  • Summary: The second live album for the duo features the June 14th, 2007 concert at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy.

  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.

    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.

    Truly, a refreshing way to release a greatest hits of sorts. its familiar while still being new.

    To anyone that understands what a DJ set is there will be no mistake of considering this album brilliant. The live show is being considered by many the best concert ever. I was lucky enough to be at their LA concert and from a jaded concert-goer perspective I was blown away by the experience. I am just glad that this album exist to let me feel with every listen simply ALIVE. Expand

    Easily one of the better works from this prestigious duo. "Alive 2007" contains a flawless execution of house and memorable charm which was already present in the original songs. This is the perfect daily dose for you rave and techno/house lovers out there. Expand

    One of the very great Live albums of our times, this album encapsulates the energy and versatility of electronica and house that Daft Punk so vehemently pioneered in the 90's and 00's. If you listen to this and don't wish you were there, sweaty, battered yet oh so happy, then maybe you should think about retiring from the DJ scene. 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
