I heard about as much as I thought I would. It's very rhythmically Murphy, both with the drums and the bass parts (there's a synthy bass part running through some parts in particular that made me think of him). But Arcade Fire is well established enough that he was never going to turn them into LCD.

The lead synth line in the first half sounds like it could have come straight from an LCD Soundsystem track, I think.

Totally hooked on the song now. It's repetetive but it works, at the moment at least. Love the recurring It's a Reflektor! shouts. So catchy. And French lyrics aways get a from me.

The percussion reminded me of "Dance Yrself Clean" immediately.

Bonus points for the Bowie-summoning sexy sax.

If there are two things in life YLB likes, it's Bowie and some sexed up sax playing. Combine the two? The impact is immeasurable.

Add "hear the lamentation of the women" and we've got the trifecta.

Love this band, but I really feel like they're starting to phone it in. Suburbs had too many songs that were just kind of plodding and didn't go anywhere (although awesomeness like "The Sprawl II" totally proved they're still geniuses)...I approach any new release from an artist as to whether or not I'd give a shit if I hadn't heard of this band before. Take away the Arcade Fire name and hardly anybody would care about this song. It's not an attention getter like the early singles.

Best borderline trolling since Anu's douchebag remarks on The Suburbs! I'm not sure how releasing a song that sounds like NOTHING the band has done before is phoning it in. Not to mention the balls of releasing a 7 minute-plus single when U2 was afraid to do the same thing with their last album.

Thanks for accusing us of only liking this because it has AF's name on it. You're "not here to rain on anybody's parade" but that's precisely what this comes off as.

Glad the internet wasn't around back in the 80s so we didn't have to listen to your take on releases by Talking Heads, Bowie, etc.

Definitely liking the song more on second listen.

But I still don't buy that all of those tracks (other than the closer) have the same 7:34 running length. That's ridiculous.

So I guess they're shooting for 9:00 PM PDT? I guess I'll see what they offer with the pre-order.

No way. One of the tracklistings for Yeezus had every song at 3:18 from memory, and that was summarily discounted. People have short memories.

I thought the video was great, and was nice to hear a high quality version of the song. I'm liking it more with each listen (and I've already listened to it a lot).
They're behind one of my favorite music experiences of all time (the wilderness downtown), I want to do this the right way.

Between paying list price, high shipping and tax, I reckon I spent $22-23 more for pre-ordering that I would've if I just went via Amazon. But, for that first crack at tickets...

With the size of venues they'll be playing, you'll be able to score a great seat in another presale or the general sale. Absolutely no sense preordering this from them if there's no exclusive variant. Maybe Merge will put something together, and they've got free shipping.

I agree. It wasn't difficult to get tickets for their MSG show last time. I might consider preordering the digital to get access to tickets if the LP doesn't come with download codes, but I will likely pass and wait for better deals.

The $uburbs, amirite?

Soooooooooooo.

Not feeling it.

And, let me be clear: I LOVE this band; as far as current, more modern bands go they are top 5 for me. Saw them in Chicago a few years ago and was blown away, etc....love all 3 of their albums. So, trust me, I very much want to love this song/new album. And, I make a lot of James Murphy jokes re: length of songs but I am an unabashed lover of Sound of Silver so it's not like I'm a hater.

I like that they're doing something different, even if it's just the one song, and Bowie floating on in is amazing....but I can't say that I really liked it. Maybe I will enjoy it better within the context of the album. I hope that is the case.

Sorry guys.

I dunno...each go round they get bigger... And I live in NYC where demand is always higher, plus people (probably wrongly) will be looking for a Bowie surprise appearance!
