    Complete tunless dirge. Put next to Arcade Fire this record is a complete joke. Sack one of the vocalists, drop a keyboard, get a bass player in and a decent producer. Overhyped Rubbsih Record Of The Year.

    Album of the year??? or "... Everything we can ask for from a modern indie band..."??? Are we listening to the same record? This ranks as one of the least imaginative and least creative albums this year. It only got one listen, and there was not a single catchy or appealing moment to bring me back. Come on, this is a criminally overrated album. And what's with the super-review below? Album of the year??? or "... Everything we can ask for from a modern indie band..."???

This is Modest Mouse part II, plain and simple, and it doesn't deserve all this hype. Expand

  1. Wolf Parade do what they do better than anyone in recent memory.
  2. On paper this all could sound average, but Wolf Parade's true talent is transforming the everyday into the unprecedented.
  3. They’ve cleaned up their grungy guitar lines (thank you Sub Pop), reworked a few of the best songs from their early EPs, and the result is undoubtedly the best contender for the Arcade Fire/Broken Social Scene-helm of 2005.
