    Re: The Arcade Fire.

    They're pretty good. I think they're heavily compared with The Flaming Lips, one of those -either or- rivalries like Metallica and Megadeth. Too much indie bothers me though, after a while it begins to sound like they aren't even trying to make music lol. My favorite song by them is Wake Up, their entire Funeral album is great.

    Re: The Arcade Fire.

    Really liked Funeral, liked Neon Bible, didn't really like the singles from their new album. Yeah that's pretty much the standard hipster opinion of them, but I really have to agree with it. I hope the rest of the new album is better than the singles, since they're kind of bland in my opinion.

    Also, saw them live in Montreal a few years back

    Oh, I didn't know these guys were well known at all. They're one of my favorite groups. I loved every track on Funeral and most on Neon bible. I used to hate the lead singer's voice but it really grew on me- awesome band.

    They're headlining Reading and Leeds Festivals here in the UK, which are HUGE festivals, so they're at least pretty big over here.
    Like I said, I wanted tickets to one, but they sold out.

    Like Brad said, they're like The Flaming Lips. They're indie rock, and indie rock is my favorite genre.

    I like them, they're really fun to listen to. I'm thinking about buying the Funeral album to be honest.
