Electronic music has seen its fair share of trials and tribulations over the past 15 years, but one thing has remained constant… Daft Punk’s Discovery is still one of the greatest electronic albums of all time.
I know of so many who have been directly influenced by the French duo, even Skrillex. Their music is instantly accessible and instantly recognizable – I defy you to find someone who doesn’t know the sound of church bells ringing in “Aerodynamic,” or who doesn’t know the words to “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.”
And while people mostly know those two tracks and maybe a couple more like “One More Time” and “Digital Love,” the entire album is quite simply an epic work of art.
Two days ago marked the 15th anniversary of Discovery‘s release on February 26, 2001.
