Customer Reviews

If you're a fan of the band, this is a must buy.
Gabriel Andrés Perez
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.
P. Webb
The concert footage is incredible, and the interviews and footage between songs is really fascinating.

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 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!

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.

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 had never heard LCD Soundsystem before I watched this film. This is a riveting documentary of their last performance. Every player contributes. The style is an amalgam of electronica, rap, punk, new wave, etc. James Murphy is an artist. Some similarity to David Byrne but, overall, a unique musician.
