Product Description

BBC Review

James Murphy, the man who is LCD, has earned himself a tidy reputation in recent years. As one half of production duo DFA he's produced some of the more trendy bands to come out of New York. The Rapture and Radio 4have both felt the benefit of his disco punk sensibility.

He's probably best known over here for 2002's "Losing My Edge", in which an ageing hipster (Murphy, obviously) rants about his cool muso credentials over an addictive and perversely simple bass line. It couldn't help but make you smile.

And what we have here is 2 CDs of James' own stuff and yes, let's get a little excited over it. He's a generous chap as the second CD sports the Soundsystem's singles so far, including "Losing My Edge", "Yeah" and "Give It Up";top tunes for fine art students to do hoovering to.

This leaves the first CD to live and breathe as an album proper. It's the length of an old vinyl record (45 mins), with 9 tracks on it. There's even a slow track at the end, the VERY Eno-like "Great Release".

And yes, the hip references are all there. Can, The Gang of Four, Prince, The Fall, PiL etc., the cool stuff from the NME hall of fame! Murphy is witty and funny and knows what's good about the music he likes. He doesn't sound cynical, just knowing and aware - and he definitely knows how to play the cow bell.

His lyrics are often more spoken than sung, but his voice has an engaging weediness - sort of nerdy and aggressive at the same time. You can't really sing lines like 'Daft Punk is playing at my house' anyway, though there is a pleasant lyricism to the druggy melancholy (in a late-period Beatles style) of "Never As Tired As When I Wake Up". At one point I even found myself looking for the lyric sheet, but that might be taking things a little too seriously.

So, all in all a toe-tappingly good album and much more engaging than the music he's produced for other people. Pop may have eaten itself, but its s**t can still smell mighty good. --Matt Harvey

A few of these reviews have been attacking this cd for being boring and repetitive, and yes, in all honesty i can see where they're coming from... but if you like music that's not frightened to stick with a cool beat for a few minutes longer than most pop songs - then you'll love this.

Basically - what you hear is what you get. It's like a daft punk album - after you've heard one or two tracks you know pretty much what to expect. The first lcd song i heard was 'losing my edge', which i thought was completely amazing and led me to buy the album, which completely met all expectations.

So this album might well not be your thing... but the only advice i can give in that respect, is that you make sure to listen to at least one or two of the tracks before you buy it, so that you won't then have to complain in reviews about what a waste of money it was...

I dance to this record. I dance so hard i get headaches and those little flickering stars areound the edge of my vision. I don't dance. Ever. And this album makes me want to... NME in their own smug way praise this all the time... And for once, they're right about someone other than Bloc Party... James Murphy is a god. It's true to say if you like anything for Foo Fighters to Daft Punk and back again, there will be something for you on this album. From the cd1 opener 'Daft Punk is playing at my house' you know you've found something special... And then you get to 'Give It Up', my personal favourite on the album... In terms of dance music, I haven't been this excited since On The Ropes by Mint Royale was released... And Give it Up is now my weapon of choice even over the mighty 'Shake Me' (one of the best dance tracks of our generation). The only reason this won't sell is because people today are shallow minded. One side like 'alt.'. One side likes 'crunk 'n'... whatever it is this week'. This merges them, throws it out a window into a vat or toxic waste, soaks thoughroughly, spin drys and then jumps in the mud...
'There's every kid for miles at my house, my house'... With the cd in you'll possesion, they'll have good reason to be there!

I have come to the conclusion that James Murphy is God!!
Its as simple as that.Without doubt he is a musical genius.
Apart from the fact that this double CD has got to be the bargain of the century at just under £5.00,the musical content is breathtaking.You could say that James Murphy is the avante garde of new wave dance music but the sound is also anachronistic and reminds one of the blooming of the dance craze following the demise of the punk era.That is partly its appeal in that it takes you back to that vital new period and surrounds you with a warm glow as you listen to it.
Every track of both CD's has got musical merit.Each is lovingly constructed often exploding into a storming finale that defies belief.Just listen to track yeah (crass version)on the second CD to see what I mean.
This is music to glory in and I defy you not to want to dance when you hear it.There are comparisons to be made no doubt and one of the first that struck me was Nine inch nails(Trent Reznor).To be honest though on second thoughts its a poor comparison because although there are similarities in the style of music and vocal delivery it is vastly inferia in its viscoral attack and intelligence.
Apart from everything else I have mentioned this album is wonderfully produced.If you have a half decent Hi Fi system it will sound amazing.
If you have a very decent Hi Fi it will blow your socks off and anybody who is demonstrating Hi Fi equipment for a living should have this CD at the top of their pile because it will show off the sonic ability of a system to perfection...or the shortfalls come to that!!
Finally can I just mention LCD's new album the sound of silver.

It was probably a stupid idea, but this album was purchased on the off-chance. After hearing no material from LCD Soundsystem, i bought the album for the track entitled "Daft Punk Is Playing At My House", on the grounds that i love Daft Punk. What a happy coincidence!
The Album sounds wonderfully electronic, a plethora of electric and eclectic sounds. The Opening track, which i previsouly mentioned, is fantastic. James Murphy's roaring howl preceeding a catchy bassline and kicking drum line. it's here we see his passion and enthusiasm. The song is a brilliant idea, that his inspiration is coming to play at his house, and he spends time making sure that he is ready for them.
The first disc carries on in this vein, simple electronic synth patterns that are used to devilish effect, as his lyrical ability is at times somewhat questionable, but is always perfectly suited to the music.
The second disc, although not as strong as the first, still delivers, with stand out tracks beign "Tired" and "yeah" (both versions)
Overall, if you've heard the "Daft Punk Is Playing At My House" single on the radio, then yes, the rest of the album is in a similar vein, and although i can't see this album being a mainstream success, that makes me even more proud, that i am a kepper of such a great musical secret!
