Have to agree with two other reviews, one of which said the music was good but the vocals terrible, and the other, perhaps paradoxically, which said it gets better the more you listen. I've come to Arcade fire only recently and my experience is that both those guys were right: on the first listen I thought, interesting music, sounds promising and then the vocals kicked in and I thought Yikes, who strangled the cat? But I persevered and it grows on you, it really does. And someone else who said you need to take time to listen properly, I agree there too. It's not wallpaper music and maybe that's why the vocals take some adjusting to - they're too strident to have in the background. But, having listened a few times, each time it sounds better - surely a good sign.
