Compared to the first LCD Soundsystem album, Sound Of Silver is less silly, funnier, less messy, sleeker, less rowdy, more fun, less distanced, more touching. Sound of Silver was produced by the DFA and recorded during 2006 at Long View Farm in North Brookfield, Massachusetts and DFA Studios in New York, New York. All the jagged frays have been removed, replaced by a slightly tidier approach that is more direct and packs more punch. In 2019, The Guardian ranked the album at number 5 on its list of 'The 100 best albums of the 21st century'. Upon release, Sound of Silver received acclaim from music critics, and it was later nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Electronic/Dance Album at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards.

Heaped with a semi-optimistic splurge of retro synth squiggles and world-weary songwriting, this album slowly and infectiously became the soundtrack to a disappointing decade, built on intricate and simple motifs that bear the longevity - and endurance - of the music and the feelings within.The Bulgarian-born doctor was a pioneer of group therapy and had opened a practice in New York City. Honestly, I wanted a replay of the double album debut, which I am still discovering tracks I like on now, and when I first listened to Sound of Silver I was a bit disappointed. Pitchfork named two of the album's tracks ("Someone Great" and "All My Friends") in the top ten tracks of 2007 [38] and the album itself was named the second best album of 2007.

All My Friends" begins with a piano riff that sounds not unlike a speeding train (or, at least, Steve Reich's approximation of one) and rolls downhill into fireworks.

So it's fitting that the finest work of Murphy's career is an album that sits squarely at the intersection of all those careening ideologies.

Nonetheless, his transition out of punk and into dance music ran concurrent with this modest revolution, and it's pretty much impossible to separate his epiphanies from ours. While Sound of Silver makes no bones about Murphy's well-known appreciation of Brian Eno's pop vocal affectations ("Get Innocuous", "Sound of Silver"), the Velvet Underground ("New York I Love You"), or new-wave ("Watch the Tapes"), it never feels like a paste job, but rather just the well-considered work of someone connecting the dots between the past and the present. 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.

has me dancing from the start to holding my lighter up as i sing New York I Love you but your bringing me down. In that respect, Sound of Silver isn't far removed from LCD Soundsystem's eponymous 2005 debut, which ultimately tried to do the same thing but fell slightly short. A dance-rock record from a former punk agnostic, this hybrid of 1970s art-rock and more traditional dance elements. Tim Jonze of NME wrote that while "Murphy's wise enough never to let his showing off spoil the fun, he can't avoid investing these songs with heart and soul . As of January 2016, the album has sold about 225,000 copies in United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.The silver ink stamped labels are also a nice touch, although they smudge off with ease so it's worth being delicate when playing them. On October 27, 2022, the song New York, I Love You but You're Bringing Me Down, was the final song played on WNYL Alt 92. But possibly the greatest thing about LCD Soundsystem -- and The Sound of Silver -- is just how goddammed infectious the whole things adds up to be. 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). On "All My Friends", for instance, he tackles a favorite subject (getting older) from the wrong end of an all-nighter: "You spend the first five years trying to get with the plan/ And the next five years trying to be with your friends again.
