  1. Justice? Talent to spare, but that doesn't stop '†' being just another frustrating dance music album.
  2. It stops short of SMD's effort by quite a way, but it's a fine and much welcome showing for a pair of self-professed amateurs.

    If you’re in the mood to get pummeled by simplistic, yet oh-so-effective samples and melodies, Cross does so better than most rocker-ready dance records. However, if you’re expecting to be saved by some next-level shit, this one’s not gonna cut it.
  4. It's all very outsized and uppity, falling right in line with the current dictum in dance music that every song must be able to be mashed up with both Kanye West and this week's indie-rock star.

    I was nearly crying when listening to the rubbishy Daft Punk's Human After All. Two years later, Justice's Cross made me smile I was nearly crying when listening to the rubbishy Daft Punk's Human After All. Two years later, Justice's Cross made me smile again. There are no highlight here that can come up with Around the World or Digital love (although DVNO and Let there be Light aren't that far), but it's overall better : there's not a single weak track ! It's maybe not quite innovative, of course, but what it does, it does it very, very well. That deserves a 10 in my opinion. Full Review »

    Sometimes derivative, sometimes exceptionally original and forward thinking, but always pretty unique and different, and better and more Sometimes derivative, sometimes exceptionally original and forward thinking, but always pretty unique and different, and better and more consistent than most music out there. It's one of my favorite electronica albums of the decade, and I'm a fan of Four Tet, Junior Boys, DIzzie Rascal, The Streets, and Caribou. Full Review »
