It is odd that SC wasn't able to benefit from the two roots-oriented albums competing.
Oh, I agree. I was just responding to uspopmofo's comment about U2 fans.

The fact that any of those 3 "albums" were even nominated is a joke in and of itself. The Grammys are so out of touch, I'm always surprised to see actual music fans even mention them. Always seems to just be thrown out there as some sort of justification over a release that actual music fans like, which seems entirely unnecessary when the vast majority of the rest of the awards went to complete garbage.

Head over to stereogum. You'll find some great stuff.

KROQ sessions of Month of May and Ready to Start with video and mp3 links.

Also, fthere is a fantastic "Sprawl of Glass" (Arcade Fire/Blondie mashup). Love it.

Most deserving AOTY winner since Phil Collins' classic "No Jacket Required" took home the gold.

I swear, that tumblelog is like the Arcade Fire version of the "Stupid YouTube Comments" thread over on EYKIW.
 
Dear Everyone On Twitter And Facebook: The BAND is Arcade Fire, the ALBUM is The Suburbs. They promoted "the first-ever Grammy performance of Arcade Fire" at least five times before commercial breaks. Not "The Suburbs". "Arcade Fire". Get it right.

Haha the internet is populated by the most intelligent people, I'd say most of them thought the name of the band was The Suburbs. FYI people, everyone can see what you're writing, and chances are that if you have access to Twitter you have even easier access to Google, surf before you tweet. That should be a good hashtag, #surfbeforeyoutweet.

Also, not that I don't see a lot of merit in The Suburbs, but you gotta love how The Black Keys can beat AF for Best Alternative Album and yet were not nominated alongside the winners of ATOY.

Well, I think the majority of people who voted AF for AOTY went with the Black Keys for alternative album as a different choice.

Maybe, but logically if it's good enough to win ATOY in people's minds it should also win the niche categories it's in. Not that I'm complaining as I like Brothers more.

This.

Though what laz said earlier about the other nominees in AOTY splitting votes allowing Arcade Fire the win has some merit. But by that logic, if Brothers was in the running for AOTY, they would've won

My question is: do you think that the voters were only pretending to like Arcade Fire, just like the rest of us do?
