Homework

Album Summary

Homework is the debut studio album by the French electronic music duo Daft Punk, released on 20 January 1997 by Virgin Records and Soma Quality Recordings. It was later released in the United States on 25 March 1997. As the duo's first project on a major label, they produced the album's tracks without plans to release them, but after initially considering releasing them as separate singles, they considered the material good enough for an album. Homework's success brought worldwide attention to French house music. The album charted in 14 countries, peaking at number 3 on the French Albums Chart, number 150 on the United States Billboard 200 and at number 8 on the UK Albums Chart. "Da Funk" and "Around the World" became U.S. Billboard Hot Dance/Club Play number-one singles, the latter of which reached number 61 on the Billboard Hot 100. By February 2001, the album had sold more than two million copies worldwide and received several gold and platinum certifications. The album is widely hailed as a classic of the French house genre and a significant influence on subsequent dance music.

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 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.

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 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"

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.

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.

Daft Punk is partially why I'm doing this whole thing.In the wake of their retirement I realized that I didn't like much EDM aside from them and was hoping to maybe find something similar and other albums and artists along the way. Anyway, this is probably a 4 on the enjoyability scale for me. Discovery is my go to. This is still really cool and Daft Punk gets the 5 because I say so

During my first listen the songs initially felt a bit too repetitive, but I started getting more into it when Around the World kicked in, and of course the Indo Silver Club is probably still my favourite Daft Punk track.

one of the most important albums ever made, its influence heard around the world, it still sounds fresh to this day, 25 years later. the textures and the shape of the music, the mastery of the synthesizer and dance music, its all so addicting — daft punk were truly so ahead of their time, they are missed. hopefully we can get a reunion tour at some point.

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.

A fantastic, seminal album fully deserving of its place on this album. They keep it simple, the make it effective. At a time when Big Beat ruled the dance scene this album really helped put straight up dance music back on the mainstream map again.

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! ****

The tunes aren't all as good as some of the songs off of RAM or Daft Punk; but Jesus, this is the pure, distilled EDM energy of a buzzsaw. Some of the songs do slightly overstay their welcome and run out of ideas, but for the best part this slaps start to finish.

The duo indulged in the most artificial/intellectual tricks of various styles of production (hip hop, ambient, funk, industrial, house). Their genre of melodic and exuberant instrumental music was hardly innovative compared with the disco music of their parents. (7/10) FT: Around the World

I know this album really well. Let's give it a spin... More disjointed than I remembered - some of it is aggressive and repetitive in a way that I'm not sure translates to today's listener. That said, it's for sure a groundbreaking album that's set off in a direction that others have followed.

Listening to the whole album it's amazing in hindsight that they've had such mainstream success Obvious call-outs to Da Funk and Around the World which arguably owed as much of their success to their compelling videos as they do to the tracks themselves

My bias here is I love Daft Punk and Da Funk opened my eyes to dance music. This album is brilliant. Not at their imperial peak, some tracks are filler. But it also has Da Funk, Around the World, Phoenix, Oh Yeah, Rollin and Scratchin, and Alive. A daft, punky mess indeed.

I'm not the biggest Electronica fan. Still, it's easy to see how this album was ahead of its time when it came out. You can really recognize a lot of musical themes that are present in this genre today. So that was cool, even if I didn't like the music quite as much as other labums

Started off the bat as a strong 5 contender with excelent build up to "Da Funk", which is straight-up amazing. However, later experiments proved to be fatal - both for the rating and listeners ears. Had it not been for tracks like "Rock'n Roll", it would have been almost perfect. Overall a great album for vibin' d-_-b Highlight: "Da Funk"

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.

This was my first intro to DP as a whole album and I loved it. The creative use of chopped and warped samples is unparalleled, and I really enjoy digging through the sources and discovering music that way. At times, there are tracks that sound a bit like experimental noise techno, but overall it's a great album to play and come back to every so often.

4.3 + Not so much an EDM record as an exploration of sonic textures. Daft Punk have always been supreme composers, knowing how to create suspense, introduce themes and build to climax. The best moments on the record take singular sonic elements and manipulate them like putty, warping them and twisting them and compressing them into fascinating shapes and sizes (e.g “Rollin’ and Scratchin’”).

-This is VERY good focus/get shit done music -The transition into the drumbeat on WDFK was DOOOOPE -I definitely feel "in the zone" -Da Funk - oh! I've heard this! The production on this album is very very good. Clean, but has juice. -This does NOT feel like something from 1997. More like 2007 onward. So supremely ahead of its time. Impeccable dance music. -RnR is a bit grating -Admittedly some of the later tracks are less notable/feel more dated -Overall this was great. I'm not sure if I would rate it a 3 or a 4.

As it turns out, this is great music to listen to while playing Risk of Rain 2. Those French robots sure know how to make some catchy beats! They also sure know how to make the worst song ever created ("Rock'n Roll")! I say that with love, because the three duds on this album (that song, "Teachers" and "Oh Yeah") are so bad that they're funny as fuck, and I enjoy that. "Da Funk" is super funky, "Around The World" is my sleep paralysis demon and "Burnin'" was playing while I won the aforementioned game of Risk of Rain 2, and I couldn't have done it without that. It's a crime that "Discovery" isn't on this list as well, by the way. That album knocks this one out of the park. (Insert a whole paragraph of "Around the World" here)

A very lengthy 16 track - 74 minute album. Great album overall but by far not their best. There are a few main standouts, but there's just something lacking throughout. Perhaps it may be knowing their latter works or that they went into their record deal thinking they were just making a bunch of singles, there's a definite lack of cohesion throughout the Homework. Best: Da Funk; Around The World Worst: Teachers

Although not as good as Discovery or Random Access Memories, Homework is still a very solid album and has some absolute bangers, like "Around the World", "Da Funk" and "Phoenix". However, since it is a debut album, it definitely suffers from early installment weirdness, and it is obvious that the Daft Punk duo hasn't found a style yet. Still, this album is quite good, and a must in every party. I miss Daft Punk... :(

"hot mix of P-funk, disco, acid frequencies, and hip-hop-style sampling... club bricolage; immediately brand new and yet utterly retro" according to the book, and who am I to disagree?. Still sounds great 25 years on, but as I recalled maybe a bit too long, and would be improved by dumping a few weaker tracks.

I’m excited to listen to this! I really like the Daft Punk I’ve heard, but it’s been a very long while since I listen to an album all the way through. For some reason, I thought one of my favourites (Robot Rock) was on this album. I was wrong. Songs I already knew: Da Funk, Around The World Favourites: Da Funk, Around The World, Phoenix This hit the spot many times for me. Several times I found myself with goosebumps, wondering when and how certain chords would resolve or how long I’d be teased. The beats are great throughout, and I love the rubber synth. The best songs on this album were 10 out of 10 for me. However, I did find there to be a fair amount of filler dotted about. This is the kind of album where you find your favourites, and then tend to skip the others because they don’t add much to the experience. Overall, I would still consider this to be a great album despite the lesser songs included. An easy recommend for people who enjoy EDM.

Once upon a time, in a Paris bedroom, two longtime friends made an album that would bring French house to the masses and change electronic music forever. Homework isn’t Daft Punk’s masterpiece (that would be 2001’s Discovery), but it shines like a raw-cut diamond, displaying the duo’s knack for selecting and manipulating samples to create something entirely new and irresistible.

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.
