If you were disappointed with the last Daft Punk album, Hystereo offer you the chance to hear the best album the Gallic duo never recorded.

With echoes of Homework as a blueprint, the fortified funk of "Deale" and "Let's Do It" are certainly as good as "Burning" or "Da Funk".

Made in Dublin by Gaelic boys Jack Byne and Conor Murphy this concoction of bombastic beats and gruff basslines is certainly as good as anything the French cognoscenti have created in a while, with cuts flexible enough to rock any DJ set or simply nod along to at home.

The in-ya-face "Executive Memo" comes across like The Prodigy on speed as earthy rock chords sitopposite synthesised, bass heavy riffs to create a monstrous number that'll appeal on so many levels. Similarly "IPO" rides soulfully warm and inviting melody creating a near apocalyptic MAW-feel a track that's easily as good as Alan Braxes' "Intro" from a few summers back.

Whatever way you wanna call it Daft Punk had better watch out!
