First of all, if you are new to Daft Punk, mostly because of Random Access Memories or the Tron: Legacy soundtrack and looking for more of their music; and you are not otherwise into electronica /house/techno, this is not a good place for you to start. Your next album should probably be Discovery, as that's the closest thing to DP's more recent work in their back catalog. If you can't get into that, you'd be advised to just stop there.
This debut album is really early-- 1997, actually-- and is hard core club music: very loopy, very repetitive and mostly made to dance to. And very electronic. That is not to say that it lacks depth, however. Active listening reveals many surprises and subtleties that make trancing out to it a great experience. So if you like good electronic music, this needs to be in your collection.
