Well my "review" won't be that positive too. :P

 

If you can wait till the iTunes/CD rip great! You honestly aren't missing much if you've been listening to the live songs.

 

What do you mean? In Reflektor (the song)?

Apparently on the leaked CD version there's a hidden track before Reflektor which is like a reflection of the whole album.

I haven't heard it yet, trying to find a file that features it.

 

EDIT: Found it.

 

Oh. I don't have that. And I thought that was part of Supersymmetry. Are you sure it's a CD rip? (Send me the link if it is please.)

My simple review

 

We Exist: Didnt ever care for this one! Was my least favorite on the HCTNT special on NBC. It's a grower but it's too bland to me.

 

Flashbulb Eyes: HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT! BY FAR WORST SONG ON ALBUM!

 

Here Comes The Night Time: Love the live version but I feel like parts of the studio version come out a little flat! Still like it though!

 

Normal Person: Again the live version on HCTNT was amazing and powerful yet seems very flat here! Still like it though!

 

You Already Know: One of my favorites! Starts off hilarious AHKADE FIRAAAA!

 

Joan of Arc: Found myself skipping this one constantly! I dont know what it is probably just confused about the review saying it sounds like the tardis. That alone got me excited.

 

Here Comes The Part Time Pt 2: Very simple and reminds me of Sprawl from the Suburbs.

 

Awful Sound: Easily the best song off the album. It sucks you in immediately and all you can do is nod along with Win.

 

It's Never Over: Liked the live version but was curious for good quality studio version and wasnt disappointed. Both AS and INO really grab your attention and dont let go!

 

Porno: Dont get the hate on this song! Is it my favorite? No! But I like the vibe!

 

Supersymmetry: Another favorite of mine! It's absolutely stunning from beginning to end. One of the most beautiful songs AF has ever made.

 

ill give it a 6.5 out of 10

luckily got that cause im a bit disappointed

Three songs in.

 

Bored by the first track and got scared it was going to be abysmal.

Like the second track, but I'll always want it to be old school Arcade Fire.

Third track not bothered about but preferred it to the first one as at least they were branching out.

Okay so today I started listening to Arcade Fire, I'm listening the Funeral, Rebellion Lies was the only song the I already knew before listening to it but I really like the album.

 

I will listen to Neon Bible and The Suburbs in the next hours

 

They're all great. You're in for a real treat.

 

Neon Bible is my personal favorite, followed closely by Funeral; however, The Suburbs wasn't as strong in my opinion.

 

I feel like Reflektor will wedge itself in between Neon Bible and Funeral.

 

ps I have not heard it yet. Is it good? Scale of 1 to 10?

Seems to be fitting between Neon Bible and The Suburbs

I haven't heard it yet either.

 

People on other boards like Us Kids Know (AF forum) or 4chan's /mu/ are really liking this. Seems like Coldplayers aren't.

I'm Christina, by the way kids. :nice: Been a long time since I've been on here, but I knew it'd be my trusty place to find this leak.

 

Anyhoo, I friggin' love the album. Haven't listened to all of it yet but what I've heard is even exceeding my expectations. "Porno" is ridiculously good. Ugh. These songs will be EPIC live, for sure.

 

Hope ya'll like it, I know I am. :D!

Cuz Coldplayers be all sentimental and shit. I'm assuming it's a little more dancy, less of a tear-jerker than previous albums?

Welcome back, then!

 

Thank you!! :nice:

Right?? It's ridiculously good!

 

Currently trying not to dance around my office to "Here Comes the Night Time".

 

The album is a change of pace from the old AF, yes. But it's done so well it's not anything of a disappointment, I don't think.

Which is unusual because this board seems to love the lesser albums of great bands. And not in a hipster way. When they go all mainstream and Coldplay.

 

But this album seems alright. Awful first song. The rest has been fine (just finished Awful Sound.

 

They'll never reach the heights of Funeral, or even get close to Neon Bible, but I like them experimenting.
