i look at allmusic and pitchfork for reviews of albums i had previously anticipated.

Haven't heard anything on its quality except what I've read here, so I'm going to restrain myself from downloading it so that I can buy the CD when I get home.

I have Funeral and think it's okay but cannot get into their sound. I had Neon Bible and trashed it because it was ****ing awful. "NE-ON BI-BLE, NE-ON BI-BLE." Yikes.

I'd be willing to give this album a listen if someone provided me with a link because I definitely won't be buying it.

At least you're not relying on Rolling Stone.

Anyway, just downloaded...gonna give it a listen and post my deux cents when finished.

i think the biggest difference is that "The Suburbs" has a dirtier sound, but it still sounds good there's this one track (can't remember the name) that i really liked

i don't really use anything for album reviews but when i do i usually look at paste. rolling stone's reviews get a little pretentious at times, and at many times the reviews don't even give a good explanation of the album

So, fuck the haterzzzz cause this album's actually really (pretty) good! I'm down with the title track, Empty Room blows my mind, and Half Life II is really cool as well. Solid album. Not Album of the Year or anything, but really solid. This is slightly worse than Neon Bible, which I think had incredible moments but overall lacked in quality songwriting. I feel like AF tried to compensate on Neon Bible for that lack with super lush production. On the Suburbs, some of the songs aren't that great either, but the production is much more lo-fi and the songs sound more honest. And call me crazy, but I like Win's lyrics a lot. I feel like he 'gets me' even though they can be pretentious and stupid at times.

Good album. 3.5/5


edit: Lol "half life II"

I'd hate to call anyone's opinion wrong, or moronic, but I will here.

Anyway, giving it a first listen, I like it. And that's good, because these guys aren't The Beatles or Dylan or Radiohead, they can't consistently put out masterpieces, I'd say two in a row is a good feat, Radiohead barely made 3 in a row. But I haven't heard the whole thing 3 or 4 times so I can't comment. Funeral took a while for me to see it as a masterpiece, and that's like my favorite album.

edit: Oh, and first impressions point to Good.
