LCD Soundsystem – Someone Great

How could I have been so wrong? I had intermittently dipped into LCD Soundsystem but was always met with something unembraceable. Must have been a case of choosing the wrong tracks (the chief annoyance being ‘Daft Punk Is Playing At My House’ which really knocked me off the scent) because over the last few weeks I’ve climbed aboard, and then some. ‘All My Friends’ was the portal but this tune has really floored me. James Murphy has had a long journey to LCD Soundsystem’s 2nd LP ‘Sound of Silver’, the most interesting titbit being that he once turned down an opportunity to write on a proposed new sitcom called ‘Seinfield’. That missed opportunity may have spurred him on but comedy’s loss was certainly music’s gain when you hear the heartbeat stopper that is ‘Someone Great’. It may be the greatest lost Human League classic ever but it is utterly refreshing to hear music with this much emotion being created in 2007. KD
