Look, I’m sure they’re very nice people, but on their fourth album, “Reflektor,” Arcade Fire still sound like gigantic dorks with boring sex lives.
After winning a Grammy for album of the year in 2011, they’re still the biggest rock band on the block, still making music mysteriously devoid of wit, subtlety and danger. And now, they’re really into bongo drums, too. We should all be repulsed. Only partially because of the bongos.
Here that Win Butler?! This dude says you aren't having sex enough! Because music critics live like Caligula at his horniest. What a weird fucking thing to say. I love it.
Reflektor is currently available on Spotify, iTunes, and elsewhere. I think that it's a pretty good, more kinetic step away from their old stuff (thanks in part to producer James Murphy and his electronic bonafides). But what do I know! The drummer probably didn't even get laid last night.
