Handful of goodies
...but not digging the 70’s disco vibe I got from the album overall. Disappointed
I love arcade fire, and this album, like all of their other albums, has a GREAT message and it’s great to listen to in its entirety. I love this.
I don't mind the retro or disco vibe. Bands are allowed to explore different styles.
Where is the emotion?
Or the creativity?
Listen to Infinite Content (I did, however, enjoy the campy Infinite_content.) And then Peter Pan. And then Chemistry. Then can you look me in the face and tell me that this is a good Arcade Fire album?
Everything Now (the song) is alright, Electric Blue was pretty good, Put Your Money On Me was mildly dope, and We Don't Deserve Love was decent as well. But all of the other songs were either barely mediocre or absolute rubbish.
Looks like Win & Co. lost on this one.
But not really. It's rather disappointing.
Everything (Deserves A Grammy) Now
The title track is one of the best songs of the past decade. I hope it gets recognized at the awards shows even though it’s shockingly absent on the singles chart.
Reflector was such a geat album and like most Arcade Fire fans the earlier stuff is golden. Something with Everything now is off, it feels forced and mainstream/corny. Lyrics have always been one of the best things about their music but its flat... This album has the lowest rating on itunes compared to the others, guess its proof of what we have here. I feel life pressured this release because it doesnt sound complete, alot of the songs are halfway great then suffer from bad ideas. We can always hope to the future. (electric blue is a good song)

Had never heard this until I saw them on the Ellen show yesterday. Loved them. Now hooked. Great sound.
Not just disco
This album is a mix of styles - disco, punk, hip-hop, fifties, and more. I was disappointed the first listen, but after a few more times, I'm beginning to enjoy it. It's definitely not like their early music, which I love, but most of it is very good.
Many great bands in music history changed their styles - the Beatles, Pink Floyd, heck, even Beethoven, lol.

Although it’s different from their older sound. I like this new sound better. Keep up the good work!
Arcade Fire continues to deliver
Time and time again. Awesome album. Love them.
When I heard they were releasing new music, I was elated. When I finally heard the full album, it made me cry from utter and sheer disappointment.
