I first came into contact with Justice when I saw their video for D.A.N.C.E. on MTV. The video clip with the dynamic t-shirts is cheerful and beautifully crafted and proves to me that Internet has not killed the videostar quite yet. Then I saw that friends were playing the record on their last.fm account and thought it was time to check out the whole album. The album title † and the dark cover make it look like a death metal band but looks are deceiving. Cross is the debut album from Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay who are managed by the folks of Daft Punk.
This is one of the few electronic albums in my collection that I like from start till finish. It is dark, distorted, loud, upbeat, cute (D.A.N.C.E. is the most cheerful song on the album, making it the perfect summer single), mythical, grande, getyourfeetonthedancefloor, great running/dish washing/treadmill food.
I cannot properly describe it, I am not a music journalist, I just want to tell everyone this is the best album I’ve heard for a while so “GET IT!”
