As much hype as this album received, I really could not get into it. It was such an electronic turn for such a musically inclined and talented band. At times it has a 1980's new wave feel to it such as "Reflektor" and "It's Never Over". Other times you are wondering what exactly they are going for other than trying to throw in as much noise as possible with "Here Comes the Night". Perhaps for folks that are just discovering Arcade Fire, this is the album for you. If you have ever seen them play in the past, you know how musically diverse they are- switching instruments between each song. This album was so electronic that I feel it took away from their talent and potential.
Arcade Fire has made a tremendous album, which to me still remains to stay in the original roots and values. The Arcade Fire-Sound hasn’t gone away, only gotten a more groovy and danceable vibe. Songs like Joan of Arc, Afterlife and You Already Know is perfect examples of this, as they are so catchy and groovy but still Sound umistakenly of Arcade Fire.

The hype of this album has been enormus and only gotten bigger after the release of the first single, Reflektor. Many have Said afterwards that the hype isn’t worth it. And in relation to that i can absolutely not understand what people mean by that. Yes, the songs are different from the first single but that doesn’t mean the quality if the rest of the songs isn’t good. It’s fantastic.

Other songs like Here Comes The Night Time (Part l and ll), We Exist, Awful Sound and It’s Never Over also shows how much Arcade fire dare to explore and experiment and where they make people even more wanna Dance and let go. Not to forget Supersymetry which works as the perfect ending on this album. With it’s 11 minutes it really drags the long chords and experimenting instruments. And every song may not appeal to me as much as others but they still help to make a good album more consistent as a whole. Here i think of Flashbulb Eyes (which i still really like but not as much as Reflektor, for an example) and Porno.
