Daft Punk didn’t do it again.

In 1996, Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo released Homework, a CD that revolutionized house music around the world.

Now, it’s 2001 and they’re back with Discovery. Homework caught an entire generation off guard, and the 20-year-old pair blew old school acts out of the clubs. As a whole, Discovery feels empty and does not even come close to the brilliance of its predecessor. Tracks like "Harder, Better, Stronger, Faster," with its catchy vocal over-sampling and rolling beat, stand out compared to the other tracks, but after several listens the disc becomes tiresome.
