Well, the tour is over. I managed to get front row, very near the centre.

It was a fantastic show, with the hometown crowd feeding off the band's energy and vice versa. The regional cover was Wolf Parade's I'll Believe in Anything.

It still bothers me that they haven't played Awful Sound at all, but other than that I have no complaints.

Porno has to be one of the best songs on Reflektor, without a doubt.

I listen to the Suburbs once every couple of years and am reminded why I consider it the only Arcade Fire album on the same level as Funeral. It's so skillfully constructed and lovingly written. Rococo should have been dragged to the recycle bin instead of the album folder though.

I was able to use the bathroom and buy another beer when Rococo came up in the setlist in Philly last year, so that worked out well.

Five previously unreleased songs? I'll probably (who am I kidding, I definitely will), pick this up.

So is ordering the cassette the only way to get the bonus tracks without rebuying the entire album?

Oh, look, $6 shipping for a cassette. I think I'll just wait.

I wonder if it'll be on Spotify.

So I saw this in theaters tonight. My review: don't see The Reflektor Tapes.

It easily takes all the worst aspects of Arcade Fire and amplifies them until it takes over the entire film. No rhyme or reason or thematic cohesion found in the entire movie, which was only 75 minutes but felt like it lasted forever.

The worst part? Not one complete song performance in the film. Every track was either intentionally mixed poorly to drop out the vocals/guitar/other instruments; OR the film would cut to something else just as the track was about to kick in (such as the first verse of Rebellion (Lies) or the chorus of Normal Person).

It's a shame. I really like Reflektor and this film does nothing to showcase the creative process behind it or the tour.

I saw it last night, too, and I agree almost word for word here.

It helped, though, that I had low expectations to begin with. Still, it was not a very good film by any stretch.
