The French electro duo Justice, part of Ed Banger's Paris crew of techno punks, started making noise four years ago, moving Converse-clad indie-kid feet with their hit remix of Simian's "Never Be Alone." They don't bother with intricate touches that would get lost in compression - they go straight for the jugular, which makes them declasse for dance aesthetes but gives them plenty of bonehead sonic punch. "D.A.N.C.E." has a children's choir chanting the title, over Chic bass and harshly hissing strings. "Genesis," "DVNO" and "Waters of Nazareth" deliver thrills a la classic Eurotrash like Army of Lovers or Sheila and B. Devotion. With loads of melodrama and not a moment of subtlety, Justice define the new-jacques swing.

Simply excellent. "Genesis" welcomes you in Justice's electroworld with an "edbanging" beat, then you don't stop nodding with "Let There Be Light" that fades into the "D.A.N.C.E." thang that stays in your head for hours and hours. After saying "Do the dance !" many times your jack turns into a "Newjack" with its unstoppable indecipherable vocoded "voice". And the two parts of the ENORMOUS "Phantom" thing getting you tuned for the rest of the album including the wistful and beautiful melody of "Valentine" fading into the Uffie rap on "Tthhee Ppaarrttyy" with a ccooooll bbeeaatt that goes into DVNO with another bizarre-rapping. "Stress" matches perfectly with its title, but is so good that even if it stress you you can't stop it. Than, "Waters of Nazareth", huge huge huge nodding-track. And the last track, "One Minute to Midnight" is one of the coolest noddingtechnotrack you'd ever hear in your entire life (when you are waiting hours in the train or when you're in the bed waiting the sleep, this track makes you smile stupidly), and then 8 seconds of "BOOM BAM BOOM BAM BOOM BAB" and it's the end of Justice's first LP after only 12 tracks... We want more !
