Jackin' house, big synth melodies and party ready techno cuts define Daft Punk's debut. It's less of the robot-ey, riffy pop hits which would come to prominence in their following album 'Discovery' and more club friendly, upbeat jams. 'Homework' must have been a breath of fresh air back in the day and has influenced pretty much every French house act since. It features the repetitive android classic 'Around The World', 'Da Funk', 'Burnin', 'Alive' and 'Revolution 909'. It still sounds incredibly fun today and is bound to get any decent party started.

- Homework by Daft Punk
8/10 gbar 16th April 2017
Daft Punk's debut album was about as 'dancey' as they got in their history. It's also rather different from the Daft Punk we all know and love, and is certainly less accessible than their successors. But there is still something to love about Homework, from the cool repetitive beats in songs like "Revolution 909", "Around The World" and "Burnin'" to the funky guitar-driven riff in "Da Funk" to the minimalistic drum-based "Rock n' Roll" and "Rollin' & Scratchin'" that builds up to an almost-orgasmic climax. While there are a few glitchy samples of human singing, Homework not a purely instrumental album, but if you plan to listen to Homework having heard their other albums expecting more of the same, you'll either be disappointed or you'll be astounded by the old-skool house/funk this album is made up of.
