A.V. Club

It isn’t a bad record, it’s just a really different one.


Audio, Video, Disco is an exceptional followup to the band’s debut, and in drawing from classic rock influences becomes something of a classic in its own right.

No Ripcord

In A.V.D., Gaspard and Xavier have proven that it's still possible to produce relevant, fresh-sounding electro without the need for obscene basslines or other such gimmicks.

Consequence of Sound

Audio, Video, Disco provides just enough evidence to hint that Justice may be the dance act to eventually lead this generation.

Beats Per Minute

Audio, Video, Disco does have its flaws, feeling over-confident and overblown at times, but ultimately it’s an enjoyable record


They spent all their daring on concept, with little to spare for execution.


It’s a real shame that this effort has not expanded on that sense of unhindered fun and joyous melody.


Released on October 24th, 2011, "Audio, Video, Disco" is the second album by the French electronic music duo Justice.

Justice wanted to make this album something very laid back and countryside-ish. They kept the daytime music and complex beats, making the overall music softer.

Fav Tracks: Planisphere; Helix; Brainvision; Horsepower; Audio, Video, Disco.; Canon

Least Fav Track: Parade



Please Justice, unless you get the guy from DVNO, don't bring anyone to do vocal performances in your songs.
Said that, this album is not as bad as I remembered, it's certainly more entertaining and better executed that Woman, but I still don't find a reason to listen and to come back to this very often, I trully just listen to this thing once or twice and then just continuing listening to ✝ in my regular basis. I like the intention behind it, I like the ideas that this album brings to the ... read more


Planisphere carries


Quite the downgrade from Cross. It feels like they wanted to go for a more laid back but grandiose style, unfortunately they ended up creating something that never really kicks off or finds it's footing. Not to say these are "bad", the sound is great and all but just that most tracks come and go without much happening. Nothing really stick in your mind. It's also seriously lacking in the technical prowess displayed on the debut.
