how can you not love this band? james murphy is a musical genius. his influences alone make him worthy of all the glory. self absorbed, thats what the critics called "this is happening". this is just mindless dribble from dickless haters. as i stood dwarfed by the mountains and surrounded by thousands of fans, my front row dreams of seeing lcd in the flesh finally came true. i cried for the entire show. with the sun setting over the beautiful japanese landscape, i swore my lifelong allegiance to lcd soundsystem.
