About this deal

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. These guys can go on for hours about who their influences are, and in fact spend much of the album doing so. All image and audio content is used by permission of the copyright holders or their agents, and/or according to fair dealing as per the UK Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. I can't believe it took me until 2012 to actually get the whole album rather than only knowing 2 or 3 of the most famous singles. An exclusive unreleased track ('Ouverture') and several remixes (streaming only) were then accessible.

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.Published by Chesyl Publishing, performed by The Imperials, used by kind permission of Power Exchange. If you have a hard time listening to this start to finish, watch that movie and feel the music in a new way.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters, communities and culture. 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"). 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's much poppier than Homework and has most of the hits you might know by them (no "Around the World" though).

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. After a spell of being aggravatingly out of print, Daft Punk's Discovery finally repressed on their own Daft Life imprint. There's also the Moroder-like composition "Verdis Quo," the sequencing stutters of "Face to Face," cosmic disco looping "Voyager," etc etc. The 103 third parties who use cookies on this service do so for their purposes of displaying and measuring personalized ads, generating audience insights, and developing and improving products.The French twosome behind Daft Punk, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo, get away with an awful lot. 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 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.
