LCD Soundsystem is simply my favorite band--they remind me of a modern Pink Floyd with a heavier emphasis on electronics. 45:33 specifically has Pink Floyd/Beatles/Daft Punk influences all over the place since the album continuously flows on, experiments with harmonies, and has a great dance beat. But LCD Soundsystem is truly a unique, creative, and beautiful band because they aren't focused on the commercial success so many bands focus on, their more interested in being innovative (which they accomplish throughout all of their singles and lp's). 45:33 is the perfect example of this because this whole second album by them is about creating an experience with the listener (outside the frame of normal studio albums) which I don't think many bands focus on anymore (like seriously think about how many bands would boldly make a continuous running/dance mix for their second album that is following a successful conventional debut album-not many would)...LCD has proved that they don't care about success, especially since they stepped away from the growing spotlight because it was getting too big (which honestly I wish they hadn't because if anyone deserves it it is them). I just wish there were more musicians had the same motivation, innovation and humbleness of LCD Soundsystem.

Yeah, I got "Shut Up and Play The Hits" on BluRay when it came out last fall. I should have known they would have eventually release it on home video, but at the time James was adamant that it would only be ever be seen via the live Pitchfork stream. Obviously he changed his mind.

Now I'm doubting that he's actually ended LCD for good. I bet they'll be back within a few years. Whether they should reunite or not is debatable. The discography is just about perfect as-is.
