Its good to see a band come out with a record like this. It is good that they can pave the way for bands like Beach House, Wavves, Tame Impala, and similar artists to break through. Maybe the world will finally realize that a man with a flock of seagulls haircut screaming at the top of his lungs for 45 minutes, is not the future of rock and roll.

Who the fuck are you trying to make fun of there?

I believe Modern Man will be a big hit for these guys. Perfect radio fodder.

"Half Life II," is synth-heavy and bass-driven
Never played it. The first was pretty good though. Haha you might want to fix that.

I agree with the poor closing track choice.
Last album should have ended with "No Cars Go," this should have ended with Sprawl II.

Still, I love this album. It makes me want to move far, far away.
Call me crazy, but I just can't see No Cars Go as a closing track. My Body is a Cage is perfect where it is, imo.

I really appreciate you bringing this to my attention. Horrid mistake on my part, so thank you for the quick copy-editing.

Bleh stop comparing this to Funeral. It's the same band, but it's really not at all. Apples vs. Oranges..

This. Seriously, bands grow. I know it's a terrible thing.

Awesome record. I agree that the repetition of Suburbs can really get old quick. Thanks for recommending Plants and Animals. Arcade shall remain on my "bands that I should see once in my life" list for now

This album seriously rocked me. Best arcade fire album to date. Great review.

The arrangements alone for these songs are praise worthy... So much talent.

epic album is epic

great review

but i do enjoy how long it is, its not over 70 minutes but definitely over 60, sure its lengthy and they probably could have left out at least one song like oh i don't know modern man, not that its bad but its nothing special
