SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Daft Punk is playin' at my house.

And the album is the group's 2001 release, Discovery. The record runs a shade more than an hour, and it marks the group's transition from the Chicago-house genre in which it had been categorized to a more disco/post-disco/synthpop style of house music.

Daft Punk's two members, Frenchmen Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter are famously private, wearing robot masks and costumes during their live performances and public appearances. This practice only adds to the mystique of their music.

Discovery was met with largely favorable reviews such as an 8/10 from Spin, 5 stars from Q, and 4.5 stars from Rolling Stone. As of 2005, the album had sold 2.6 million copies worldwide.
The easily recognizable tracks can still be heard at raging parties today.

Tracks such as "One More Time," "Digital Love," and "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" will never lose their luster and will forever get people on their feet and wiggling around the room faster than most other songs.
