An epic album!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Reflektor (Audio CD)
I bought the first couple of Arcade Fire albums but don't really consider myself a big fan. I stumbled across the Reflectors whilst web browsing and was curious to discover who and what they were about. I followed the link which revealed who they really are and I was very pleasantly surprised. Within 48 hours I managed to watch the videos, buy the CD and tickets for their Blackpool performance. :-)
For me this album is my top pick for 2013. The First track Reflektor grabs you and takes you on a retro, dance beat, Bowiesque journey to remember and it sets the tone for the whole album. Reflector is part dance, part indie, part Art rock happening. It's almost a concept album. And whilst it takes a few listens to really get it once you do then it gets under your skin. The music, lyrics and production are tops but don't be fooled into thinking this is a shiny happy disco CD as it's actually quite dark in parts.
Give it a go!
