The mixing bowl of Arcade Fire’s individual parts.

Everything now. Arcade Fire aren’t the only band playing with the modern condition with their new material, but they’ve nailed it to the wall better than most.

Twitter accounts fire out ‘content’. Statements about ‘the brand’ are obviously tongue in cheek, but not so much so that they feel entirely out of place. In the avalanche of information, it all bleeds into one.

Like a demented nursery rhyme, ‘Creature Comfort’ too becomes the mixing bowl of Arcade Fire’s individual parts. The synthy bop of ‘Sprawl II’, the magical twinkle of ‘Rebellion (Lies)’ - everything is blended together. And it works. Pulsing under the surface, the occasional explosions of euphoria still burst through. “On and on,” the refrain goes. If they keep this up, that’s absolutely fine with us. Stephen Ackroyd
