Frontman Win Butler's vocal lines are smoother than before and are given weight by a looming sense of darkness, while co-vocalist Regine gives balance to Arcade Fire's music with an added feeling of wonder running through her work. As with their earlier material, violins, harpsichords and xylophones, among other instruments, accompany guitars and drums to add depth to a superb indie rock sound.
Three albums in, Arcade Fire are able to keep surprising and delivering clever, complicated and grandiose records with each outing.

this deserves to be their 'Automatic For The People'; an album that combines mass accessibility with much greater ambition. Pretty much perfect - NMEMercuryIndie & Alternativeadd-to-cart2018-03-21
