The Arcade Fire is arguably the best band of our generation. I can’t think of another band that gets me as excited as they do. I know deep down they’re politically charged, but they say things so eloquently with their music that often times I overlook the message. I don’t really care what they’re saying as long as they keep me rocking.
The Suburbs is more of the same escapism you’re used to from The Arcade Fire and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. In fact it’s a good thing – it’s a perfect kick in the seat. Let’s get up and go do something. I don’t know what, but I don’t want to be stuck here. Ya dig?
I don’t need to tell you what songs to download or how to listen to them. Just buy the whole damn thing and listen from start to finish. You won’t be disappointed.
