About this deal

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. The keyboard noodlings of Jean-Michel Jarre are in there somewhere, along with the otherworldly imagery and giant hooks of '70s rock icons like Boston or even Electric Light Orchestra. 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.

Everywhere on the record, gigantic beats are dropped with pinpoint precision, giving songs a momentum that transforms repetitive melodies into sudden revelations.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. 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. We carry a broad range of CDs and vinyl (7”/12” singles and LPs) and specialise in indie, alternative, rock, punk, metal plus a few other genres. 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. The beat is so infectious that I found I absolutely had to move to the song while I was listening to it.

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" is a resounding standout amidst the retro/Vocoder deluge that transpired after Cher's Believe turned the kitchy disco device into a worldwide pop music trend, spinning a clever groove around an ever-escalating string of computerized seduction. 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. It was also around this time the duo became robots shedding their previous human based presentation. Two years later we made the move to our present address, 35 The Headrow, where we have remained ever since.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. Very quiet in between tracks that aren’t gapless with lots of crispy bass and everything sounding even and true, levels are great and no discernible distortion towards the middle of the disc, probably helped by the fact that it’s a 2 disc affair and the run out on each disc is pretty large keeping a lot of the “music” towards the outer edge as much as possible.Included is a sheet with a credit card with a "member personal access code"; expiration date 12/02, to be used at www.

All the copies of 'Discovery' were released with a 'Daft Club' card included that permitted a web access to the Daft Club (Daftpunk.

The most famous track on the album is probably Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger having been sampled by Kanye West. Ultimately, Discovery is less of a mission statement than its predecessor, but no less danceable or listenable.Daft Punk's defining album comes directly from the horses' mouths, seeing a new vinyl edition in 2022 released via the ex-duo's own Daft Life Ltd. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

Other than, it’s a great album, side 1 has all the ones you’ll know but keep listening and you’ll get more of the same. This album has some of the most infectious melodies and masterful sample work in the history of music as a whole.
