Like The Inside Of An Atari...,
This review is from: LCD Soundsystem (Audio CD)
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!
