Justice - Audio, Video, Disco
Record Label - Ed Banger
Release Date - October 24, 2011
The anticipation for a new Justice album has been great. Since the release of their fantastic debut Cross in 2007, fans of the Ed Banger duo have wondered how Gaspard Auge and Xavier de Rosnay could follow up to what has been considered one of the best albums of the 00s.

"an album crafted not for 2011, but for 1984" so true. I think the synths stick out more than anything on here, and the guitar part on "Helix" doesn't have as much as an overbearing role as on the other tracks; they found a way to blend it in and match it with the different sounds going on. Overall, it still screams "Justice", and it's definitely one of those "decide for yourself" albums that will separate the very critical fans from the ones who aren't so much.
That said, I'm still not sure of what I think about the metamorphosis yet.
I think this album is incredible. The first album tackled more disco/pop/70's era music, while still keeping a modern electronic/house feel, and now this album, which captures progressive rock. They're going after every style.
That being said, I hope Justice steers clear of dubstep, in all ways.
