Back on November 3, 2010, I wrote how the center of the rock ‘n’ roll universe had shifted north of the border to Canada. Well, the Grammy’s confirmed that last night by awarding its most prestigious award, Album of the Year, to Montreal’s Arcade Fire for its superb album, The Suburbs.
Congratulations to Arcade Fire for a truly classic piece of musical enjoyment and congratulations to the Grammy’s for recognizing that last night. Kudos to both. It was also nice to see my personal choice for best album of 2010 be recognized by other fans of rock ‘n’ roll and of music generally.
