From micah88800 05/12/2018 04:21
The Suburbs is one of my favorite records ever, so prior to this release I was eatatic. Unfortunately, it was a huge let down. Pulling on your heart strings with nostalgic and theatrical indie rock music is what I loved about them, and that was completely forgone for disco revival? The music isnt bad I suppose, but it isnt great like their first 3 records. The disco-dance contiuned into Everything Now and it just isnt paying off for them. All this being said “Afterlife” might be my favorite AF song. It hits that emotional nerve that theyre known for and goes above and beyond. Its so fantastic. I just dont know why the whole album couldnt be like that

Funeral is like pretty good, but this... just isn't. Some great songs, way too much dance music elements, and the songwriting is nowhere near their first two.

The guitars here are amazing, and the album does nothing but stun. Just a Reflektor indeed.

This album sounds exactly how you'd expect an Arcade Fire record co-produced by James Murphy to sound like!

Adore this record - my favorite of theirs and that is saying something for a band i consider the best band of the last 10 years. On a side note they are also amazing live.

I don't quite understand the hype behind this band, or this album. I've personally never found their work very intriguing. That being said, this album is certainly the best of what i've heard from them thus far, (Funeral, The Suburbs, Reflektor).
This particular release has some pretty high points, (Reflektor, Porno), but like all of their other album's rides a consistently boring middle-ground outside of those. Their instrumentals are always unmemorable, and a lot of the time their lyrics come across as seriously pretentious. The redeeming quality to this album is its eerie undercurrents that really give it a strong, cohesive, tone that carries throughout.

Having just reviewed 'Everything Now' i figured i better show Reflektor the same adoration; although it did take me longer to love this than their earlier efforts. Funeral is their best, no doubts. The rest is merely exceptional.
They are a current act in the all-time top ten on this site, and should be cherished. I was too young to get excited by each new Led Zeppelin release and I did not get to see then live. With Arcade Fire I get to have these things and long (long) may that continue..

Sounds like a cool 80's dark vibe but it's so modern and different.

Overlong, boring, and pompous. There are some good moments, but they are negated by miles of mediocre new wave disco revival in between. It's a shame that a band with such a unique and successful sound decided to start making dance music.
