2. Aerodynamic
3. Digital Love
4. Harder Better Faster Stronger
5. Something About Us (Love Theme From Interstella 5555)

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.

What a fantastic pressing!! Super quiet after a cleaning (not sure how bad it is without a cleaning because I always clean). Definitely one of my best sounding records.

Amazing sound quality. noticed some crackles and pops during the quieter moments, but nothing that bothered me enough. My copy did have some damage on the cover and, for some reason, the spine was upside down.

Is there anywhere any 180gram re-press or so out there?? Thanks for help! From
Daft Punk - Random Access Memories is a gatefold 180gram press which is good!

Love this pressing. Rather then speak about the amazing songs on it....Everyone here should remember this pressing was mastered by GOD lol well close enough anyway when it comes to sound engineering skills. R.I.P. NILESH PATEL aka ''Nilz'' (died in 2011). This is one of the reasons (as well as the tunes) why people (including me) love this pressing so much and speak highly of its quality and it always ends up on the some top 50 best audiophile records review to use for testing sound equipment.

Good press, solid album. Don't quite at the level of Homework or Random Access Memories but still a solid and classic French dance album.

Better get US Astralwerks one, these "Gopher" copies lack in dynamic range and are a bit on the bass side. Sounds very digital to me.
