hmm...not sure what the deal is. Well, here's another one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=KxBPZew7CYs

Probably should have worded this as "Arcade Fire teases new song" as there isn't much to it.

"I don't care that none of you care what I think

if you like it cool

that's not gonna stop me from voicing my opinion"

is that the wording for your next tattoo?

or did you decide you were gonna go with "~~~defend pop-punk~~~"

Doesn't even matter both the new songs suck and I like some of their older stuff. Reflektor was like 5 minutes too long and didn't change the entire time, this did that just within a shorter time frame thankfully

That song was so boring and way too long, the melodies weren't even very original or catchy. Listened to it again, yeah it doesn't really change much at all

Even though I really like AF and Reflektor (the track), I can see the album crashing and burning hard. Not that I presume it will, it's just easy to imagine it happening.

Sputnik is so depressing, Jesus. You guys like nothing. You hate on my nigga Eminem, and you even hate on Arcade Fire. Radiohead and Arcade Fire are the best modern rock groups, and this album will slay ASS and become album of the year. Thanks cya

I remember when I heard Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains) and thought "man this band is so good" and then I realized that that was just a really uncharacteristically good song.

Yeah this band has one song I've ever really liked but good for them with their grand vision of hipster cult folk rock.
