  • Summary: The second live album for the duo features the June 14th, 2007 concert at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 17 out of 22
  2. Negative: 0 out of 22
  1. The master DJs blend all their biggest hits into one enthralling, seamless mash-up of pumping bass lines, steady drumbeats, and cooing vocoders.
  2. This is a compulsively listenable album, through and through, and one of the best live albums I’ve ever heard.
  3. The results were massive--the myriad "best show ever" kudos deserved.
  4. Nothing can quite match the in-person thrills of the current Daft Punk live experience, what with the robot costumes, onstage pyramid and body-rattling beats radiating out into the blissed-out faithful. But Alive 2007 comes pretty darn close.
  5. 70
    The result is a happy souvenir, best experienced among 12,000 of your closest, Ecstacy-popping friends. [Dec 2007, p.144]
  6. This is the first-rate live album that Electric Light Orchestra should have made but never did.
  7. If you were there and want an audio-postcard of the night when noise and flashing lights broke your brain then add four to the given mark. Otherwise this is like pretty much every live album: pointless and skippable.

    Oh Yeah! It was too long since their 1997 daftendirktour, but they've been alive around the world one more time! What a dicovery this album was to me, it just washed my brain. My teachers tell me the most fresh musique is rock n roll, but the rock from these robots is harder, better, faster and stronger than any other artist! Expand

    Amazing. I can't believe they realized such a perfect mix of all their most fantastic songs, and all seems perfectly natural and spontaneous. Just listen to "Da Funk/ Daftendirekt" mix to understand. Greatest album made by them of course. Over and over better. Expand

    flawless live album, everything that is good about daft punk rolled into an incredible hour+. great listening experience you wont soon forget. The track lead-ins are fantastic, and the French duo manages to make material from their alright album 'human after all' seem fresh and energetic. Expand

    This album remains my most played album ever, with over 3000 plays. Each and every track clearly shows the amount of precision, effort, and confidence put in by Daft Punk and the result is surreal. Expand

    I haven't scored many albums a 10 out of 10 yet until now. It's one of the most essential music collections in electronic dance music (EDM if you will) and one of the most visually stunning, conceptually inspiring and innovative live events in music altogether. It'd be equivalent to committing a sin to not recognize Alive 2007 as a masterpiece. It's biggest achievement and treasure -- aside from actually making their 2005 "dud" Human After All feel at home in our hearts after all -- has to be the remixes of "Around the World / Harder Better Faster Stronger", which has alone inspired the careers of electronic musicians such as deadmau5 (not solely, but a prime majority of it). Although not technically "perfect" by any means, all music has minor flaws -- so do humans and even robots. Perfect scores should be awarded to dedicated pieces of music, concerts, or in this case, altogether, and Alive 2007 is just that. It's not an exaggeration when calling it essential to EDM. Expand

    Alive 2007 can be best described as a remastering and a re-invigoration of Daft Punk's earlier works. This doesn't make it bad however. This live project remixes the weak points from Human After All with Daft Punk's earlier works seamlessly.

    The result is an amazing performance that ranks as one of the most exciting I have ever heard.

    This performance truly is a treat to listen to, I highly recommend it.
