Biography

From Daft Punk’s first single release in 1993, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter were hailed as a new breed of electronic music innovators. Following their seminal debut in 1997 (Homework), the band went on to release two more studio albums (Discovery-2001, Human After All-2005) and two live albums (Alive 1997, Alive 2007), winning them both critical and popular acclaim ...

Been listening to Daft Punk for a while now and love this live album.

You really feel the energy of the crowd in these songs, and you feel like you're right there if you close your eyes.

Overall, Alive 2007 shows that Daft Punk has mastered live improvisation of computer music.

I've always liked Daft Punk, for me, but their albums never stay in rotation for more than a couple weeks without getting old. This live cd, on the other hand, is absolutely amazing-- I've had it for a few months now, and it still blows my mind.

You really feel the energy of the crowd in these songs, and you feel like you're right there if you close your eyes. I've heard the live show is "the best concert anyone has ever been, or will go, to", in the words of a friend. This album does a pretty good job of getting that point across.

The remixes of the songs are fantastic-- the melodies of different songs intertwine wonderfully. My favorites on the album are "Robot Rock/Oh Yeah" and "Television Rules The Nation/Crescendolls". Seriously, though, you won't find a fault with any of the songs. They're all great, easy to love, and even easier to dance to.

If you're a fan of electronic music, you HAVE to buy this. It's easily the best house/electronic album I've heard in a long time.

I enjoy electronica music and I reviewed the Deadmau5 "For Lack of a Better Name" CD. Awesome album, by the way. Incredible! In any case, a rather pleasant series of comments followed including a few recommendations for selections which I might like. One of the Amazon reviewers, P Harper, said: "Gary! Gotta go with Daft Punk!!" Well, that's a good suggestion. Daft Punk appeared on my Amazon recommendations list several times and I appreciate the confirmation and the little boost.

In looking over the Daft Punk selections available, I decided to go with a set of Daft Punk Alive albums for several reasons. One, they were a good deal. Two, I've never been to a live electronica concert and my prospects of going are very slim. I'm 74 and would probably feel very uneasy at such a concert. I used to go to New Wave concerts (Devo, Blondie, Oingo Boingo, The Beat, etc) when I was in my forties and I really stood out then. Can you imagine a 74-year-old guy at a Daft Punk concert? Sorry, I just can't take that much attention. Well, in any case, I really love the music, it's great to listen to at home and the Alive discs give me a good feeling for what an electronica concert might be like.

The Daft Punk Alive 2007 CD is is overwhelming! It's one of the best live recordings I've ever heard irrespective of the genre of the music! Without question! It's just awesome! In a lot of ways it reminds me of a "Greatest Hits" album where your favorite band or performer presents all those songs which you have learned to love. The difference is that I've never heard Daft Punk before I bought this recording. I suppose it's a Daft Punk greatest hits assortment done up in bright new fashion especially for this dramatic occasion.

We all know the album is great. But the 2CD limited edition is worth every extra penny/ounce of time you spend tracking it down. It comes as a beautiful glossy book, with 50 pages of photos, and an amazing bonus disc featuring the encore (Human After All and Music Sounds Better With You!). BUY THIS.

This is absolutely fantastic album! It is like an orgasm for your ears. Daft Punk truly masters the art of mixing in this fantastic blend of all their past and current greats. I was at the July 27th Alive 2007 Concert @ Berkeley and this really brought me back to it. I relived the concert when listening to this CD. The crowd cheering, clapping, and singing along really adds to the ambiance of the recording. The One More Time / Aerodynamic mix was really something special and you could feel the energy of the crowd exploding! The deluxe edition is worth the extra money because you get this really nice case which includes a booklet with pictures from the Alive 2007 tour which featured the most amazing light show I have ever seen. And the second CD has such a great mix. When you pop the second CD into your computer it goes to fullscreen and you can watch the awesomeness that was the Harder Better Faster Stronger Alive 2007 performance live; it is even cooler because it is shot from close to a hundred angle (Daft Punk handed out video cameras before the concert and told people and then compiled and mixed them into this great video!).

Overall this might be the best album Daft Punk has ever produced. I know that I love it more than any of their others (and I LOVE their others haha). I would recommend this album to anyone who is a fan of dance, pop, electronica, or music in general. It is a pleasure that your ear drums are begging for.

This album is just harder, better, faster, stronger, and more technologic than anything you have ever heard and you need to show it some digital love at least one more time after you originally listen to it, because we are human after all, and not superheroes. It won't be too long before da funk leaves us and we are no longer alive. So let us robot rock!

"Ro-bot. Ro-bot. Ro-bot. Rock. Robot Rock." So begins over an hour of nonstop music of exactly that--a rock concert performed without a single acoustic instrument, only computers and digital processors controlled by two Frenchmen in robot costumes. Covering a good portion of their large catalogue, Daft Punk's Alive 2007 album is a greatest hits of sorts for the duo--the way it may be played at a party rather than on a radio; songs transition from one to the next with little silence and often without a track break, they have increased sample and phrase repetition as well as dedicated time to building instrumental arches (of pre-recorded samples), and from start to finish thousands of screaming fans in the background bring the live experience to your living room. On the whole it is a technosonic masterpiece--bringing together electronic music, electroacoustic music, looping altered in real time, and real time digital alteration of the fundamental characteristics of sound (timbre, frequency, amplitude, duration, and envelope), all rooted in prerecorded samples.

Though it is a complete work, the album is frontloaded. My favorite parts of the album are contained within the first five tracks, engrossing the listener through the first half hour in a very punchy and hook-based style. While there are certainly highlights over the next eight tracks there are also sections which seem to drag and let the listener become disengaged.

The first two tracks of the album work together to draw in the audience with pounding bass and a focus on (sampled) vocals, while utilizing some basic live computer manipulations to create the music in real time.

Not shipping until late February 2008? WTF?
If you can't find it here, you might want to go to other cd stores to check it. Last time I went, they still have plenty of them. Here is not the only place selling cd.
