Echoing the thought that this is James' most forgettable effort, but it had a massive impact. Losing My Edge in conjuncture with "Echoes" basically brought dance-punk back from the dead and that's no small feat; it takes a record of certain quality to bring a whole genre back and this can certainly stand up to that.

Their later albums are much better, but this is a solid start

The first LCD album is a tremendous explosion, and what shines through the most is how much James Murphy fucking loves music.

A good album just a bit too long with a few misteps imo. I own it and enjoy it from time to time. Great band ! MEZ

The singles are good, good, good, but the rest of it is so-so-so.

Good album... with some great songs.

I wouldn't call it a dance record, it has some dance elements but this is not a dance record. Critics name this a "Dance music' 'cause the rhythm its at the front and the repeated tempo and pulse, but I think is a lazy way to define gender.

I hear post punk, electronica, noise, experimental, synth pop.

Took dance music to a whole new level, somewhere it had never really been before. Murphy's grasp of rhythm is better than anyone else's, other than Unit Moebius and that makes this debut irresistible. 205th best album of the 2000s? Ridiculous. Top 10 at least.

A never ending collection of great dance tunes. Some are really epic.

I don't know if two albums were really necessary for this release, but it's still a good debut for James Murphy's popular project. I love his faux Beatles tune on track five, Daft Punk... is a classic hit, and Tribulations is an outstanding dance smash. It's just too much for me by the end. It's like in the kids book/movie Matilda where that fat kid has to eat that giant cake.
