Description

For the recording of LCD Soundsystem's following album This Is Happening, Murphy brought one of the original pieces of silver fabric to the album's recording studio in Los Angeles and hung it in Rick Rubin's recording den, the Mansion. 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. I have no idea why anyone listens to tat like the scissor sisters when these guys show how to make top dance / rock / whatever music with a genuine soul. 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. On March 12, 2007, to coincide with its official UK release, an underground remix version of the album was released online in aid of charity.

People can get more than a bit up themselves analysing the influences, often at the expense of the music. A few months after the release of Sound of Silver, the band released the digital-only compilation EP A Bunch of Stuff, released on September 18, 2007 ( 2007-09-18). 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. For several weeks before and after the album's release the entire album was available for streaming on the band's MySpace page.

That turnover period was an exciting time; the ideological tension, the feeling that something was at stake, the exuberance of redrawing your bounds. The album was also nominated for the 2007 Shortlist Prize, where it lost out to The Reminder by Feist. Robert Christgau, writing in MSN Music, remarked that the album contained "one song so irresistible it makes you think the other tracks are songs too, which sometimes they are," [29] later assigning it a two-star honorable mention rating.

In December 2007, Sound of Silver was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album, eventually losing to We Are the Night by The Chemical Brothers. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. 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.
