That early LCD tracks like "Losing My Edge" used to feature in playlists alongside, say, "Work It" or ". The quality is absolutely relentless and there really is not one single track that you'll want to bypass, it is just so consistent. All the jagged frays have been removed, replaced by a slightly tidier approach that is more direct and packs more punch. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.And for the first time in a long while, pop also had its evangelicals; people who could argue convincingly in its favor, and who knew how to contextualize it interestingly. In 2012, Rolling Stone ranked the album at number 395 on its list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
