Pitchfork

Even considering his bold-name touchstones for This Is Happening, it would be shortsighted to cry rip-off; Murphy is remaking essential 70s art-rock in his own hyper-modern, self-aware image.

Drowned in Sound

If Sound of Silver was the sound of someone reaching far enough to make something just plain great, then This is Happening is the sound of a man with great taste who really understands music, making dumb body music with hidden depths if anyone cares to investigate.

The last album by LCD is one of the best. The tracks are all just great dancey electronic tunes with great lyrics. Fantastic end to their career.
