This review is from: Alive 2007 (Audio CD)
I've always been more into bands like The Cure and Pink Floyd but every now and then i'll try a random cd from the dance section in a hope that one day i'll build up a nice collection. After discovering Gabriel & Dresden, Digitalism and SMD i thought i'd check out Daft Punk last week for the first time. Picked up 'Alive 2007' and stuck in on in car on the journey home. Let's just say my 20minute journey home ended up 45minutes as i didn't want to turn it off!
The first track is perfect to get you in the mood, and having now listened to the album versions i can say that these live mixes are seemless and perfect. Each song just rolls into the next and the vocals are let lose with perfect timing.
Highlights: usually i'd pick some..but the whole cd is amazing. It's is one of those rare cds you can play from start to finish with no fast forwarding and no track skipping.
A fantastic advertisement for this type of music...if people who did not like anything dance related heard this instead of all the rubbish that you often hear then they would likely have a change of heart!
It's just jumped straight into the top 5 cds in my collection!
