Still their best, although Reflector has moments to match. In my mind this could be the greatest album i have heard. Well it is this or Ziggy Stardust. So top two for sure methinks.

This was a great album with great vocal performances and melodies. I highly recommend this album. It was not what I was expecting at all (hard rock), but it was still great.
Favorite tracks: Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels), Neighborhood #2 (Laika), Une Annee Sans Lumiere, Neighborhood #3 (Power Out), Crown of Love, Haiti, Rebellion (Lies)
Least favorite track: Neighborhood #4 (7 Kettles)

David Bowie championed them very early on. I can't think of a better band that began after 2000. Also a thrilling live band. And this may still be their best album.

Indie Rock's Canadian golden child, whose fan base are far cooler than you will ever be, making quite a scene by winning a Grammy and accumulating an absolutely enormous amount of hype. It's good. I dare say great. For me it's not the 2nd best of the 2000's, as much as I do enjoy it. It's a consistent quality, and a few tracks threaten to elevate into stratospheric territory without fully getting there.

After a dozen or so listens, there's a wide range of enjoyable moments on here. Even if I'm not ever fully captivated by a movement or portion of a song, it's very clear the quality here is very consistent.

I don't see why this album is rated so highly on this website. Or why Arcade Fire in general is rated so highly here. Is there an Arcade Fire forum / fan club sending fans over to here? Weird.

I grew up with the songs off this album on rage of a Saturday morning, just like a few others. I love everything about this album, it's so close to being a 10!

Outstanding album. Personally I find that the album does not really pick up until Crown of Love.
