Album Review: I'm From Barcelona, "Who Killed Harry Houdini?"
A lot of people are surprised by this album, but actually, the almost emo-like minor notes struck here are the natural reverse of the irrational pop exuberance of the first album. Same everything-but-the-kitchen-sink attitude towards songwriting/instrumentation: big choruses, strings, horns, massive, poppy swells and dips. Overall, OK, not great. RIFYLOP: Arcade Fire
Play: 1+++(pathos, catchy), 2+, 3, 6, 8++
