Arcade Fire Won Another Album of the Year Award, But No One Got Mad This Time


The last time Arcade Fire won an award called Album of the Year, it was at the Grammys, and the vitriol appeared hard and fast. Yesterday at the Junos, Canada's music awards, Arcade Fire again took the Album of the Year statuette — and they did it without any bewildered backlash. This either means that Canadians really are more even-tempered than Americans, or that the Tragically Hip didn't put out an album this year. [Billboard]
