Product Description

On April 2nd 2011, LCD SOUNDSYSTEM played its final show at Madison Square Garden in New York City. LCD Frontman James Murphy, disbanding one of the most celebrated and influential groups of its generation at the peak of its popularity, ensured that the band would go out on top with the biggest concert of its career. The instantly sold out, near four-hour extravaganza featured special appearances by Arcade Fire and Reggie Watts and moved the crowd of thousands to tears of joy and grief. SHUT UP AND PLAY THE HITS both captures this once-in-a-lifetime event with stunning visuals and serves as an intimate portrait of Murphy as he navigates the 48 hours surrounding the show. Woven throughout is an honest and unflinching conversation between Murphy and author Chuck Klosterman as they discuss music, art, aging, and the decision to call it quits while at the top of your game. This special edition set includes the three-and-a-half-hour concert in its entirety, as well as the documentary film and loads of extras.

This 3 disc set is Oscilloscope release #45. Inside is the documentary feature about LCDSSs' final performance at MSG. The movie has whole songs from the concert which emphasize the quieter and meditative tone of the interview segments and over the shoulder next morning footage. There are extra extended interview segments with James Murphy if you didn't get enough during the movie. The main feature really is the double disc set of the concert, which features 2.0 stereo and 5.1 mixes both sounding rich and clear. The near 4 hour show is documented in its entirety including backstage breaks. While it can be exhausting to sit through everything this set offers, you will find a greater understanding of yourself and the band if you listen close and loud. My speakers were buzzing by the finale and I was fine with it.

I have to admit I had heard a few random songs from the band before watching this doc, but I wouldn't even go so far as to call myself a fan. I was told by a friend that this is worth watching. Now that I've seen it probably 5-8 times, I can't help but kick myself for not listening to the band years earlier. I wish I could go back and see this concert live. Short of that, I'm ecstatic that we have this film to rewatch for eternity.

The concert footage is incredible, and the interviews and footage between songs is really fascinating. It's not overdone. A perfect balance between the two. It's really a unique story, of a band choosing to go out on top.

We get to gaze into Murphy's thought process and get front row tickets to one of the best MSG concerts in recent memory. You really should buy this!

I love this and have watched it twice in the week since I bought it. With that said, the DVD comes with the full concert whereas the Amazon Instant video does not, so spend a few more bucks and get the DVD.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I've been interested in electronica music and the Amazon computer suggests a lot of things that it thinks I might like. About five years ago it suggested a CD by LCD Soundsystem titled "Sound of Silver." I took the suggestion seriously because I'd read a review in "Rolling Stone" and I'd already decided that this would probably be a disc I'd enjoy. I bought and I indeed liked it very much and followed up later by also purchasing (and reviewing) "This is Happening" and "London Sessions." This was just a very good band and I loved their music and James Murphy was a terrific singer! Excellent recordings!

Well, LCD Soundsystem quickly and easily worked it's way into my list of a half-dozen favorite musical acts (including deadmau5, Daft Punk and Matthew Dear) that were the highest on my playlist. Then the notice came out that they were shutting the band down. Quitting? How can this be? This is one of the freshest and best bands around and they're quitting right as they reach their peak? Say it isn't so! Well, unfortunately, it was so and they gave a final concert at Madison Square Garden (a very large boxing arena) to a near-capacity crowd last April in New York City. The 3 1/2-hour concert is now available on DVD. Well, if you're a LCD fan this package is a must-have! They call it "Shut Up And Play The Hits" and it makes for an outstanding three-disc DVD package. The first DVD presents selections (highlights) from the concert together with assorted scenes and interviews with James Murphy and other band members. It's quite an interesting and well-done DVD. Be sure to look over all the extras. The second and third DVDs present the entire concert. The total package is just overwhelming and is probably the best concert DVD set I own (out of about 25).

I don't really do concert films, but this is an exception. The energy of this show, and the movie goes back and forth between the interview and the concert footage really hold my attention. When I put this on the big screen, crank the stereo and turn the lights out it feels like a party at my house. Great film!

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Paul Allaer TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 27, 2012
Format: DVD
Music: 4.5 stars; visuals: 4 stars; extras: 4.5 stars; bang-for-the-buck: 5 stars

LCD Soundsystem gave its last live performance at the Madison Square Garden in early April, 2011, in one of those rousing "last-concert" sending-offs, not unlike, say, The Band's "The Last Waltz" all those years ago. You know it'd only be a matter of time before the entire experience would be released in DVD and/or CD format. Turns out that it's in the DVD format only (without a CD co-release).

"Shut Up and Play the Hits: The Loud Ending of LCD Soundsystem" (3 DVDs; 290 min.) brings a whole lotta music, and then some. Let me comment on what I know: I saw the movie when it was screened at selected theatres in the country a few months ago (July, 2012), here in Cincinnati at the Contemporary Arts Center, and what a great evening that turned out to be. We get to relive and spend the last 48 hrs. of James Murphy, brainchild behind and singer/songwriter of LCD, leading up to the actual MSG show itself. You may recall that in early, 2011, LCD released a live album called "London Sessions", which in all-but-name served as a Greatest Hits Live set. Now that we have this new release, "Shut Up and Play the Hits" should carry a tag screaming "the really, truly, all-inclusive greatest and not-so-greatest hits live" as the movie has all of the songs of "London Sessions" and then some! Beware: if you are concerned that the editing would be too "MTV-like" (if MTV would actually play music videos anymore), I had feared the worst, and while there certainly is plenty of angle-changing editing, it is not as bad as I suppose it could've been. As to the sound quality, it is nothing short of pristine. It sounded fantastic at the CAC screening, and yes it was LOUD.
