I don't think the new album is outright bad either. But while you're right that their albums were always inconsistent, all their albums still had a handful of big standouts on them. But there's just nothing on that level here. It's a whole album of just ok LCD Soundsystem songs without any great ones mixed in among them.
And yeah, making a massive overblown deal about the breakup (has any other band in music history made a bigger deal of a breakup than them?) and then undoing it immediately is a massive dick move, and basically destroys any credibility and integrity that James Murphy had built up during those "critical darling" years of their first 3 albums. I wouldn't be surprised if he lost a *LOT* of fans over that and for such a scummy move he honestly kinda deserves to.
