I'm weirdly agnostic by the demise of LCD Soundsystem. This Is Happening is one of the most complete albums I've heard in a while. But I tend to trust the artist on this one. If he says it's time, it probably is. And it's not like James Murphy is quitting music, so much as he's quitting this project. I look forward to whatever he has his hands in next.
