They sound really good, i'll agree. But when you take a closer look, you see that most of their stuff is just sampled black music. Robot Rock "contains a sample"? The song IS the sample! How can they put their own names under it?!

Homework is the best you'll get out of this music. Everything else just slowly declines to some really bad stuff.

To think they've only actually released 3 actual albums is pretty amazing. I have to pull a 'hipster' and happily state that I was into them way back when the track 'Musique' was just gaining popularity. Then the Da Funk video got released and everything blew up from there on.

They're definitely talented guys and even if some of their tracks reek of cheesiness, they have a free pass :-D

Daft Punk just became to one of my favourite bands as well! I remember the time - when I was under 10 Years old, or even 2 or 3 when "Around the World" was a new tune on TV. Then the time when I was about 6 or 7 years old - one more time was it again, the mainstream sound.. At this point I really liked it, but I never knew who was it! A friend of mine came up with Around the World again, just more than a year ago which was the new beginning for me! I bought "Homework" (and even "Alive 2007") then, which have been my first albums.
Then I just noticed that this sound marks an era for me. The Album "Homework" is just like a "noone could reach it"-album. It means not only listening to Da Funk or Around the World, it′s a great mixture on it. Even "Rollin'& Scrachtin'" became to one of my favourites. Allover one of the greatest things in my ears!
Then - Discovery... Much more the Mainstream sound, but still kept on the same exceptional Daft-Punk level which marks their era egain! This Album always brings back memories.
The Album "Human after All" is an exception for itself. The funny thing about it is, that this is an album where the name "daft punk" is to be taken a bit more literally :D ! Indeed, it does not really fit in the songs they made before, but now it′s "daft" Punk!
And NOW - the Tron Legacy Soundtrack. Something which is not a real exception for me. Ok, not really filled with electronic sound. But listen to the Tron-Soundtrack, and even to the orchestrated things - and then Listen to the "Irréversible"-Soundtrack by Thomas Bangalter... You will see that there are differences. But not so many which keeps it to a part of the whole Daft Punk Thing.
Daft Punk, and even the Sound of Thomas Bangalter became a part of my life! And this exceptional sound is something that we should never forget! (and we won′t!)

What can I say about Daft Punk? They are one of the greatest and most influential people in the world of Electronic Music. They were one of the groups that brought the French House sound to the mainstream audience without commercialising it, they were one of the first groups to use autotune before it became an overused fad and despite (until recently with the soundtrack to the next Tron Movie) haven't released a major tune since 2005 have still managed to be as popular as ever.

Without Daft Punk, we would not have the dance music of today and has influenced many artists - even Kanye West, who had a #1 hit sampling their tune, 'Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger'!

Daft Punk - you guys rock!

It's fair to say that I am into Electronic music mostly thanks to these chaps... Homework is by far the most important Electronic/House release of the '90s. Discovery and Human After All were somehow not as good as their debut but their recent live take on the 3 albums and consiquential success of the tracks from these two albums, proved that the guys are very much at top of their games (only, possibly, The Chemical Brothers can match them).

Daft Punk is really great. The best of the best in house and electro. I was a follower of Daft Punk after buying their Homework album. From there, I developed tastes house as I listened to songs like "Oh Yeah" and "Burnin'". The second album (Discovery) was a masterpiece, featuring a story inside the CD (called Interstella 5555: 5tory Of The 5ecret 5tar 5ystem). The remix CD later released was an excellent collection of different music styles, no doubt about it. But then everything fell as it came to Human After All.

Human After All sounded like a cheap production of music by just using drums and a bass guitar with robot vocals. No sense of disco in it what-so-ever. Many were displeased with their output, and to compensate; a Daft Punk music collection (Musique Vol.1) releasing previous tracks as well as 3 more tracks from other artists.

I worry if this may be the end of Daft Punk, because once you've reached the top, you can't stay there forever. I just hope none of this happens again. I am a devoted fan of Daft Punk, and I am not about to give it up.
