Audio Video Disco seems to take an array of unhip influences such as AC-DC, The Alan Parsons Project, Yngwie Malmsteen and attempts to fuck them into Daft Punk records. Surprisingly the album works because it forgets the rules of Moroder and turns their french disco into something that could easily be soundtracking Tron and the denouement performance in Revenge of The Nerds.
But, seriously it’s kind of a good album, I found myself actually enjoying the experience, there’s some earnestness within all that grandiose cheese and quite frankly any band that tries to make their synths sound different deserves respect in this Foster the People(yes they really are the Jesus Jones of modern times) laden dancefloor era.
For a band that could’ve written themselves into irrelevant…I find myself willing to vouch for Justice’s ability to bring the good times. Will it just napalm the dance floor? Probably not. That may be exactly why I like it…But, then again like the creators of this album I also have an array of Yngwie and Alan Parsons on my iTunes.
