Arcade Fire-The Suburbs

has anyone listened to this yet? in the process of downloading right now. I'm a pretty big fan of Funeral and Neon Bible was OK.

All the reviews are saying that it's better than OK Computer. Sadly, this is not possible seeing as OK Computer is the greatest album ever. That being said, I'm still really looking forward to The Suburbs, but I'm going to wait until it's officially released and purchase it.

I grabbed it when it leaked like a week back, I don't think it was better than OK Computer, but I love Radiohead so I could be biased. That being said, I think I like it more than Neon Bible but less than Funeral. It doesn't really have the driving, anthem type songs that Funeral had with Power out, Wake Up, and Rebellion, instead the musical style seems to be similar to Neon Bible if I recall correctly, but I think it improved upon that formula. I haven't listened to it in like 5 days though, so I'll have to check it out again at some point.

Worth buying for sure though.

Is this album worth buying for someone who has never been able to stand the music of Arcade Fire?

Honestly, as a big fan of funeral, I've gotten through 8-9 tracks and I'm very bored outside of the title track. I hate to be "that guy" but I'm disappointed.

I gave it a listen. It's pretty damn good. My favorite track has to be Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains).
