo in the wonderful 'Digital Love' is one of my favourite ever (and I'm a Vai and Satriani fan) - WHO PLAYED IT!!? I particularly like the way they use the electronica to warp the sounds of their guitars and keyboards. O.K., I believe they're using other peoples stuff in samples, but they do it so cleverly.
All in all, I think ANYONE who likes a nice hook and tune can get off on this stuff, and have a bit of a boogie !!
P.S. I think I first heard this album on a Gap Jeans ad with that actress Juliette Lewis (natural born killers) dancing with the daft punk robots (was that the actual guys?) to Digital Love. And they used it on Match of the Day!! LoL!!

This is a beautiful belnd of electronica, samples and feel-goodness. The standout tracks are Too Long, One More Time and Crescendolls. The only dodgy track is Veridis Quo. I'm not quite sure how that track fits in with the rest of the album. Think funeral march with slow, drifting beat. There are other unique sounds - 70s and 80s electronica and wizardry mixed in with Euphoric House. Any self-proclaimed dance music fan should have this in their collection. It's been well worth the wait since 1997 and this album is more vocal-driven than 'Homework'.

Daft Punk, the ex French punk rockers turned funk/dance/acid producers and in my opinion are the most diverse and talented producers in dance music. Their first album Homework was no short of a cult classic with the smash 'Around The World' but Discovery takes their production to a whole other level. From the necking bending opener 'One More Time' right the way through to the 10 minute banger 'Too Long', the album maintains the a standard no other producers (in my opinion) have reached before. 'One More Time' is and energetic and horn filled banger and with bending vocals from New Jersey garage man Romanthony is nothing short of the floor filler of the year this album came (2001). 'Aerodynamic' shifts through fast paced funky guitars to all out electric guitar, back to the funk and then ends with a sublte loop of keyboard mayhem. 'Digital Love' is perhaps the only criticism of this album due to its heavy pop appeal which is never a good thing. To go through every song on the album would probably not be good enough to describe this albums diversity and originality. The short but ambient 'Nightvision' is a brief smoker before one of the albums highlight tracks 'Superheroes' kicks in. The album jumps from bangers to ambience in a matter of minutes and tracks like 'Nightvision', 'Something About Us' and 'Veridis Quo' deliver the anti-climax to the previously neck jerking tracks. If i had the amount of words i would go into every minute detail of the album because it is simply that good. Overall an easy 5 STAR rating and definatley worth whatever you pay for it or however long you wait. Discovery is simply the greatest dance album there is to buy!!!
