Justice [black cross]
This is the record by the latest crazy French techno pop funsters, the ones I keep mentioning for remixing Simian's dreadful 'Never Be Alone' into the totally awesome 'WE! ARE! YOUR FRIENDS!' so I reckoned I would take a punt on this. On a first listen, my beloved commented "I already know what Daft Punk sound like", but since then we have really grown to love this, and it gets heavy rotation on Vinyl Sunday. The music is all of the pompous French dance that will fill the floors of ATP discos everywhere. The album opens with the glorious bombast of 'Genesis' before mutating into the kind of music you cannot but dance to, if you are human. 'D.A.N.C.E' and 'Stress' are probably particular favourites, while I am still a bit ambivalent on the one with a feat. by novelty rap sensation Uffie. Overall, though, this is a truly awesome album and one that must surely be a most serious contender for record of the year. I must learn off the words to 'D.A.N.C.E' and make up a dance to go with them.
