    LCD Soundsystem - This is Happening

    I haven't bought a new record for a while, but I might buy this one. I just listened to the first couple of tracks online and it's pretty rockin'. Anyone have it already? How's the replay value?

    ...electronica/dance/club or whatever. I know I don't venture too far off the beaten path musically, but I just can't stay interested in them. This coming from a guy who bought the last Dirty Projectors. Go figure.
    I call my bathroom Jim instead of John so I can tell people that I go to the Jim first thing every morning.

    Prepare to "Dance Yrself Clean": LCD Soundsystem's anticipated third album This Is Happening arrives in stores today, just in time to soundtrack your summer dance parties. On the new LP, disco-punk mastermind James Murphy wears his Berlin Trilogy-era Bowie/Eno influences on his sleeve with a collection of nine supersized songs that make his midlife crisis danceable. "The long songs reveal Murphy's bottom-line agenda: He's still a dance guy at heart, and he knows it's his job to ignite parties and clubs," Jody Rosen writes in his four-star review. "But he approaches dance music more like a folkie singer-songwriter than a DJ, as a vehicle for storytelling and confession." Standouts include the frat-rock first single "Drunk Girls," the lovelorn "I Can Change" and the "Heroes"-inspired centerpiece, "All I Want."

    I bought it, I dig it. I grabbed it on autopilot based on the strength of two tracks from the previous album. "Someone Great" and "All my Friends" were 2 of the best songs to come out of 2007 and they are back to back on The Sound Of Silver.

    This is happening unfortunately probably lacks 2 of the stand out tracks of the year but overall I think it's actually a stronger overall record, just not as compelling without the killer tracks. Kinda weird, maybe you know what I'm trying to say.

    either of you two (Rae, JC) ever hear the last Pure Reason Revolution CD?

    I might check LCD out. I heard parts of it a couple of weeks ago.

    I picked up the latest Gorillaz and its pretty good, though it lacks a killer track like Feel Good Inc.
