Arcade Fire home
Third time lucky is probably not a phrase Arcade Fire have heard before. Their three albums to date have been nothing but successful. Funeral (2004) was ranked number one on MTV2's '50 Greatest Albums of the Year' in the United Kingdom, Neon Bible (2007) won the 'Alternative Album of the Year' award at the Juno Awards and now The Suburbs has gone to number one in the US, UK and Canadian charts. Never mind passé air guitars, for this lot you need an air-glockenspiel. Or mandolin. Or hurdy gurdy. Experimental but so listenable.
