This album is amazing, a grower I learned to love. I am one of those who played a hundred times the first album Funeral and that is always disappointed when first listening a new Arcade Fire, like expecting the same perfection. But, giving it time, I learned to like very much Neon Bible and learned to love The Suburbs just as well. This is definitly a stronger album than Neon Bible in my opinion! Now I bought it on vinyl and it is important to say that it has been mixed for vinyl, because many band use the same mix for Cd and vinyl version and that, you can hear! It feels like a analog flawless experience! It feels like you get what you pay for when you strech the bucks to have the vinyl version!
