Any band who tells people coming to their shows to attend in fancy dress needs sent to the gulag. Cunts.

I was going to start a new thread and said fuck it.

I am currently listening to Arcade Fire - Funeral - I haven't listened to this album in about 15 years. I will give you my thoughts after.

I realised I'd not heard their debut in 12 years so gave it a couple of plays yesterday & it sounded glorious. I think the fact I don't have to hear the big singles on the Radio all the time now + enough time has gone by that I've forgotten how fucking annoying they are helped a great deal. Anyway, great record, quite enjoying Neon Bible as I type this. Might give the Suburbs a go.

Don't make me go back and listen to the Suburbs.

I've had several arguments with people over the years about how the first two albums were great and all that came after was dogshit.

I'm scared i'm gonna enjoy it now and I won't be able to show my face in several areas of England again.

It's safer not to bother I think.

I'll get back to you once I've finished my comprehensive re-evaluation of their back catalogue.

Yes. Always been a fan of The Suburbs and Reflektor (the album) was better than I remembered last time I went back to it.
Everything Now wasn't anything to shout about though so drawing the line there.

If you had told me in 2005 right after I had seen them opening for U2, that 17 years later, I'd be sort of defending them on a former oasis message board, I'd have thought I'd lost my mind. I fucking HATED them back then. But the suburbs is great, as is two-thirds of reflektor.

Everything now is fucking drivel, though.

It looks like Dan Beckoner from Wolf Parade/Handsome Furs/Operators/Divine Fits fame has joined the band.

William has left the band. I wonder if we got some non brotherly love going on.

The first about 3 minutes of that new song are tedious. Gets better when it gets going but WHATEVER
