Rollin' & Scratchin', Rock'n Roll , Revolution 909 are one of best songs.
Around The World is one most annoying songs ever.
But definetly best DP album


May 23, 2016

This album has some awesome parts and some not so awesome parts. I can hardly make it through all 7 minutes of Rollin' & Scratchin'. Rock'n Roll is almost painful to listen to. Maybe they will grow on me. The rest of the album is really good though. Some of my favorites are Revolution 909, Fresh, Teachers, and Oh Yeah.

I bought it 1997 and i played the record a thousend times at home and on parties (dj) Definitely one of the best house albums and definitly! the best "daft punk" album....!

Completely and utterly classic, very influenced by Chicago House, pretty harsh sounding at all times, but in a fun way. Da Funk has those funky bass lines, Around The World is a dance floor classic, and Alive is a real club mover and a staple of DP's live shows. Discovery is a more accessible house album, and Homework isn't for everyone, as some of the reviews here show, but for late 90s French techno, you can't get much better than this

Easily the most overrated Electronic Music LP ever produced. Whilst some of the tracks are funky and fresh [Around The World, Fresh, Revolution 909], most of the album is stuffed full of uninspired Techno & House. Pretty much all of the other tracks are boring and go nowhere. However the tracks I have mentioned are very forward thinking and influential, though still fairly boring compared to Discovery

Daft Punk’s Homework is probably one of the most cited electronic record from the French country, be it not by unbiased listeners. The good thing is that, in its linear approach to dance music, the tracks are quite versatile. It goes from the straight and kicking techno from the happy “Phoenix” to the disco leanings of the excellent “Around the World”, which is probably the best track here, offering a beautiful - almost melancholic - twist midway to its deep and accessible groove. “Revolution 909” is a typical example of how catchy house music can get, utilizing the drum machine to the max and putting the bass under it with excellent timing. But herein lies the problem - most of the other tracks on the album come off as monstrosities trying to do the same and failing, especially showcased by the second half of the album. Tracks like “Indo Silver Club” and “High Fidelty” miss the hooking elements that should make them worthwhile. “Burnin’” has an awesome building bassline, but only after you have waded through 15 minutes of absolute garbage in the form of “Rollin’ & Scratching” and “Rock’n Roll”. And that’s not even mentioning all the filler on the album like “Daftendirekt”, “Oh Yeah” and “Funk Ad”. “Fresh” and “Da Funk” fortunately take a different approach to the dancefloor, but the unbalanced mixing of elements of the latter doesn’t quite do it for me. The epitome of mind-flattening music comes with “High Fidelty”, where a sample is looped over and over again as if it is made by a child playing with his first music mixing program. In the end, the main disappointment is that Homework underlines the wrongful prejudice dance music should be repetitive and mindless to a ridiculous extreme. This album sure is influential, but just not in a good way.

I won't discuss the quality and relevancy of this album here & at this point in time - others did it far better and i guess it would take a while. One thing though : the "Shouts to" and especially "Respect to" listings on the sleevenotes are absolutely mandatory. Any kid digging music and inspiration through this album's sleevenotes (and also through the namedropping on "Teachers") will be hit straight by hot new cool musical worlds, and might experience a life change through music (and style) ; and i guess the robots deserve big kudos for that simple fact (as a start).

It's 2011 and this album is every bit as playable as it was nearly 15 years ago. Da Funk and Around the World are the highlights of the album, but its just a completely well-designed release. I'm not even much of a house listener and I love this album. This is a good lesson on how to make an EDM album - no filler tracks, just good music.

Probably an all-time classic, and a must have for any self-respecting electronic music listener.

Lots of classic tracks on this album, my favourites being Revolution 909, Da Funk, Around the World (obviously) and Alive. The rest I can easily do without most of the time, though it makes for nice background music on hot summer days that you can sway your hips to idly. It's not the best or most radical Daft Punk album by far and it's obvious they have since long moved on from this sound but it's still a classic house record and a testament to their early sound.
