    Maybe so, maybe not.

    Yeah, I pretty much worship everything that AF has ever put out but on first listen...um...this isn't doing it for me.

    On the whole I liked Reflektor a lot, but this song seems like a full-on dive into the album's worst and most tedious tendencies.

    Mavis Staples is cool at least. But the song itself...no thanks.

    It's not worse than a bunch of Reflektor though.

    I've always wanted to love this band but never could. This isn't doing much to help.

    Funeral is still my favorite from them. Still excited to listen to the new album

    Was lucky enough to catch it four times technically: Coachella, Barclays Center (2 out of 3 nights) and Panorama Festival. Each of them was a religious experience.

    Yea I think this song is total trash. Personally I love the first 3 records and Reflektor is just.....difficult. It's overlong and I don't care too much for the sound they were going for. But whatever.

    I too went to Barclays and Panorama haha. Also saw the Brooklyn warehouse show they played under the name The Reflektors before the album was out, still one of my favorite shows ever.

    I think this song is okay on its own, but for an entire album? No thanks.
