At last. The long-awaited follow-up album to Justice’s debut success, (Cross). Known for their funky, disco-based approach to electronica, the duo has been selling out shows worldwide and has garnered a huge following since 2007.
Audio, Video, Disco is a worthy follow-up to (Cross), with a slight but noticeable shift in musical style, just enough to keep things fresh while retaining that classic Justice sound. The group has stated that this album incorporates a more “daytime music” sound as opposed to the bass-heavy, funk-inspired production of their debut.
Still, the music is solid, quite enjoyable, and very influenced by 70s arena/prog rock. I’m definitely not complaining. There seems to be more vocals this time around, which is a nice addition and reminds me a bit of MGMT. The beats and bass are still infectiously catchy and heavy, and overall, I actually liked listening through this album more as a whole.
What I like about Justice is that they produce all their music, refraining from using samples that many other DJs/producers tend to do. Their musical talent shows in their production, and I’m looking forward to more music by the group in the near future.
