Review - Woman
pepper - january 17
FOR THE MYSTERIOUS FRENCH DUO
, Justice, creating a disectro (disco + electro) tune with no shelf life seams as easy as A. B. C. Something not quite as easy, however, is creating new hits after a decade of grooving success with their dance floor favourite, D.A.N.C.E.
A classic case of ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,’ Justice have given their reputation justice with the release of their third full length album, Woman.
Like previous sounds, Justice have crafted a captivating and powerful disco-funk wrap with analogue-style vocals to boot.
An unfamiliar sound ten years ago when Justice first came on the scene, now the D.A.N.C.E duo have another French pair, Daft Punk (otherwise known as the modern-day king of pop), to rival with their killer party starters like Loose Yourself to Dance and Around The World.
It’s hard not to hear the similarities between the two French groovers, which leaves the question: do we need both?
A little healthy competition isn’t a bad thing and let’s face it, the more uplifting and lavish compositions under an electro-funk banner, the better.
Put simply, if Daft Punk remains the modern-day king of pop, Justice’s new album Women is the Queen.
As they say, behind every great man is an even greater woman. So watch out King Punk, Justice have returned and they are bringing their royal music righteousness back to the D floor.
Available on iTunes for $9.99. iTunes rated 4.5 stars.
