Explicit Version of this live CD + DVD+booklet release includes recordings of Justice's signature headbanging sets along with show footage and various hijinks captured as the band toured the US in March 2008. The Grammy-nominated French duo Justice spent 18 months touring following the release of their monumental debut LP. Justice was about to tour the USA for the second time, when multi award winning directors and intimate friends of the band, Romain Gavras and So-Me, taped every second of that three week tour that looks like it lasted 3 years. This documentary about Justice is about all the extraordinary things that happened. 'At the forefront of a new school of electronic music.'- NY Times.

I love how Justice's tracks all lead into the next song they are about to play which is exactly how their other album, 'Justice,' is set up.
Trust me, once you listen to this album a couple times, you'll really get a feel for the beat, and you'll feel like you are there listening to them live in concert.

But really, the best thing about A Cross The Universe is the DVD. It's a documentary film by Romain Gavras (French director who is the son of famous French film director Costa Gavras, who did the films Z and Mad City), SO-ME (the art director for Ed Banger) and Justice (Xavier de Rosnay and Gaspard Auge). The documentary isn't just about Justice's tour; it's also about their personal experience. In essence, this film is supposed to show the crazy part of live gigs and touring. Justice really is the rock band of these times, and this documentary shows that, with fast editing and dizzying camerawork that give it an acid-trip feeling reminiscent of other music documentaries by rock bands, like Let it Be, Sympathy for the Devil, or The Kids Are Alright. In terms of content, the strong language, nudity, drug and alcohol use (Xavier feeds aspirin to squirrels, for crying out loud), and actual violence (most notably a real fight with a bunch of drunk guys) would give this doc an R rating, but if you're over 13 this is probably appropriate.
Overall this is a must buy, even if you're not a Justice fan.
And the CD? PRICELESS. This is the live album I've been hoping would happen ever since I hopped onto YouTube and heard Justice cover Daft Punk's rendition of "Crescendolls" going into Boys Noize "Frau." Every track is remixed and sounds even better live, and listening to the album, you definitely get the feeling were treading the line between electro and rock. Personally, I like the combination!
The booklet in this CD/DVD is also worth having, and contains pictures mostly submitted by Justice fans. I can't say enough that this is an album worth having!
overall, if you love "Cross" or Justice then you should totally get this!
