Smoke Notes

DJ/Producer/Remixer James Murphy - one half of the fabulously eclectic DFA label and mastermind behind the mighty LCD Soundsystem, follows up one of the best albums of 2005 with Sound Of Silver.
The eponymous debut pretty much set the ball rolling on the "dance-punk" movement and this follow up sets a new precedence, leaving all the pretenders in it's wake. Sound Of Silver is an as-close-to perfect hybrid of dance and rock music as you are ever likely to hear.
The ease with which he seems to craft instant classics is quite awe-inspiring. Repetition being the key ingredient to the LCD sound, along with Murphy's sharp lyrical wit – delivered with either his familiar sarcastic, spitting Mark E. Smith styled drawl or a newly found, deep Bowie-esque croon. Murphy knows when enough is enough though and has a canny knack of changing things up just enough to keep you on your feet. First single 'North American Scum' sounds like the Pixies having a threesome with Cameo and Gary Glitter. Elsewhere, there are moments of Kraftwerk and Franz Ferdinand and shades of Talking Heads and Bowie's best Berlin moments (the vocals on opener 'Get Innocuous' for example) all over this record. And speaking of the thin white duke, 'New York I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down' the piano-ballad epic that closes the album, recalls 'Five Years' - the memorable closer from his ....Ziggy Stardust album. Coincidence? All these comparisons aside, one thing is certain - Murphy is one clever bugger and obviously a musician first and foremost, he's able to work all these elements into something truly original.
The reviews for this puppy have been unanimously gushing with Mojo calling it "A fantastic consolidation of everything good about LCD" and Q elaborating "Murphy's presence as a songwriter and frontman is a revelation" - both publications giving it a 4/5 star rating. go even further, saying "There's not a single weak track here, and many more already feel classic", giving it a rare 9.2 out of 10 rating. Who are we to argue with the experts? Highly Recommended.
