6/10 Clinton Staff review, 13 May 2010

Here we have the new LCD Soundsystem album. One of those bands that sounds so great from how people describe it and then once you hear it yourself you feel kind of let down. This album starts out quite quiet with whiny vocals and indistinct electronics before a big fat squelchy synth comes in and the whole thing rises up to a new level. The vocals are very Talking Heads. The second track 'Drunk Girls' shows what Murphy is good at - pastiche. An almost note perfect Roxy Music, Brian Eno (in pop mode) glam stomper before giving way to the industrial funk of 'One Touch' on here the production is great with brilliant propulsive rhythms. It plays very safe with melody though and the chorus isn't really what the song needs to become an instant classic. Track 4 recalls Bowie's 'Heroes', almost ridiculously so. It is very good but like a lot of Murphy's work shamelessly derivative. Overall I get the impression that this is a strong (final?) album from LCD Soundsystem that delves further into straight ahead pop than their other records and borrows hugely from the interesting end of 70's glam pop.
