    I've tried so hard to work out why this appeals to so many critics. Maybe you like second-rate minimalist house-pop. I can't work out how someone can listen to 2 CDs of this stuff when I can't bear a whole song

    This is essentially an over-simplified daft punk with one dudes boring voice all over it. For reasons that are still not clear to me, critics and DJs love it. If you're into ultra-basic electronic pop, you might like it, but otherwise stear clear!

    Knowing I was taking a gamble on this when I made the purchase and man did I lose my shirt. Way over-hyped...Doubt it would even appeal to fans of Peaches (though maybe to M.I.A. devotees) Only a bright moment or two on Disc 2. OK, off to trade mine for some store credit!

    Overrrated. This is just a hype. There are much better albums out there. Only a few ok songs, the tracks are too long and not definitely not original. Why do reviewers hype an album like this and give gems like The Music's " Welcome to the north" or the truly outstanding "Worlds Apart" from AndYouWillKnowUsByTheTrailOfDead bad reviews?? I'll never understand...

  1. LCD Soundsystem is mostly too afraid to be balls-out fun, but too unambitious to make for a really rewarding artistic experience. Essentially, it sits awkwardly in a no-man’s land between artistry and actual dancing fun, like guess-what-demographic.
  2. Built on a repetitious platform of bass, drums and guitar, what starts off as a genuinely thrilling journey tends to conclude in a cul-de-sac.
  3. A disparate yet cohesive collection of songs.
