RiYD: Classic Rock (a la Thin Lizzy), LCD Soundsystem, cowbell
This record is just good. Big sound, bigger emotions. It’s the kind of stuff you want to roll all of your windows down and drive real fast to. I’ve never been old but I think this is the kind of music that encapsulates what it is to be young; nostalgia pop, maybe.
James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem) produced this record, continuing his infatuation with updating everything that was great about music in the ’70s for today. Maybe the title is a little off, then, because, if anything, this album is stuck on the past. But I’ll be darned if that’s a bad thing.
PLAY ALL!! I’ll let you figure out what you want to play. But please do play this record. It’s that good.
