Arcade Fire presents Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)

I love Arcade Fire. From the moment I saw they used weird and unusual instruments and had such a large cast of players I was hooked. When The Suburbs came out I was unimpressed by it. It didn't have the initial impact that Funeral and Neon Bible had. I listened to it a few times and never found a way into it. Then the other day I saw the video for "Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)" and was blown away. I love the Blondie influence that is so upfront and the hypnotic drums and synth sounds. Now I am going to go back to The Suburbs and see what I was missing out on...
