LCD [come down to the dance floor and dance!] system,
This review is from: LCD Soundsystem (Audio CD)
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!
