    Here Comes the Night Time had me curious, but i would agree on hearing the album as a whole first. And the special after SNL wasn't anything life altering. entertaining, sure.

    That's too early in the set for Tunnels. Kicking off with Here comes the Nighttime will do what Ready to Start did X1000.

    1. Here comes the Nighttime
    2. Reflektor
    3. Sprawl II

    Other keepers (in no particular order), but but I'm afraid half of these won't make the setlist half the time.
    Rebellion (Lies)
    Neighborhood #3 (Power Out)
    Neighborhood #2 (Laika)
    Wake Up
    No Cars Go
    Haiti
    Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)
    Intervention
    Keep the Car Running
    We Used to Wait
    Month of May
    The Suburbs
    Headlights Look Like Diamonds
    Antichrist Television Blues maybe?


    Suburbs tracks that won't make the cut:
    Modern Man
    Empty Room
    Suburban War
    City With No children
    Speaking in Tongues
    Deep Blue
    Half Light II (No Celebration)
    Ready to Start
    Rococco
    Sprawl I (Flatland)

    I watched the special. Here Comes The Night was cool, don't remember much of the second song...the last one (Normal Person?) had potential but came off rather 'ordinary' sounding in the chorus.

    That's quite the approach.

    Agreed. I really hope they play "Modern Man." I feel like I'm one of the few who actually likes that song.

    I haven't watched the special yet, but I did just watch the main SNL performance. Reflektor was probably the goofiest performance I've ever seen on that show, but I loved every minute of it.

    Yep, I felt the same thing after watching SNL performance/NBC special last night. The only thing that stuck out was the ending of "Here Comes the Night Time." I mean the audience doing synchronized dance was just ridiculous.

    Spin heard the album last night...

    The experience of the advance "listening session" is an unnatural way to hear an album, especially for the first time: You've got one chance to conjure all kinds of deep thoughts and definitive judgments about a body of work people have usually labored over for years. Unlike a film screening, only your sense of hearing is engaged, and because music tends to conjure a sense of place, you can end up envisioning the walls of a conference room and the blank stares of the other people at the session every time you hear certain songs for years afterward. And although the listening session for Arcade Fire’s fourth LP Reflektor, due October 29 on Merge Records, was held at New York’s famed Electric Lady Studios in a lovely dimmed room with a pair of kick-ass speakers, this knee-jerk pre-reviewer freely admits to many shortcomings in the following due to the above factors.

    1. REFLEKTOR SOUNDS LIKE ARCADE FIRE, BUT THEY'RE A WHOLE NEW BAND.
    That majestic, cinematic, anthemic sound is still there but it's subtler, and the group's confidence, swing, and swagger have grown by leaps and bounds. They've also finally learned how to put some air in their music: The album veers masterfully from spare to sprawling (and vice versa) in an instant.

    2. THE DANCEY THING PRETTY MUCH GOES AWAY AFTER THE FIRST COUPLE OF SONGS...
    ... Although the emphasis on rhythm doesn't. The album opens with the by-now-well-known title track, which is essentially a several-minute-long “extended dance remix” of a three-and-a-half minute song, like on the countless 1980s-era 12-inch singles that co-producer James Murphy spins when he DJs. (He probably even knows that the early Soft Cell and Duran Duran 12-inch remixes destroy the album versions.) And while we’re on that topic, the bassline of the second track, "We Exist" (the disco-y second song performed on the Arcade Fire in Here Comes the Night Time program that followed Saturday Night Live last weekend) is "Like a Virgin" grafted onto "Billie Jean."

    8. THE STRINGS ARE PRESENT BUT MUCH LESS PROMINENT THAN BEFORE.
    Arcade Fire are now a sextet, with Sarah Neufeld relegated to a full-time supporting/touring role similar to that of fellow violinist Owen Pallette.

    12. JOIN US IN PRAYER THAT REFLEKTOR DOES NOT TURN ARCADE FIRE INTO U2... ANY MORE THAN THEY ALREADY ARE.
    Because it could. Reflektor is like Mad Men or a Mercedes or Jonathan Franzen’s Freedom: whether or not you like it, the quality of the art and the scale of the accomplishment are undeniable.

    FWIW, I've always loved this band because they could become the next U2. Widescreen ambition and big emotions and the communal experience of both are supposed to be shunned why exactly? Especially when artistry and innovation aren't sacrificed . . .

    I'm with you. Also, I'm not the least bit sad that Reflektor won't have an abundance of string sections and that Arcade Fire sounds like a "whole new band." It's important (for better or for worse) that artists evolve and don't put out the same record over and over again.

    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Rococo is too bombastic to not make the set list.

    I can't believe I wasted my time reading that review. What a bunch of elitist nonsense... apparently the Arcade Fire backlash is in full force with this schmuck.
