LCD Soundsystem

In an effort to understand why so many people have voted Sound of Silver their favourite album of the year, I’ve been spending a lot of time with LCD Soundsystem albums of late.

Somewhat problematically, given my deadlines, all this Youtube activity has absolutely sod all to do with the article I’m supposed to be writing at the moment. Still, though, James Murphy is becoming more intriguing by the minute.

  1. I had a similar problem when I first got Sound of Silver, because I just kept going back to Tribulations. But then something clicked. Small beeps and melodies were in my head. Now if I’m on the bus, or working, and put Sound of Silver on, time passes. I love it…

  2. Sound of Silver is growing on me slowly. I am delighted to see that someone other than me rates ‘Someone Great’ higher than ‘All My Friends’. I absolutely love it. Nice blog by the by. I will definitely be back.

  3. Thanks Red:-) Neil, I’m still not totally blown away by Sound of Silver as a whole, but I’ve got to the stage where I’m thinking this is now my fault rather than LCD Soundsystem’s — maybe I’ll click with it soon…
