    actually I found myself playing this album a lot during the last days, and it definitely grows with listening …I have the feeling it could end up in my 2004 top ten :D
    so, thanks again for the hint, fata morgana! :!: :)

    I like the list of Similar artists on AMG: Arcade Fire

    British Sea Power
    Neutral Milk Hotel
    Clinic
    David Bowie
    Pixies
    Roxy Music
    Causey Way
    Spoon
    The Walkmen
    The Olivia Tremor Control
    The Polyphonic Spree
    Interpol

    …Talking Heads would be a good addition to this list, as well as Modest Mouse.
    the songs seem to be simple on the surface but are more elaborate when you take a closer listen. it’s definitely worth to check them, I’d say :)
