"On their fantastic third album, The Suburbs, they aim higher than ever, with
Roman numerals and parentheses in the song titles. In their dictionary,
"suburbs" is nowhere near "subtlety". But that just adds to the emotional
"...The strange thing about Arcade Fire is how they instinctively scale their
most intimate confessions to arena-rock levels, rolling out big drums and glossy
keyboards." - Rob Sheffield, Rolling Stone, August 5, 2010 issue, pg.
