Daft Punk: Alive 2007 (Album Review)
What more could a Daft Punk fan ask for than Alive 2007, hard evidence of the enigmatic French electronic duo’s adulation-filled summer tour? Recorded at the Palais Omnisports Paris Bercy stadium in Paris last June, the album plays like both a continuous best-of and a remix project, with the occasional, unobtrusive swells of a crowd in awe.
Naturally, because this is Daft Punk, innovation is a given. Songs you thought you knew are put through the spin cycle – each track deftly fastens together at least two of their best – so even if you’re the level of devotee who owns Homework in every format, you’ll still be impressed by this heavy load.
