The Arcade Fire - Cold Wind

Reviewed by Rall on 17th August 2005

Even if this track wasn't called Cold Wind, it would be the sound track to being sat in a big armchair, in front of a log fire wearing a big fluffy jumper and drinking a glass of Bailies. It's snuggalicious. And therefore good, but not very exciting. As such, it's just the right length (I don't know how long exactly, but it's quite short). B-side Brazil is apparently some kind of cover or re-rendition (since the copyright says 1939). Much like the A-side, it does sound like it could have been lifted from some kind of musical, only in this case it probably was.
