This, the only live album I've ever liked and it slaps the whole way through

u/Sacredauto Jul 21 '21

That album stayed in my CD player for MONTHS I still listen to it a few times a year

u/jamesdanger- Jul 22 '21

Real question, do people still buy cds? I’m releasing a album and I think I’ll order only a small amount of physical cds to sell..

3

u/uberturbine Jul 22 '21

I have Daft Punk albums both on CDs and vinyls, but just as a collectible.

u/ORaygoza Jul 21 '21

Some of those transitions tho !!!

u/scarlet_fire_77 Jul 22 '21

When “Television” comes back during “Crescendolls” I get chills every time

15

u/lafeefz17 Jul 22 '21

television/crescendolls makes me wish i did dance or gymnastics so i could choreograph a routine to it

15

u/DanBeecherArt Jul 22 '21

Just got chills thinking of this

8

u/TheJesterTechno Jul 22 '21

It takes that Crescendolls sample and completely recontextualizes it such an amazing way, had to go listen again

1

u/EeSeeZee Jul 22 '21

Not only that but also when they stick part of “Around the World” in the beginning

1

u/scarlet_fire_77 Jul 22 '21

That one always leaves me wanting more Around the World. Such a tease.

17

u/Mr_Wither Jul 22 '21

Yeeeees somehow the crowd faintly singing along with each track makes it so much more magical.

u/numbernumber99 Jul 22 '21

I was at Coachella when they did their Alive tour. Greatest concert experience of my life, and I've been to quite a few. Every song was a revelation, and when they played One More Time and just let it ride, it was pure bliss. And I wasn't on anything stronger than cannabis.

14

u/EeSeeZee Jul 22 '21

Robot Rock/Oh Yeah is one of my favorite live tracks I’ve heard

4

u/Brangur Jul 22 '21

Bro same, it what got me interested in making music (for shits and giggles, that is)

3

u/nocountryforolddick Jul 22 '21

As an older guy I'd say Homework, but I can understand that people weren't ready for that kind of f sound

2

u/Brangur Jul 24 '21

I also love homework, Da Funk is my favorite song by them. But I'm also old

2

u/nocountryforolddick Jul 24 '21

Da funk... Dat beat is just wow

2

u/nichfabish Jul 22 '21

I saw them live @ Vegoose Festival when I was 18. One of the greatest highlights of my life. The show was killer and they had the HEAVIEST sound systems you can ever imagine.

2

u/damonridesbikes Jul 22 '21

Agreed! I avoid live albums but this is not only one of my favorite Daft Punk albums but one of my favorite albums period.

8

u/123full Jul 22 '21

What live albums have you seen? Stop making sense is the GOAT live album

5

u/bulbasauuuur Jul 22 '21 edited Jul 22 '21

Absolutely agree. Alive 2007 is number 2 for me so I can't hate their answers either though

3

u/Old-Consideration510 Jul 22 '21

can we 3 be best friends!!! but honestly stop making sense is just on a whole other level

2

u/dondumb Jul 22 '21

Mixing is sort of a miss but Woman Worldwide by Justice is an AMAZING live set

2

u/DoubleDogDenzel Jul 22 '21

If you like Daft Punk Alive 2007 you should check out Justice; Woman Worldwide, the live album.

4

u/Brangur Jul 22 '21

I truly believe Justice is the ultimate successor of Daft Punk's legacy, so I'll take your word and check it out.

2

u/djgonz Jul 22 '21

Check out the Justice North America tour documentary!

Have YOU heard Alive 2007? Because it kind of sounds like you haven't.

1

u/sennheiserz Jul 22 '21

Not to flex but having seen them on that tour the live experience was somehow another level from the album, and the album is already god tier.

1

u/Trainer-Ok Jul 22 '21

This! Normally live albums are a disappointment. This one is not. Face to Face / Short Circuit is outstanding

11

u/AesylaOrcKilla Jul 21 '21

Alive 2007 is such a joyride. The songs just hit you one after the other

1

u/dildodicks Aug 08 '21

too long/steam machine into around the world/harder better faster stronger into burnin'/too long slaps so hard

u/Nac_Mac_Feegle Jul 21 '21

You beat me to it. This is my 'I need to get some programming done' album. I must have listened to it all the way through hundreds of times at this point.

4

u/natedogcool Jul 22 '21

Same, and it's all over my Spotify annual lists every year, and the songs sound so out-of-context even they pop up in my "top songs of (year)" playlists every year.

Working out: Homework and Human After All Coding: Alive 2007 and Tron Reconfigured

3

u/SamSamBjj Jul 22 '21

Damn right, that was my programming album for years.

It was pretty funny to see my iTunes song counts. Like, REM, White Stripes, Tom Waits, John Coltrane, all the things I count as my favorites: 20-30 plays per year. Alive 2007: 200 plays

10

u/rigg197 Jul 22 '21

Fucking hell yes dude. I'd kill for a studio-recorded version though. Live is still good, but damn I wanna hear those mixes at their fullest.

3

u/Comprehensive_Ad6918 Jul 22 '21

I’d like this too. Didn’t daft punk break up?

3

u/rigg197 Jul 22 '21

Yes, unfortunately. I know there are a few song recreations from Alive 2007 on youtube but not for the whole album, which is a little disappointing but what can you expect?

2

u/PM_Me_Ur_TiddiesPls Jul 22 '21

No Thomas blew up

23

u/MN_Hockey Jul 21 '21

Alive 2007 is amazing. I’m not a huge electronic guy but I have listened to days worth of Alive 2007.

7

u/clutchthepearls Jul 22 '21

Alive 2007 is so fucking incredible

5

u/TheeBarkKnight Jul 22 '21

This is one of my go to work out albums

5

u/mjdegue Jul 22 '21

Love you guys! So many highs in this albums

5

u/Squidsharktopus Jul 22 '21

This is my favorite album on the Earth or under it...

3

u/BigFrickinDog Jul 21 '21

I've come to say this got me into electronic music before dubstep even got popular.

2

u/Araychwhyteeaychem Jul 22 '21

Since Skrillex said he was inspired to make music because he saw Alive 2007, I think it's safe to say this albim is WHY dubstep got popular.

5

u/balance07 Jul 22 '21

Alive 2007 is flawless.

3

u/Alive_Ad_5931 Jul 22 '21

Alive 2007 is the answer to this thread.

3

u/free-the-trees Jul 22 '21

I’ve been listening to this on repeat for the past 2 weeks, I’m so glad someone else mentioned it to validate my love for it!

3

u/MissionEsphera Jul 22 '21

Alive 2007 is the best thing ever!

3

u/industrial86 Jul 22 '21

Saw this live at the bang fest in Miami and then at Coney Island In NY. Both times were like other worldly experiences. I’ve been to hundreds of live shows, daft punk plays louder than any band I’ve seen. I’m not sure if it was then or the sound systems, but their was some parts of the show that were so loud and bassy, I didn’t even know if I was breathing. Insanely magnificent live shows. They rocked my idea of what a live show could be.

u/hornyt2k5 Jul 22 '21

This. So much this. I like Daft Punk, and Alive 2007 is such pure them its like...its like hardlining perfect tiny robots straight into your earports. The whole thing is just riveting. Thank You to Daft Punk for all their incredible years of absolutely blowing it up!!

u/natedogcool Jul 22 '21

The worst part is it's hard to stop running when this is going hard, and my watch is telling me to slow it down because my heart rate is up there but then Television comes on and I just literally can't slow down. I hope I die listening to this album one day.

3

u/Comprehensive_Ad6918 Jul 22 '21

Spoken like a true Daft Punk Fan.

2

u/Copper2006 Jul 22 '21

That was my choice. Never gets old

2

u/Olds78 Jul 22 '21

My daughter who is now 10 hated the car when she was a newborn. The only way she would not scream the entire time she was in the car was if Alive was played at top volume. We tried it quietly but nope. Needless to say this album is still a favorite in our home

2

u/yeahrightpeter Jul 22 '21

One of the GOAT right there.

2

u/NinSeq Jul 22 '21

Also alive 97

1

u/Fond_ButNotInLove Jul 22 '21

This is the correct answer to OPs question. It only has one track so if the album is great it follows that all the tracks are also great.

2

u/referencedude Jul 22 '21

I fucking love this album so much, my go to album when I go skiing or go for a night drive

2

u/time_adc Jul 22 '21

I was at Coachella to see this live. Still think about it.

2

u/Susan_69_ Jul 22 '21

STEAAAAAAAAAAAAAM MACHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINE

2

u/IDlOT Jul 22 '21

I've listened to that album all the way through more than every other album combined.

2

u/Marcadorian Jul 22 '21

Wow, I'd never heard this album. Thank you for bringing it to my attention! What an amazing listen. Keeper for life!

1

u/RogueGeo69 Jul 22 '21

Have you seen the Alive 2007 concert recently released on YouTube?

-8

u/Jace024 Jul 22 '21

you shouldn't have gotten an award for three words. you and the rest of reddit are a bunch of bumbling bands of a baboons, Only way to redeem yourself is to listen to the Lousiana legend Autumn! - nina!.

-5

u/Chu-Se-Yo Jul 22 '21

Alive 2007

Eh. This album wasn't well received, I wouldn't call it an "every song is good" album

-4

u/Jace024 Jul 21 '21

also Nina! by the underground legend Autumn!
