    If only I was on the audience. If you liked Cross, then this should be in your blood. Every redone song makes me think how they take their great original songs and makes them feel fresh and new, like a distant memory. And that bonus documentary is also a nice touch. Damn it Justice, now I'm singing where ever I go. I don't even think it's possible to hum electronica but hey,it's pretty fun.

    In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
    And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
    And God said, Let there be light: and there was "Justice".

  1. Here, the pre-recorded sequences of fan favorites "DVNO," "Tthhee Ppaarrttyy," and "D.A.N.C.E." are born again; flipped and redecorated with aggressive house beats to the point that they feel fresh, but they still retain enough familiarity to get fists pumping and mouths singing along.
  2. Newcomers to Justice will find A Cross the Universe only an occasionally endorphin-boosting experience, with most of the rest of the record a polished, if soulless recording of a group nearing the height of its powers.
  3. Adhering closely to the template of Daft Punk’s two seminal live albums, crowd noise is mixed high, becoming another instrument as it responds to every hook with a spine-tingling roar.
