If Empty Room was lyrically forgettable then City With No Children immediately makes up for that.
Musically speaking, simplicity is the name of the game here, allowing Win Butler’s vocals to really come to the forefront. Butler wonderfully conjures up images of loneliness via memories of his suburban upbringing.
Here, for the first time, we really start to get a feel for The Suburbs as a conceptual, thematically consistent record. It’s one of Butler’s finest lyrical moments since Funeral’s glorious Neighbourhood #1.
