Justice A Cross the Universe

On this live CD attachment for the Parisian duo's tour documentary, Justice almost redeems itself by making another album of dirty French electro at its diabolical best. As expected, they overload the pomp and hack up house beats into sputtering, un-oiled rhythms where mere cymbal splashes could blow out speakers. While live tweaks imbue "D.A.N.C.E." with new life and mange to make Uffie's rap cameo about 5% less painful, Justice cuts off too many songs right when the momentum builds. "We Are Your Friends" is little more than a two-minute jukebox sing-along. On the other end of the spectrum, they also overindulge in 10 minutes of garbage-disposed synth riffs on the finale, "Phantom Part 2.”
