Arcade Fire “Reflektor”

Is this the same band that released the bleak dullfest that was “Neon Bible” six years ago? It’s difficult to gauge the effect of James Murphy on production duties (all bar two of the tracks), but these Canadians have gone New Wave. And what a thrilling over-long beat-driven double album this is. We can forgive the slightly unedited sprawling nature of “Reflektor”. It is probably the most intriguing listen all year and and very much an old-fashioned ALBUM.
