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.

On my version (with GOPHER on the matrix), there are 2 LP's with sides A and B with the same inner sleeve, and no LP with sides C and D.
Have you ever bought a version with this mistake ?

Contrary to the review below this one, my brand new copy (I just got it off the shelf in Mexico) shows it is not a good pressing. Crackles and pops all over, soft, but quite noticeable in downtempo tracks like B3. Also, both discs have quite some background sibilance that spoils the listening experience. 3 stars.

There is still a supply of this record available currently as I recently received my copy. I love the fact that it comes with one of those plastic lined sleeves that protects the record from scratches as well as saves money on getting decent inner sleeves. Additionally it comes with the original thick card sleeves with the original artwork that the album came with. Sounds phenomenal. Very glad i go this pressing and not one of the other ones that have reported issues. This was the album that got me into Daft Punk some 13 years ago when i was only 7 and here I still listening to it. You will know songs from this album even if you dont know daft punk or the track name

Just bought a copy of this pressing. No hissing to report on any of the album, even at the more quiet parts. I purchased it in a recordstore in Copenhagen - dont know for how long this example have been in the store, but it seems like they might finally did fix the hissing issue.

Amazing press, not a single pop or crack but it just doesn't sound as dynamic as the digital copy. 180gram 2xLP black vinyl with a sturdy and glossy gatefold, comes with plastic lined sleeves and extra thick sleeves with pictures from Daft Punk. I would say this is one of the most "heavy duty" LPs I have, if not the most.

Are the records 180 grams?

To other people that commented, always wet clean when you buy a new record.

My copy of this album is completely fine; absolutely no hissing on any of the album. Actually, probably the best sounding of my albums. Whether it's a new repress or reissue I dont know. I purchased it on the HMV website.

A lovely album from beginning to end but for the life of me I can't tell if the second half of the track "Superheroes' is a bit warbly and distorted on my disc or if it's always sounded that way and I've never noticed over the past, damn, 17 years.

Super clean pressing, comes with both wax and picture sleeves. Can't reccomend this enough.
