Daft Punk Alive 2007
- Words: Ross Holland
- Label: Virgin
- XLR8R Rating: 7/10
A year ago, few people had seen the live Daft Punk spectacle, and that was part of the fun. Their latest release captures the duo live in front of 18,000 fans at Paris’ Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy, but after numerous high-profile performances (and even more low-profile bloggings), some of the excitement may have drained. That’s not to say the tracks here aren’t exhilarating; almost every cut is reworked or mashed up, and with each build-up, the anticipation in the arena is palpable (think: futbol match). As a live electronic album, this is a huge success; as a historical document, stick to the Coachella YouTube videos.
