Arcade Fire — The Suburbs (Deluxe) (August 2, 2011)

    Arcade Fire — The Suburbs (Deluxe) (August 2, 2011,2018)
•→√•→        This is an amazing album that really blends art with music. This is a brilliant album all the way through. I think it is a nice transition from Neon Bible and Reflektor. This album has quite a bit going on in the way of it’s use of instruments. Heavily orchestrated at moments and then stripped, simple art~pop at the next turn. This band makes it impossible to have a favorite song or favorite album, everything is really good and they don’t seem to be sitting very still in any specific space for very long. Hopefully this group can help fill the art~pop genre that will be very bare since Bowie has left us. I find there are many Bowie“ish” things about the album. (Thingfish33)

AllMusic Review by James Christopher Monger; Score: ★★★★★
•★•    Montreal’s Arcade Fire successfully avoided the sophomore slump with 2007’s apocalyptic Neon Bible. Heavier and more uncertain than their nearly perfect, darkly optimistic 2004 debut, the album aimed for the nosebleed section and left a red mess. Having already fled the cold comforts of suburbia on Funeral and suffered beneath the weight of the world on Neon Bible, it seems fitting that a band once so consumed with spiritual and social middle~class fury should find peace “under the overpass in the parking lot.” If nostalgia is just pain recalled, repaired, and resold, then The Suburbs is its sales manual. Inspired by brothers Win and William Butler’s suburban Houston, Texas upbringing, the 16~track record plays out like a long lost summer weekend, with the jaunty but melancholy Kinks/Bowie~esque title cut serving as its bookends. Meticulously paced and conservatively grand, fans looking for the instant gratification of past anthems like “Wake Up” and “Intervention” will find themselves reluctantly defending The Suburbs upon first listen, but anyone who remembers excitedly jumping into a friend’s car on a sleepy Friday night armed with heartache, hope, and no agenda knows that patience is key. Multiple spins reveal a work that’s as triumphant and soul~slamming as it is sentimental and mature. At its most spirited, like on “Empty Room,” “Rococo,” “City with No Children,” “Half Light II (No Celebration),” “We Used to Wait," and the glorious Régine Chassagne~led “Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains),” the latter of which threatens to break into Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” at any moment, Arcade Fire make the suburbs feel positively electric. Quieter moments reveal a changing of the guard, as Win trades in the Springsteen~isms of Neon Bible for Neil Young on “Wasted Hours,” and the ornate rage of Funeral for the simplicity of a line like “Let’s go for a drive and see the town tonight/There’s nothing to do, but I don’t mind when I’m with you,” from album highlight “Suburban War.” The Suburbs feels like Richard Linklater’s Dazed & Confused for the Y generation. It’s serious without being preachy, cynical without dissolving into apathy, and whimsical enough to keep both sentiments in line, and of all of their records, it may be the one that ages the best.
