Articles
'The Suburbs' is an incredibly sentimental and nostalgic album, which to some critics made its emotional appeal feel unearned and manipulative. But it also made a heavy impact on fans and - to the surprise of many - won Album of the Year at the 2011 Grammy's. This immensely visceral album triggers a sincere celebration of not formative years spent in a cookie-cutter development, but of feeling self-important, immortal, and desperate to escape. It examines youth and amplifies an innate sense of longing and remembrance. Eric Eidelstein explores this weird, utopic recollection of youth by comparing the album to suburban scenes in film and television.
