Canada, 2013, alternative dance / indie rock
Arcade Fire – Reflektor: I like this album. The music sounds great, but it honestly doesn’t live up to their earlier stuff, and for me, the reason is simple: persecution complex. Win needs to get over himself. No one is persecuting transgender people, and religious fanatics aren’t trying to stop people from listening to music. If there are such people, they’re fringe, and Will is just setting up a strawman. Get over yourself, Will. The best thing about you is your wife singing in French, which is, admittedly, to die for.
