LCD SOUNDSYSTEM - "Sound of Silver" 92%

I've been sitting on this one for some time now, but I've come to the conclusion that "Sound of Silver" is the first excellent album of the year. Not to take away from solid releases thus far from OF MONTREAL and yes, everyone's darling ARCADE FIRE, but neither of those records strike me with the dead-on brilliance of the new LCD SOUNDSYSTEM. Improving on the finer moments of the debut album, DFA legend James Murphy brings a vital urgency to most of these pulsating nine tracks, concluding the set with the angry, yet harrowing attack on the gentrification of NYC, "New York, I Love You".

This is one to buy...I might even go out and get a hard copy. Does anyone do that anymore?
