Product Description

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've just recently found myself leaning towards music from the Electric genre, and I have to say that Justice does it right. Their music has bits and pieces of all different types of beats mixed together to create some fabulous tracks. The DVD I did not care so much for, it's just basically like a diary that they filmed including clips of the concert itself.

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.

HASH(0xa2f2d27c) out of 5 stars Best live techno album...EVER June 18 2009
By Will Whitehurst - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love this album, both the CD and DVD. The live version of "We Are Your Friends" on the CD is enough reason to get this album, and the sound quality is the best I've heard in a live techno album.

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.

This is one of my favorite albums. If you like to bang your head to electronic music, then this is an excellent place to start. The bands' best music is best performed on this live album. If you don't get another Justice album, then get this one. They have truly defined a new genre, and I hope to hear more of this kind of music from them in he future.

HASH(0xa2f2dab0) out of 5 stars NOT HOUSE MUSIC Dec 10 2008
By Pedro D. Nunez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I waited quite a long time for this CD/DVD to come in, and I was definitely not disappointed. The DVD is something I'll have to get used to, but is presented in such a crazy way that I know I'll love it (just like Daft Punk's Electroma). It has some performances of the songs here that you definitely can't miss.

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!

HASH(0xa2f2dac8) out of 5 stars AMAZING!!! Dec 9 2008
By J. Romero - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD is amazing!! The mixing is as close to perfect as you can get besides Daft Punks Alive 2007 track selection is just the way it should be there is not one part of this cd where you are bored. The DVD is very good as well does not have a full video of a live set so don't think it comes with that but just shows how touring in the states is for Justice. A must have for anyone who enjoys heavily distorted house music or house music in general.

HASH(0xa2f2daec) out of 5 stars Better Than "Cross" Sept. 6 2010
By M. Diaz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I listened to this album after thoroughly enjoying "Cross." There is not a song I didn't like in "Cross" and they were all pretty darn good, some are near godly. So I bought this live album and ever since I first listened to it, I have yet to go back to "Cross." The songs in "A Cross the Universe" are more intense and much more enjoyable overall. They did an awesome job remixing them with different tempos and underlying beats. I can't do it justice by writing about it (I simply don't know that much about music to do so). But what I can say is that "CROSS" IS STILL AN AWESOME ALBUM, BUT WHEN YOU HEAR THE SONGS IN "A CROSS THE UNIVERSE," YOU WON'T BE GOING BACK TO "CROSS" ANYTIME SOON. Some negative things a can say about this purchase is that I think they over used the line from "Never Be Alone," "TTHHEE PPAARRTTYY" could have been better but it's still cool, and I wish they included "New Jack" and "Valentine." Also the DVD is enjoyable but I don't see myself re-viewing it again; but, like I said, it's pretty enjoyable. It's hard to complain about this album bundle, especially with an amazing encore cover of "NY Excuse" and "Master of Puppets!"

overall, if you love "Cross" or Justice then you should totally get this!
