Haiti is one of their best, I'll go that far. I don't know about the absolute best. I don't have a definitive best. That's in the mix.

Imo, it would've been a huge mistake to play Sprawl II if their goal is to get mainstream acclaim. Nothing screams indie as much as high-pitched female vocals.

I see your point, but we're talking about two different things. I'm referring to indie chick vocals, and I'm pretty sure you all know what I'm talking about.

...this. I don't dislike Sprawl II at all, but the vocals prevent me from calling it one of the best songs of 2010.

Eh... I will go with this song more than others, but add that I prefer when she's singing backup over lead.

I actually agree with you on that point, but somehow Sprawl II is the exception. Just a great song.

I just drove home through a blizzard that had a knocked the power out, and sang "Power Out" while I drove. Well, I sang the three or four lines I could remember and then stopped.

Agreed to all. I thought Arcade Fire missed a big opportunity at the Grammys by not playing Sprawl II live. In a setting like that, you have to break out your best song.
