Electronic: Year in Review 2010
In what could end up being LCD Soundsystem's last album, James Murphy went out with a bang. Or make that a "Pow Pow." Giving us another one of his tailor-made history lessons, he revisited Bowie, the Talking Heads and Gary Numan, all with his own modernist touch. And while he's often regarded as a producer with his sights set on the clubs, This Is Happening proved to be an even more contemplative, inward look than 2007's soul-bearing Sound of Silver. If it's the "end of an era," as he tells us, at least he left us with his best.
