EDITORS’ NOTES

Daft Punk made waves with the sleek, underground sounds of their debut, but their far more rambunctious follow-up turned the French duo into legends. From the irresistible "One More Time" to the soulful closer "Too Long," Discovery redefined house music for the 21st century, mixing up '70s AOR and Barry Manilow samples with funk loops, filtered synths, and contributions from legends like DJ Sneak, Romanthony, and Todd Edwards. Dance music's usually considered a singles genre, but Daft Punk gave us an album for the ages.

An Amzing Album! Daft Punk Does It Again!

Gresh854,

Daft Punk's first album, Homework, was a huge success.This is there second album. I recently bought it an i absolutely love it. But I have no idea why iTunes deleted all the reviews for there main albums but RAM. Anyways, they have improved by adding in more lyrics in there songs. Heres a review of all the songs:

One More Time - This song is defiantly the best song in the album. The lyrics are great and the song is very catchy. Really nice song! I love it! 10/10

Aerodynamic - This song is a very good instrumental piece. It contains very interesting sounds! 9/10

Digital Love - A very nice song. Very digital and love like. I love this song! Great! 10/10

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger - This song is also one of the best songs in this album! I really like it! ITs nice and catchy! This is also a must buy! 10/10

Crescendolls - This is a really nice song. Like the instrumental music! 8/10

Nightvision - A nice and peaceful song. 8/10

Superheros - A very retro like song! Love it! 8/10

Veridis Quo - A very weird but nice song. 8/10

Short Circuit - A very nice and cool song mix! 8/10

Face to Face - This song reminds me of Michael Jackson and sounds very retro! This song really should be discovered and be in the top charts! Its really good! Great singing too! 10/10

Too Long - Theres a reason why its called too long. Ha ha. A awesome retro like song! 9/10

Overall I would give this album a 9/10! A very nice album. In my opinion I like Daft Punk's Homework more than this one but this ones really good! This was on the top 20 or 30 best albums of all time in entertainment weekly so thats good! This is a must buy! Daft Punk does it again!!!!!!

Confused.

ColeLangmackReviews,

What happened to all the reviews? They used to be on the album page, but now they're gone and now there's no ratings.

Beside that, this album is amazing.

About Daft Punk

Even as they evolved from French house pioneers in the '90s to dance tastemakers in the 2000s to mainstream heroes in the 2010s, Daft Punk remained one of dance music's most influential and iconic acts. The combined talents of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, the Parisian duo quickly won acclaim for their unique blend of first-wave acid house and techno with pop, indie rock, and hip-hop. One of the pair's first projects together was Darling, an instrumental indie cover band; their current recording name derives from a review in U.K. music weekly Melody Maker of a compilation tape Darling were featured on, released by Krautrock revivalists Stereolab (their lo-fi D.I.Y. cover of a Beach Boys song was derided as "daft punk"). Subsequently ditching the almost inevitable creative cul-de-sac of rock for the more appealing rush of the dancefloor, the pair released their debut single, "The New Wave," in 1993 on the celebrated Soma label. Instantly hailed by the dance music press as the work of a new breed of house innovators, the single was followed by "Da Funk," the band's first true hit (the record sold 30,000 copies worldwide and saw thorough rinsings by everyone from Kris Needs to the Chemical Brothers).

Although the group had only released a trio of singles ("The New Wave" and "Da Funk," as well as the 1996 limited pressing of "Musique"), in early 1996 Daft Punk were the subject of a minor bidding war. The group eventually signed with Virgin, with its first long-player, Homework, appearing early the following year (a brief preview of the album, "Musique," was also featured on the Virgin compilation Wipeout XL next to tracks from Photek, Future Sound of London, the Chemical Brothers, and Source Direct). As with the earlier singles, the group's sound is a brazen, dancefloor-oriented blend of progressive house, funk, electro, and techno, with sprinklings of hip-hop-styled breakbeats and excessive, crowd-firing samples similar to other anthemic dance-fusion acts such as the Chemical Brothers and Monkey Mafia. In addition to his role in Daft Punk, Bangalter operates the Roulé label and has recorded under his own name (the underground smash "Trax on da Rocks") as well as Stardust (the huge club/commercial hit "Music Sounds Better with You").

After four long years of fans eagerly awaiting a follow-up to their brilliant debut, Daft Punk finally issued Discovery in March 2001. The live record Alive 1997 followed at the end of the year, and a by-now predictable four-year wait preceded the release of Human After All in early 2005. One year later, Daft Punk released a compilation, Musique, Vol. 1: 1993-2005, and in 2007 their second live record, Alive 2007, arrived. The album and its single "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" won Grammy Awards early in 2009; shortly after, it was announced that the duo would compose the soundtrack to Tron: Legacy, the sequel to the 1982 classic sci-fi film Tron. Daft Punk's music for the movie was released in November 2010, shortly before the film -- which featured the group in a cameo -- arrived in theaters.

Early in 2013, Daft Punk announced that they planned to have a new album released by May of that year. That March, the duo announced the album's title, Random Access Memories, and also launched an extensive press campaign featuring snippets of the album's lead single, "Get Lucky," and interviews with some of their collaborators (Nile Rodgers, Paul Williams, Giorgio Moroder, Panda Bear). The single was officially released in April, and Random Access Memories arrived in May. The album became one of Daft Punk's biggest successes, ultimately winning Grammy Awards for Best Dance/Electronica Album, Album of the Year, and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical. "Get Lucky" earned Grammys for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Record of the Year. In 2014, the duo appeared on Pharrell's album G I R L and collaborated with Jay-Z on the song "Computerized." A 2015 documentary titled Daft Punk Unchained charted their history from the '90s into the 2010s, featuring interviews with Rodgers, Pharrell, and Kanye West, among others. The duo remained active, collaborating next with the Weeknd's Abel Tesfaye on a pair of songs from his 2016 album Starboy, including the number one hit title track. ~ Sean Cooper
