Author Notes

Arcade Fire's first song off their (objectively) best album. Taking the best elements of their two previous efforts "Funeral" and "Neon Bible", this album hits an emotional note that just resonates with any person who feels stuck in the suburbs ("Sprawl II" is a great example of this). I don't really know what else to add... 
 
The highlights of this track is the bass and keys part, which really carry the song and provide most of the melody. The drums provide a rock solid foundation that feels rigid and loose at the same time. The guitar is a little buried, but provides that extra instrumentation that fills in the gaps and contributes to that loose feel. The vocals sit on top, giving us a bleak melancholy look at life in the suburbs.
