Capturing the energy and excitement of the dance floor is by no means an easy feat, but Daft Punk manage with a total lack of self-consciousness. They make no bones about the fact that they're trying to have fun with their music. Listeners who remember the methodically pointless video for their hit "Around the World," with its robotic characters going around and around in circles will understand the playfulness of Discovery. Newcomers will be thankful that this second release is as accessible as the last, while retaining a sense of honesty and lack of pretension that is rare in dance music today.

Editorial Notes

Daft Punk: Thomas Bangalter, Guy-Manuel De Homem Christo.
Additional personnel includes: Todd Edwards, Romananthony.
"Short Circuit" was nominated for the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Performance. "One More Time" was nominated for the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording.
In 1997, this French electro-dance duo made a huge intercontinental splash with its debut album HOMEWORK, mixing disco, house, funk, techno, and more. While Daft Punk's second recording still focuses on the maximum accessibility that earned its debut such high marks, there's less of an obvious focus on pop hooks. Irony and house beats are the order of the day, and an eclectic thread runs throughout DISCOVERY.
"Digital Love" sounds like the theme to a '70s sitcom as realized by the Buggles. "Nightvision" is a mellow, wordless, quiet storm-meets-Eno soundscape, while in an interpolation sure to gain plenty of attention, "Superheroes" marries a Barry Manilow sample to an unrelenting house beat. Ultimately, DISCOVERY is less of a mission statement than its predecessor, but no less danceable or listenable.
