Daft Punk's Discovery is #15 on 20 Watts' Best of the Decade List

Part of 20 Watts’ Best of the Decade Coverage!

RELEASED: 2001
TOP TRACK: “One More Time”

Daft Punk’s Discovery could be a greatest hits compilation: each song, taken individually, is that recognizable – and that good. A sonic explosion of synthpop-flavored house, the album takes cacophonous sounds and morphs them into addictively melodic arrangements. Its genre- and medium-breaching accessibility helped launch house music into the mainstream consciousness, and for that, Discovery has served as a model for everything that came after it. This was, after all, the album that gave us “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger.” It’s no wonder that everyone from Kanye West to LCD Soundsystem has drawn inspiration here.
