That sounded fucking great from the snippet.
I agree completely. Arcade Fire has always been about big cathartic payoffs at just the right time. Having a stadium full of 20 somethings all dressed up with lights strung from the ceiling and DJs made everything feel like prom. They actively tried to disorient their fans for the whole show. Everyone running back and forth between two stages where the band performed. I don’t think there could have been a more beautiful moment than during that tempo change in “Wake Up” with confetti and streamers everywhere. It was a total party.
*learns this dance. dances in mirror forever.*
Am I the only one bothered by the line “I prefer your love to Jesus?” It’s just really cheesy. That’s my only scruple with the overall very solid album.
If this is what protesting looks like, I’m into it!
Album is good. It’s very fitting that 2014 starts off with an album called After The Disco, seeing as 2013 was dominated by that genre.
Bolder, punchier, and more reflective of her live performance. If I wasn’t already stoked for a new St. Vincent album, consider me double stoked.
Obsidian is in my top 5. I hear ya, man.
Besides some obvious skip-able songs, Artpop is pretty good. I don’t see why it’s getting panned, when it is certainly better than the shit show that was Born This Way. Do you REMEMBER how dumb that album art was?
Shit reads like a P!ATD song title. Just sayin’.
