Their MSG show was sold out, I believe, but they sold out Barclays three times in the last tour. So yeah.

The new album has basically no redeeming qualities, and gets worse upon each listen. Embarrassing.

United Center was about 3/4 full when I saw them - a pretty good haul.

I'm not as down on the new one as everyone else. The middle lags badly, but it is bookended nicely.

I like the new album even though a couple of songs are definitely problematic (Chemistry, I'm looking at you), but they didn't play those on this tour anyway. And the live shows are still fantastic, went to both Toronto shows this weekend, and they are still killing it. Toronto 1 was sold out, but they did have to drape the upper level for Toronto 2. I hope they weather the storm they've been through lately and come out of it stronger than ever.

And, btw, while one has to get there three days before to be 4th in queue for U2, I only spent three hours in queue for Arcade Fire to be 4th in line, lol. Was pretty much the same last AF tour too, proving that U2 fans are insane.

It's absolutely atrocious in my view. I won't listen to it again. Put Your Money on Me is a banger and We Don't Deserve Love is also great, but if they swing through here I doubt I'll be putting up the money to see them.

I might’ve said it before, but this record would be a great EP.

Everything Now

Creature Comfort (lyrics suck but I like the music)

Electric Blue

Put Your Money On Me

We Don’t Deserve Love

Everything Now (continued)

Infinite Content and Good God Damn are the only bad tracks, and only really Infinite Content do I think "skip."

Electric Blue is fantastic. Curious why that track isn't getting any love.

They will record a back-to-basics album that gets rid of all electronic flourishes, and go on a smaller scale tour that focuses on the music and brings them closer to their audience.

They were on SNL last night

One of the better songs on the album but this was kind of an odd performance:
