As one of approximately twelve people in the NYC area that DID NOT make it out to Coney Island this Summer to see what was obviously the concert of the year, I'm thrilled that the new Daft Punk Alive 2007 is finally released today. Now I can recreate the sensation of having a couple of crafty French dudes in helmets blasting crazy-hard disco beats at my face and insane sound levels...at home. In fact I'm doing it right now as I type this post. Now I'm gonna call the missus in to turn the light switch on and off to the beat.
OK, so it's not quite the same...but the music part is damn close. Alive 2007 is a pretty fantastic album, doubling as a live document of their tour and a just-in-time-for-the-holidays hits album.
Don't just take it from me, stream the whole thing right now at AOL Spinner.
