LCD Sound System - Sound of Silver

I discovered this record after surfing myspace profiles for a couple hours. I began to hear some of these tracks at the local clubs. It wasn't "the jam," people weren't spinning on the floor. I bet no one had even rendered a first drop drop of sweat while this was playing. Thats funny. Who the hell says your time at a club can be measured by how long it takes you to sweat. I just think thats bizarre.

Anyhow, I really like two songs on this record: Someone Great and All My Friends. To my luck the tracks are sequential ones. All My Friends was the first track that stuck to me because it reminded me of The Who's Baba O'Riley(you can listen to it here). LCDS's Wiki classifies them as "dance punk," I don't entirely agree with that but they are definitely something you can consider dancing to and I wouldn't be surprised if these tracks appeared on the next coming of age film or some hip new TV show. I can see how some can see that as degrading - not intentional. All My Friends has depth in some ways, at least a personal one to me.

It's not entirely clear to me what is on the cover art. If anyone knows, please share below.
