IF Music’s 2010: Top 15 Albums #5

So we’ve made it all the way up to the top 5, and we’re going to slow things down to do so. Special albums require special spaces.

#5.
LCD Soundsystem – This is Happening

It’s been a busy year for James Murphy and his LCD crew. After taking plenty of time writing third and possibly last record, This Is Happening, the band went on a colossal sized tour including incredible sets at Coachella followed by storming sets at Reading and Leeds. Top that all off with some hugely standout shows in Manchester and London and you’ve got a great year. This is happening is as usual, upbeat, dance brilliance and lyrically strong. The catchy singles and genuine nature of the whole thing make it just as interesting as Sound of Silver and as instrumentally fun as the self titled debut. This makes This is Happening a complete record and totally worthy of the top 5. Thanks James Murphy for a fantastic third.
