Imagine the scene, it’s an award ceremony where Arcade Fire have to beat off the likes of Katy Perry for the Best Album award, and some stiff competition from a guy who accidentally coughed while a microphone was on (speculation only). GUESS WHO WON? That’s right kids, it’s Arcade Fire with an album so vastly superior to all of it’s counterpart nominations that it might as well have sent sealed bags of faeces to each of the losers tables with the note “Open when the award is announced, signed Arcady Firovitch”. Still, despite not being a surprise, it’s really quite lovely and well done them.
