Yeah. Personally, I think "Sprawl II" would have been the best choice for the Grammy audience...it doesn't really showcase their usual style, but neither does "Month Of May".

I cannot pick out one song by them that I don't love, but Sprawl II is one of their best songs to date, and I think it's one that had a much better chance of convincing a huge portion of the audience that didn't know them to check out their catalog.

I don't know. Sometimes Regine has been known to...how do I put this delicately...sound like shit in a live setting. It was probably best that Win take lead vocals for the Grammy performances. Don't get me wrong, I love Bellatrix LeChassagne but, yeah.

I actually thought the Month of May performance was pretty cool. The bicyclists were unnecessary, but other than that I thought it went off pretty well. It had my toes tappin', as the kids used to say.

According to Twitter, the band may have seen that Tumblr site and at the Brit Awards Win said: "We're Arcade Fire. Google us."

Month of May had a really shitty mix.

I would have done Sprawl II if Regine's vocals were there that day. Best song on the album. Ready to Start was also a good choice.

Did you possibly mislabel the song titles on your copy? I can think of no other explanation for someone admitting this.

Then he said that they'd steal your basketball.

Really? Admittedly, I've listened to the albums far more than I've watched live performances, but in the ones I have seen, I've always thought she sounded great. I guess I just haven't seen enough yet.

Sprawl II is worse than Rococo, Deep Blue and Wasted Hours? Really?

So, I'm really the only one here who finds The Suburbs their best album to date? Neon Bible is my personal favorite, but I think the former is their most consistent. Funeral is brilliant and an amazing debut, but I find it the weakest overall. *ducks for cover*

I'd say I'm probably:

1. Funeral
2. The Suburbs
3. Neon Bible

But it's close. There are a couple tracks on each album I'm not a fan of.

Agreed, word for word.
