Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (3/29/01, pp.59-60) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...A scatter-shot triumph,, a blow against monolithic record-making....DISCOVERY helps you get your mainstream on...loading the front of the album with the best songs....[its] Euro dance at its absolute best..."

Spin (1/02, p.76) - Ranked #8 in Spin's "Albums of the Year 2001".

Spin (6/01, p.145) - 8 out of 10 - "...Crystalline intensity....No record this side of SIGN 'O' THE TIMES or NEVERMIND could hold such a pace..."

Entertainment Weekly (3/30/01, p.68) - "...A retro-techno-suite positing SWITCHED ON BACH and Van Halen guitar solos as the new apex of club-culture chic. The beat editing and EQ wizardry still wow..." - Rating: B

Q (4/01, p.97) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...It attacks old questions and spent ideals with such renewing verve and invention that you wish you were French yourself....a towering, persuasive tour-de-force..."

Alternative Press (4/01, p.63) - 4 out of 5 - "...This album is all about getting down...it virtually has no use outside of a club setting..."

Mixmag (4/01, p.163) - 5 out of 5 - "...Daft Punk regin again....altering the course of dance music for the second time....Alternating between 80s-inspired art-schoolish excursions in noise racketeering and straight-up raise-the-ceiling club acts...the perfect non-pop pop album..."

Vibe (6/01, p.158) - 3.5 discs out of 5 - "...An even bolder statement with a high level of gloss....You don't need to be strung out ina dark room full of beautiful strangers to enjoy it..."

Mojo (Publisher) (4/01, p.100) - "...This is a slicker Daft Punk, the raw edges slicked back under glossy production....Mullet techno, if you like..."

NME (Magazine) (12/29/01, p.59) - Ranked #16 in NME's 50 "Albums Of the Year 2001".

NME (Magazine) (3/10/01, p.31) - 9 out of 10 - "...Simply fantastic pop....This is a record so polished, intense and bursting with Pop Art ideas it almost belongs in the Tate Modern..."

Probably the greatest house music album ever produced. From the manic electric guitar-soloing on 'Aerodynamic', to the robo-funk of 'Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger', to the Barry Manilow-sampling 'Superheroes', to the space-age house of 'Voyager', every song here has its own distinct sound. But the highlight has to be the Todd Edwards collaboration 'Face to Face', a melancholic house classic with dreamy cut n paste vocals and an irresistable tune. Absolute house music perfection.

i was never really a fan of this album as i felt it was just an album of the gay almost handbag house that you would hear at any house gig. there is some good tracks on here and although the overall album is fairly disco sounding its worth a listen as you never know it might be your thing, me personally no but homework and human ater all are his better records in my humble opinion.

An essential album to own for all electronica lovers. French group Daft Punk move on from their old stylings to create 'Discovery', a dynamic mixture of heart pumping songs. Needless to say, 'One More Time' has become a dance classic, and it the first song on the album. THe next three in sequence also pack a punch (and ALL follow a sequence of sweet as music videos!). Pretty decent album.

Im not a fan of the genre, but I thought I'd try it out. A friend of mine reccomended this album to start off with and my reaction....

I was appauled, the music is cheesy and annoying, if this is a good album for the genres standards then electronic pop has a very bleak future indeed.
