While I was in high school, I respected Daft Punk, more so for their Discovery album than Homework, because on Discovery they combined those funkified drum machine beats with timeless pop. Though now with the release of their live album Alive 2007, I now see the light of the smörgåsbord of beats that is Homework. On the Alive 2007 album, Daft Punk combines the beats and music of their songs to make a continuous set long mash-up of their own material. This layering technique gives songs that previously were tedious or repetitive new texture, new flavor, and most of all new life. the sledgehammer riffs of Human After All glide on the Beats of Homework with touches from Discovery for extra groove and the formula rotates all throughout. There is a reason that Daft Punk have remained incredibly influential, and not only relevant but dominant in the dance music genre over the last 10 years, and this is just more supporting evidence.
