Love this song.

Also, this shows that Win has always had terrible hair.

So, at the risk of sounding like a hypocrite, is this where I can bitch about the setlist?

I have two issues: Wake Up should always close a show. It's just the perfect send off, in my opinion.

Also, I hate that they broke up Power Out and Rebellion. Those two go together so well, it's just such a magical moment and my favourite part of the show.

That said, I did enjoy their Coachella set. A lot.

Ha! I had those same thoughts. I didn't like Sprawl II as the closer.

That thing they did with the balloons looked really cool (did they just have little sensors or something in them, so someone in a booth was controlling the lights?), but I have to say, I would have been kind of pissed if I couldn't see because everyone around me was holding up these giant balloons.

Haven't seen them live (), but it seems like Sprawl II would work pretty well as the final song of the main set, with Wake Up at the end of the encore.

When the song started, it felt like it would be a good closer, but the ending is a bit drawn out and way too anti-climactic.

They don't know how to end Sprawl II.

My only complaint about this awesome band is that they are poor at ending their tracks. And, I feel silly saying that since I'm just some fucking guy without any musical ability or knowledge, but to me......it's a small flaw of theirs.

I'll go away now....but I'll be fucking back someday.

I've listened to many, many hours of Arcade Fire music, and I still have no idea what you guys are talking about re: them being poor at finishing songs, and I've never heard it referenced outside of this forum. Must be whatever they lace the blue crack with.

I don't think it's a huge trend with Arcade Fire. I just think Sprawl II has a bad ending.

The thing is, though, that it is actually a trend with them. That's why I said it. What you think, Dan, does not, at all, in any way, shape or form, matter.

I don't think it's that they end their live songs badly so much as they are not very good at coming up with smooth transitions in their live show.

Arcade Fire to release two new songs for deluxe edition of The Suburbs Consequence of Sound

I hope the new songs suck so I don't feel the need to buy the album again.
