Top tune, I've been waiting for this album for so long, mainly due to the brilliance of Reflektor.

A band that's not afraid to be uncool, which is pretty cool.

I personally hope they go closer to their first three albums.  I felt like with reflektor they were listening to a lot of Radiohead.
Initial impression from first listen I'm optimistic

I'm not *there* yet, but I rank The Suburbs as one of my all-time Top5.

War and AB are on that short list as well.

Not doing it for me at all, but at least it's not an embarrassment like everything since Neon Bible.

It's a grower for sure, definitely hear the ABBA influence.  They seem to be in a dance trance following Reflektor (which I liked, but didn't love).  I quite love their first 3 albums, especially Neon Bible.  All that said, I am definitely intrigued and will most certainly give the album a listen when it drops.  Incredible live act as well.

Just purchased some GA tickets for the hometown show in Montreal in September. 95$CA + fee. The stage is supposed to be in the middle of the floor with a 360 view. Should be great.

Will be going with my kids. We had a blast last time in GA for I&E.  :)

A second song was released today, "Creature Confort". Love this new direction for AF.  ;D

Really didn't like Everything Now.  Aping Abba just seems SO "Arcade Fire".  I liked just a few moments of Reflektor, but overall I think I might be done with this band.

Can't deny the ABBA vibe in the 1st single, but I love the song.

Have a listen to the 3rd song, big Talking Heads influence in that one.
