I didn't really like the first two singles, but I preordered the double LP anyway because I'm a fanboy. Not gonna listen to anything else from it till it arrives.

 

Tonite was just released the other day. Good dance track with a nice acid line

Really pleased someone started this thread, LCD are a favourite of mine.

 

Loved Call The Police, wasn't sure on American Dream (and only played it a few times so could be a grower) and I heard muddled bits and pieces of Tonite on the radio at work this morning (over a load of other noise) and it sounded killer!

 

Another hit and miss artist/band for me but the hits are so gooood I forgive them for the duds.

Yeah, I heard Tonite was supposed to be the best one yet. To be honest I never get thrilled by any of their singles (Drunk Girls, North American Scum) but I end up appreciating them most in context of the album, so I'm withholding myself until the whole thing's out. Doing the same thing with the new Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith. I guess it's weird but I like having a whole album of new material to look forward to without hearing half of it first.

I definitely feel you on that. North American Scum and Drunk Girls are the worst songs on that album. I'm hoping for another Dance Yrself Clean, that track is massive

I looked at the tracklisting and the last track is 12 minutes long or something. Probably the one I'm most interested to hear.

ok so i know it's like "their thing" to rip off t heads but the second track is *way* too obvious (without the good lyrics obviously) to be acceptable in any way, under any circumstance.

 

 

anyway i love it

I had the same thought. It's great overall though. Better than I expected. Call The Police grew on me a bit but it's still the worst on the album.

I only expect to like 4 maybe 5 tracks off this album when I get round to play it this weekend. But they'll be tip-top I'm sure and a good thing about LCD for me, is generally their best tracks don't require a lot of time or replays to discover. A few zip-lines from beginning to end and I'll know the score.

 

Agreed they sound a lot like a couple of other artists (which usually gets my goat!) but for Mr Murphy and Company I let it slide  :cool:

Holy Cosmos

 

American Dream is the only iffy track on this album. The rest? Fucking fabulously fantastic!

 

I think I might do a little jig

Tracks like "pulse (v.1)" is what I love LCD for!

 

This tune is the bonus track on the Japanese CD

hilariously in the context of the album proper Call the Police is probably my 3rd favorite track

 

not a miss among them though, I love every single one now.
