    What Audio, Video, Disco does best is show off what a pair of good producers can really do-namely, simplifying technical musicianship into head-throbbing dance music.

    Audio, Video, Disco might just be the quintessential example of pop music in the Internet world where everything is available, and available to shuffle, but the main point is good times, great record.

    Sure enough, this record brings to mind airbrushed vans flying through Day-Glo galaxies firing lasers at dragons, with no interest in any notions of good taste. Having said that, it fucking rocks.

    That push-pull creates a tension that makes Audio, Video, Disco feel like an exciting exercise on the way to something more developed but not a cohesive or particularly welcoming album.

    A game-changing debut like Cross is nearly impossible to follow up, but Audio, Video, Disco is about as self-assured as a second album gets.

    Audio, Video, Disco teeters on the edge of self-mockery, not an unfamiliar position for Justice.

    It would appear that Justice's schtick on Audio, Video, Disco largely involved soullessly regurgitating the sounds of rock and roll's past into faux dance music.

Their first was a dance electronic album to use for making parties more fun. This one expresses some more subtlety, expands on their range, and really allows you to put the brand "band" on them (as opposed to DJ). I'm supremely pleased with this album (I was pretty pumped about their first one too) and have officially labeled them one of my favorite "bands" out there right now. If you like music, buy this album! Expand

    It is intriguing how people can not understand the new Justice album. The French duo did exactly what it should have done, made â

It combines rockEven though I usually like reviews from Tiny Mix Tapes, they are COMPLETELY wrong! This is one of the best albums of 2011! It combines rock and electronic music to an amazing extent. It fuses together great beats and awesome vocals to create an immaculate album. The best tracks are: "Civilization", "Ohio", "Canon", "Parade", "New Lands", and "Audio, Video, Disco". Get it now!!!

    Critics probably don't like this album simply because they don't like prog. To claim it's not a strong enough commitment to using a progCritics probably don't like this album simply because they don't like prog. To claim it's not a strong enough commitment to using a prog formula is ridiculous. Prog is used like any other style they draw from; for its sound as an addition to their overall pallet to be used in a DANCE music format. I happen to like prog, especially Yes, but as much as I like Closer To The Edge I wouldn't dance to it. Expand

Justice deserves the benefit of the doubt on this album: yes, it is different, but they are still tackling a focused idea - a synthesis of two genres (despite what Tiny Mix Tapes would like you to believe). Instead of tackling the extremely epic disco/dance sound again, they decided to go for a more alternative electro/rock style. Was the transition that bad? Any worse than Daft Punk's transition from Homework to Discovery? I don't think so, but, then again, I am not one of the published metacontrarians on this site. Expand

Hardly any 'filler', plenty of good tracks, and some great ones. It takes some strange turns from baroque-period music and even classic 70's synth, lots of interesting synth patches and different themes. Nice one Justice! Expand
