The reasons that I generally hate Arcade Fire are the reasons that I enjoy Reflektor so much -- those being, they have toned down most of their less forgivable affectations in favor of a new set of far more interesting affectations.
I don't have time to really get into it right now, but trust me -- I will, soon. If there's one thing I love about this board, it is using it to talk about Arcade Fire.

I have always hated Arcade Fire. That has always been based on repeated, meticulous listens to their records. One after the next. Having heard some but not all of the new record is more than enough for me to have formulated the perfectly functional opinion that yup, I still hate Arcade Fire is enough for me. Based on that, please don't try to take away my right to make inflammatory remarks about them because it's basically all I've got left around here. Especially when the new version of Arcade Fire is essentially the same as the old one with a bunch of crappy white-boy funk shoehorned into the margins. That's basically what of Montreal did when they became intolerable, and it certainly didn't do anything for me then.
