  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. Songs you thought you knew are put through the spin cycle--each track deftly fastens together at least two of their best--so even if you're the level of devotee who owns 'Homework' in every format, you'll still be impressed by this heavy load.
  5. This is the first-rate live album that Electric Light Orchestra should have made but never did.

    The result is a happy souvenir, best experienced among 12,000 of your closest, Ecstacy-popping friends. [Dec 2007, p.144]
  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.

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

    Daft Punk is a duo of two French electronic musicians who pioneered the house and electronica genres in the 90s and early 2000s. TheirDaft Punk is a duo of two French electronic musicians who pioneered the house and electronica genres in the 90s and early 2000s. Their originality and boldness is what drove them to success with a couple of their earliest albums, Homework and Discovery. The success of these albums fueled the creation of their reiteration album in 2007.

    Their album, Alive 2007, is an impeccable and nostalgic rendition of a collection of live assembled mash-ups of their best songs that we have all come to know and love. This album demonstrates Daft Punk's capability to flawlessly blend their earlier classics into 13 independent tracks. The build up to their previous hit, “Technologic”, used in the 2nd track in the album, “Touch it/Technologic”, perfectly sells the nostalgic feel into the heart of the listeners. The infusion of their hits, “Around the World” and “Harder Better Faster Stronger”, started with the blood pumping beat from “Around the World” and excellently transitioned into their tune, “Harder Better Faster Stronger”, while maintaining a consistent beat. In conclusion, Daft Punk's album, Alive 2007 is a wonder full combination of classic Daft Punk's classics along with their ability to mix songs live, on the spot.
