Anyway that really put me off them and I think they sound/look/act too much like The Arcade Fire to be honest Even though I think they have been around longer? I just prefer The Arcade Fire.

If memory serves me, Win Butler has slagged off U2. So have Robert Smith and Jim Kerr. This doesn't mean I don't like The Cure, Simple Minds or Arcade Fire.

It just means not everyone on the planet likes or agrees with U2. Hell, not even everyone on Interference likes or agrees with all-U2!

But anyway, back to British Sea Power . . . .

I'm adding "Lights Out For Darker Skies" and "No Lucifer" to my list, along with "Atom" and "Waving Flags".

Hell, the whole album is just

I can't wait to go see these guys in a couple weeks!!

Fair enough, if originality isn't your priority.

British Sea Power released their first album in 2003.

Funeral was released in 2004.

Maybe Arcade Fire sounds just like British Sea Power?

Exactly!

I hope to see them next month. Unfortunately I have to make sure you're not required to be 21 or older.

An astute observation.

Banging Cocktail waitresses two at a time is his priority.

I've never cared much for British Sea Power, but I quite enjoyed Do You Like Rock Music?...perhaps because, yes, I do quite like rock music! I dunno. I just think that the songs are better than they used to be.

About half of the people on here are right, too, for what it's worth--Arcade Fire sounds like British Sea Power, rather than the other way around.

...Actually, I guess that the best way to put it is just by saying that they sound quite similar, at times. Oh, and Howard Bilerman, who helped to produce the new record, has also worked with Arcade Fire. Who knew?

Then you shouldn't like Arcade Fire, since British Sea Power came first.

Funnily enuff....was watching Jools Holland on Friday night.....British Sea Power were on and I thought, hello, they are very similar to Arcade Fire. But I didnt know hich act was about first.....I just assumed it was Arcade Fire. The drum patterns are disturbingly similar
