Shut Up and Play the Hits

I was late getting into LCD Soundsystem. Sure, I’d heard some tracks over the years, but it was really when he announced that he was stopping the band that I took attention, and watched a stream of that final concert, and have been enjoying the albums ever since. This documentary, which is a mix of performances from that concert as well as some behind-the-scenes stuff and interviews regarding the “ending,” is really quite good. It does a great job of highlighting the emotional feeling of putting an end to something that is still loved by many – including the sadness and uncertainty felt by the person who is ending it all.
