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.

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.
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.
LCD Soundsystem went on strongly for years, then suddenly called it quits in 2011. In 2016, they are back and I was interested in catching up on more than just their hits.
Also check out the DVD, Shut Up and Play the Hits. Great one for the LCD Soundsystem fan.
In any case, I enjoy James Murphy and LCD Soundsystem so much that I went back and purchased several more CDs, including "45: 33." Evidently this comes in several versions so I might indicate that I have the version containing the very long "45:33" track, plus three shorter tracks. All make for very good listening.
The first track (actually 6 tracks) seems to play forever. It's long and drawn out with many interesting variations. My interest waxes and wanes as I listen to it. When I first listened to it, I became somewhat anxious wondering what all this was leading to. On later listens, I just relaxed and let it unfold. Very, very enjoyable! It's mostly electronic stuff, but has voices and a lot of acoustical instruments interspersed. Very nice mix. well done!
All of the following three tracks are well done and make for good listening. However, I especially like "North American Scum - Onanistic Dub." First of all, what a neat song! I was in love with it from the first listen on the "Sound of Silver" CD. Then I got a quite different version on the concert DVD. It was equally good, I might add, just different. Quite different. Now here it is again on the "45:33' CD and sounding quite different than the other two. Onanistic dub; that's funny! Well, what the hey?Read more ›
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
