Arcade Fire - 'Reflektor' Review

As someone who wasn't enthralled with Arcade Fire's Funeral, I wasn't initially on board with this Very Important Rock Band. But Neon Bible and The Suburbs turned me around on these guys and gals from Canada. Now comes Reflektor, which is, yes, pretentious. But what does "pretentious" even mean, really? It's a pejorative thrown around so much -- and says so little. I get into that (and the album, of course) in my review for Playboy.
