Find Me On:
I meant released in the “Reflektor” comment. But you guys knew that. It’s damn near 2am and I’m posting about Arcade Fire. I’m druuuuunnnnnnkkkkk!
I have finally listened to this enough times to have an opinion! I agree that the second half is the bees knees but the first half easily holds its own as the superior disc based on the gritty edge it has:
1) As much as we’ve all already heard “Reflektor” it’s being discarded as one of the most delicious/accessible tracks AF has ever real eased. That chorus crushes souls.
2) The beginning riff of “We Exist” makes me want to hump something…
3) “Here Comes The Night Time” could possibly be the best song on this entire record. Fuck it’s dancy. Is that even a word???
This album runs train on every other motherfuckin album that has spun on the motherfuckin radio this year sans Yeezus – Stevie Janowski
I agree that Suburbs kicked serious ass, but Neon Bible was their weakest in my opinion. Give this album more listens and you’ll realize its potential.
For anyone that thinks this album is a regression, you must be in the isuckhard camp. This builds on everything they’ve ever done and if anything, shows they can do no wrong regardless of what they are trying to achieve. Did I mention that “Here Comes the Nighttime” might be the catchiest/most fun song of the year? I can’t stop fucking dancing. Long time reader, first time commenter. I plan on getting into the mix here on out. Hail Arcade Fire, Yeezus, Raptor Jesus and D-Tits til the day we die! Stevie Janowski out, if Kenny P says it’s cool…
No correlation, but ironic nonetheless!
This is one of my personal favorite albums of all time and i’ve listened to it countless hours over the last ten years. It got me to thinking about my top-5 songs and after grueling deliberation, here they are…
4. Stella Was A Diver And She Was Always Down
WTF happened to this band I once loved?!?
Rage Against the Machine please! And even though it will never happen, a new At The Drive-In record would be superb as well.
The reliable source is the fact that they are playing Coachella on Sunday both weekends of the festival.
No shit…like simone
