This "album" was a medley of singles that each half of the duo was working on before deciding they might as well paste them together with transitions (because that's all an album is any ways, right? A mass of sounds that doesn't share any themes or connecting threads pasted together with little vision?). Beyond the lack of any obvious theme in the music (which I suppose I could overlook) is the length. Holy fuck, why are all these songs so long? Is the point to make me want to stop listening before it's over? Is this performance art? "Around the World", "Rollin' & Scratchin'", "Rock'n Roll", and "Burnin'" account for just under 30 minutes. Despite this combined length, they do not even make up half of this album (sitting at 74 minutes). Who needed this? Who asked for this? I want answers because I want to know whose name I should be cursing as I doze off to sleep trying desperately to forget this album. There's some funny joke to be made about "Teachers", a song that pays tribute to their musical heroes while managing to be bad music. I certainly don't have the energy to make it after being bombarded by seventy. four. fucking. minutes. of these repetitive noises. Not all of it's bad, although even the good comes with bad. The first three minutes or so of "Revolution 909" is catchy and interesting (but it overstays its welcome). The first half of "Indo Silver Club" is a real ear worm (but it overstays its welcome). "Alive", although admittedly not as good as the previous two songs, is pretty good for the first little bit (but it overstays its welcome). I guess both Daft Punk and I were wrong, there seems to be at least one theme that combines much of this album, its desperate need for an editor or any form of quality control. The only songs I found good all the way through were "Daftendirekt", "Da Funk", and "Fresh". However, my favorite song is "WDPK 83.7 FM" just because it is the only song on the album whose length I won't have nightmares about.

If Joel Schumacher would have continued making campy Batman movies, one of Batman's villain's (probably Egg Head or King Tut) would play songs from this album to make all of Gotham City go insane. This is the perfect album to listen to when you desperately want to get a headache.

Didn't realize the criticism around this album was so divided. Oh well. Still like Daft Punk and this is a great demonstration of their early style. The noisier tracks tend to get flak, but I was happy to hear them as it was a side of the band I was unfamiliar with. The length is certainly a bit much, but it's dance music after all.

This was actually my first ever listen-to of a Daft Punk album (which is coincidental, due to being picked on the announcement of their breakup) but this friggin album came out when i was 10 years old! what can i say about it though, it got me moving throughout the entire album, and outside of the iconic songs ("Da Funk", "Around the World") there were some bangers on there like "Fresh" and "Indo Silver Club"

This is more like a 4.7 out of 5 but I'll round up. Not at Discovery levels yet but as a debut album this is up there with some of the best of all time. Da Funk is amazing song that I can listen to at any time and it's one of a few like that here.

I thought this was pretty good and there aren't that many lyrics which makes it nice work music aside from that "Around the World" song which I think is what they used to brainwash operatives during the Cold War.

Daftendirekt, Da Funk and Fresh are pretty great tracks. Teachers and Around the World are quite good. Burnin is big bad. Rollin & Scratching and Rock N Roll are some of the worst tracks I have heard in my life, absolutely ear-raping sirenes, horrible. Overall score: 6/10.

This is hard one to rate just listening back, since this is kind of made to be played in a club/dance party situation. It is pretty straight-forward house with some acid/techno at times. At 1997 this was a big deal though, it's just kind of self-aware dumb dance fun that I'd love at a club but listening at home is hit or miss. Some tracks are definitely better than others. Compared to today's EDM/IDM scene this is very barebones production/embellishments which I can admire. It's a 3 for home listening and as an "album", apparently they never intended this to be an album but rather a bunch of singles. Also this was likely intended to be multiple vinyls so it's not even designed to be listened all the way through I don't think, but rather mixed in and out of a DJ's set. Since this is "1001 Albums" I will have to give it a 3, but in different circumstances it'd be a 4.

Que ce fut long et dur de venir à bout de cet album... J'ai d'ailleurs dû m'y reprendre à six fois pour y arriver. Ce n'est pas une surprise, Robert Dimery choisit en général le deuxième pire album de chaque artiste pour l'intégrer à sa liste des 1001 ; ce fut une fois encore le cas avec Homework. J'ai à ce propos envoyé un message à Robert qui ne devrait plus tarder à me répondre.

This was my first Daft Punk album back in the day and I thought it was SO AWESOME. This is back when it was the only one. I still love me some DP, but they grew a lot over the years and this album has aged TERRIBLY. A lot of it is headache inducing. Still, I appreciate its importance and I remember how it once made me feel.

This isn't an album of songs. If you go into it expecting that, you're going to be disappointed. I sure was. The (very) few songs that incorporated something resembling a melody line simply took four bars of a hook and repeated it ad nauseam. See "Da Funk" for reference. What it IS, though, is a masterclass on how to build a beat. These tracks are layered and complex and fine tuned to a precision edge. It is the ultimate loop record for DJs to create mashups with. I have a good buddy who was an acclaimed mashup artist (until he got sick of fielding cease & desist orders and takedown requests). He used the hell out of these beats to great affect. Unfortunately, the tracks don't stand on their own and a whole record of them is exhausting to listen to.

After years of trying to understand Daft Punk, I decided today that I just don't get it. The "repeat the same measure 64 times while a single note drones in the background, then repeat with a slight variation" genre needs to die. Best track: Funk Ad

My favorite electronic dance album of all time. Listened to alot of electronic music from this era but most of it was more IDM headphone music. This is extremely danceable while managing to keep it moving in such a way so as to keep it interesting throughout. Remember riding a bus across town to go buy this at a store in a strip mall as a lad. More memories of playing this at impromptu dance parties at college in the dorms. Holds up.

Legendary album full of bangers. Only feels dated because it's such an iconic album of an era. A bit long for listening straight through, but doesn't really get stale while doing so and it can be broken into songs easy. Yeah, it doesn't take much to understand why they rose to such extraordinary heights as a group.

At this point Daft Punk feels like an electronic music institution. It makes sense for them to be on the list, but I was surprised to know so little of the tracks on this album. It was enjoyable bangers throughout, but not peak-Daft imo, Around the World and Rollin' and Scratchin' toward the middle of the album are solid tracks and def show why it's here on the list.

ну как бы вроде и снова чилл, а вроде какая-то печать интеллекта на лице есть. Не большой фанат танцмузла (по мне несложно сказать, что по клубам не хожу), но в несколько тем залип, прежде всего в связку Around The World и Rollin' & Scratchin'. Ну и Da Funk например забавная. В целом послушать можна вполне, за работкой там вообще как по маслу идёт, но не отпускает ощущение, что эту вот всю хуйню писать — вообще усилий не требуется, я за час в музик мейкере че-то похожее набрасывал.

Daft Punk! Heel bekende naam uit mijn tienerjaren. Ik kan me voorstellen dat we met vrienden helemaal wild zouden gaan op dit album. Heden ten dagen klinkt de muziek ietwat simpel, maar ondanks dat heel erg relaxt. Eigenlijk toch wel geniaal hoe ze zo'n gevoel in een paar piepjes en plopjes kunnen leggen. Voor mij een bovengemiddeld album met uiteraard de bekende nummers die natuurlijk klassiekers blijven. Als je langer naar het album luistert, raak je in een bepaald sfeertje van de '90s en wordt het album langzaamaan geweldig! ****

One of my favorite things about Daft Punk is their desire to break their songs down to reveal their structure to give us an insight to their process. They are also keen to share their influences within their work as shown by ‘Teachers.’ This lends their music a sense of approachability and enthusiasm. Homework is Daft Punk’s first major label record and was one of the first wide reaching French house records. The music is driving, playful, and minimalist in parts.

I like electronic music. That's something that people who know me well tend to pick up on. However, there are many different kinds of electronic music, and I usually go more for the kind that I sometimes self-deprecatingly describe to my friends as "photocopiers murdering each other" than the more oonts-oonts varieties. This is at least partly because I don't like dancing. The music of Daft Punk, on the other hand, is made specifically for the dancefloor, and if you want to bust a move for 74 minutes then they have you covered with this one. Sometimes I really wish I was the type to hang around in fancy nightclubs. Best song: Revolution 909 is silky smooth.

I’ve never liked listening to straight up dance music in an (unmixed) album format. And this one is 75 minutes long – so 40 minutes of filler. The 90’s technology – specifically the Chemical Brothers inspired noisy bits – hasn’t aged well, but the bass lines still rock and the disco-sampling French style that they popularized is still going strong 25 years later.

Uno de mis grupos favoritos que me quedaré con ganas de ver en la vida. Tiene algunos temazos archiconocidos como Da Funk y Around The World, pero el disco en sí es bastante repetitivo y hay muchos temas que chirrían. Lo mejor estaba por venir sin duda.

Well, this is certainly interesting and different. I had heard their name for quite some time, just never listened to any of their music as far as I can recall. I rarely encounter this style of music ("House"? I think?), and I don't expect I'll make a habit of it, but this album has some really catchy tracks. After a while, though, it felt like I was in a fast-moving video game with lots of lights and colors flashing. Also, I don't really like dancing, so I am a terrible judge of what makes good dance music, but I can see the appeal of this album for people who like to dance.

This album was a lot of fun to listen to. It's undeniably catchy, feeling like the prelude to a great night out. I must say, the front half of the album is thrilling to listen to. "Da Funk" and "Around the World" are the clear stars of this show. Once you hit "Teachers" though, it starts to feel long. I feel like this starts out like an evening at the club, it starts strong and pulls you in, but then the music gets looser and more repetitive as you move through it. By the time you hit "Rock'n Roll," you have been dancing deep into the early morning hours. It plays differently just sitting at your desk and gets a bit tiresome. That said "Indo Silver Club" is possibly my favorite track. Fave songs: Da Funk, Indo Silver Club, Around the World

Questo disco non doveva stare in questa lista, i daft punk sono ancora alle origini qui e stanno solo gettando le basi per quello che è il sound che creeranno dopo. Se si voleva mettere un album di dance music si poteva mettere quello di uno dei musicisti che citano nella traccia teachers. Il disco è molto pensato per un certo contesto con pezzi che sono delle belle maranzate però un po’ mi dispiace punirli perché non è musica esclusivamente da ascolto. Per me il voto è 2.5 e comunque around the world è sempre fico.

Aujourd'hui je pense avoir enfin découvert les réelles motivation de Robert. En effet, Robert est un ennemi de la France. Sa technique pour nous faire sombrer: selectionner quelques artistes français seulement, et proposer seulement le moins bon album de leur discographie. Ainsi, l'auditeur décérebré et inculte du générateur pense avoir affaire aux quelques meilleurs albums issus de l'héxagone, alors qu'il n'écoute en fait qu'un condensé de musique moyenne voir mauvaise. Vous ne me croyez pas? Dans ce cas pourquoi Robert a enregistré un album en son nom, disponible dans cette liste, au cours duquel il fredonne dans un français hésitant, sur fond de guitare desaccordé? "Chaime le France, c'est mön pays", sérieusement... Je vous tiendrai au courant dès que j'aurais discuté des retombées d'une telle decouverte avec mon camarade robniel.

I don't really listen to this type of music often, but there's something about Daft Punk that I like. Because I don't listen to the genre, I can't really critique or assess it. I don't know what Daft Punk does differently or better or whatever - but it's good.

Random Access Memories is my only frame of reference. This sounds similar but less fully realized. Makes sense since I think this is their first record. What I like about RAM is that it feels like pop songs. Less drawn-out electronica than what is happening here. Still, though, it's good "up the pace while you're working" music - which is what happened when I listened to it. Isaac's sitter must wonder what's happening in here, with me listening the George Michael and Daft Punk back-to-back.

I've never listened to a Daft Punk album straight through. I certainly have enjoyed the singles I've heard, in various settings. I was just served Justice so I guess the album generator feels I still need to dance more, Frenchly. Daftendirekt is a super strong start and I'm loving everything, some familiar some not, up until track 8, Rollin' & Scratchin' which is not really suited to home listening. Sometimes noise is just noise. That and the next few tracks are less interesting, and dare I say overlong. Overall I enjoyed the album less than I expected. Beginning and end 1-7, 14-16: 4.5, middle 8-13: 2.

Szkoda, że takie albumy też znajdują się w tym zestawieniu, bo nie ma tu mowy o ocenie go według tych samych kryteriów, co rockowych hitów. Nie do końca jest to też album odpowiedni do słuchania go przy komputerze w samotności, o wiele bardziej doceniłbym go gdzieś na imprezie, gdzie można do tego potańczyć. Żeby być fair wobec reszty zestawienia, na tej płycie są 3 bardzo dobre utwory, które można słuchać w warunkach codziennych, a aby docenić resztę, trzeba już trochę o tych utworach poczytać. Urzekł mnie fakt, że na jednej płycie mogą znaleźć się te same utwory, tylko jeden z nich puszczony od tyłu (Da Funk i Funk Ad). Znalazł się tu utwór nagrany live, nawiązania do ówczesnej kultury tanecznej, wtrącenia do amerykańskiego radia i przez całość albumu przewija się (szkoda, że w tak małej liczbie fragmentów) świetna funkowa gitara. Daję zaokrąglone w górę 3, mając nadzieję, że Discovery też się w tym zestawieniu znajdzie.

4/17/2022 Today's Album: "Homework" by Daft Punk - Being the first album by legendary EDM outfit Daft Punk, this is really showing me their roots as musicians. This is essentially the spiritual successor to the Chemical Brothers, being that the album is mostly composed of remixed dance music and samples with very little music. Coming out in the tail end of the 90s, I would have to imagine that this is one of the first albums to really work with style and I think in a lot of aspects, it pioneers that sound in a fantastic way. The nature of EDM and club music is that it's just going to get boring after a little while. The shuffle beats and claps get repetitive after a while and although this is not seen as a negative by most fans of the genre since it is being danced to for long periods of time (often on drugs), I think I just have never been able to sit through a song that is essentially just a looping beat. However, I think that is only somewhat of a problem on this record simply because of how great the production is on the beats. There are repetitive moments, but they usually are really great to listen to and it isn't long before there is some sort of mild switch-up. I think my favorite parts of this album is when they really go off the rails with their instrumentation and let some absolutely disgusting midi synth noises in like in the last half of Da Funk. I love the distorted arpeggios that open the song Fresh alongside the sound of crashing waves. Around the World is obviously really well known, but I really think it drags on for too long (almost 7 minutes) and the only thing you really get out of it is a geometry dash instrumental with the line "Around the Wooooorld" repeated like 150 times. It's not a bad song by any means but just gets really grating after a bit. Rollin' and Scratchin' is a more dark take on the dance music they had been showing off thus far and although I think the 7.5 minute runtime is reasonable for this track given the experimentation it's going for, I really don't think it translates well out of a drugged out club scene. Technically impressive, yes, but would I listen to it more than once? no. Teachers is a little weird in terms of the vocal, but idk I kind of fuck with it for whatever reason it's just groovy enough to justify itself. The track Rock'n Roll is actually really fucking grating and goes on for way too long. If there wasn't some other redeeming parts of this album, this song would singlehandedly make it not worth it to listen to this. The rest of the songs on the album are decent to listen to and I think the closer Funk Ad is really nice, but none of the tracks leave very much of an impact at this point, feeling like Daft Punk has shown their hand at this point in the album. Overall, I'm looking forward to hearing their later albums in full because if there's anything I can say about this one, it's that there is a ton of promise, but the runtime is simply too long and many of these songs that run for 6-7 minutes could be compressed into some great 3 minute tracks. Listen to this one if you like EDM and if you aren't, maybe just play Around the World and vibe for a little bit. Score: 7/10 Promising, but either bloated or boring. Highlights: Daftendirekt, Revolution 909, Da Funk, Fresh, Teachers, High Fidelity, Burnin', Indo Silver Club, Alive

Нет, так просто не должно быть. Думал, врублю, ща балдёж будет, старая электронщина, типа той, что позже в Hotline Miami попадёт какой-нибудь. Но тут снова аморфный репетативный кал, состоящий из бита и семплов. Вот зачем это существует? Серьёзно, в клубах крутили? Я думал, даже для клубного хита нужна, не знаю... мелодия, например, а? Не? Их пару есть, да. Но их немного, и они заёбывают своей репетативностью. Могу представить разве что то, как подобное врубают чтобы задать темп физической активности. Но нам в началке врубали группу Space на физре, и то лучше было. Фрагмент «Rock'n Roll», «Oh Yeah», «Burnin'» - это просто преступление против эстетики какое-то, чуть ли не худшее, что я слышал... вообще в своей жизни. Тупа кал. Я хз, чё они там делали, альбом 4 года писался ведь по сути, ёбан в рот! В прочем, ладно, «Da Funk», «Around the World» - норм темы, в «Alive» добавить лейтмотив и вышел бы трек к Хотлайну. А ведь такие образы балдёжные, шлемы эти, думал, боги электронной музыки, на которых даже я выёбываться не смог бы. В общем, одно из самых больших разочарований в рамках 1001.

Dei Daft Punk conosco a memoria e adoro Discovery e Human After All (che non sono in lista), mentre Homework l'ho sempre trovato troppo ballereccio (e noioso) rispetto a quelli citati prima, che diversamente sono state concepite in maniera più orecchiabile e matura. Da Funk e soprattutto Around the world sono un pezzo della mia adolescenza, ma, l'ascolto di quest'album, è stata un'esperienza noiosa, non terribile, ma di quelle che se ti squilla il telefono interrompi per rispondere.

Most of these songs feel like unresolved experiments as opposed to releasable material. How these songs garnered mainstream attention is baffling to me. Even the songs I recognize like "Da Funk" and "Around the World" get too repetitive and annoying as whole songs to me. I suppose they work well in a club or live setting though and it sounds like they did a lot of promotion beforehand.

Homework by Daft Punk (1997) This is a notably curious record—French electronic/techno ‘house music’, basically consisting of amateurishly robotic dance beats. It puts the “less” in “mindless”. A review of the lyrics is kind of fun, since most of the tracks are instrumentals, and the remaining ones treat words as either meaningless rhythmic repetitions or, in one case (“Teachers”), a mere litany of recording artists who influenced the duo. It would be interesting to hear the Litany of the Saints in this fashion (not really, although in some celebrations of the Church’s litanies, I’ve gotten a similar vibe. And who knows? Some of the saints might think it’s kinda cool!). Musically, it’s all about grooves, and some of them are quite good (e.g., “Around the World” - but it’s too damn long!). Sometimes (“Daftendirekt”) the meter is confusing—a good dancer might be embarrassed to discover a minute into a track that he/she is boogying to the wrong woogy. The dentist’s drill background track “Rock ‘n Roll” is definitely NOT rock ‘n roll. Occasionally (“Revolution 909”) the artists provide their own dance club sonic ambience, with sorry effect. This music needs some vocal overlay (like from, oh, I don’t know, Pharrell Williams?). But that would require melody; and on this album, that’s in short supply. The biggest weakness is the lack of (or slow pace of) development and variation in these admittedly creative tracks (a minor 20-second exception starting at 6:05 on “Rollin’ and Scratchin’”). Hypnotic cohesion is basically all you get from Daft Punk. It is daft. And the listener has been suitably punked. Keep the first half of “Around the World” and throw away the rest of this album. I’ve done my duty. If you play this record on a long drive, you run the risk of killing someone. 2/5

Let's be real: Daft Punk is one of the most overrated groups of the last 20 years or so. I was never into the club scene, and MDMA has never been my drug of choice, so naturally none of this makes any sense to me. It just repeats ad nauseum for 75 minutes. Yeah, an hour and a quarter. If it was half as long it'd be alright tbh. Around the World is a catchy little tune... it just gets its point across in about 2min then goes for another 5. Da Funk isn't bad either - both those songs would be totally listenable if they'd just trimmed the fucking fat. I think there were radio edits (I remember hearing both those songs on the radio, and no way would a 7min song make it onto pop radio) but the album punishes us with full-length versions instead. The rest of the album is forgettable, just b-grade rehashes of the same idea. All that aside, I do have to grudgingly give this a 2/5 - it never actively made me spit chips. It just droned on mindlessly in the background.

I do not like electronic music as a rule. This isn't as bad as most because how can you not like that 4 beat dance music rhythm. Great if you're actually dancing though. Otherwise, repetitive and it gets old quick especially because its so long. 2 or 3 to be decided after another listen.

Jak ogólnie lubię Daft Punk to po tym albumie widać, że do wielkości trzeba dojść. Krążek brzmi raczej jak zlepek różnych baz i bitów do dalszego miksowania niż prawdziwe utwory. Może trochę też denerwować przesadna repetetywność utworów, zwłaszcza że niektóre trwają ponad 7minut. Rollin' & Scratchin' ma tak kakofoniczne dxlźwieki, że nie byłem w stanie przesłuchać do końca. Around the world znałem i wciąż dobre, chyba najlepsze z albumu. Daftendirekt całkiem ciekawe, pewnie przez to że ma chociaż odrobinę wokalu. Rozumiem, że płyta miała duży wplyw na muzykę klubową i elektroniczną, ale w mojej opinii jest to ich najsłabsza płyta. 2.5/5

Wow, this is boring as fuck. I was expecting to give a ‘controversial’ 4 as all my friends seem to love Daft Punk but I’m not so sure. I had to skip a few outros to make it to the end. A couple of cool songs but as an album this was a real chore.

I had heard a few songs from Daft Punk prior to their 2013 release of Random Access Memories. I listened to that album as my full introduction to the band. Homework has a couple songs that I have heard before ("Da Funk", "Around the World"). "Around the World" is the track I like the best from this album. I did not enjoy most of the tracks on this album. I don't understand the repetition. In some cases, the repetition goes on long enough, and is of such short clips that it feels like a broken record ("High Fidelity"). Maybe there's something that I'm missing.

Not realy my music this album. One or two song of later albums I know and are nice to listen to when they are on the radio. I did not know they did the soundtrack of Tron the legacy, nice.

I tried... I really did. But I don't like this stuff. EDM music is terrible and just gave me a headache.

I’m only through 10 songs but I’m calling it now. This is way too much electro pop whatever for me in a row. Not my jam.

Siouxsie And The Banshees deserve a lot of credit. They've come up with a truly original sound here. The standard chord progressions of rock 'n roll are nowhere to be found, replaced by an emphasis on minor seconds, tritones and overall dissonance. The rhythms are tribal and relentless, particularly Budgie's drums. McGeoch's guitars lines are serpentine or jagged, and often drenched in reverb--he develops new ideas and concepts for every song. The lyrics are disturbing and evocative. Siouxie's vocals are impassioned. The entire band gives a sustained and committed performance throughout the entire album. The energy never flags, so much so, that the overall effect is claustrophobic. And yet, despite all of the skill and passion involved, not one melody or lick or chord sequence or rhythmic sequence stuck to my brain. That's a mystery, but unfair as it might seem, I'm going to dock Juju a star for that. Even free jazz or avant-guarde classical music needs to provide a point of entry for the listener. Who knows, maybe with repeated listens, Juju would magically become more accessible to me, but at this point, I admire it more than like it.

This album wasn't for me. Not my vibe at all, though Around The World is a good song but I think i like it because of nostalgia. 1/5 stars.

Rock'n Roll: sembra un bambino con un pezzo di metallo in mano che sbatte su tutto quello che trova per dare fastidio ai genitori. Ci so riusciti so stati tra i 7 minuti e mezzo più lunghi della mia vita, non me immagino manco come mi sarebbe potuto piacere se fossi stato fatto di MDMA in un club. Mi dispiace ma non so proprio in grado di apprezzarli, purtroppo lo sospettavo e ho cercato di ascoltarli con apertura mentale ma per la maggior parte del tempo volevo solo che l'esperienza musicale finisse e in alcuni punti la cosa si estendeva alla mia vita in generale. Il fatto che Around The World sia orecchiabilie e mi faccia simpatia ripensando al video su MTV non è abbastanza. Penso che l'unico senso che potrebbe avere questo album è per raggiungere una trance sciamanica, ma a quel punto basta un tamburo bello grosso suonando colpi ripteuti a 120 BPM e la psilocibina ed è sicuramente meno irritante. Mi dispiace non li riesco a salvare in nessun modo, meglio i Prodigy a sto punto.

Maybe it shouldn't surprise me that dance music at the start of the 21st century was made in its politically austere and depersonalised image. Though this accrues credibility for turning up in art-house fancy dress, it's still 120 BPM as defensive posture, bodily pleasure as algorithm. Of course, the robot costumes mean such crticism can always be spun as part of the act. To that, I say spin is also so 21st century. So there. And even if that's true, such smart-arsery doesn't bring the bodily pleasures any closer to existence--at least not when listening at home.

Feeling a tad sheepish putting such an acclaimed album from such a beloved artist so low, but this really isn't my thing and I was actively willing it to be over by the end. I might have missed out by listening at my desk, but even if I'd been in a club, I would have probably sunk the nearest jello shot and got out of there. The singularly most exciting moment for me was when the beat kicked in over the spoken loop in "Daftendirekt" and caught me off guard. It's a shame that it was about one minute into this 74 minute album. Across the rest of it, there's a near-total absence of melody, progression and narrative to these pieces: instead, the album revolves around standard 4/4 disco-house beats with looped instrumentation and electronics fizzing in and out, with most tracks averaging 6-7 minutes in length. I just don't know why there wasn't any more regulation, or editing going on. There might have been some interesting production techniques every now and again, but it was only enough to get a passing nod before it's then recycled again... and again... and again. Yes, this is all in the nature of house music, and Daft Punk's enduring legacy has solidified "Homework" as a milestone in the genre. Personally, I just didn't get it. Listening to it felt like being a test subject in a 90s laboratory for about six months, with these daft punks trying to get me to mate with a rat. It's not going to happen guys, ALRIGHT? Jesus!

I'll say it... I think Daft Punk is overrated. I loved their work on the Tron soundtrack, and stuff like around the world will always be a bop. But the rest sounds like a talented kid using the DJ button on a electric keyboard to me?

It's probably really fun to listen to in a different setting, but just listening to it as an album front to back was unpleasant.

Has the excitement of listening to your drippy faucet go "doink, doink, doink" gotten old over time? Why not switch it up with an album by Daft Punk? Daft Punk's 'Homework' has that incessant drone-on IRRITATING BEAT MAGIC you crave. This album provides nearly TWO FULL HOURS of DULL-DOINKING paired with CRINGEWORTHY ANNOYINGNESS guaranteed to drive you nuts.
