ALL U WANT
The homecoming concert series by DFA disco dork and reigning dance-floor kingpin James Murphys flagship project LCD Soundsystem marks the proper release of his third album, This Is Happening, after a high-profile and much-lamented mid-April leak. For the most part, its just a slight restatement of the same elements that made 2007s immaculate Sound of Silver so appealing: danceable party-pop built from bold electronic sounds, crowd-sing-along chants, and inner-monologue half-raps with kooky references to things like FACT Magazine and, uh, Michael Musto. Sure, All I Want might staple heart to sleeve in a confessional rock lament thats halfway to emo, but dont worry about Murphy bringing you downsongs with titles such as Drunk Girls and Pow Pow are every bit as deliciously pointless as they sound.
