13 Songs, 1 Hour 15 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Familiar Arcade Fire staples—disillusionment, spiritual skepticism—arrive in a thrilling new sonic dialect on Reflektor. Shaped by collaboration with Haitian musicians and bolstered by some of the band’s high-profile admirers (LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy produces while David Bowie guests on the triumphant 7-minute title track), this 2-disc fourth album sashays unstoppably from pulsing electro-funk (“Porno”) to glam rock (“Joan Of Arc”). A gutsy, glimmering exercise in louche ‘70s experimentation.
