limited digipack version. 'this is happening' is lcd soundsystem's first full offering of new studio material since 2007's 'sound of silver', which was named best album of 2007 by the guardian, uncut and the independent among others, and like its predecessor 2005's lcd soundsystem received a grammy nomination for best electronic / dance album. the album was recorded all in white at the manshun in los angeles and the dfa studios in new york and mixed at dfa from april 2009 through february 2010. once again mr murphy and co drop something real special. from the opening nine minute expansive groove of 'dance yrself clean' to the dfa punk of 'drunk girls' via the robotic shine of 'one touch' and the total pop anthem that is 'you wanted a hit' this album does not let go for it's duration. we all know the influences and how lcd make them work but this just does something a little different to what's come before. let's hope it isn't the last album....p.s. loving nancy on 'one touch'.
