Seems there are two different UK and Europe Embossed cover issue's (V 2821) the difference being that https://www.discogs.com/Daft-Punk-Homework/release/236605 does not have a cover sticker whilst https://www.discogs.com/Daft-Punk-Homework/release/2947655 does have a cover sticker. The version without the sticker is more popular. You're welcome ;)

One of their best albums ever. If not their best. Definitely worth it! This album still holds up after all these years.

This being their first album you can tell they are well rooted in techno and house, and over time they worked in their more varied influences. Just listen to who they name drop in Teachers - lots of true tech and house legends. For lovers of underground house and techno, this is a gem, and my personal fave. People who think their subsequent albums are better are fans of the more popular influences. I personally love the underground tech and house DaftPunk more, but respect to DP on their progress based on their varied love of all music.

as a teenager grown up in the 90s, i think that this album was one of the greatest musical creations of that wonderful decade.
the new generations who find homework boring compared to the newer DP albums, should slow down a little bit and take the right amount of time to listen and get in touch with this absolute masterpiece.
it won't be wasted time.

this is more of a mixing album than a 'listening all the way through' album. all the more reason i love it.

This album, for me, is overrated. Yes, I know my opinion goes against the popular one, but aside from two or three stand out tracks, I actually find the album quite boring. Not bad for a listen at home, I've only ever heard 'around the world' played out. The album is mostly lacking in energy and is not as funky as some believe it to be.

Most people, especially fans of DP's new material, complain that this record is boring, repetitive, sterile. I too had the same feelings about it for a while. I can't tell you how to change your mind, just give it a couple of listens, put it down and listen to some other house tracks/albums, and come back to this one after a while and give it another go. And maybe the next time you listen to a house track, you get the feeling the producers didn't get it quite right like Daft Punk did on Homework. The kick drums never quite as relentless, the bass never quite as deep, the hi-hats never quite as crispy, the groove never quite as organic and the licks never quite as funky. And then when you play Homework again, by the time Daftendirekt is over you realize Homework is not trying to revolutionize or sell itself, but instead is just 70 minutes of leisurely grooving, crystalline house intended as a timeless record meant to be enjoyed for no other reason than the love of groovy music.

This album completely shook up the house scene as soon as it was released, I have fond memories of those days. The french filtered sound that followed was a direct result of this album. Daft Punk have never managed to equal the high's of their debut release, although some of their solo projects have come close.

This surely brings me back to 1996! A cool breeze of electronic basslines and plain beats. Back then there was no stress yet in the sound. It could all still be relaxed and fun. The music unfolds in an easy manner. Really great music and never lets me down! The only thing is that it is a bit slow compared with the shit from now. And I never liked the artwork! Hahaha! I think it's so ugly! But it's all about the vibe of hte music ofcourse.

This album's importance in electronic music history may have only become apparent recently, nearly 10 years after its release, for it can be readily observed how commonly at least some aspect of the style portrayed here has been knocked off by other artists to freshen their own productions. Quite strange, considering it is an album that basically explores the past, ranging from disco ("Fresh", "Indo Silver Club") to Kraftwerk-esque minimalism ("Daftendirekt", "Da Funk", "Around The World", "Alive"). Combining an element of a more modern outlook on club sounds ("Revolution 909") and that something that makes it all Daft Punk ("Rollin' & Scratching", "Rock N Roll"), you have yourself quite a unique album and one whose importance should never be underestimated.
