Well, where do I start with this band. They make the most beautiful music and every song is excellently produced with the lyrics always being written by the band, which I respect. I saw Arcade Fire at Glastonbury and let me tell you, it was the greatest show I have ever seen with my very own eyes. It was as if I was in a bubble for a hour or two, just enjoying the effect and atmosphere these guys give out to you.You really feel like you can connect with every song lyrically and melodiously. I would love to see them again in the future and always tell people about them because their music deserves more listeners. It's poetry at it's most beautiful.
