French electronica legends Daft Punk’s third studio album was the chart-topping, award-nominated Human After All.
Released by Virgin on 14 March 2005, it has a mid-2000s electro-house sound which is a raw synthesis of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo’s first album, Homework, and the lauded melodies and colour of its follow-up, Discovery.
Crucially, it was smashed together in a remarkably speedy recording process (for maximum immediacy) and with deliberately punchy editing and brutal harmonics which perfectly illustrated the duo’s examination of our love/hate relationship with technology.
