I recently picked up the new Arcade Fire record, and it reminded me of how much I like their past two records (Neon Bible in particular). The artwork is really fantastic on this one, and The Suburbs and Ready To Start have both been stuck in my head for days. Songs I didn't love on the first listen have all grown on me with subsequent listens. I particularily adore records with re-occurring lyrical themes and this one doesn't dissapoint. D always jokes about how much I love over the top, dramatic things in general. Win's warbley, whispery, slightly panicked voice and all the musical ups and downs in this case. So many feelings he likes to say.
