Last week, Arcade Fire released its fifth album, Everything Now. In my review for UPROXX.com, I called the LP "cranky" and "condescending." Was I too harsh? I solicited a second opinion from Jeremy Gordon from Spin and found ... that he basically agreed with me. We both see Everything Now as one of Arcade Fire's weaker albums, a surprisingly sour commentary on contemporary online culture from a band that is known for wide-eyed earnestness. In this episode, Jeremy and I do a post-mortem on one of the year's most anticipated -- and disappointing -- rock albums and try to figure out where Arcade Fire went wrong.
