Arcade Fire - Ready To Start

http://www.themorningstarr.co.uk/images/arcade-fire/arcade-fire.jpg
After what seems like an age, Arcade Fire are set to release their new album next month. A few tracks have been doing the rounds of late, including Ready To Start. While there is a lovely melody to this new single, it does feel slightly restrained and ends up falling a little flat. Sure, it builds and builds in the way Arcade Fire do so well, but, just when you think you are going to be smashed around the face with one of those huge, rousing choruses, it never materialises.

Still, although it's more in the vein of Keep The Car Running than the steamrollering magnificence of No Cars Go, it does enough to whet the appetite for the upcoming LP.
