New Arcade Fire for your ears

Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of The Arcade Fire's 2010 release The Suburbs, and they're celebrating the occasion by releasing a deluxe edition with new tracks that you can hear right now, right here.---

The deluxe reissue is streaming in its entirety on The Daily Beast Website, and you can hear the two new songs: "Culture War" and "Speaking in Tongues," which includes vocals by the Talking Heads' David Byrne. There is also an extended take on "Wasted Hours." 

So, what do you think about the new version of The Suburbs? Is the Grammy-winner for "Album of the Year" improved, or is this a cash grab to get people to buy an album they already have?
