So I have to be honest in that I have been a bit lazy with trying to find new music. I've been listening to the new LCD Soundsystem as of late to see how I feel about it. Well, "Drunk Girls" and "Pow Pow" did little to really make me want this new one, but I did take a pretty good, long listen, and have to be honest in that those two tracks were probably the weakest off of This Is Happening. That should say something, to be quite honest.
Here is what I consider to be the strongest track off of the album. Well, there are a couple other stellar ones. "One Touch" and "Home" are well up there, too. The former really smacks of their last album Sound of Silver in a lot of ways. Pretty DJ friendly track, to boot. This one sounds more like a sad country song if you listen to the lyrics. "All I Want" is, to me, the best of the lot on this new album. Think of a serious dosage of Joy Division invading the skull of James Murphy and you've got a pretty good idea of the sound, here.
Take a listen and decide for yourself. I've also included a live video that someone was good enough to take.
