    The quintessential Daft Punk record. Nothing Daft Punk ever does will be quite like this record. Of course, they never do the same thing twice, but this is just truly a masterpiece of house/electronic music. Made with the exact same equipment as the raw-sounding Homework, this is their transition into robots, with vocoded vocals and more melodic synth leads. Thomas described it best "showing the electronic kids rock music was cool". With almost unrecognizable sampling with songs like Superheroes, High Life, and Face to Face, and the ever-so-awesome vocals of Romanthony on One More Time and Too Long, this is the album that you're gonna put on in 30 years and dance with your nephews to just like your aunt probably did to you with Off the Wall. Truly a great piece of history.

      I first came across One More time while seeing a glimpse of the video of "One More Time" back in December 2000, and the vocoder lyrics coupled with the music mesmerized me. 'Daft Punk just released an album?', I thought, while still having "Around The World" on my mind. And this album seemed to trump their previous work. Discovery is my favorite from Daft Punk's albums. The concept (Interstella 5555), the songs - with great melodies make this a real and immersive treat for the listener and viewer, if you are into animated content. Many people can relate to some of the tracks on this album, particularly the singles "One More Time" and "Digital Love".
      Other great tracks in the album include "High Life", "Face to Face" and "Too Long" which made a nice conclusion to the set.
      Special mention should also go to Romanthony who did a great job.

        By far Daft Punk's best work. However between track 5-7 it's boring which brings down the overall experience. The whole thing feels so much more accessible and funky compared to Homework

          For me, the best album of the group

            The techno trio returns with the follow up to their exceedingly rare, cassette-only "Homework" release. Another commercial flop, Discovery was panned by fans and critics alike (a grotesque, relatively harmless prog/disco Frankenbaby - Pitchfork) and Daft Funk disbanded in early 2002 to pursue other interests.

                after listening to homework, discovery, and human after all, I have to say daft punk are the most overrated artists in all of music. there is nothing remotely good about their tracks.

                Veridis Quo was probably the best track on the album and it's still not that great.

                  This is the album that got me into Daft Punk, and made me a huge fan of Daft Punk and French House in general. For their second album, Daft Punk dropped all that acid noise that plagued the second-half of Homework and focused on what made them famous, their disco hooks and beats. And the result was Discovery, their most successful album by far.

                  This is what every album should be like. This is the album that everyone can relate to, everyone can listen to, and everyone can dance to. Your anime fans will like this album through Interstella 5555, your ravers and house fans will like this album with it's awesome hooks and great beats, your parents will like this album because it'll sound just like what Disco was back in the 70s, and most importantly, YOU will like this album, because each and EVERY track on here is worth listening to. It seems that every track can cater to anyone's tastes, and that's what makes it so brilliant. And all the tracks are diverse too, none of the songs sound like each other, but they all tell a big story, and they're all just so wonderful to listen to. And that's why I love Discovery. So take a chance on this CD, I'm sure you'll be listening to it "One More Time."

                    This is BY FAR the best Daft Punk album there ever is.

                    All tracks are fantastic from start to finish and there is this so much creativity that you really can't say it's a bad album.

                    People complaining about the heavy use of samples should stop. Why? Well, I don't think that anyone besides Daft Punk could create such AWESOME songs from samples.

                    This is an album that EVERYONE should own. It's so upbeat and so catchy.

                      With Discovery, Daft Punk leave their acid house roots behind and delve more into 70's disco and synthpop. The result is a fresh combination of disco and house and leaves a lasting impression.

                      Most of the songs are based or includ3e samples from many 70's songs, even the first song "One More Time" sounds like it wouldn't be out of place in a disco during the 70's. Many guest artists do vocals work, such as Romantony and some works show a heavy rock influence as well, but with a twist. Aerodynamic contains a guitar arpeggio throughout which makes the basis of the song while Digital Love contains a very cool buzzy synth solo, close to sounding like a real guitar but there are give-aways.

                      Overall Discovery is a very enjoyable album with wide appeal. Sadly it raised the bar so high that Daft Punk disappointed many new fans with the release of the slightly over-repetitive and minimalistic Human After All.
