September music: Arcade Fire.



My September listening was Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs." To be perfectly honest, I get bored by the time the 4th song comes on from the album and end up changing it.

I want to like it, I really do. That doesn't change the fact that it seems like work to listen to it. I've been waiting all month to make a judgment, hoping I would change my mind or that my musical palette might mature a little but it hasn't.

From what I can tell, I'm the only person in the world who isn't in love with this album. Still be my friend?

  1. I'm still learning to love it myself, so I feel you. However, I've been obsessed with a few songs lately, namely 'Rococo', 'City With No Children', and 'Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)', which will likely end up my song of the year. Maybe giving those some spins on their own will help with the maturation process? It is a lengthy album, which always demands more of the listener. These guys are geniuses, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to fall hard for this album any week now, so don't give up hope!

  2. In answer to that last question:

    Um, maybe.
