Congrats go out the Arcade Fire on their win for The Suburbs. The irony is that of their three albums, I find this to be my least favorite. While Funeral is probably their best album, I find Neon Bible to be my favorite.
While my twitter feed was overflowing with praise for the band, there were others who feel like I normally do when the Album of the Year is awarded: “Who the h is that???” To those confused people I give you whoisarcadefire?
For the rest of you, you’ll be delighted to know I procured my ticket to see the Arcade Fire in Chicago in April. Sure I spent a fortune on the ticket, but apparently a Grammy nomination ensures you astronomical ticket prices and several sold out shows.
I’ve seen them before. They put on a great show. But this might be the last time I’m willing to shell out that cash for a band that is no longer mine but is everyone’s.
