Album Of Last Month

Arcade Fire 'Reflektor' (Sonovox)

Let's just cut the crap. The costume rules, the secret shows - all this 'fun' Arcade Fire are having presenting their new album. It's out the way. And what do we have? One of the albums of the year and possibly this group's greatest record so far. The last one was exceptional and the first great AF album. But this one? Even James Murphy on production didn't ruin it. 'Afterlife' is immune to ever getting boring. It's a long album but there's too much gold on it to care. We really are lucky to be living in the age of Arcade Fire.
