LCD Soundsystem // The Long Goodbye by Alex Bieler

LCD Soundsystem

The Long Goodbye

Parlophone

5 Stars

Three years after LCD Soundsystem played its final show at Madison Square Garden, James Murphy and his musical gang has provided another gift for the group’s fervent following. The Long Goodbye may seem oddly timed given the gap since the end of LCD’s blazing run, but once you shut up and start playing all of live album’s hits, all of the potential cash grab reservations are lost in Murphy’s ability to hit your emotional sweet spot. At over three hours in length, The Long Goodbye provides plenty of moments for the feels, whether it be the march into adulthood (“Home”), the thrills of life (“Dance Yrself Clean”), or the anxieties of life (“All My Friends”). By the time that Murphy reaches concert and potential career closer “New York, I Love You But You’re Bringing Me Down,” the mood is bittersweet yet beautiful, like attending a going-away party for a friend you may never see again, a feeling that perfectly encapsulates the LCD Soundsystem experience.
