See, that's the problem. Tons of threads. If people would have seen one of the previous threads (I completely understand and can sympathize with those who are new to this section of the forum and just flat out dont notice it), maybe some additional discussion/insights could have been added to what had already been said. How it is now, there's little any of us who have posted in virtually all of those threads have to add other than,"Yes, great album. Whatever." (not that that there's anything inherantly wrong with that) The issue for me is that the same discussion just keeps occurring over and over again, with no new insight.

Then again, it's unlikely that I will ever add any "insight" to anything. (Oh snap, I just got served!!!!)

That all being said, yes the album is great. Check out the self-titled EP too if you can find it. It's supposedly going to be rereleased, and there are also rumors of a possibly 'live' DVD release.

I agree with each sentiment.

The great thing about this album is that it is highly listenable all the way through...........every single track.

I agree with pub crawler's echoed sentiments.

On a sidenote...

It's frustrating to see dozens of threads popup about an artist after they are mentioned in the same breath, setlist, or can of pickled eggs as U2.

The efforts of many who post in Bang and Clatter are devalued and rendered useless when their threads are ignored by the attention deficient masses, until of course the stars magically align (re: namedropping). I urge those who have not already to abandon your hardcore fan waterwings and explore the uncharted. A band does not require the notarized seal of approval from Bono to be worthy of a listen, or a liking for that matter.

At the very least, try a new frame of reference for describing music.

I promise that I will too.

Or I will give you candy.

And pickled eggs.

I know you did lmjh. It was probably SkeeK, mofo, or the bear of many deaths who introduced me to them.

However, your halloween gimmick didn't have enough passion.

Man with pencil for an arm wins.

I gave him some candy.

For me, it was Pitchfork who introduced me to Arcade Fire. Read a terrific review last fall, saw them play in Philly last November and have been a fan ever since. Peace!

Interesting group. They sound like "The Rheostatics" on drugs.
