Best of the 90's: Homework by Daft Punk

HomeworkThis French duo splashed onto the music scene in 1997 with their debut that comes in currently at number 97 on the Best of the 90's list.  With a well structured album which incorporated hard funk into their electronica-dance pop these guys quickly made a name for themselves. 

This album plays like one coherent piece of music and is one solid hook followed by another.  Where much electronica feels at times lost and emotionless, this album seems very well organized and full of feeling.  If you're like me and not one to sit often and listen to a full instrumental electronica album, this may be the best you'll ever find.  Even without vocals each song seems fully realized as though it's built around a vocal that isn't there.

A good album to put on while you cook dinner and clean the kitchen.

Following the Rhapsody rating method I give it 3 out of 5 stars for Pretty Good.

  1. This is probably the best instrumental electronica album I've ever heard.
