I think that by the time the album is released to continuing rave reviews and following their own headlining tour this Fall/Winter that it will be entirely possible that they could hold down Friday night or at the very least split headline Friday with someone equally big. And they would be deserving of this honor.
Having seen them live a few times already I can tell anyone who hasn't seen them that they are stellar live and are a great festival band. Personally I would say that they belong more in a Which LN slot than as a headliner but that's just personal preference.
As far as The Suburbs goes, after 3 full listens I am not immediately blown away in the manner that I was by Funeral and Neon Bible. With the exception of The Suburbs, Empty Room, and Suburban War, most of the album just seems like a retread or continuation of what they have already done. Maybe it will grow on me in time but for right now its not this generations OK Computer or whatever it is the BBC has said about it.
Yeah, I think if expectations of another Funeral are going to become the norm with AF fans, then don't be surprised to see the fans get agitated with the band. Just like how Mars Volta fans got pissed at the band for not coming out with another De-Loused In The Comatorium.
