LCD Soundsystem, or at least James Murphy, will go down in musical history. They are a truly unique band that will be sadly missed.
The London Sessions is LCD's tribute to the late, great John Peel and, whether you enjoy the dance-punk of LCD or not, it is a fantastic piece of work.
Listening to openers 'Us v Them' and 'All I Want', it's incredibly difficult to believe that this is a 'live' recording. Murphy and the band are note-perfect and, whilst for purists this may take something from the 'live album' concept, you can't ask a band to screw up just to add character to a record.
It's true that because of this 'perfection' there's little added to the original studio versions of each track, but I don't think that this was the point. LCD Soundsystem have already created a legacy, but Murphy's respect for Peel and the ideal behind his 'Sessions' process meant that this was something the band had to do.
Little new here then, and I would've loved to hear 'New York I Love You...' in this form, but an incredibly enjoyable record and a necessary addition to any music collection.

I have recently "discovered" LCD Soundsystem and have not been disappointed by any of their releases. Everyone should listen to this band and miss their passing.

If, as seems increasingly likely, LCD Soundsystem are on their way out, "London Sessions" may very well be the last record - and what an outdated word that is - released during their lifetime. The single, as such, is a redundant concept now. The days of walking, or getting the bus from the village to the local Woolworths, and finding the top 40 7" singles on a huge rack displayed at the front of the shop is so outdated it's ancient - even though that is only fifteen years ago. Woolies? Or as it's now known - Poundland.

But record is the word : a record is a recording. In whatever form it comes, even if a record is no more than a condensed set of MP3's/AAC's/etc/, a collection of songs in a deliberate order is an album. An album may be fractured, broken into pieces, ignored by those with short attention spans and mobile phones sodcasting their awful racket all over trains the country wide, and sold in a million jagged chunks across iTunes as "Singles" - LOOK YOU CAN BUY A SEVEN SECOND SEGMENT OF THE DOORS TUNING THEIR GUITARS LIVE IN NOWHEREBURGH FORTY YEARS AGO FOR NINETY NINE PENCE! - everything is a single. Or nothing is. With songs now no longer relegated to the idea of being a B-side, but instead tossed aside only as "Bundle Album Tracks" which you can only legally own if you have a specific mobile phone. What a waste.

As it is, "London Sessions" - prosaically titled - is a live-in-the-studio set of LCD Soundsystem performing in a studio somewhere in London. The live band - seven strong - whip up a tight sound reminiscent of Bowie's Berlin period fused with Disco ; nowhere is this more obvious than "Drunk Girls". Live, the music that sounds claustrophobic when assembled by a single man in a studio, lives and breathes.

Like all the best bits of LCD Soundsystem's albums but better.
Just love that live feeling.
Probably my favourite album of his.
