Reviews:

''This Is Happening'' is the third and purportedly final album from LCD Soundsystem. The album was released in the UK on May 17, 2010 and in the US on May 18, 2010. The album was recorded over the course of 2009 and early 2010 in the famed Mansion. April saw the release of the first official single "Drunk Girls" with an accompanying music video directed by Spike Jonze.

The album is dedicated to Jerry Fuchs (1974–2009), who had performed drums live with the band on occasion as well as having a big part with other associated DFA acts. - Wikipedia
