The hype train continues.
Digging: Lorde - Melodrama
HOT DIGGITY DAMN.
Sowing man giving us all the good news today
Still only heard funeral i need to correct that soon
Digging: Captain, We're Sinking - The King of No Man
Don't blow this Arcade Fire, I've put all my chips on your square.
"because we’ve recorded more than we need" | and please don't make it an hour and a half long.
Digging: Secular Joy - Made For Better Things
same here bubs, absolutely loved the highlights from it tho
Still only heard funeral i need to correct that soon 
In the Backseat is one of my favorite songs tho
Actually, I still haven't heard Reflektor, tbh.
It took me forever to realize Reflektor's cover wasn't an astronaut
That made me chuckle as well lol
It took me forever to realize Reflektor's cover wasn't an astronaut[L]
It's a combination of the small picture and my bad eyes
What the hell man, this might be a great indie year !!
Digging: Damien Rice - O
I am praying that this is good. Reflektor was a bit of a let down but Funeral, Neon Bible, and The Suburbs still stands as one of the best runs in indie.
2017 is already shaping up to be just as amazing as 2016 was.
Digging: Guy Clark - Old No. 1
For me Reflektor is their second best album. I dug that 80s vibe they channeled so hard. Funeral is #1 obv.
And yeah 2017 has some real fuckin hype albums in-queue
Gorillaz and Massive Attack news would make this day even better
"I dug that 80s vibe they channeled so hard."
That sounds tight
"Gorillaz and Massive Attack"
No joke, if those two artists announced records on the same exact day, I'd fucking die
Me too tbh
Digging: Murmuure - Murmuure
Sowing, to my ears Reflektor had a ~45 minute album near the level of the first three in it but it got buried across the two discs. I loved it when it was released (it was one of the first I anticipated the release of an album by an artist I considered one of my favorites) but it has grown off in the years since.
I don't listen to anything consistently anymore because I'm always looking for the next thing. In a way it sucks, but at the same time that doesn't diminish the works in any way. Every time I revisit Reflektor or any other album I scored a 4.5+ it typically feels just a special to me as the first time, so at least there's that I guess.
Neon Bible = Best Arcade Fire
Good to hear
No it really isnt doesnt come close to Funeral
More dancey stuff please
Digging: Yellow Magic Orchestra - Solid State Survivor
still need to hear Reflektor but this is very rad news
From the descriptions you guys are giving of Reflektor, it sounds like I'm really gonna enjoy it
Check the embedded track FullOfSounds should give you an idea
Or if you've already heard it and liked it then it's certainly worth giving the entire album a listen
It's very different from stuff on Funeral but fun regardless
The Reflektor t/t is amazing.
Drop Flashbulb Eyes, Normal Person, You Already Know, Porno, and Supersymmetry and it would've been a truly amazing album.
Normal Person is awesome. The guitar buildup at the end bro. And that chorus.
reflektor was just disappointing hope this is better
Fuuuck it gonna go on an Arcade Fire marathon today
basically ratings for their studio albums go 5>4.5>4>3.5 so i'm hoping this won't be a 3
"Normal Person is awesome. The guitar buildup at the end bro. And that chorus."
Normal Person is the worst AF song imo
For me the albums go 5, 4.5, 4.5, 3.5 (though Suburbs is better than Bible) so this could really fall anywhere. This doesn't really count but Will Butler's 2015 album was lame, doesn't give me high hopes even though Win is the songwriter in AF.
I really liked Will's solo album
There were like 2 good songs on it and the rest were painfully average.
Never listened to them, need to get on that. Are they all good??
Funeral is one of the greatest albums of all time.
It's a shame Bowie won't be on their new album, also this needs to be better than their last, and I believe it will be
Funny, I just decided to spin their discography yesterday. Looking forward to the new album.
Hoping for a return to form. In related news, are they ever gonna put out a legitimate release of their score for Her? Definitely had far more staying power than Reflektor.
This will be mediocre like all their stuff
Digging: Lorde - Melodrama
nah Funeral is genuine
i liked Reflektor enough but kinda hope they're over this whole LCD Soundsystem/90-minute vibe they were working with
Digging: Vince Staples - Big Fish Theory
Funeral's three good songs are really good ya
Reflektor is unmitigated trash I'm sad you don't see it
Listened to neon bible for the first time just now
Sweet, never got around to listening to Reflektor. Funeral and The Suburbs, to a lesser extent, are top tier though.
Neon Bible is top tier too.
Digging: Seventh Wonder - Mercy Falls
Yeah can't go wrong with the first three. There's a fantastic 45-60 minute album somewhere in the 3 discs of Reflektor (deluxe edition), so I have pretty high hopes for this.
Also I'm pretty sure the Her soundtrack they did, which is amazing, was released officially. Maybe it's just not readily available on Spotify and everywhere else like the rest of their albums, but it was released somehow I know.
Digging: CHON - Homey
Pretty sure it still has yet to be released Talons.
I've always had a pretty official copy in my music collection, but can't remember where I got it from.
I think I read somewhere they sent out Oscar-promo discs, which is awesome and well-deserved, but I'm also pretty sure they haven't had any sort of commercial release, which almost makes it more aggravating.
