in the context of an SP board the expression "drop in quality" loses much of its meaning doesn't it

that occurred to me, but there are no two SP releases that even come close to how incongruous the quality of Reflektor and Everything Now are. It's like if you went from Adore to Teargarden

me too.. i think it's due to volume tho and ATUM having a bit more variety.. even if most of that variety isn't too varied and mostly crappy

VERY true. Major drop off there. The newest one at least would then be a big step back up, but it of course is polluted by the subject matter of this thread, sadly.

Reflektor needed to be a single and trimmed back by a few. cuts. "Afterlife" on there is top 3 songs by the band for me. That thing is amazing.

I don't think I would have liked a shorter Reflektor. I think length is perfect imho. Afterlife yes def. top 3 Arcade Fire song.

I think there is a bigger drop off in quality between Zeitgeist and Teargarden than between Reflektor and Everything Now.. it's just not as noticeable because Teargarden was so drawn out and slowly released.

Any updates on this? I mean, besides that lunatic who said her songs weren't 'safe' when touring with AF?

A 'win-win' situation so far, innit

Everything Now they wrote 4 bangers, and phoned the rest in. But…

Everything Now
Creature Comfort
Electric Blue
We Don’t Deserve Love

are decent enough.

What do you mean you're non-white, mayn. I thought you were Arcade Fire-white, Kyle Bobby Dunn-white even

Not sure what happened that when I put on Arcade Fire's last album I didn't make it through what I think was the first song. Think I wasn't in the mood or I got busy or something. But yeah, Reflektor and the Her soundtrack were great.
