After seven unforgiving years the American electronic rock group LCD

Soundsystem return with their fourth studio album and it has been completely

worth the wait.

 

Finishing up in 2011 for good, the 4 person band led by front man James Murphy

said there goodbyes with a huge fare well show at Madison Square Garden whilst

leaving behind one last live album of the show and documentary to go with it.

However reuniting five years later and releasing their newest studio album

American Dream” in 2017, the band has certainly given us something that will

last longer than their breakup period. The Brooklyn bands breakup and reunion

undoubtedly put pressure on the band for this album to be a worthwhile venture

and for us, it totally delivers.

 

The 10-track album “American Dream” shows a huge amount of variety while

still keeping true to their signature sound. The opening track for this album “Oh

Baby” sets expectation for everything to come and before ending already has you

looking forward to your second listen. With the album containing two 9 minute

plus songs we are totally immersed in a carefully crafted LCD Soundsytem

journey. These two lengthy tracks “How do you Sleep” and “Black Screen” mark

the halfway and finish points of the album and are definitely two of the standout

songs on the album. Along with these tracks album opener “Oh baby” and “Call

the Police” seem to jump out from the rest making you admire LCD Soundsytem

that much more for what they do.

 

Could it perhaps even be argued this sound advancing comeback album is

actually their best yet?

 

American Dream” marking the rebirth of LCD Soundsystem leaves us with total

confidence in the group after their perhaps needed breakup and lets us know

they are ready to do what they do best once again.
