Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Initially created as part of a marketing campaign with Nike and iTunes, 45:33 was supposedly designed to be the ideal jogging soundtrack. If you’re familiar with the sardonic antics of James Murphy (a.k.a. LCD Soundsystem) you hear that background and wait for the punchline. Turns out there isn’t one, which--of course--might be the joke. Recreated here as a series of continuous tracks, the composition has the arc of good workout music: It starts slow, works up a lather, then gradually winds down. 45:33 is mostly played straight, a big, bright rave-up peppered with hypnotic melodies and tongue-in-cheek samples. After the opening disco-fied, downtempo piano motif, the beats soon drop, packing in a focused momentum and deep, insistent thumps. It ends with a sparse, ambient hum that, while done perfectly well here, has been done elsewhere before, and better. Overall, listening to the ultra-cool Murphy drop the pretense and cut a rug is too fun to complain about. Three other tracks are included here: a version of the single "North American Scum" and two b-sides ("Hippie Priest Burn-Out," "Freak Out/Starry Eyes"). In combination, the entire package feels a little thrown together but should satisfy those iPod-deprived souls who missed it the first time around. –Matthew Cooke

Product Description

45:33 was originally recorded by James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) as a continuous album-length disco symphony. Commissioned by Nike for their Original Run series, it was the second in the series and proved a massive success, both critically and commercially. It is the result of Murphy's desire to create a piece of music outside the typical commercial constraints. 45:33 is a refreshing audio creation, complete and fulfilling, moving through a dynamic range of tempos and rhythms, all the while maintaining the essence of an LCD Soundsystem recording.

Nearly six months since the iTunes exclusive ended, 45:33 is now available for the first time on CD and double vinyl. The CD, which also includes three bonus tracks previously available in the UK only, remains intact as a singular piece of music that is spliced six times for easy navigation.

No longer just for runners, 45:33 will prove to be a must-have release for athletes, DJs, and music fans alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars LCD Soundsystem 45:33 November 18, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Sounds warm and analogue, not stuffy and not serious. I'm listening to it now on Rhapsody. It is [updated] disco. But it seems affectionate, even fun, like playing with your fuzzy, clever robot kitty. I can see how it would be nice for running [or certain household or creative tasks] as it does engage that certain part of the brain so that the rest of you can focus. Thematically there's a fair amount going on. That said, it won't quite reward active listening. I'm at 14 minutes and so far I'm good; not bored. At 17 minutes it turns funky, at 19 it turns psy. Dag, I'm liking this. It has definitely suspended my disbelief. This definitely has a lot of personality and is cheeky sort of like Basement Jaxx, The Orb, or Yello [at 29 min it reminds me a little of Yello, in a good way]. Mmmm. Chunky. Okay I'll stop now. I know this review was trippy but hopefully it does sort of give you an idea of what to expect until a good reviewer comes along. Bye.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is disco alive in 2007? November 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD
James Murphy seems to think so and as LCD Soundsystem he is proving it. This album takes the dance snippets from Sound of Silver and builds on them to create one long, very disco-ey, very blues-ey, no singing dance track. That's not to say that there are no speaking, just not singing.

Once you start listening you can't stop. It sucks you in. It's like background music but not so background that you can't enjoy it. It allows you to focus on anything you're doing while enjoying some great dance music.

This is definitely a must own for any dance or electronic music fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for a 45 minute drive accross town... January 2, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
This album really feels like a musical journey across a variety of styles and instrumentation. I can't say that I know the story behind the album or what influenced it, but I can tell you I like it.

I kind of just bought it on a whim and a good hunch. the only 2 tracks that i knew before buying this (along with Sound of Silver and their Self titled) were "Losing my edge" and "Yeah (pretentious mix)". With the exception of "hippie priest Bum out" this is one 45+ minute track that blends together 5 to 7 songs you would find on any other average cd. While there are alot of bright spots to be found on this one huge track, I really think they kick it up a notch around minute 17 and from there seamlessly span across different styles of dance music. Some of it very Herbie Hancock influenced, spacey techno, disco heavy Fat bass and then some. the last 10 minutes are like a subtle come down, but not much going on but a transcending synth pad.

so really, you're getting a good solid 35 minute musical journey that is upbeat, fun, and down right enjoyable. if you like LCD Soundsystem, Electronica, or dance pop with a nostalgic feel and modern approach, buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it January 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you are already aware of LCD soundsystem then you either already have this or are just taking the steps to get it. If you are new to LCD Soundsystem then you need to be aware of the following

this is low fi electronic dance music with an emphasis on analog

you should probably listen to Sound of Silver first and if you like that then this is a no brainer!

designed to be an electronic "symphony" 45:33 has several tracks that flow one into the other making it perfect for get togethers or just hanging out and taking in some good tunes

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet Jamz January 14, 2011
Format:Vinyl
I don't know why this has a crazy title in the listing. It's 45:33, and it's awesome. Funky as heck. I've been a fan of LCD for a while, but for some reason (probably because of the Nike association) I put off getting this. That was dumb, it's a sweet record.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reflektor prompted me to buy this... January 3, 2014
By tvk
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I always knew LCD Soundsystem were considered a good group, but I never checked them out until I listened to Arcade Fire's latest album, Reflektor. Knowing that LCD frontman James Murphy produced a lot of that album, I wanted to check out more of his work. I chose this one because of the price, and I like what I hear. I describe it to friends as organic dance music--it doesn't have the overly produced or super tight soundscape of electronic artists. It's funky, loose-sounding dance music. This was a nice introduction to the band; I plan on checking out more.

4.0 out of 5 stars All groove all the time March 20, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
During its relatively brief tenure, LCD Soundsystem managed a unique blend of 70's/80's dance blended with the snark of New Wave and Punk. James Murphy never had any qualms about letting songs go on past the commercially acceptable 3-5 minute range and nowhere was that more obvious than on this "EP." I have to use quotations there because its strange referring to a 60+ minute album as an EP. The album's centerpiece and title track was originally designed to be listened to during a workout and was initially licensed to Nike. Despite being so functional, Murphy actually created something that stands up on its own. You just need to set the right expectations before hitting play. Most of the track (and the added songs) is made up of extended and rather repetitive grooves unlike the bands proper albums. As far as I'm concerned, this still makes for an engaging listen. This is also LCD's most psychedelic release, which lends a somewhat subversive feel to an otherwise corporate-commissioned piece. I don't recommend starting here if you're new to LCD. Try Sound of Silver or This Is Happening first and then venture down this path.
