About this deal

On October 27, 2022, the song New York, I Love You but You're Bringing Me Down, was the final song played on WNYL Alt 92. For the recording of LCD Soundsystem's following album This Is Happening, Murphy brought one of the original pieces of silver fabric to the album's recording studio in Los Angeles and hung it in Rick Rubin's recording den, the Mansion. People can get more than a bit up themselves analysing the influences, often at the expense of the music. Robert Christgau, writing in MSN Music, remarked that the album contained "one song so irresistible it makes you think the other tracks are songs too, which sometimes they are," [29] later assigning it a two-star honorable mention rating.

Not only does it drop all those stylistic references we love here at Piccadilly Records (punk-funk, Krautrock, early 80s Euro-disco, post-punk guitar music etc), going far beyond the simple pastiche of many bands around vying for the LCD crown, but then combines these with some excellent song writing from James Murphy.Sound of Silver, his second as LCD Soundsystem, is as close to a perfect hybrid of dance and rock music's values as you're likely to ever hear. Uncut 's John Mulvey stated that "Murphy's talent is to proudly flaunt his influences, and to mix them up with belligerence, an exhilarating grasp of rock and dance dynamics, and a powerfully snarky sense of humour. Pitchfork named two of the album's tracks ("Someone Great" and "All My Friends") in the top ten tracks of 2007 [38] and the album itself was named the second best album of 2007. But possibly the greatest thing about LCD Soundsystem -- and The Sound of Silver -- is just how goddammed infectious the whole things adds up to be. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

I'm not sure if you rapidly skim the same articles as I do, but apparently 72% of the internet is now made up of free mp3s, while another 14% is accompanying blurbs.

A dance-rock record from a former punk agnostic, this hybrid of 1970s art-rock and more traditional dance elements.

A few months after the release of Sound of Silver, the band released the digital-only compilation EP A Bunch of Stuff, released on September 18, 2007 ( 2007-09-18).

We're besieged and stupefied enough by downloads and mixes and remixes and mashups and collections of songs masquerading as albums that an album that feels like an album strikes me as positively ideal right now.

Los Angeles Times critic Ann Powers wrote that Murphy "succeeds by stretching in two directions -- finding a new musical center, and showing his humanity beyond the laughs. The album was released jointly through DFA and Capitol Records in the United States and EMI elsewhere, first on March 12, 2007, in the United Kingdom.It's an absolute joy to listen to, for every possible reason, not the least of which is because, these days, those epiphanies feel like they're coming fewer and farther between. not exactly designed for hit singles, LCD Soundsystem gave us a weighty release with a short number of long songs that straddled the gap between man and machine with a peculiarly sincere melancholy which sounds exactly like a sad iPod walking to work at the end of October. The group's later released an EP, entitled A Bunch of Stuff, which was composed entirely of covers, alternative versions, and remixes of songs from this album. On March 12, 2007, to coincide with its official UK release, an underground remix version of the album was released online in aid of charity.
