This review is from: A Cross The Universe (Audio CD)
In general I don't like live albums at all, but these are other circumstances! :)
Justice show in their live performance how to entertain masses of people.
Most songs from their studio album 'Cross' are played, but much faster.
'Genesis' makes a first good impression, other songs which weren't fully convincing on their studio album are here the more convincing.
My favorite tracks are 13, 14, 15 which result in 20 minutes of musical mass hypnosis. Nice chanting 'We are your friends', suddenly mixed with Ministry's 'Just One Fix', going over into 'Waters Of Nazareth' which comes by so much harder and the better, then resulting in the ever rising 'Phantom Part II'.
Metallica's 'Master Of Puppets' in an even harder version finishes the live act.
Though a live album I prefer it to their Studio album 'Cross', which still is outstanding.
The only disadvantage of this album is that I haven't been on this tour...
The DVD is a documentary from their USA tour. Justice blow the minds and ears of their audience, just a bright Cross flashing in the front of the audience. The documentary is really entertaining, with lots of fans, marriages, police, a gorgeous bus driver and a lot of live acts. The DVD version is really worth it's little more money.
