    McNany's own sensitivity on Museum of Love can, at times, feel like fastidiousness; each track is so carefully structured that the album as a whole suffers from a slight lack of flow, as if the listener is simply moving from one exhibit to the next. However, that is a small complaint on what is overall a satisfying and deeply rewarding project.

    All in all, there's enough to see and hear to make this one museum worth queuing up for.

    Museum of Love is a nonformulaic, hard to pin down, quirky and danceable album.

    Rather than shade towards LCD’s sound, Museum of Love pull from the playbook of DFA’s other big band, Holy Ghost!, favoring the timbres, patch settings, and smooth productions of elegant 1980s new wave and nu-romantic acts.

    Even if Museum of Love sometimes comes across as a sampler of DFA sounds past and present, it's an album that those who enjoy the label's output will almost certainly like, and a promising debut in its own right.

    Museum Of Love lacks a big, standout track that’s likely to attract the attention of anyone not already smitten by the band’s affiliated acts. But it’s still a very good record that succeeds at being alternately funky and affecting.

    Fans of the label and the genre will find many familiar elements to love, but anyone expecting the LCD tree to sprout an overwhelmingly exciting new limb will likely be disappointed.

    Bel album, rempli de hits potentiels, mais malheureusement sans lien trop évident entre elles. Malgré tout, ces chansons restent de génialesBel album, rempli de hits potentiels, mais malheureusement sans lien trop évident entre elles. Malgré tout, ces chansons restent de géniales explorations au niveau des percussions, avec un fort esprit musical resté près des productions de LCD Soundsystem, en plus électronique dans leur approche. Les fans du défunt projet auquel participait Pat Mahoney se consoleront facilement avec cet album et les amateurs d'indie-dance à la Holy Ghost! y trouveront aussi leur compte. Expand
