Daft Punk never forget to let their playful, hip-hopping ambient techno keep turning the beat around, making Homework ideal disco for androids.

Slant Magazine
Led by hits like the unrelenting “Da Funk” and the dizzying “Around the World,” the album is a savory mix of borderline-cheesy filtered loops and super-simple drum machine beats and basslines.

This is a mighty mash-up of a debut which radically redefines France's pop credentials. And Daft Punk probably make a tasty quiche too.

Just when I thought there was a possibility of a new Daft Punk album, they break up. I just cannot believe the iconic duo are never going to make music anymore.

While "Homework" isn't the most unique album, there is still plenty of fun to be had on this album! There are some groovy dance tracks on here like "Da Funk" and "Around The World" that are just incredible and some of my favorite dance tracks from the 90s. And then there are some great experimental cuts on here like "Oh Yeah" and "High Fidelity" that are also awesome!
