Taken end to end, Sound Of Silver is a thrilling, exhilarating ride on a fast machine. Murphy’s hyperactive compositions have rhythm, energy, feeling and bite – and while dance music will claim it, that needn’t restrict its coverage. You’d be mad to miss out on one of this year’s essential albums.

And when you're not dancing, the intoxicating nature and sound of the ... read more

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.
