Arcade Fire - Reflector FULL NEW ALBUM HQ. Sammy Lupes. Reflektor is the fourth studio album by Canadian indie rock band Arcade Fire, released on October 28, 2013 on Merge Records. A double album, Reflektor was co-produced by LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy, regular Arcade Fire producer Markus Dravs, and the band itself. Arcade Fire's lush, imaginative 85-minute fourth album is a triumph, but not a victory lap the band never sounds content enough for that. Instead, Reflektor is an anxious, occasionally downright paranoid album that asks big, barbed questions aimed not just at the man who may or may not be upstairs, but the more terrestrial gods of rock history, too. Instead, Reflektor is an anxious, occasionally downright paranoid album that asks big. Album 2013 13 Songs. Arcade Fire. Alternative 2013. Reflektor, the Montreal collective's much anticipated fourth long-player and first double-album, moves the group even further from pop culture sanctification with a seismic yet impenetrable 13-track set at 75 minutes its one minute over standard single disc capacity that guts the building but leaves the roof intact. Reflektor was released on September 9, 2013, as the first single from Arcade Fire's fourth studio album, Reflektor. The band began working on the track in 2011, with vocalist and guitarist Win Butler noting, We recorded a little bit in Louisiana with the Haitian percussionists and we kind of lived with that. It's an incredibly long process. The track also features contributions from regular Arcade Fire collaborators, Owen Pallett and Colin Stetson, alongside legendary English musician David Bowie.

I love Neon Bible ... Because of time, history and Glastonbury, but Reflektor is something else.
Anyone else have a version where the second record has side 3 twice?
Pretty sure I got mine from the record store here in town. Pretty weird pressing mistake.
yes, I do. I just notice that it doesn't have the side B of vinyl 1 (starting with We Exist) I bought it in the tour Reflektor at Barclays Center NYC, and yours?
Does anyone know anything about this? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Reflektor-ARCADE-FIRE-cassette-tape-album-LIMITED-NEW-cassette-store-day-/262784431491?hash=item3d2f2c3583:g:mf0AAOSw8gVX-LxlIt doesn't have a listing here and if I were to guess I would say it's probably unofficial.
I'm thinking, i'm sure, it's the best album of 2013.
Nothing written by The Arcades fails but grows. This one is splendid. My highlight though is Afterlife a fusion of LCDss and revelation. Cheers guys!
Easily the best album of 2013 so far. Brilliantly diverse across both volumes full of beautifully crafted tunes. Absolutely adore 'Porno' which sounds like no other Arcade Fire track. Give it a few listens and you will be hooked.
Same here. Porno is an absolutely amazing song. One of the best things they've ever done. Shame they haven't played it live on this tour yet.
I think porno is the best track on the album in my opinion
I wouldn't describe this as sounding 'terrible and distorted', Maybe it could have been mastered a bit better and the trebles are somewhat on the high side, but compared to the bass fest that is the cd/flac version, the vinyl sounds better. Looks great, too. Artwork and typography are beautiful. The price is too high for a mass release product, I agree, but what you get is a fine piece of vinyl art. IMHO. (In case you're interested: I use a Music Hall MMF 7.1 turntable with Goldring Eroica H cartridge, Marantz PM8003 AMP and Phonar P4 EDMA speakers.)
Exepensive, because 2 x 180g Gatefold, both inner sleeves are printed and "thick-cardboardish" plus everything (except the vinyl labels) are printed on reflecting metallic surface. Call it "deluxe". But beware: The vinyl sounds terrible and distorted - probably they took the digital master for vinyl pressing.
Running my own mastering-business, I would like to pull out a bit of information:It's a common misbelieve that everybody needs a high-end Hi-Fi-System to hear a vinyl record. While a 50+ EUR pickup / system will bring you much more listening-fun in terms of transparency (linearity that is) and depth (stereo-imaging AND space), it is also true that to obtain fully compatible records, that even the low-priced Ortofon DJ-needles can play back, you just need one thing: A dynamic mix / master and the decision of the cutting engineer to take out 1 or 2 dB of volume after he realises the test-cut was to "edgy". The other problems lies within the fact that a lot of cutters use VERY high-end playback-machines to test the vinyl cut while many of the "indie" or "techno" end-clients will use their DJ-needles. Big problem this one!If Reflektor is pointing out that he feels that this record seems louder then most of his other records, then it looks like the vinyl is simply cut too hot. But someone has to confirm that, otherwise it's just an unproven theory. I would recommend to record it in a Digital Audio Workstation, level it properly to around 0dBFS (ignoring the occasional limited peaks) and read the RMS-value that appears. If it is anything lower then -10dB RMS then this is the reason why this record is distorted (RMS is represented in minus-figures, so -8dB RMS is "hotter" then -10dB RMS). The cutters I work with (Hail to Randmuzik!) do recommmend a maximum -12dB RMS for a reason!
While most of my other records sounds fine or even great on the same system (I compared again to be sure), it must be something with the vinyl. In direct comparison this vinyl sounds too loud/distorted for my taste.
. .
The vinyl was cut by Ray Janos at Sterling, the cd was mastered by Tim Young. My ex sounds great.
Well - just my opinion. I am sometimes picky when it comes to vinyl sound. I played this record with a SHURE M97xE audiophile system. The record feels very dynamic (means: very loud and very silent passages), but sucks in the loud passages - or when the bass is quite dominant. A lot of bass-distortions and clipping. Feels simply too loud in the mastering for vinyl purposes. I wouldn't wonder if peaks showed a -8dB RMS which is vinyl-killer. Plus: Some sides appear to be very "mono".I listened to the entire record on Spotify before the vinyl has been delivered - and it sounded way better. That makes me think they did not bother to re-master it for vinyl. Usually I know about this problem nowadays, but I expected more with such a succesful band like Arcade Fire and the immense amount of money they put into promotion and packaging. Anyway I am going to check the record with a mastering engineer - maybe he feels the same or can possibly explain why it sounds so bad. On the other hand: The sleeve and packaging looks awesome - more like a collector's item than a vinyl listening pleasure.
Really? Terrible and distorted? I'm dying to buy this, but...
Why is it so expensive? Can anybody say anything about the quality of the LPs? Besides the music is it worth the money?
Sounds like you have the us-pressing. For $20 I would have bought without blinking. However, I'm in Europe asking about the EU-pressing which is a Lot more expensive. Just look at those selling the EU pressing here. My local shop is asking $45 for it!
Expensive? I got mine for $19.99 and it's a 2xLP. That seems reasonable...
we exist isn't track 2 on the 2xlp?
Yeah oddly enough it isn't. Now I'm stuck wondering which is the official track list.
Nope. It's track 1 on side 2. Similar to The Suburbs, the track order is shifted to make all the songs fit. The flow of the album isn't harmed at all. Loving it right now!
Cool covers ! :)
