Basically, one year later, OK Go and Coldplay would form. Homework was a startler to some, and ravers were not ready for it. But this album has a few more surprises than its tongue-in-cheek manner.

skips like mad hell during Around The World - so much so that I don't feel like I really own this record. Thought I was going insane until I read this thread. Thanks for sharing, everybody. I'd agree, avoid this pressing unless you only want the songs that didn't get mad radio airplay.
I have number 098 :) word word word word word
Can anybody speak for the quality of this pressing? thinking about getting it
It might be only me, but it looks like the sound lacks a bit of depth. Memories is much better in term of mastering.
I like it, Very clean and silent. My wife dances to it...which I like more.
Musical Aura Island
Disregard my (now deleted) comment. Forgot to update. Scratch is taken care of and plays perfectly now. I use a Stanton STR8.150 with a Stanton 890 cartridge.
Impala Frozen
Great pressing, mine for some reason has the label for side C on both side C and side D
Sadaron above the Gods
Was also hesitant like other customers but this edition is fantastic ! No warp, no pops ou skipping titles. All is perfect and the sound is incredible ! Maybe check the "Printed in EU" to pick the right edition but for me, there's nothing else to say that this edition is amazing. Hope it will help.
I finally picked up a new copy of this release this past weekend. The good news is it played flawlessly and sounded great. No skips, no pops or crackles. Dead silent, beautiful sounding pressing. The bad news is it is warped as all get out. Funny thing is the A side is the most warped, and then it goes down from there with D being the least, but still noticeable. Some records tend to be warped more on one side than the other. This was the case for my copy. That said, it does sound fantastic so I'll ignore the tone arm bobbing up and down as it plays.
It's just an alright album, it got quite dull after repeated listens for me. But there still is some great stuff on here.
How to distinguish this pressing from the original 1997 one? Thanks in advance!
If you want to listen this specific release, you can on youtube here : https://youtu.be/HCysinJNwoU
Was very hesitant grabbing this because of the issues with the 2012 pressing, but I'm happy to say this Parlophone pressing is the one to get. No issues with skipping on my Technics SL-D1 and it sounds incredible.
No issues about the skips on this repress. Great sound!
Back in 1997 I wasn't alive but as soon as I started to get into electronic music I'd obviously heard of this album as it is so popular in the community and a classic in electronic music culture, and I would say I agree. Homework is a timeless album that has never gotten old since its inception more than 2 decades ago and I don't see it dying out anytime soon. Almost all of the songs on there are memorable and iconic in their own way and it's overall a solid album from front to back... although I do have a few problems with it. I'll go down track by track.1. Daftendirekt - This is just a little intro piece that gets us introduced into the album but it is quite memorable, mainly because of its sample which I think is hilarious to sing over and over again.2. WDPK 83.7 FM - Little interlude piece between this song and the next but I do like how it's presented.3. Revolution 909 - Now HERE'S the first proper track. The intro to this track is a very neat way to start off the track, just a lot of people at a rave before the cops come and shut it all down, ironically with the same track playing in the background, giving listeners a taste of what's to come over the voices. Also I swear there's someone from The Beatles talking in the intro but I have no clue as well. Anyways, after the intro is over, we get the rest 4 minutes of this song to be, well, the song. Nothing really to note here, it's just some overall great house production that gets my head moving anytime I hear it. I also really like the way it sounds on vinyl, the samples have this kinda raw feeling that I can't get anywhere else.4. Da Funk - Now this is a classic track, and for a good reason. It's memorable melody and it's progression are the things that make me return to this song and make me not forget how much good this duo can do. Plus the brief moment that lasts from 1:52 through 2:25 is honestly some of the most satisfying production I've ever heard.5. Phœnix - Now this is a really good track. The first minute of the song is pretty decent, but it's from 1:24 onwards that makes the song absolutely great. The catchy sample placed upon that infectious beat makes me want to start dancing like crazy. Such a good tune.6. Fresh - This is a pretty interesting tune. You got sounds of waves and the awesome guitar playing at the beginning, then followed up by a pretty solid sample that keeps the song going. It's not one of my favorites from the album but I can get the appeal. I do remember when I was 8 and walking with my dog and my mom and I remember looking down at the rocks while this song was playing. Forever ingrained in my mind whenever I hear this tune now.7. Around The World - Now THIS is the definition of a classic. If you're a fan of electronic music then I'm pretty sure you've heard this, it's pretty much inescapable. The catchy beat along with those iconic vocals make this one hell of a track for sure. I understand that some people say it's repetitive, especially considering that the album cut is 7 minutes long, but I have no problem with it. I've been listening to this song as long as I have and it ain't getting tiring anytime soon, plus it gets better and better each time I hear it. Such a good and classic tune, love this to bits. One of my favorites off the album for sure.8. Rollin' & Scratchin' - Okay now this is a track I don't like. The first like 2 minutes of the song is pretty good, but when that horrendous sound comes on that's when I can't stand this track. I can understand why they put the sound in here but they didn't have to make it the main point of the song like jesus. Almost go deaf near the end of the song. I think it was supposed to sound heavy but for me it just sounds irritating and annoying, but hey I've heard worse.9. Teachers - It's a short song but it's pretty decent. The underlying beat behind the vocals is pretty good but not the best the duo has to offer, but I think the song was supposed to be mainly focused on the vocals. I think that them saying their inspirations on a song like this is pretty important because it gives people a background to what the duo actually listens to and that's honestly pretty cool.10. High Fidelity - This is my favorite off the album. I am a SUCKER for people making great hooks off of chopping up vocals and this song does it perfectly, plus the beat underlying the nonsense of the chopped up vocals make this song a highlight for sure. I just love this song to death, great example of how diverse this genre really is.11. Rock'n Roll - After the previous track we get hit with this one and my god I fucking hate this track. Not only is it just copying Rollin' & Scratchin', but it's EVEN MORE annoying than that one. It starts off fine with this beat and not-at-all bothersome noise, but then that noise slowly starts to get even more annoying and ear grading than it already was, and by then end it just ear-piercingly loud, plus that outro does NOT help. This is by far my least favorite along with Rollin' & Scratchin', I skip this track whenever it comes on. Just why?12. Oh Yeah - Okay now here's a track that I can get behind. First of all it's only 2 minutes long and just goes by without a problem, and secondly there is more annoying sounds in this track but they aren't the main focus just like Rock'n Roll and Rollin' & Scratchin' which was the main reason why I hated those tracks in the first place. I do have to mention that this is not really a breather from the previous track, Rock'n Roll, but at least I can get behind it somewhat.13. Burnin' - Now THIS was for sure a breather. Even though it does have a sound that's kinda the main focus on here, it's not annoying or ear-grading at all, in fact in my opinion it actually fits really well on the track. Plus the beat on this song is SUPER well done, shows how talented these people are. One of my favorites from this album, really great song.14. Indo Silver Club - This is also one of my favorites. Once that beat starts to kick in I start going crazy. The production on this track is super well done and just gets me moving anytime I hear it. Plus that little synth in the background of the sample is super bouncy and great. Just an overall really fucking solid song, these 2 dudes do a great job at making you move for sure.15. Alive - Eh, don't really feel this one.16. Funk Ad - This is not a way to end an album. Just 51 seconds of Da Funk reversed? Seriously? Burnin' should've really been the album's ending instead of these last 2 tracks, feel like bonus tracks more than anything.Overall, even though I do have some complaints, this is honestly a very solid album and a classic for sure. This album will forever be in rotation till the end of times. Very timeless and never getting old ever.

Yeah, pretty sure I snagged a copy of this because it skips like crazy all along (the best parts of) Rollin' & Scratchin'. A bit noisy in other parts as well, and skips even after a good cleaning. Gonna try and find an OG copy instead.
groundbreaking masterpieceeverything was perfect. it became one of the most successful techno/electronic albums of all time. Thanks to the videos which were made by famous directors like SPIKE JONES, ROMAN COPPOLA and michel gondry
I am definitely sure that I have this version as it has Parlophone and the label code on all record labels. However, I have MPO 1820261 stamped on all sides. Maybe I have a new repress or Matrix variation.Also I am playing this album on an AT LP-60 (fixed tone arm) and it hasn't skipped on Rollin' and Scratchin' (only some CD Stutter around the 3:30 mark when the song ramps) but I had multiple skips on Around The World. I cleaned the record before play on my Spin Clean washer system. Sounds excellent though, can't recommend enough.
Great sound on my copy. I'm using a Technics SL-1200MK3D. No skips, no issues.For those complaining about skips using their Crosleys etc, maybe consider changing your turntable before blaming the vinyl.
Ça doit faire 3 fois que j'achète ce LP et à chaque fois, c'est des Repress ! Les vendeurs sont soit mal honnête ou soit ils manquent de professionnalisme. Faites à attention. N'acheter pas des Brand news de vinyldigital.de c'est des Repress !!!
Just bought my copy finally, no skips/cracks/pops: it's all good!
Does this 2012 pressing also have the embossed/raised text on the cover?
yes it does. yes it does.yes it does.yes it does.
No issues with skipping on the repress version on my player. Solid purchase for fans of late 90's house music and techno genres.
my version doesn't skip, i used a stanton 500v3, ortofon concorde pro and a grado black, none skip
I have the 1st press edition album 1997 (embossed sleeve) but the matrix has VISA 8148 (the white promo matrix number) scratched and the MPO 426101... is it he same on all the first pressings or a mistake ?
That's the same for all commercial first pressings. Could be added to the Notes.
I have the 1st press edition album 1997 (embossed sleeve) but the matrix has VISA 8148 scratched and the other number... is it he same on all the first pressings or a mistake ?
Playing my just purchased version through on Rega RP3 with Dynavector 10x5 - smooth sailing and great sonics :)
this version skips too much ... I have bought it once, I have exchanged it, same thing (Audio-Technica cartridge)... Is it possible to have a version without default ?
I ordered the original 1996 pressing but I received this instead and sadly it skips all over the place.
When I think that without the Chemical Brothers, "Homework" would probably have never been released. You can really hear the influence of the British duo, especially in "Rollin' and Scratchin'"."Alive" is my all time favorite, it hits you straight in your soul. Emotional and rythmical, what does the people want more ? On the contrary, "Rock'n Roll" and "Rollin' And Scratchin" have always been a bit rough for me.On the whole, a solid classic that is intended for an informed audience. Indeed, several songs aren't easy listening for everyone.
The only one I heard was Trax on da Rocks - Unload those for best offer~~ if you want super punk forget that shit~~~ get The Ramones first Dyno original Signed band , first two albums are what you really want, ---- "Peace,Love and Tranquility "
Another one with a great record in a shitty edition :( Skips too much in the greatest songs. I will try to clean it and preserve it for the moment I get a good turntable.
I have two turntables for sale if you went to toss out a best offer- a Pioneer it is just under quality of top line with strobe .
This is, and I suspect always will be, my favourite House lp. I remember being totally skint the day it came out and gladly selling, for exchange value, the two Oasis albums I had no use whatsoever for, in order to buy 'Homework'. I made tons of tape copies of it for practically everyone I knew, and played it literally hundreds of times. The weekend after it came out, I was at a shit student party across the road from my ex's flat, where fucking ABBA kept being played. I don't exactly hate ABBA, but listening to them for hours on end is too much. I ran over to my exes and grabbed my cd of 'Homework' to bring back over. As soon as it was put on the stereo it literally brought that party back to life. So fresh and energetic, and still sounding good 20 years later!
Any skip in this pressing? .
My copy skips. I checked the matrix runouts and other numbers associated with my Homework vinyl from here and they are the same. My turntable is an Audio Techica AT-LP60, and yes I'm aware that the skipping may be related to not having a "good" turntable like the AT-LP120 model, or some other good Technics turntable. The vinyls in the album are in good condition, I didn't do anything wrong with them. I received the Homework vinyl brand new on Christmas day (possibly came from Amazon). So the skipping issue could be caused from not having a "good" turntable or I have a bad pressing.... So what do you guys think?
I just recorded my copy today - no skips at all.Nothing audible of the other defects mentioned here.I listened -very- hard to hear the "CD stutter" in Rollin&Scratchin - not present on my copy.The last 30 seconds of the same song are exactly as on the CD, no skipping, not in between and not at the end. The Song ends with an effect that simulates a "hanging" or "jumping" CD, which is in fact the normal ending for this song.My deck is a linear tracker from the early 1990s - nothing fancy, but set up with care.That said - the sound of the discs is very nice overall, but the original CD release virtually "destroys" it on every level.It is nice to have this masterpiece of electronic music on vinyl - but compared to the digital release it is nothing but a shadow of what Daft Punks sound really means.Yes, there is "better dynamics" on the vinyl - if you believe in the Dynamic Range Database having some real meaning to the "sound" of a release - surprise: there isn't (always).Daft Punks Music is not programmed to have expanded dynamics (remember: this means the difference between the loudest and the quietest part of the action) - it is meant to punch you in the face, to split your brain with the square waves and to empty your ear drums of all the dust. All this to get your butt moivin' - and it works perfectly (for me...).The music and the sounds on "Homework" are like streamlined for the digital age and deliver perfectly. The CD has no noise, no clipping, no distortion, uses headroom perfectly and is absolutely stunning to listen to. It may sound "loudness war infected" to vinyl-ears, but it is not - for me it just shows, in a perfect way, the technical advantages of a CD become reality in the final product. In direct comparison the vinyl offers a raised noise level (normal for vinyl) and generally softer sound (less "punch" or "kick"). If you are not into this kind of music, then the pure power and clean energy of the CD may be a little "too much" for your ears. The vinyl then may give you a more relaxed listening experience. The absolute genius of all the songs is still there... no doubt on that. And the full frequncy range is still there too - you only have to push that amp a little more to inform the neighbours what's playin'. ;)An advantage of the vinyl is the fact, that the somewhat lowered levels opens up your ears for the quieter parts of "Homework" - the CD tends to "bang it all away". And by this it sometimes tends to mask the details in between all the "boom". But this effect is temporal - if you listen carefully you can (of course) find all the details on the CD too. The vinyl simply offers a shifted focus on the album and this can be very nice too.To sum it up - this Re-Issue is made very well, there might be a chance you get a copy that has "issues" - but I got lucky this time. The vinyl lover will get everything(!) he craves for. But I must admit that to me it is only a "nice addon" to my Daft Punk catalog. The source for this release was definetely a high res copy, as there are no visible frequency limitations as high as 19 or 20 Khz. But I gave it only a 48/24 treatment... No pre-echoes, so I guess it was a digital source (... to be honest, I hardly doubt that there is a traditional analog master for this album to begin with...). If your copy is clean, then this pressing will shine brightly and there is nothing to complain about.
Rollin&Scratch in the last 30 sec, jump and finish the play, i try to buy another and i have the same problem, idk why jump
No problems here, nice flat pressing, punchy bass and clear mids/highs..
Not skips as such, but definitely other defects. "Rollin' & Scratchin'" sounds like it has CD stuttering in (around 1:41 mark). There are others as well of a similar nature... does suck because the quality of the pressing is quite nice otherwise... but whatever they mastered it from had issues to begin with (is my speculation).
I just listened to both sides of the first disc with no issues. Project Debut Carbon Esprit w/ Ortofon 2M Red.
Bad Sunny
This version skips. It is still an enjoyable experience but the skips do interrupt the play. The sound quality is decent.
i also have this copy and don't have any skips. Spinning using A Reloop 4000M and Reloop OM
So what you're saying is, I should get an original pressing?
I really wish people would point out what the difference is with the one already on discogs when they add it.
Rollin' & Scratchin', Rock'n Roll , Revolution 909 are one of best songs.Around The World is one most annoying songs ever.But definetly best DP album
This album has some awesome parts and some not so awesome parts. I can hardly make it through all 7 minutes of Rollin' & Scratchin'. Rock'n Roll is almost painful to listen to. Maybe they will grow on me. The rest of the album is really good though. Some of my favorites are Revolution 909, Fresh, Teachers, and Oh Yeah.
Seems there are two different UK and Europe Embossed cover issue's (V 2821) the difference being that https://www.discogs.com/Daft-Punk-Homework/release/236605 does not have a cover sticker whilst https://www.discogs.com/Daft-Punk-Homework/release/2947655 does have a cover sticker. The version without the sticker is more popular. You're welcome ;)
One of their best albums ever. If not their best. Definitely worth it! This album still holds up after all these years.
Which version of the LP is the true 1st Press? The embossed?
I bought it 1997 and i played the record a thousend times at home and on parties (dj) Definitely one of the best house albums and definitly! the best "daft punk" album....!
Mine has the number 106 written underneath the Daft Punk logo on the A and C side
Daft Punk's first venture into the music scene that became legendary. True Diamond on cassette!
Homework is a major contender for best record ever made... every song is just fantastic with an amazing sound (and incidently, this re-release plays absolutely fine on my 19 year old entry level technics record player)
Completely and utterly classic, very influenced by Chicago House, pretty harsh sounding at all times, but in a fun way. Da Funk has those funky bass lines, Around The World is a dance floor classic, and Alive is a real club mover and a staple of DP's live shows. Discovery is a more accessible house album, and Homework isn't for everyone, as some of the reviews here show, but for late 90s French techno, you can't get much better than this5/5
avoid this copy like the fucking plague. absolutely atrocious, whoever pressed this needs to think about how they actually press a record.
This being their first album you can tell they are well rooted in techno and house, and over time they worked in their more varied influences. Just listen to who they name drop in Teachers - lots of true tech and house legends. For lovers of underground house and techno, this is a gem, and my personal fave. People who think their subsequent albums are better are fans of the more popular influences. I personally love the underground tech and house DaftPunk more, but respect to DP on their progress based on their varied love of all music.
HUGE record, amazing it's 19 years old and still sounds Ffressshh! absolutely essential disco house, solid 5/5
What happened to the embossed 2XLP? I had it in my collection and now its just 2XLP!
as a teenager grown up in the 90s, i think that this album was one of the greatest musical creations of that wonderful decade. the new generations who find homework boring compared to the newer DP albums, should slow down a little bit and take the right amount of time to listen and get in touch with this absolute masterpiece. it won't be wasted time.
this is more of a mixing album than a 'listening all the way through' album. all the more reason i love it.
This album, for me, is overrated. Yes, I know my opinion goes against the popular one, but aside from two or three stand out tracks, I actually find the album quite boring. Not bad for a listen at home, I've only ever heard 'around the world' played out. The album is mostly lacking in energy and is not as funky as some believe it to be.
You are so darn opinionated , saying that "The album is mostly lacking in energy and is not as funky as some believe it to be" ...... your highness must be having high merits , which the "average" listeners lack ...... if your outlook on dance music is so miserable , look elsewhere and leave as alone to enjoy the fat , funky basslines and the swing factor !!!!!!
pananusblue The album is mostly lacking in energy Seems we've been listening to different albums because I found it to be very energetic.
You've lived a seriously sheltered life if you've never heard Revolution 909 or Indo Silver Club in a sweaty basement.
I just never got this album or could understand the hype, or why even listen to this in 1996 (or at any time for that matter) with cajual/reliefs immediate back catalogue as just one example, bizarre. of course i have heard this album many times, how can you not, but this has just confirmed my first impressions
One reason - it kick started the whole filtered house scene which followed for the next few years.
Anyone else having trouble with tracking on this vinyl? Especially on Rollin' & Scratchin' I've got a lot of skipping, on two different record players. Vinyl was new and sealed, so I'm assuming the grooves are absolutely in order.Currently using a Lenco L75 with stock tonearm and Pickering XV-15 cartridge. This is fine equipment but sadly I don't have a gauge to check my tracking weight (which I should have, I realize)..... However, if anyone has similar problems, it might simply be an issue with the vinyl, not my setup.Any particular tips?
I'm having a problem with the used copy I just bought. Vinyl looks pristine, but skips on track B6 "Fresh" in the same spot every time. Have cleaned it and no change. Using Technics 1200 turntable and Ortofon club stylus/needle.
Try putting a lot of weight on your tonearm and add a penny to the cartridge holder. Then, start with no anti-skate, then gradually change it if skips occurs. I have/had the same problem, but what it is, the grooves on that song is outta whack. Nilz must've had a really hard time trying that track. Guess that's why it's called Rollin' and Scratchin'. It's 'rolling' off the grooves of the record while at the same time, 'scratching' it.
I've noticed skipping a lot too. I think increasing tracking force should help. I attached a small head weight to the needle and I noticed less skipping, though some was still there. I also had a new copy.
I just picked mine up yesterday. Yes mine skips like crazy on rollin and scratchin, also on around the world. I was noticing some of the last few grooves at the end of "rollin" has got some waviness to the grooves. I wonder if thats what causing the skipping. Hopefully Virgin records has a better quality pressing of this vinyl.
It's an issue with a particular lot of the release. I've gone through three copies, all having the same issue on the same tracks. Increasing your tracking force may help, but the center bore is likely the culprit (as was the case with mine - Insound). You can rebore the disc, but the equipment to do it properly is not commonplace.
Most people, especially fans of DP's new material, complain that this record is boring, repetitive, sterile. I too had the same feelings about it for a while. I can't tell you how to change your mind, just give it a couple of listens, put it down and listen to some other house tracks/albums, and come back to this one after a while and give it another go. And maybe the next time you listen to a house track, you get the feeling the producers didn't get it quite right like Daft Punk did on Homework. The kick drums never quite as relentless, the bass never quite as deep, the hi-hats never quite as crispy, the groove never quite as organic and the licks never quite as funky. And then when you play Homework again, by the time Daftendirekt is over you realize Homework is not trying to revolutionize or sell itself, but instead is just 70 minutes of leisurely grooving, crystalline house intended as a timeless record meant to be enjoyed for no other reason than the love of groovy music.
There's nothing more to add! A really well-written comment.
Watch out for this exact release, it's faulty on the press somehow, it's skipping alot on all sides... I bought 2 copies each from different stores and they skip on the same tracks at the same places... I tried it on different record players and it was the same result... If you want Homework, get yourself an older release
I was using Shure M44-7 needles with no problem on this repress. No scratches, clips, pops or skips. I guess I got lucky?
Legend 33
Wow, same happened to me and I went crazy cause I thought it was the turntable and I sent it to repair... I lost like a 70€ for this...
Damn,mine skips too.Gonna buy the first press.
Doesn't skip on my Pro-Ject with Ortofon 2M Red. I got lucky :-)
I have to agree, my copy skips on Da Funk
If I have to believe what's on the internets, a proper needle on your turntable can really make a great difference in this respect. Still, that's of course no excuse for pressing records this shitty.
Do yourself a favor and find the old copy, i works perfect
I've had the same experience. I was really disappointed when I bought it. :(
The "funny" part of this story is that i got my self a old copy from 2001 and it works perfect... Don't know why it skips on the new release but it work perfect with the older releases
I had the same problem originally when I bought this release last year. It always skipped in the exact same places (notably during "Da Funk" and "Rollin' & Scratchin'", two of my favorite tracks from this release). I only just decided to try it out on a new turntable, and surprisingly, it plays flawlessly. I don't know what the difference was (the first turntable's needle might have been slightly older, though I've never had any similar problem with any other record), but all hope might not be lost for your copies. That said, if you're looking for this record, I would still be wary of this release, as it is undoubtedly sensitive.
Easily the most overrated Electronic Music LP ever produced. Whilst some of the tracks are funky and fresh [Around The World, Fresh, Revolution 909], most of the album is stuffed full of uninspired Techno & House. Pretty much all of the other tracks are boring and go nowhere. However the tracks I have mentioned are very forward thinking and influential, though still fairly boring compared to Discovery
1 of the best album of the all times
I have two copies of Homework and one of them has glossy laminated inner sleeves and the other one doesn't. That one (glossy) doesn't have NilZ on the runout while the other one DOES. They both have the same barcode and catalog number though. Are there any experts or knowledgable Homework collectors out there that know which release is which?
Really it comes down to the runout wax. This variant on this page properly denotes runout information. Look close at your record and all the different releases here: http://www.discogs.com/master/view/26629 and see if your variant is there. If it is not in the data base you can Copy to Draft an existing release that is close enough and tweak it to your release. Then submit it as a variant. The NilZ is seen on a white label promo here: http://www.discogs.com/Daft-Punk-Homework/release/2414200 so it may exist in the database just may take some digging. Cheers
This album completely shook up the house scene as soon as it was released, I have fond memories of those days. The french filtered sound that followed was a direct result of this album. Daft Punk have never managed to equal the high's of their debut release, although some of their solo projects have come close.
Spot on- esp with their solo projects coming close.
Daft Punk’s Homework is probably one of the most cited electronic record from the French country, be it not by unbiased listeners. The good thing is that, in its linear approach to dance music, the tracks are quite versatile. It goes from the straight and kicking techno from the happy “Phoenix” to the disco leanings of the excellent “Around the World”, which is probably the best track here, offering a beautiful - almost melancholic - twist midway to its deep and accessible groove. “Revolution 909” is a typical example of how catchy house music can get, utilizing the drum machine to the max and putting the bass under it with excellent timing. But herein lies the problem - most of the other tracks on the album come off as monstrosities trying to do the same and failing, especially showcased by the second half of the album. Tracks like “Indo Silver Club” and “High Fidelty” miss the hooking elements that should make them worthwhile. “Burnin’” has an awesome building bassline, but only after you have waded through 15 minutes of absolute garbage in the form of “Rollin’ & Scratching” and “Rock’n Roll”. And that’s not even mentioning all the filler on the album like “Daftendirekt”, “Oh Yeah” and “Funk Ad”. “Fresh” and “Da Funk” fortunately take a different approach to the dancefloor, but the unbalanced mixing of elements of the latter doesn’t quite do it for me. The epitome of mind-flattening music comes with “High Fidelty”, where a sample is looped over and over again as if it is made by a child playing with his first music mixing program. In the end, the main disappointment is that Homework underlines the wrongful prejudice dance music should be repetitive and mindless to a ridiculous extreme. This album sure is influential, but just not in a good way.
I won't discuss the quality and relevancy of this album here & at this point in time - others did it far better and i guess it would take a while. One thing though : the "Shouts to" and especially "Respect to" listings on the sleevenotes are absolutely mandatory. Any kid digging music and inspiration through this album's sleevenotes (and also through the namedropping on "Teachers") will be hit straight by hot new cool musical worlds, and might experience a life change through music (and style) ; and i guess the robots deserve big kudos for that simple fact (as a start).
Buddy, you were called out as a troll but denied that you were. The only other option is that you're a hipster. Oh my god, that's it! You are an elitist hipster - possibly one who's in denial. I will bet you $50 that one of those artists Daft Punk listed was playing on your kitschy, retro record player (because that's all you play is vinyl), but as soon as you read their name in the liner notes, they were to henceforth be considered shit. Just look at your hipster-esque reasons for hating. I mean, you're so put off by DJ Funk's song titles. Do you find them childish? Did they offend your vegan sensibilities? You also bash their "commercial urban toss" choices as if anything that has sold more than 5 copies and wasn't pressed as white label by an "underground" record label is a badge of shame (is underground too mainstream of a word for you?). And did you honestly rip on Daft Punk for their skills in alphabetizing? "DP also exhibit a basic ignorance of the alphabet: one of the very few decent artists named, David Bowie, is listed under 'D'. Quincy Jones is filed under 'Q'. Utter idiots."What the hell does that even mean? Where the Christ should David Bowie be filed if not under D?!? How much Dust-Off did you inhale before writing that?Oh and for the hell of it, I took a look through your record collection that you've listed on Discogs. For someone who has such a hate-on for commercial music, you sure seem to have a boner for collecting it.
Super P
@ christheboy2 Considering that you think them to be utter idiots you have spent quite a bit of effort unpicking their shout-outs list. It seems strange that you would be so interested in artists you have so much dislike for. Also I had no idea that track titles had to be works of great literacy. 'Atlantic Jaxx' made your 'toss' list and this label put out some great house records before Basement Jaxx blew up (good enough for Derrick May to drop in a mix cd I used to rinse). Fair play to Daft Punk for giving some love to artists who inspire them - they're not forcing you to buy it. Some people share the music that moves them, others hate on music they don't like.
Yes, trolling has its charms. I don't practice it myself as I value my time too much, but I can recognize a quality work. Although if I was you I would have added Deeon ('suck my D until it turns blue') and Paul Johnson ('Whose pussy is that?') as other DP-credited fine examples of the mighty ghetto Chi-house, which fun, funkiness and yes, coolness, apparently doesn't hit you. Then about your other meagre 2-3 examples, obviously isolating a few more or less debatably weak names out of a 120+ exemplary list is a joke. So yes, Boo Williams, Daniel Wang, Red Krayola, Dan Bell, Rob Hood, Luke Slater, Beltram, King Tubby, Spike Jonze, Stereolab, Scott Walker, Sun Ra, Spacemen 3, Love, Chic, Can, Gemini and many more wrapped together by two 20+ year-old artists on the pre-internet era of early '97 is a remarkable action of eclectic, valuable culture sharing (one could still perceive at this point hints of the then-disappearing utopia of 'unity' and 'housenation' values, whatever this could mean), and yes this list is still relevant 15 years later for anyone willing to dig cool music on a quality open-minded basis, and yes, considering DP's influence on the following generations and music trends, this 'shouts list' is a blessing. And i don't even mention here the more local-based particularity of the 'extra shouts' list, which gives a quite accurate and interesting overview of the early 90s parisian and french scene, plus some of the ones to become ; a useful document for any techno historian willing to investigate further in the future.
It's 2011 and this album is every bit as playable as it was nearly 15 years ago. Da Funk and Around the World are the highlights of the album, but its just a completely well-designed release. I'm not even much of a house listener and I love this album. This is a good lesson on how to make an EDM album - no filler tracks, just good music. Probably an all-time classic, and a must have for any self-respecting electronic music listener.
Near disco, in the form of Around The World & Da Funk, through to some of the harshest techno known to man in Rollin' & Scratchin' - yet somehow it all sits together coherently. Doubt every track on it would suit every ear, but it's undoubtedly a classic album - and to many, Daft Punk's high water mark.
Lots of classic tracks on this album, my favourites being Revolution 909, Da Funk, Around the World (obviously) and Alive. The rest I can easily do without most of the time, though it makes for nice background music on hot summer days that you can sway your hips to idly. It's not the best or most radical Daft Punk album by far and it's obvious they have since long moved on from this sound but it's still a classic house record and a testament to their early sound.
here are the samples :1.'WDPK 83.7 FM' / 'Da Funk': "Rock Bounce Roll Skate" (beat) performed by Vaughan Mason & Crew and 'I'm Gonna Love You Just a Little More Babe' (drum break) performed by Barry White (uncredited). 2.High Fidelity': 'The Way You Are' performed by Billy Joel (uncredited). 3.'Indo Silver Club': "Hot Shot" performed by Karen Young. 4.Around The World : Good Times by Chic5.Burnin' : Down To Love Town by The Originals6.WDPK : Musique by Daft Punk7. Teachers : Catch Me On The Rebound by Loletta Holloway (theory) , Head by Prince(drums) (theory) , I Want To Break Free by Queen (Theory.8. Fresh : The Way you Are by Billy Joel & Piano man by Billy joel 9. Funk Ad : Da Funk by Daft Punk :)
Around The World is the only fairly decent cut. The rest of the Homework album is total CRAP!!!
You cannot leave out Da Funk!
Overrated and repetitive. electronica isn't repetitive utz utz like the haters say, but daft punk unfortunately brings their opinion justice.
0 and 13? too many frenchmen here.
This surely brings me back to 1996! A cool breeze of electronic basslines and plain beats. Back then there was no stress yet in the sound. It could all still be relaxed and fun. The music unfolds in an easy manner. Really great music and never lets me down! The only thing is that it is a bit slow compared with the shit from now. And I never liked the artwork! Hahaha! I think it's so ugly! But it's all about the vibe of hte music ofcourse.
Dorstlesser Haha how can you not like the artwork! That iron-on patch makes it extra nineties :D Iron-on patch? That's fine silk embroidery, which may or may not have been popular in the nineties.
Haha how can you not like the artwork! That iron-on patch makes it extra nineties :D
You know, after listening to all the tracks on Homework, I can't help but feel this is a pretty overrated album. I feel that half of the songs are excellent, but the other half on here may as well not even be considered songs at all. It's a rather strange contrast. The first half of the album starts off really great with Daftendirekt/WDPK 87.3, Da Funk, Around the World, Revolution 909, Fresh, all these really great songs. And then you get to Rollin' and Scratchin' (which shouldn't be considered a song it's so terrible, what's so good about this song?) and that's where Homework just falls flat. It feels like Daft Punk just stopped trying and started mixing random crap together, whilst looping it over, and over, and over again. Burnin', Rollin' and Scratchin', Rock N' Roll, and Oh Yeah are just noise tracks (although Burnin' has an excellent bassline, it's a shame it's overshadowed by the horrible DJ scratching and fire alarms), Indo Silver Club and High Fidelity are ridiculously repetitive and annoying. Alive and Teachers aren't bad, just not all that great either. And Funk Ad is...Da Funk played backwards for a minute. What a waste of space! How can you go from some of the most revolutionary house songs of all time (Around the World, Da Funk) to just plain noise all in one album? What were they thinking on some of these tracks? And the excellent B-Side to Da Funk, Musique, should've been on here as well in my opinion. But instead we got...Rock N' Roll and Rollin' and Scratchin', two tracks that make me want to break the CD so that no one should ever have to hear them. Oh gee, how wonderful.Overall, buy Homework for the great first 7 songs or so (plus maybe Teachers), and forget the other 7. If you already have the singles for Around the World, Revolution 909, and Da Funk, the only thing you're really missing out on here is Fresh, and you already have Musique to boot.
Golden Lama
The real waste of space here is you buddy. :)-
What is so revolutionary said and done on 'Homework' that Telex haven't pioneered two decades earlier on with matters electronic dance? Daft Punk surely made it revolutionary for the late nineties on the verge of a dozen retros; impressive and switching over into numerous pulsating extremes. However, every robotic twitch, every stripped down groove frenzy here no matter how impressive and harsh - 'Homework' still sounds more like taking the piss out of everything, itself included.
Back in '96, you couldn't go to a French rave without hearing "Rollin' & Scratchin'" at least once in the evening. If there ever was one proper "rave classic" in France then, this is the one. So when people later found out that Daft Punk had signed to Virgin for the release of "Homework", they were accused of selling out and foreign DJ's playing "Rollin' & Scratchin'" to make us happy started to get booed quite regularly. Everyone was sick of hearing that same old Daft Punk track at every party, but little did we know how much more we were going to hear from them ! Just when we had our fill and were expecting a more insane track from them, we got quite the opposite: "Revolution 909", "Around The World", "Burnin'" and their remix of I:Cube's "Disco Cubizm" - 4 tracks that made them highly popular in the then-suddenly revived club scene and highly unpopular in the then-suddenly declining rave scene. I do believe there's a before and after "Homework", but most youngsters' biggest mistake is to believe that there was nothing worthy of interest before Daft Punk, and I happen to believe that it's just when techno culture was at its prime !
Love it or hate it, Homework has carved out a niche for itself in electronic music history. I remember when this album hit all the big stores back in 96, like Best Buy and Sam Goody. It was that "techno album" everyone was saying. I'm not sure how they were able to negotiate such a huge launch, but it became clear rather quickly that their appeal extended far beyond the underground club scene. As simplistic as this album is, there is a certain uniqueness that I've never heard since, from them or other producers. Maybe it's the nostalgia I get when re-listening years later, that certainly plays a role. But it's hard to deny the extreme funk in some of these productions. Even the massively overplayed 'Around The World' has a timeless funk that is impossible to deny. I don't recommend any DJ ever playing it out again, in their lifetime, but great for the bedroom jam session. 'Da Funk' and 'Burnin' are right up there in the category of techno-funk masterpieces too. But my favorite has to be 'Teachers' with its shout outs to the great producers before them, and that beat is just so freakin fresh. Breakdance music for robots. Love it or hate it, Homework is a classic that will be heard by many future generations of techno-house lovers.
This album's importance in electronic music history may have only become apparent recently, nearly 10 years after its release, for it can be readily observed how commonly at least some aspect of the style portrayed here has been knocked off by other artists to freshen their own productions. Quite strange, considering it is an album that basically explores the past, ranging from disco ("Fresh", "Indo Silver Club") to Kraftwerk-esque minimalism ("Daftendirekt", "Da Funk", "Around The World", "Alive"). Combining an element of a more modern outlook on club sounds ("Revolution 909") and that something that makes it all Daft Punk ("Rollin' & Scratching", "Rock N Roll"), you have yourself quite a unique album and one whose importance should never be underestimated.
This album was my gateway drug to electronic music, and for that, it will always have a special place in my heart. That said, most of the tracks on here still appeal to me even though my musical tastes change with time. Many of the tracks are not quite as mainstream friendly as the big singles, but I find myself liking those too, especially Rollin' & Scratchin' and Indo Silver Club. While I wasn't as impressed with Discovery (though I did like Interstella 5555 a lot), this album is just a classic to me, and I love it through and through.
Stunning, stunning album. Proper thumping, warped minimal techno and house. When I first got it, I could only listen up to 'Around The World', while everything after that sounded too harsh and horrible. A year later, everything before 'Rolling & Scratching' sounded like disco music for pussies. Now I get it all - it's 100% man-music, and one of the all-time greatest electronic albums, if not THE greatest.
In my opinion, this album is really overrated. It definitely has some great tracks ("Around The World", "Da Funk", "Revolution 909"), but most of the tracks are plain and uninteresting - just beats and some weird sounds... Maybe it was inspirational back in 1996; maybe it really was the turning point for house music, I just don't know... But nowadays, this album does not sound fresh. Daft Punk's second album, "Discovery", is much much better, but for some strange reason, it is quite underrated.
On initial listening, this album may come accross as not much, untill you realise that you've been listening to it constantly for a while, and it hasn't gotten boring... The successful nature of this Album becomes apparent when you realise that it is the sheer subtlety of production on these tracks that lifts it above the rest. This album contains some of the most sublime basslines committed onto a release. Every track has it's place on this Album and is paced to give an excellent listening experience throughout the entire LP, every track is there for a reason and they lead into each other very well. Well written, well compiled. A classic study in compiling a coherent album - from start to finish. Top shelf - All killer, no filler.
maybe there are 2-3 interesting tracks on it. the rest is boring garbage -just playing around with stupid beats, loops and filters. Nothing really special to it. Don't believe the hype!
Absolutely brilliant all the way through - this is the album that gave house a kick up the arse. I just wish someone would give Daft Punk a kick up the arse now. Talk about falling from grace...
