 LCD Soundsystem: Dance Yrself Clean

A new LCD album is a very exciting prospect, I've been a massive admirer of James Murphy's project since Daft Punk was playing at his house. LCD's first album was brimming with original ideas and formula's for uniquely crafted songs, Losing My Edge, Tribulations, Too Much Love and the momentous Daft Punk Is Playing At My House all contributed to one amazing LP. Then we had Sound Of Silver which didn't disappoint either with - North American Scum, Someone Great, the hypnotic Get Innocuous, the brilliant Time To Get Away and the euphoric All My Friends marked LCD's second LP as 2007's album of the Year. 

So the big question is can he do it again? Well, I've given the 3rd album, titled This Is Happening a good listen and all I have to say is a resounding HELL YES! This tune, the opening track is the first of 7 epic tracks all clocking in over 7 minutes and beyond. Starts as a slow paced easy little jam intro before clashing in at 3 minutes with a pounding electro beat that is pure LCD at heart, next up is the shortest tune on the album Drunk Girls which was the first track to be released as a single, bringing in a bit of garage punk it's the new Daft Punk is Playing at my house. But while the album has the unique LCD flavour it still breaks new ground and treats us to some magical moments. One touch sounds like LCD remixing an old long lost Depeche Mode track while All I Want sounds like what David Bowie should sound like now with soaring guitars and pop hooks a plenty. I Can change is The Human League jamming with Kraftwerk on an electro-ballad with heart felt words of love. You Wanted A Hit is all about writing hit records and or their accidental hits, a low-slung bass epic, 9 minute groover. Pow Pow is the new cousin of Losing My Edge, followed by Somebody's Calling Me which is like Iggy Pop's Nightclubbing for the future-disco kids. The album ends with Home, a long catchy groover with a baseline reminiscent of Losing My Edge, a nice mellow end to another outstanding LCD Soundsystem LP. Can't wait for the live show next week at Brixton Academy.
