*****
At the time of this review I'm yet to hear 'The Suburbs' in full, but this easily trumps what I've heard from that record (although funnily enough, the title track of that one has grown on me recently) as well as the first two records. To me the second half of this album sounds a lot like both 'Funeral' and 'Neon Bible' at times, but sadly it doesn't really stand out with the same bombast as the first half, which to me is absolutely brilliant. Possibly only 'Afterlife' matches the dizzying heights of 'Normal Person', 'Here Comes The Night Time', 'We Exist' and of course the one and only Flekky.

When I heard that this album would have two volumes, I also didn't realise the whole thing would surpass 75 minutes in duration. As such, the whole two-albums-in-one deal will feel very lopsided to me I believe, because the first half is just far superior. So be it I suppose, but thankfully I can say it's not just because of the title track, which to me is one of the year's best tracks. All in all a great album! 5.25
****
Great album from Arcade Fire. There are many highlights throughout the album, and on a technical level, this is a well produced album. But at the same time, there are a few tracks that drag out a bit, and fail to impress.

Admittedly, I have not heard their previous albums in full (I have heard a few songs), so I can't properly compare this to their previous efforts. But generally overall, this is a really good effort from Arcade Fire.

I prefer The Suburbs but this is still quite good. Reflektor and You Already Know are my highlights but they're pretty much all good even if most do go on a bit long for my liking.
