Even though I am already over this topic – I do have to say one (xs 20) thing(s). Not knowing who Arcade Fire are – doesn’t make them random nobodys. It makes you musically ignorant to think of them that way. There is a crapload of music out beyond the top 40 people.
So congrats Arcade Fire.
Who, by the way dropped their first album in 2004. Their last album – “The Suburbs” sold 165,000 copies within the first week alone. In addition, when it was released, it debuted as #1 in the US (and Canada, and Ireland). They have had songs in commercials, trailers to films etc. You may have even seen this page shared via facebook some time ago http://www.thewildernessdowntown.com/
I am rambling.
Here are some of my favs. One per album.
Arcade Fire – Suburban War (“The Suburbs” – 2010)
Arcade Fire – Windowsill (Neon Bible – 2007)
Arcade Fire – Rebellion (Lies)
(Funeral – 2004)
