Poll: So about that new Arcade Fire album...

STARCADEFIRE9-03.jpgDo you love this man and the music he makes? (Kyle Gustafson/FTWP)

By Chris Richards

Yesterday, I phoned in to WNYC's Soundcheck program to argue with with Time Out music writer Sophie Harris about the value of Arcade Fire's fatiguing new album "The Suburbs." The debate was fun (listen here) and the comments on WNYC's website were feisty (scroll down here).

But we wanted to turn the discussion over to Click Track readers. Are you enjoying your summer in "The Suburbs?" Or does this album make you want to take a nap? Vote in our poll below and share your thoughts in the comments. And if you need me, I'll be sleeping under my desk.

Well I'm probably somewhere closer to the middle, but I do enjoy it. Did you like the show at Merriweather? I can't remember if it was you or someone else who wrote the review of it?

Chris Klimek reviewed the Merriweather gig and enjoyed it. Alas, I was at a Gucci Mane concert. Priorities.

Chris, how would you separate the self-seriousness of AF from that of a band like Fugazi? Is it that AF puts the emphasis on the SELF where Fugazi's seriousness is directed outward?
