Congratulations to the Arcade Fire on winning the 2011 Polaris Music Prize for their album, The Suburbs!

Would they? Wouldn't they? The summer has been filled considerable speculation as how any of the other nine nominees could possibly challenge a band that had already won some of the most prestigious music awards on the planet, including a Grammy and a Brit Award.

Well, there's nothing left to do but argue endlessly about whether or not they deserved it. Actually, deserved it isn't the right word here... I should say deserved it MORE than any of the other artists nominated. For now though, we invite you to check out everything we've ever done with Arcade Fire over the past few years.

I have to admit I am a little disapointed that Arcade Fire won the prize. I have been a fan for many years and love their music but I don't beleive that Sububs was that great of an album, yet alone their best work.
