A big kiss to my kid bro zakkypoo for sending me the leak link for the new Arcade Fire album “The Suburbs”. After two listens all the way through, I am convinced that this album is MUCH better than “Neon Bible”, and thank god, cuz I was hoping that was just a little sophomore slump. So, since it was shared with me, I will now share with you. I am guessing that because this is the leak, they might do some more mastering, and re-mastering, but I think it already sounds pretty damn good.

I think the standout tracks are ‘Ready to Start’, ‘Half Light II (No Celebration)’, and ‘Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains’.

Hear for yourself:
