LCD Soundsystem Final Show Recorded

I never got the hype for LCD Soundsystem. I had no idea it was possible for   James Murphy and his backing band to sell out such a large venue. And honestly, I just didn't understand why people liked him such much. After watching the final performance, I finally gave his three albums a shot. Though the vocals definitely aren't my favorite, the electronic arrangements he creates are exceptional. Adding real instrumentation into the mix makes his songs even better, as the glockenspiel in my personal favorite track "Someone Great". I definitely have gained some respect for the band, as I expect all three albums to be consistently in my car playlist. The video of the performance was taken down, but through some searching on the internet, it can be found.
