The combination of all their songs from previous albums has led to this remixed album, right before Random Access Memories came out. The blitzing "Pimp My Pyramid" scheme. The pulsing honeycomb. The tiny metal heads bobbing up and down. The Lite-Brite leather jacket reveal. The dude in front of me who wouldn't let a pair of crutches stop him from dancing as if the apocalypse were mere minutes away. The sensual explosion that was Daft Punk's Alive 2007 show is difficult to overstate-- or reproduce. Even with the biggest, flattest, sharpest HD set-up, there's no way to sufficiently recreate the most exuberant LED-laden music blowout ever staged. So Daft Punk didn't even try: There will be no Alive 2007 DVD, since they already made Interstella 5555 as a film, which is my only favourite anime to date, since there’s no chinese or English dialogue, and it’s most likely songs from their previous album, Discovery, for the whole film. Anyways, Alive 2007 is the best remixed album to date, with its recontextualizes career nadir Human After All, turning previously leaden songs into ebullient rock'n'roll manifestos; injected with Homework's air-tight Moroder-style anthems or Discovery's flamboyant funk,Human After All tracks are constantly improved and born anew. The live set doesn't simply run through the hits, mindlessly segueing from one smash to another. Instead, well-worn favorites are glued together, cut-up and mashed into pieces. The titular refrains of "Television Rules the Nation" and "Around the World" combine to form the globe's most dance-friendly TV station theme song before the Black Sabbath crunch of "Television" is sent down upon the impossibly buoyant "Crescendolls", resulting in the disc's most unlikely-yet-spectacular roller coaster peak. Meanwhile, the awesome hiss of "Steam Machine" is atomized and given space-age dynamics, turning it from an oddball bore into a fist-pumping celebration of the industrial age. Wisely, the duo also know when to let the bass be, allowing large portions of classics like "Da Funk" and "Burnin'" to work their magic with little robo-meddling. Even without video, Alive 2007 is an exercise in exacting excess, from the blaring "Robot Rock" intro to a wide-eyed power-booster of an encore that layers "One More Time" atop "Music Sounds Better With You"-- a combination so ecstatic it would seem downright cocky if it wasn't so blissful. Therefore, this is why Alive 2007 is the best remixed album of Daft Punk.

This was the first Daft Punk CD I listened to and it was a great introduction. I love how they have layered their songs into tracks that are even more amazing.
