Arcade Fire, “The Suburbs”

Unlike many of our friends, we were not already well-acquainted with most of the songs on Arcade Fire’s The Suburbs, officially out today. We’ll have a review once we get in some quality listens. For what it’s worth, Pitchfork weighs in with an 8.6. But Erik Brueggemann spent sixteen hours round trip with it en route to northern Michigan this weekend and called from somewhere south of Detroit to report it was a little tame for his tastes. Thankfully he found good NPR stations to occupy him the rest of the way.
