Are you insane?! was what got all(?) of Europe to fall in love with DP. If anything, was just a good follow-up that unfortunately got picked up by the noob pop artists here in the U.S. is good, yes. DP's House/Dance beats are much more exciting than what many consider their "kiddy" album. Even DP said that was a different sound. They were trying to re-capture childhood.
I can't believe that you don't like R&S. Ugh! I have chills going up and down my spine now.
Whenever someone asks me if I can give them some good DP, I give them . got a bad rap here in the U.S. for two reasons:
1. It came out in the early 2k's. This was when all of a sudden, pop was HUGE. weak...
2. Kanye West likes little boys... just sayin'.
So because of those 2 reasons, people only ever know 2 songs from ; OMT (their 1-hit wonder) and HBFS (Kanye and little boys).
I fart in your general direction, Baloo. Lol.

I thinkwas, and still is a great album,but i have to agree with ION here,. came out at the worst time possible, when pop was all the rage. Its because of that the album will never be fully appreciated for what its worth in the US.
, personally, is the best album out of the three, because it has that edgey chicago/French House sound unique to most house albums out there. Its got its kind of own flair to it, proudly saying f*** you to those who hate it. Its what got DP out there in France and what made them huge. I think all the tracks are perfect, even the intro (WDPK) and the Outro (Funk Ad), which couldnt be said for HAA (On/off=WTF) SOme of the songs can get a bit...."noisy" but thats what makes these tracks so different from and, arguably, even HAA. The insanity of R&S and Rock and Roll bring the tracks to life. I could say more about this but i think i've done enough lol.

Rollin' and Scratchin' = best song onfor me.
I don't understand how Funk Ad could be considered a waste of space by anyone.....wow! Look at how much space it's wasting! A whole 51 seconds! Damn, they could have fit SEVEN more songs into that space....ya. I don't think so. Not to mention the fact that Funk Ad is actually even better than Da Funk (well, almost....if it was longer).
I'm not saying you can't like a song, hell, High Fidelity doesn't do much for me, but it's just not my thing is all. I'm not going to call it overrated **** and say it shouldn't exist, because that's just wrong man.

Really, I'm just voicing my opinion on . Don't get me wrong, is a great album. And I'm not bashing people for liking it. But I don't think as a whole it's as super-fantastic as some put it out to be. But that's just my opinion really, and I know there will be people that will disagree with me. And that's perfectly fine really.

I must say that, out of all of DP's albums,is still my all time favourite after all these years.
Each track is unique (as on each of their albums), but you can so tell that they love what they made. I mean, look at musique v1? 6 tracks from and three from each of the others? If that aint love for their roots I dont know what is!
My personal feelings on each track are as follows:
Daftendirekt - Great introduction, ripped off a live set. It is genious, for using parts of Da Funk also, linking them together. And you gotta love the vox!
WDPK 83.7 FM - This should have been LONGER. As much as this is an excellent intro for revolution 909, I still recon here they should have gone the whole hog and put "Musique" here. Also, you ca still tell the links at the beginning of the album to "Da Funk".
Revolution 909 - What can I say? This track is full of Emotion (sorry, HAA). It is biblically good in my opinion, even the streets intro. The main parts of the song are just amazing and beautifully composed (especially at 1:25 onward... <3). One of my personal favourites.
Da Funk - Classic house, great funk sounds. Perhaps not my favourite track on , but still brilliant none the less.The middle of the track has possibly the coolest riff ever!
Phoenix - Used to be my favourite track on here. But it does have a very basic nature to it. Very progressive, clever use if instruments, and indeed very gospel-esque.
Fresh - Very relaxing, i'd go as far to say its slightly ambient, while not at the same time. The opening waves sets the scene, and I feel it is very crydamoure ish. Another Favourite.
Around The World - Only three words sum this up, and they are in the title. Seriously, this is a classic example of DP and probably their best known song. This MAKES imo. Funky bassline, guitars, and the vocals!
Rollin' & Scratchin' - Now we move onto the more "Controversal" side of . Which, oddly, is IMO even better! R&S still ranks as one of my all time favs, since it is the first track I heard from .
It is extremely progressive, and has many ingenious sounds. The screeching and bass make this one sound more primitive, but I get this song. It is called rollin' & scratchin' after alll. The sounds and name suit it massively.
Teachers - Sorry, but this is the track on here I listen to the least. Not because I dont like it, just it's the least memorable for me. I like the fact it is "thanking" and referencing their influences. I can't help notice that I'm not on there though :P
High Fidelity - Personal favourite on the whole album <3. Love the samples, the instruments, and how the whole package goes together. Extremely memorable and special to me at last. And generations will have headaches trying to decipher what that vocal appears to be saying. "Open Up The..."
Rock N' Roll - Unusual name in my opinion, as it doesnt match the song. Though it is basically a companion to Rollin & Scratchin, it still manages to sound different. Of the two, this one is the most simple. Still brilliant mind. Another Favourite.
Oh Yeah - This has a bit of dubstep to it i recon. Vocals make this one funky. And the deliberate overdrive of the instuments. Almost like a little break.
Burnin' - Despite the simmilarities to junior jack (who may have influenced them/ been influenced by this) this is a wholly unique song. I personalyl love the screechyness at the beginning, and everybody loves the bassline.
Indo Silver Club - Epic. Great use of a sample, good builds and overall an ability to take you in and make you listen. Luckily, it isnt as dark as ISC part one (which is epic still, and sounds like a gangster song to me), but it is memorable.
Alive - Their oldest track on the album. The final mix of the new wave deserved its place here. Still very dark, but as with most of , mixes very well into the final half (and on alive 07)
Funk Ad - It's just an addition, still goes well to outro the album. it's Like a reference to the beginning of the album, referenceing Da Funk once more. If anything, it sounds slightly better than the oriinal.
These are just my opinions, but i still think overall this is the album they worked hardest on, and was the best recieved.Cheers,
