5.0 out of 5 stars Blitzering Bop, 6 Feb 2009
This review is from: A Cross the Universe [Limited Edition] (Audio CD)
Where the album "Cross" showed signs of absolute "oh my god" genius (Genesis et al) it did labour in places and until I saw them live I suspected that the lazy Daft Punk comparisons were tired truths. The reality is that Justice are harder and better than The Chemical Brothers and The Prodigy in the live environment. I am hoping, like The Prodigy, that their live experiments will morph into a new studio album because if they do it'll be blistering and they will become legend. In the meantime this CD is the peak of recorded Justice. For some reason there are a few reviews here that are mindlessly slagging the DVD because it's handheld, has low production values and doesn't have talking head interviews. I'm sorry but if you want an Electronic Press Kit become a journalist. This is the best fly-on-the-wall touring band documentary I have ever seen. It's absolutely hysterical and unbelievable. True the live segments (no whole tunes here) are distorted but that's what makes it...its like watching The Ramones playing electro. Think Radiohead's brilliant "Meeting People Is Easy" and add violence, sex and drugs and you basically have it nailed. I liked Justice before I saw this, now I luv em.
