Rolling Stone Magazine review: 4.5 Stars out of 5

“If this is heaven/I need something more,” Win Butler and Régine Chassagne, Arcade Fire’s founding singers, declare in close, almost whispered harmony as the opening title song of their band’s extraordinary new album goes into high gear. “Reflektor” is seven and a half busy minutes of art and party. Over a strident-disco hybrid of the Rolling Stones’ “Miss You” and Yoko Ono’s “Walking on Thin Ice,” Arcade Fire and their new co-producer, James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem, throw brittle-fuzz guitar licks, grunting bass, mock-grand piano and ballooning synth chords across deep reverb like frantic instrumental argument. They also find room for David Bowie, one of Arcade Fire’s first and biggest fans, who sings with Butler near the end and repurposes the descending vocal flourish from his 1975 hit “Fame.”
