Midweek Madness: The Arcade Fire

the suburbs

I have always thought of myself as an Arcade Fire fan, even though I never knew more than one song. That one song of course was ‘Intervention’ so no surprises there. I have recently decided to see what the band are all about. So I downloaded their 2010 album ‘The Suburbs’ and I was sorry that it took me two years to do so. There are very few albums out there that I would rate as highly. Below are two tracks from the album as well as the one that introduced me to the band all those years ago.

  • The Suburbs
  • Suburban War
  • Intervention

  1. Great band. Their first album called ‘Funeral’ is well worth a listen.

  3. I love Arcade Fire. I still think “Neon Bible” is better than “The Suburbs,” though. If I remember correctly, “Intervention” was the first song of theirs that I heard, as well, and it had quite an impact on me.

  4. One of the best, if not the best bands live. Superb presence on stage and their music live is just as hearty and full live as it is when you hear it on your stereo.

  5. Keelan, may I make a suggestion? Check out a band called Thrice. Particularly the song called ‘Red Sky’. You’ll love them. I’m so proud of them, I put my name on them!

  8. A Grammy, a Juno and a Brit award for group and album of the year, all within weeks of each other, pretty much says it all eh!

  9. “We Used to Wait” is one of my favorite songs of the last ten years. It touches something really deep inside of me, that remembrance of living before the internet and cell phones, how important it was during college to write long letters to friends. And waiting for the return message to appear.
