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.

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

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.

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.

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.

If you are an LCD Soundsystem fan, you probably already have this in your collection. If you are like me and wanted to catch up on their back catalog, this is a must. I loved this mix, with it's unique sound.

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.

I first became aware of LCD Soundsystem through their "Sound of Silver" CD. I liked it so much that I also purchased "This is Happening" when it first came out and followed that up with "London Sessions." What a terrific bunch of CDs! At about that time I became aware that LCD was quitting and would have a grand final concert and that it would be out in the DVD format. Naturally, I had to have it. Well, it's the best concert DVD I own, out of a collection of about 25. Incredible!

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?

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
