Reflektions on Arcade Fire

Despite debuting at number one upon release last fall (and subsequently winning the best album Juno), a year later "Reflektor" feels like a cultural disappointment, having failed to expand their commercial or critical reach. It's not a bad album, but for a band with two bona fide classics under its belt, it wasn't good enough. But if the record didn't sound like it was coming from the biggest band in the world, the live show sure as hell does.
