In that respect, Sound of Silver isn't far removed from LCD Soundsystem's eponymous 2005 debut, which ultimately tried to do the same thing but fell slightly short. ANOTHER great thing about LCD Soundsystem is that James Murphy and the gang make the tracks on this album -- and even more so if you catch them live -- their own. not exactly designed for hit singles, LCD Soundsystem gave us a weighty release with a short number of long songs that straddled the gap between man and machine with a peculiarly sincere melancholy which sounds exactly like a sad iPod walking to work at the end of October.

That turnover period was an exciting time; the ideological tension, the feeling that something was at stake, the exuberance of redrawing your bounds. Sound of Silver was produced by the DFA and recorded during 2006 at Long View Farm in North Brookfield, Massachusetts and DFA Studios in New York, New York. A sleek, delicate, and effortlessly melodic sliver of electro, "Someone Great" is my favorite song of the year so far, and constitutes new ground for Murphy both in terms of prettiness and poignancy. Nonetheless, his transition out of punk and into dance music ran concurrent with this modest revolution, and it's pretty much impossible to separate his epiphanies from ours. The quality is absolutely relentless and there really is not one single track that you'll want to bypass, it is just so consistent.But possibly the greatest thing about LCD Soundsystem -- and The Sound of Silver -- is just how goddammed infectious the whole things adds up to be. The Guardian 's Dorian Lynskey singled out the "devastating emotional punch" of "Someone Great" and " All My Friends" for praise and described the album as "dance-rock for grown-ups: extraordinary. This is much maturer than the arch tone lcd soundsystem showed on their debut - genuine emotion shines through on tracks like someone great and all my friends.

Andy Kellman of AllMusic felt that Sound of Silver, compared to LCD Soundsystem, was "less silly, funnier, less messy, sleeker, less rowdy, more fun, less distanced, more touching.So, the expected disco-pogo guitars-meet-synths club anthems of "North American Scum", "Us V Them" and "Watch The Tapes" mingle with emotive home-listening songs like "Someone Great", "All My Friends" and "New York, I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down".
