They did nothing special in that song to warrant it being 7 and a half minutes. It dragged so much it felt like 15 minutes.

That's quiet the change...

Although I loved The Suburbs... I appreciate something fresh if it's well done. And this is pretty
well done.

Sounds a bit like Arcade Fire remixed by LCD Soundsystem or something.

I always liked it when Butler holds back a little in his vocal delivery.

Nice Bowie Cameo.

If this song is a marker the album is going to be too long and tiresome like the Suburbs. Even so it still grooves pretty well.

None of you can get on the level of that beat. Arcade Fire know what they're doing, I think that arguing otherwise at this point is pretty lame.

The Suburbs destroy Funeral in terms of concept as well as variety. Not saying one is better than the other, but everyone on that album's dick needs to get over it. The beauty of this band is that they have such a great understanding of music that they can excel no matter what style they tackle.

Fuckin' h8rs
