‘The Turning of the Screw’ is one of their best album openers. Such swagger and that little ‘wow’ at the begging is ace

Teenage Fanclub did it with the guitars on Grand Prix. That was actually pretty cool.

Funeral sounds very of it’s time and outdated and Neon Bible stands, and will continue to stand the test of time as Arcade Fire’s best album.


I have Googled and I still have no idea who or what ‘budgov’ is and what you’re referencing.

It is wanky speak I guess, or rather you are every obsessed fan trying to convince those not quite into it of how great the band is…and inevitably failing. We’ve all been there though :slightly_smiling_face:

Reckon he’s talking about a post by the user ‘bugduv’.


Oh right, just a general light troll, I get it. Sorry @ttf not really concentrating

I’ll let you off with this as you say seems :kissing_heart:

thought that was his name

J Mascis would agree. “They can do what they want, I just turn up the guitars so loud I can’t even hear them” or something like that.


Seemed to convince a couple people :man_shrugging:

I’ve not been there

Impressed at the video. I didn’t get the impression anyone was convinced they were one the greatest bands ever by your prose (or the video).

I didn’t say ever, just in this half decade.

Although if we are pedantic, which is a given as its DiS, if they continue at this current rate I do think they will go down as a “best ever” akin to Radiohead, who they remind me of quite a lot - not coincidentally.

Also I see you’re attempting to wind me up again by being contrarian but given the nice comments I get around here for my writing - particularly for a band I’m backing as hard as this - I do actually think I’ve helped convince or aided people about this band, which given is what I semi-professionally do for a living isn’t too bad going in my books :wink:

Big Thief are a controversial band.
