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.


Far removed from the compressed, trebly, and overmastered paradigm that's gripped electronic music in the last decade, Sound of Silver sounds deep, spacious, and full-blooded.

It will entrance you, it will move you, and it will stick with you. This album has everything, from classic disco-styled beats, to piano ballads, to electronic innovation, to pure, unadulteratedly fantastic songwriting. If you come away from this album with one thing, please let it be "All My Friends", one of the best songs of the century and arguably one of the best ever. You will feel nostalgic for friends you never even had, and you will long for meaning that you hope one day comes.
