Favorite Albums of 2013 – #20: Arcade Fire

20. Arcade Fire – Reflektor

You’ve got to hand it to Arcade Fire. Four albums in and they’ve embraced marketing and big arena tours almost knowing everlasting fame is only for a select few in the music world. This time around they pull LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy to produce with pretty constant results. The electronics add a pop sheen that can be hard to resist even by the most snobbish of music fans and several songs are immediately likable. There is no real central theme this time; just a bunch of fun songs.

Favorite songs: “Normal Person” | “You Already Know” | “It’s Never Over (Oh Orpheus)”

The entire list… so far.
