Daft Club introduces a dozen mixes of tracks from the pair's 2001 album Discovery, along with a couple additional tracks. The call-to-party single "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" gets retuned twice, first by the Neptunes, who give it a loungey vibe and a funk-by-way-of-OutKast sound (courtesy of Pharrell's flow), and later by Jess & Crabbe, who focus instead on the propulsive beats.

Barnes & Noble - Lydia Vanderloo
Best known for advancing techno-funk from the clubs to the pop charts with hits like "Da Funk" and "One More Time," French duo Daft Punk here do the reverse. Daft Club introduces a dozen mixes of tracks from the pair's 2001 album Discovery, along with a couple additional tracks. The call-to-party single "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" gets retuned twice, first by the Neptunes, who give it a loungey vibe and a funk-by-way-of-OutKast sound (courtesy of Pharrell's flow), and later by Jess & Crabbe, who focus instead on the propulsive beats. In fact, if Daft Club reveals anything about Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, it's that their addictive tracks are more varied than the average club kid might assume. So while energetic highlights abound -- check Slum Village's repossession of the barely recognizable "Aerodynamic" and Demon's slippery "Face to Face" -- another side of the dynamic duo's artistry is revealed by tracks such as "One More Time (Romanthony's Unplugged)," wherein the guest singer/producer extracts the song's soul in a spare recording featuring only vocals and strummed guitar. "Something About Us" (poached from the DVD release, Interstella 5555) splits the difference, ending the disc with a pop-electronic tune reminiscent of Air. C'est magnifique!
All Music Guide - John Bush
Although not rising to the level of either of their previous production albums or their live record, Daft Punk's version of a remix album is far better than most of its ilk. But first off, agreeing to remix Daft Punk counts as an act of high hubris for most producers; the duo is responsible for some of the most innovative productions ("Musique," "Revolution 909," "Aerodynamic") and remixes ("Mothership Reconnection," "Disco Cubism," "Chord Memory") of recent years. But fresh blood is always intriguing, and the acts hired out to post-produce for 2001's Discovery LP were widely varied and highly talented. Basement Jaxx's version of "Phoenix" (the only track originally taken from Daft Punk's debut album) is a mostly successful translation of DP-style robot disco into Basement Jaxx's vision of sensual house. And although few of the other big names tapped turn in tracks that meet or exceed expectations, the gaps are filled in nicely by lesser-known French upstarts like Jess & Crabbe and Cosmo Vitelli as well as mainstream house mastermind Boris Dlugosch, whose "Digital Love" wisely changes very little of the original.

    Enough Gems to Get!

    This was an amazing find at the local music store. This CD contains a ton of remixes of Daft Punk's "Discovery" album. There are some songs on here that just go on and on and on, etc. Some of the other ones, like "Ouverture", "Aerodynamic" Daft Punk mix, the Neptunes's take on "Harder Better Faster Stronger", and Boris Dlugosch's idea of "Digital Love" really make this album worth getting. "Too Long" Gonzales version is an excellent, condensed version that uses piano and traditional instruments - a step back from the synth-heavy sound we know and love. If you like Daft Punk, if you're a fan of "Discovery", then consider this an essential part of your music library.
