If Reflektor was intended to make Arcade Fire appear less bloated, it's a failure. If it was meant to distill the band's music down to a purely physical essence, it's a failure. If it was supposed to present the band in a more down-to-earth, approachable guise, it's a failure. In each case, I'd argue that this record does the exact opposite. This is the most distended, most fumbling, and most distant edition of Arcade Fire yet. Reflektor is the one thing I never thought Arcade Fire would be: fake.

Shouldn't this be in the existing Arcade Fire discussion? As much as I'd like to see wall-to-wall internet buzz about my own music projects (OK, I'd prefer positive reviews, but still), I'm not a huge fan of new album/product media blitzes on the Blue taking up more than one post.
