Great album! Very much 80's influenced. Good lyrics and melodies.

Absolutely incredible album. Just like all of James' work it wears its influences on its sleeve and the end result is a masterful blend of dance-punk, post-punk and prog rock. Each of these tracks is capable of hitting the listener hard lyrically and the collective rush of us against time is shown from every angle here: the rage, the nostalgia, the resentfulness and the urge to make each day count are all discussed in a personally affected manner which doesn't isolate the listener. One of the few albums I've ever heard that had an actual personal impact on me.

From mjp11
This album has grown on me a lot. It's not quite as strong as some of LCD's other work and it runs a little long. However, LCD Soundsystem has such a great sound and style to their music. The standout tracks for me are Oh Baby, Call the Police, and American Dream.

'I'm counting on this to be album of the year... and by the sounds of Call the Police, it just might be.'

I wrote that comment back in August just before this album came out... and I couldn't have been more wrong

Having said that, How Do You Sleep? is quite possibly one of their best songs

From Brad1770
Despite the critical acclaim I didn’t dig this album too much. For starters it’s too, no , WAY too long at a ridiculous 82 minutes

The first couple of tracks are ok but from here on it gets quite sameness/ ish . Even the track ‘ American Dream ‘ I couldn’t get into

Some have this as album of 2017 but I’ll pass thanks.

This record was always going to divide opinion. Was it going to be worth the comeback after such a grand exit in Madison Square Garden? The answer in short is kind of. Whilst the farewell show that night will go down as one of the great live performances, in the wake of this album I struggle to make a case against it. Very catchy and groovy throughout. Its no Sound Of Silver but I believe it will continue to grow on me.

Favourite Tracks: oh baby, other voices, change yr mind, tonite, call the police, black screen

Least Favourite Tracks: emotional haircut
