Spotify has an embed feature called the Play Button that I didn't know about until recently. So I've decided I'm going to use it for a new Music Monday Album of the Week segment. Here's the catch. You need to have Spotify. It's fucking awesome, and it's free. Just click the link on the first word of this post (the one that says Spotify fuckheads).
I've been listening to my favorite Daft Punk album, Discovery, all day and I believe that's all I need for it to qualify for the DouBle B Reviews #MusicMonday Album of the Week.
I remember when Discovery was released in March of 2001. Having dropped out of college for the second time and moved back in with my parents (for the third time). This was pre-September 11, and I was a very irresponsible 20 year old itching to turn 21, and buying beer on my own was all that mattered to me. I don't miss those days one bit.
This was also a time that techno (at least that's what I'm gonna call it) was still pretty big, with bands like Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, and Fatboy Slim leading the charge. But Daft Punk was by far my favorite, and leading up to the release of Discovery it was obvious it was going to be a fantastic album.
The album also served as a soundtrack to an anime film called Interstella 5555: The 5tory of the 5ecret 5tar 5sytem. Which is as awesome as it sounds.
