Had a listen myself. That's a great comparison.
I have to say that Arcade Fire has bothered me recently. They've been kinda self indulgent and preachy....trying to be too mega-bandy.
But this album I really like. It's very good music. Unique fun sound. Some punk undertones. One of their best. I can't hate anymore.
Have a listen to this beauty. Ride it out...
The War On Drugs - Strangest Thing
Is that a touch of Don Henley in there?
