Welcome Back, Polls!
In case you're new to Il Buono--or have short-term memory loss--we used to have weekly polls that asked relatively pointless (but nonetheless contentious) questions. Those polls are going to come back, I think. Why did they leave? I don't know. Why are they coming back? I don't know. Doesn't matter. Anyhow, they are back, and the first one asks a question that has been on my mind since the release of Neon Bible: will all Arcade Fire albums be disappointing because Funeral set the bar so high? Even if the band continues to put out great music (such as that on their latest, quite good The Suburbs), will said music be dismissed as passable because it doesn't measure up to the group's instant-classic debut? That's the question, now you give the answer.
