On Arcade Fire’s “The Suburbs”

So can you understand?
Why I want a daughter while I’m still young
I wanna hold her hand
And show her some beauty
Before this damage is done

But if it’s too much to ask, it’s too much to ask
Then send me a son

— “The Suburbs,” Arcade Fire

Oh, MAN, this album, you guys, what are you waiting for. If you haven’t memorized it yet, you’re already way behind.

So good. The entire thing. Especially the first 16 songs or so.
