As you probably know, Arcade Fire's new album Reflektor was officially released today. With its lyrical references to the Orpheus myth, its influences from Haitian music, and producution help from LCD Soundsystem's James Murphy, Reflektor is a grand addition to the band's discography. Always thematic but never totally conceptual, Arcade Fire's albums are best when listened to in full but most tracks are still great out of context. This time around, their title track is a definite hit single.
It's too soon for me to rank Reflektor among the rest but then again I'm not sure I'll ever have a favorite Arcade Fire album; each one is a unique and solid record that moves and charms me with every listen.
