About this deal

Products labelled '*item fulfilled by Exertis on behalf of hmv' will be supplied to you directly by Exertis via their approved couriers. 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. The most famous track on the album is probably Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger having been sampled by Kanye West. Doesn't feel like much use reviewing an album this huge, but Discovery is too important to me as a person not to.

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. They go around impersonating aliens and robots in their interviews, they put records out only once every three years, and they make music that evokes a million other artists--while not really sounding like any of them. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. 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. Certain items can take longer to source than the estimated week, particularly during busy trading periods and may take longer to arrive at our warehouse.When I heard that Leiji Matsumoto had created a full-length animated feature with stunning animation based on an ablum by Daft Punk, I just had to check it out.

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. In March 2001, the electronic duo released their second album discovery, a total of 14 tracks, driven by the hit singles one more time, aérodynamic, harder better faster stronger, digital love…a multi-platinum album. In this case, it seemed more like the music video was just a distraction than an extension of the music.

Nightvision" is a mellow, wordless, Quiet storm-meets-Eno soundscape, while in an interpolation sure to gain plenty of attention, "Superheroes" marries a Barry Manilow sample to an unrelenting house beat.For items that are dispatched using our standard service, we ask that you wait 14 days from the date of dispatch before reporting any items as undelivered. 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"). My other favorite tracks include "Nightvision", "Superheroes" (why do I actually think of comic book superheroes when I hear that song? Aerodynamic" eschews breakbeats for an Yngwie Malmsteen-ish guitar interlude that somehow ends up meshing in a crazy blend of stomping bass lines and hyped-up harmonics.

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. Edit: turns out it should have been obvious to me but anyway I figured it out by looking at the record cover closer. 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. The album features six singles, 'One More Time', 'Aerodynamic', 'Digital Love', 'Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger', 'Face to Face' and 'Something About Us'.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.

With no frills or fluff, every original track on their third album from 2001 appears here in crunching glory, not sounding an inch rougher or time-weathered. So, I didn’t own this on CD, nor do I have the original vinyl so I can only talk of this version but I’ve been waiting for this (and the re-release of homework) for ages. The vinyl came in very safely packaged in a box bigger than I expected to prevent damage to the vinyl. In the edit page, go to the 'Metadata' tab and add your Juno artist, label or release page for listeners to purchase your release / releases.

Two years later we made the move to our present address, 35 The Headrow, where we have remained ever since. 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. Nightvision” is a mellow, wordless, Quiet storm-meets-Eno soundscape, while in an interpolation sure to gain plenty of attention, “Superheroes” marries a Barry Manilow sample to an unrelenting house beat. Gatefold jacket with full printed paper inner sleeves including lyrics, credits and a photo of the band. 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.
