I wouldn't call the new Arcade Fire rubbish but it has more than zero bad songs, which is unusual for them.

I'd say half the album is bad songs, and the other half is middling at best.

Man, you weren't kidding. I didn't like Reflektor as a whole either, but at least that had the title track and "Afterlife", the only thing on this one I would say is decent is "We Don't Deserve Love" and maybe the title track.

The only Arcade Fire song I've ever really liked is "No Cars Go", so I'm not exactly the right person to judge, but a cursory listen of the new album sounds like a group of people trying to mimic some late 80s and early 90s David Bowie and being quite bad at it.

Solid album. It's no Vitalogy but they can't all be perfect.

I was never really into no cars go actually, but I did like several of neon bible's songs.

The single was released ten years ago but a version of the song was on their 2003 EP.

This is the most damning thing I've ever heard.

Apparently what I look for out of The Arcade Fire, and what literally everyone else who posts here looks for, are entirely different things.

We got a classical guitar remix of the Hang-On theme today on the smooth jazz station:



Also check out this cool relaxing remix of Battletoads:



I'm still a bit more interested in Sonic Mania, though.
