Product Description

Amazon.ca

So much has been said about disco-punk's King Midas, New York musician/producer James Murphy, that it's kind of hard to believe that we've had to wait until 2005 for the debut album from his dancefloor project, LCD Soundsystem. LCD's classic triumvirate of early singles--"Losing My Edge," "Give It Up," and "Yeah"--joined the dots between punk-rock, disco, and funk in a way that hadn't been seen since the New York downtown scene of the early '80s, but these are bravely relegated to a bonus disc in favor of a suite of new material that reworks the band's influences in new, often explicit ways: take "Movement," for instance--a homage to the Fall that finds Murphy barking "It's a fat guy/ In a T-shirt/ Doing all the singing!" over punchy analog synths, or the quietly majestic "Great Release," a doff of the cap to Brian Eno circa Taking Tiger Mountain. For all his encyclopedic musical knowledge, however, it's one of Murphy's strengths that he seldom seems uptight about the practice of music-making: it's how he can get away with penning a gonzo disco-punk number and naming it something as fantastically flippant as "Daft Punk Is Playing at My House"--and more importantly, it's why LCD Soundsystem succeeds as a splendid dance record as well as a smart intellectual exercise. --Louis Pattison

The frenetic energy exhibited on "daft punk is..." Is well worth the (low) price of this CD... Put this tune on, start to dance - it is automatic....

5.0 out of 5 stars LCD Soundsystem - LCD Soundsystem Sept. 16 2012
Format:Audio CD
In 2002, LCD Soundsystem came onto the scene with the hit single: Losing My Edge, a funky electronic piece that put a smile onto every music geek's face, as James Murphy comically and vividly walks through the life of a passionate music lover himself, losing his edge ofcourse to the ever changing music industry! 2004 comes around and now LCD has an album to call their own! Losing My Edge is present, aswell as the leading singles: Daft Punk is playing at My House (A hooky love letter to techno music), and the cathartic: Tribulations. LCD Soundsystem is electronic music done right, that is, every key element to making an electronic record, mixed with elements (like the addition of vocals and "real" insturments, often diving into a more alternative music sound) that keeps things interesting and engaging, unlike a lot of electronic music that can feel dull and empty (like backround music). LCD more then breaks this barrier, and you can see this when you've listened to a song like: Yeah (Crass Version) and realize that 8 minutes had just blown by. This is a really cool and engaging record that all electronic and alternative fans should check out.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real thing - with no make-up Jan. 25 2007
By Torval Mork TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I thought I had the inside goods on what was what in music until I listened to the song "Losing My Edge" on this uber-hip album by LCD Soundsystem. Listening to it, along with all the other tracks, including the now famous "Daft Punk is Playing at My House", feels like I've switched onto a radio show paying reverence to the music of avant garde 1980's New York. This two-CD set is heavily referential, spanning influences from Talking Heads to German dance, Lou Reed to Nitzer Ebb. I gave up trying to find relevance in his references, and instead gave in to the sweet beats and infectious grooves. Murphy really lays down the law with his use of the TR-808 overlayed with acoustic drums - a trippy element, kind of like welding the electronica to the rock using solid gold as a solder. Each song is a stand out on both discs, with no puff-pieces or over-usage of any kind - it's one of those disks I'd put on my "If I was shipwrecked on a desert island...." lists.
