Give it time, even if you liked it on first listen, like I did.
Wendy Harrington
While it is very different in a lot of ways from their earlier efforts, to me it still feels like a natural sound for them.

I do not buy much music but when I heard about the new album I knew I had to own it.

Arcade Fire is one of my favorite bands; in fact, they are the only band making music today that I care about (other than Springsteen), and I thank my friend who introduced me to them.

So I was really excited when I first heard they were releasing a new album.

I didn't really like Reflektor on the first two listens, but something about it haunted my dreams, and by the third and fourth listens, I loved it.

I cannot even describe how it has made me feel this past week.

For me at least, one of the reasons for (listening to) music is to make you feel happy for being alive or make you realize you are not alone, even if life kinda still sucks.

This is what this record has done for me. I am almost embarrassed to be gushing so, but it's been a long time since a piece of art has affected me as much.

It's really hard to discern my favorite songs, but Afterlife is the one that's on my mind today.

Reflektor is one of those albums that you really just have to sit down and listen to all the way through with a glass of wine or a glass of whiskey, by yourself or with your loved one as they sleep in the other room, gratitude washing over you, and hoping that maybe she wakes up to dance, or if she doesn't, that she is having beautiful dreams.

Arcade Fire were well overdue for a critical backlash. Even before their surprise upset Grammy nod, the band was clearly no longer an indie darling upon the release of The Suburbs, but an arena-rock band ascending to take the throne of the Next U2/Springsteen/etc. Critics love underdogs, but they're wary of a winner. To make matters worse, the band did some things that made them look like, well, dicks. Crashing CMJ, turning away fans who weren't in costume from surprise shows, and masquerading as an "indie band" called (in a masterstroke of subterfuge) The Reflektors - these publicity stunts may have attracted more negative than positive attention. So it's no surprise that Reflektor has been getting some negative notices in the press.

It's just a shame that the critics are taking it out on one of the best albums of the year.

Most of the early criticism around Reflektor has been that it's indulgent - all the tracks are too long, overly pretentious, and don't have the content to sustain their running time. First, let me dismiss the pretention claim - do you like Arcade Fire? Because if you do, you like pretentious things. It's been in the band's DNA from the very start - they began their debut with a four-song suite! - and has only increased as time has gone on. If anything, this is less pretentious than The Suburbs - there are no hamfisted T.S. Eliot references here. Next, the tracks are too long. Somehow this wasn't a complaint for LCD Soundsystem's last album, where almost every track was 8-9 minutes, but is a problem when Arcade Fire average around 6. The release of the title track should have been a wake-up call - Reflektor is generally more dance-oriented, and the tracks run longer as a result.

Like approximately 3 billion other people, I really liked their previous albums, and i was honestly a bit disappointed with this one on the first listen, and even on the second and third. But at some point -- somewhere around the 4th time through It's Never Over/Hey Orpheus,I thought this is actually a pretty great album. The songs tend to run a litter longer than I might like, but there is really a lot going on in this album. It might actually be their best album, but I think I need a few more listens to really start to get a good sense of it.

If you are like many Arcade Fire fans, then you already know how amazing this album is. The album was posted on YouTube for streaming 5 days before its official release--a brilliant move, as it became a certain buy for me after a few playthoughs. However, if you are listening for the first time, note that Arcade Fire has definitely evolved since their previous effort. Though the album may not hit home on your first listen, subsequent session revealed something new, a hidden gem, a new favorite track. This is a testament to how much depth this album possesses. There are no fillers: even "Here Comes the Night Time II" serves a purpose as a transitional song into disc 2. The ambition of this album is simply astounding, covering a wide array of themes. It will mean something different to each individual listener, but I will say that this strives to heights not seen since Funeral.

Personal highlights of the album for me include:
Reflektor - Producer James Murphy's impact is most evident here, as the sound is a hybrid of LCD Soundsystem and Arcade Fire. The single foreshadows the evolution of the band while remaining uniquely Arcade Fire.

Here Comes the Night Time - A song inspired by inspired by their trip to Haiti, evident in both sound and lyrics. Full of tempo changes, the song can't help but make you feel the urge get up and dance.

Normal Person - One of the most divisive songs on the album, manifested with Win's question "Do you even like Rock and Roll music?" Either you will love or hate this unabashed rock song.

Joan of Arc - Caught my attention immediately with its hook, and remained fresh after many listens. A fitting tribute to the heroine.

It's Never Over - Simply a beautiful song.

I don't think they're quite wild enough for that label. Talking Heads were an entity all their own and no one can easily just be another them. Same goes for The Beatles, Frank Zappa, Pink Floyd, any classic band/artist. I do agree that Arcade Fire's sound on this record has a little bit of... Read More
