The most over rated, under rated band of all time returns for the third and last time, but what a great time.

One thing that made LCD Soundsystem stand out from the crowd with their previous efforts was their (or rather James Murphys) ability to combine just about every genre of music worth listening to, and every song worth listening to, in to a neat, pop/dance/rock package that suits everyone, that accessability has been carried on here and improved upon to create some much more commercial than their self titled debut.

All albums have a lead track and This Is Happening is no different, Drunk Girls is a simply stunning single and one of the best of this year for sure, aside from that this is an album that relies on its songs as a collective, to create something greater than the sum of its parts and so you wont find many more "singles" than the afforementioned.
If you own the previous albums by LCD Soundsystem then you will probably already have bought this, if for some confusing reason you have done neither then you you will find this album to be both complex and amazingly simple in its structure, utilizing simple catchy chorus's and bass lines but with complex and sporadic 80's dance mixed with indie rock, think early New Order and you are pretty much there. Infact alot of this album has a distinct 80's flavour to it, more so than the previous two albums even down to The Smiths "Hatfull Of Hollow" inspired front cover.

Enough picking anyway, should you buy it?
Definatly, i would highly recommend this to pretty much anyone and would seriously suggest picking up debut "LCD Soundsystem" and its 2007 follow up "Sound Of Silver" both are avaliable for a very fair price elsewhere on this site and are fantastic value for money given their way above par quality.

Also be sure to catch them for what is set to be their last tour as they are fantastic live.

Many thanks.

The altogether excellent "Sound of Silver" was a debut album of great quality, great fun and real originality. Spiky, cynical, comedic and very funky. An absolute must.
This is bigger, more knowing, with some weird moments that might appall some listeners but it all makes sense. It is still right in that irresistible groove.
Murphy is a David Byrne character for a younger generation. Hungry for knowledge and experience, his songs are full of psychological insight and incisive wit. This is dance music with a reward for the listener for repeated listening, Without doubt my album of the year so far.

 Excellent album but poor review above this

the album is excellent but i'm reviewing the above review from Masterwork and i have to say to him that Sound of sSilver is not their debut album. If you plan to become a music critic, document yourself first.
