From Kurtco
LCD is surely one of the most Rock'n'Roll bands of electronic music. James Murphy is one of my favorite singers of the last decades. If the first eponymous opus released in 2004 was not perfectly finalized despite the undeniable qualities, "Sound Of Silver" marks an essential step for LCD Soundsystem, but especially for the advent of electro-rock. Murphy, the most charismatic leader in recent years, pays homage to his idols, Brian Eno and David Bowie, while keeping a modern and never heard sound. Whether the fantastic tribulations of an epic "All My Friends", the haunting melody of a "Someone Great" or the punk fury of an "American Scum", James Murphy offers his finest offering to the music he love so much, giving a major album from the beginning of the 21st century, new modern musical reference, physical link between art and popular.

10/10

Sound of Silver might just be the best dance album of the decade. It's ridiculous just how good All My Friends is

I like this album but its seems to me all the best songs are not the dance tracks, rather the emotionally charged or melody driven ones; IE "Someone Great", "All My Friends", and "New York, I Love You"

E' strano che un disco di musica dance elettronica ( perché, volendo generalizzare, questo è… ) mi possa piacere e convincere, eppure per questo "Sound of silver" le cose stanno proprio così. Il fatto è che questa musica raccoglie le influenze più disparate ed a volte apparentemente antitetiche e le mischia in un cocktail molto gustoso. Disco divertente e leggero nel senso di non greve, non nel senso di superficiale…

Just fantastic. Thoroughly impressed with the new record but this is well and truly on another level. Easily their best and I can't really see much wrong with it at all. Perhaps Us V Them is a little longwinded but aside from that minor complaint, it really is one of the greats of the decade.

Favourite Tracks: All Of Them exc. Us V Them

Least Favourite Tracks: Us V Them on a bad day.

The title track is the only thing I don't like here.

Favorite tracks: Get Innocuous!, North American Scum, Someone Great, All My Friends, New York, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down

A record that takes it's time, but is perfect when you lock into it. LCD is one of those bands that will change your life if you let it, and this record exemplifies that.
