Man, this LCD Soundsystem record is in heavy rotation at the crib. Easily my favorite this year, and gradually moving up the ranks of my favorite over the last few years. That said, I have no idea why "Drunk Girls" was the first single. There's obviously no accounting for taste, but to me, it's the least interesting song on the album.
Anyway, "Home," like most of the record, is murderous.
