iTunes Review

Montreal's multi-piece Arcade Fire were unexpectedly pulled into the mainstream with this album - winning the 2010 GRAMMY® for Best Album and taking home two BRIT Awards. Alternately streamlined on songs like “Modern Man” and then ornate and expansive on “Ready to Start” and the aptly named “Rococo,” the band move forward — ever cryptic, ever spirit-searching.

Take a Ride With Arcade Fire Through The Suburbs

On Funeral, Arcade Fire was faced with several family losses that inspired a very beautiful, close to home album that truly was one of the best albums of recent history. Then came Neon Bible, another great effort that looked to tackle the issues of the world, ranging from corruption in the church, money hungry fathers, and the state of our nation. Although great, it was rather overblown and did not deliver the feeling that Win Butler was singing to you like on Funeral. This changed with The Suburbs. Win, Regine, Will, and all the other members of this ensemble fire on all cylinders from beginning to end. Starting with the title track, Arcade Fire introduces to you their new focus point, something we all can relate to, our homes. Talking about the issues we all faced, as children and as adults, such as peer pressure, friendships, relationships, and the fear of growing up. The people of The Suburbs can be seen as the young, love struck couple of Neighborhood 1 who have grown up, started a family, and became what their parents were, part of the "everyday suburban lifestyle", and as unappealing as that may seem for an album's concept, it is truly the opposite, and is yet another classic delivered from the Canadian ensemble. To recommend specific tracks is difficult, as all songs play a role in this masterpiece. However, if you must, make sure to buy The Suburbs, Ready To Start, Suburban War, and Sprawl II. In the end, all I can say is do yourself a favor, and purchase this album. You cannot put a price on this modern day masterpiece. Just put the car in neutral and go along for the ride with Arcade Fire through The Suburbs.

If you already like Arcade Fire, you will like this album.

After listening to the album a few times through, I still can't remember any song in particular, or even pick out a melody that stuck with me. Unfortunately I just can't hear what everyone else is hearing.


Are you kidding me? How is this not the most popular song? It's amazing!!!!!! Ro-co-co!!!! Ro-co-co!!! They build it up just to burn it back down!!!! (Ya, I'm prepared for your thumbs down. Not helpful? No? Really? But my mom always says... STOP JUDGING ME!!!)


Formed: June, 2003 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

A combination of indie rock muscle and theatrical, unapologetic bombast turned Arcade Fire into indie royalty in the early 2000s. Originally comprised of Régine Chassagne, Richard Parry, Tim Kingsbury, and brothers William and Win Butler, the group formed during the summer of 2003, after Win spotted Chassagne singing jazz standards at a Montreal art exhibit. The grandson of famed swing-era bandleader Alvino Rey, Win was quickly charmed by Chassagne's performance, leading the two to launch a songwriting...
