Concepts:
The Daft Club
All the copies of 'Discovery' were released with a 'Daft Club' card included that permitted a web access to the Daft Club (Daftpunk.com). An exclusive unreleased track ('Ouverture') and several remixes (streaming only) were then accessible.
After several technical problems (one of them omitted Mac users to connect to the site and asked them to search on peer to peer networks, such as Napster, to download 'Ouverture' - which came in total contradiction with the existence of the club), the concept was abandoned.

This is one of the few brand new records in my collection that I don't have to constantly whip out my spinclean to listen to with an acceptable amount of surface noise. It is almost completely silent, give or take a small crackle from a bit of dirt. If only other records had the quality of this one. Came well packaged, no harelines or scratches out of the box.

Daft Punk present themselves as the masters of clever repetition in this album. With the exception of the a bit too drawn-out closing track "Too Long" (nomen est omen), they know precisely when and how to throw in the right amount of variety into their sample-pot.
The pure vocoder genius of "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" is by far the only standout track on this album, equally brilliant are the serene "Nightvision", the atmospheric "Verdis Quo", and the energetic "Superheroes" does indeed do justice to its name.
Unfortunately this 2014 pressing is a bit on the noisy side in places ("Better, Harder, Faster, Stronger", "Too Long") hence subtracting one point from the total.

Music: 5/5
Pressing: 3.5/5

putting the uncredited samples as the first thing you see is how artists get sued and stop making music with samples.

Agreeing with juhpopey here, it seems to be a good one. Packaged well, among one of the quietest records I have, sounds good. A very good pressing indeed, so far as I can tell. And, yes, the vinyl mastering is better than the CD's. No download code, but I like making needle drops anyways…

I am having the opposite experience as Booj1Boy with this pressing. It sounds fantastic to me. Nearly dead quiet, extremely minimal clicks and pops after anti-static gun and brush. Haven't even washed it yet. Picked up from Barnes and Noble on after replacing the utter shit pressing that is the Pretty Hate Machine Universal pressing. Running through a Sony PS-X6 and Shure m97xe cart to ART DJ Pre II phono pre-amp to AudioEngine a2+ powered speakers, replaced paper sleeves with MoFi's.

Not a fan of this album....One more time is about it for me. I rather listen to the single of that song instead.

Bad pressing, both copies I have recieved sounded scratchy and had contestant surface noise out of the box.

This Euro release has a longer copyright text on the bottom as opposed to the shorter US release
