Favorite: In Hiding
Runner-up: Do the Evolution
Least Favorite: Red Dot (Track 8 )
Underrated: No Way
Overrated: probably Given to Fly but I love it

Score out of ten: 9/10

Over or under rated?: There are a couple of popular PJ songs on this one (even if they weren't chart toppers) but I think this album is very underrated. It's different at times but I think that every track is great in its own way.

Their best album by far.

Spot on review (although I felt Wishlist was more over-rated, mostly because I find it a bleh song compared to Given to Fly).

Yeah, I like that song but I would agree with that.

Overall: 9/10 - There are people that call this album, and most of LCD Soundsystem in general overrated. I really love this album though, and it was a fitting conclusion to a great career for the band.

I've never really listened to the other albums that much, but I've been meaning to.

It's pretty mediocre. I'm not a fan of any of the singles. Uprising is good live.
The best songs are Unnatural Selection *top 10 Muse songs and I got to see it live opening for U2*, MK Ultra, I Belong to You and Exogenesis 1&2

You saw US live? Holy, you are lucky. That's one of the 5 Muse songs I haven't seen live yet that I really want to see.

Yea. I was so surprised they played it as an opener for U2. My Muse dream is Death Star and Butterflies, Fury and Hurricanes

And I agree that Absolution is pretty perfect. I'd say 9.7. Only one album is 10/10 ;)

My 5 are Citizen Erased, Dead Star, Unnatural Selection, The Small Print and Falling Away With You. Absolution is my fav album of the 000's, but my favourite album ever is JT! :D

Oh yes. Those other 3 are amazing, especially Citizen Erased and TSP. Absolution is definitely top 5 of 2000s. Up there with Brand New Eyes, X&Y, Sams Town, and Favourite Worst Nightmare.

AB is the only 10/10
