Purported to be James Murphy's last outing under the LCD Soundsystem moniker, this was probably my most anticipated album released this year. "Stop waffling Fizzee" I hear you saying, "is it any good?" Any good? It's magnificent. If you're confident enough to do an album opener at an unignorable 9 minutes, you set up the rest of the disc to be something pretty special. From the funky disco of "Drunk Girls" to the electric musings of "I can Change" there isn't a dud or filler track in sight, which is a refreshing change frankly. the Albums' tour de force though is a track called "You Wanted a Hit". I don't know who this is aimed at (us the fans, the record company, the media?) it contains the line " You wanted a hit, well this is how we do hits. You wanted a hit? But that's not what we do" And he's right if you want fantastically catch electro funk dance tunes, this is what they do. Brilliant.
Here's James, after reading my review.
