Then I listened to Alive 2007, and I finally get it.
This album puts you right there at Bercy Arena with a raging crowd, a pulsing sound, and an intense, almost flawless greatest hits mashup of songs from Daft's complete history up to that point. Thomas and Guy seamlessly blend all of their work together into an hour-long medley that you won't be able to stop bobbing your head to, guaranteed. All of my issues with Homework and Human After All somehow just VANISH when you can hear the crowd cheering and moving to the beat, when the melodies of other songs compliment them so well. The meshing of songs that this duo manages to craft are so perfect that I can barely imagine listening to them any other way. Robot Rock? Can't listen to it without whispering "OH YEAH" to myself anymore. Rollin' and Scratchin' suddenly feels empty without a distant screech of "I AM THE BRAINWASHER."
Daft Punk are masters of the house and dance genres, and this album is a pure testament to that. If you're a fan of any of their work or even disregard them as crazy robots* who just cut and paste the same 4 beats to make a song, give this a listen. You won't be disappointed.
*Humans (after all).
On a nice system this recording reaches its limits really easily. Would be much better to have a clean soundboard recording so we can throw our own daft punk parties and do our own cheering :)
I'm not a fan of the album Human After All. This live album has some songs from that album so I was hesitant to purchase it. However, the live versions are not the same songs as the studio versions. Daft Punk mixes songs elements together with a lot more booming bass. Listen to the song 4 sample and you'll hear the difference.
The good songs from other albums such as Around The World come across nicely in this live album. In most cases, I think they are superior to the album releases. In the album versions, it is all very clean. The songs need the club style booming bass or it sounds flat.
The biggest downside to this album is how they treated One More Time. It's a great song but too short. If only the live version was as long as the studio version and had the slow build up in the middle of the song. I can live without Musique Volume 1 except for One More Time.
Some of my generations will put there nose up but a younger generation if you like to dance and like electronic., you will not find better.
