Don't let the whole "concept album" thing scare you away from the Arcade Fire's award-winning third LP

SONY

In stock

While one could raise the argument that both Funeral and Neon Bible move in the orbit of the "concept album," Montreal's Arcade Fire officially went for it on its excellent third album, The Suburbs. You don't need to follow the loose narrative thread uniting these 16 songs about youthful suburban malaise to enjoy The Suburbs, though. After delivering its Big Rock Album with Neon Bible, the Arcade Fire proffers a more subtle and varied selection of tunes here, ranging from the Neil Young-esque title track to the Springsteen-checkin' arena stomp of "Ready To Start" to the full-on ABBA splendour of "Empty Room." The band's finest album to date, it wound up winning Juno and Grammy awards for Album of the Year and taking the Polaris Music Prize title in 2011.
