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.
