Yeah, I've been reading some reviews and it sounds like it's by far their worst album. The Pitchfork review was particularly scathing, especially since they have traditionally showered that band with praise.

Reviews for Arcade Fire are all over the place - from 5 star to 1 star. Depends on how much you like dance-pop or ABBA.

After one listen, I can say I liked "Infinite Content", "Put Your Money On Me" and "We Don't Deserve Love".

I think this might be the only time I've used this word to describe music, but I really do find this to be inspiring.

Recently re-visited Tricky and the trip hop era. This track is beautiful, but incredibly dark and moody, perfect for a lovely summer day! Enjoy!

Straightforward and easy to digest, but man, is Spoon ever great. I'm always surprised when people say they don't know this band when I'm sure they've heard them before and didn't know it. This is a few years old now, but I never get tired of it.

Whenever I'm in the mood for face melting solos mixed with sweeping theatrical hard rock with a latin beat and some darkness to it, I go for The Mars Volta. This is as close as they get to making a single, but it's a good entry point into their sound.



If you want a taste of something with more energy, here you go:

Anyone watch NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts? They've had a few really good ones lately.

The new Queens of the Stone Age leaked the other day and it's really good.
