Coyne famously launched a scathing attack on the band back in 2009 in an interview with Rolling Stone when he slammed their 'pompousness' and said they treat their crew 'like shit', adding: "They have good tunes, but they’re pricks."
Now, in a new interview with Rolling Stone, Coyne has discussed his dislike of their 2013 No.1 album Reflektor.
"I think Arcade Fire connecting up with James Murphy felt like two [artists] getting together and saying, 'Let’s make something important', said Coyne. "I don’t really listen to the Arcade Fire on purpose. It’s just not my trip. I’m not really looking for that kind of, 'We’re gonna survive' kind of music."

Another star to attack Arcade Fire recently is Trent Reznor, who when writing a guest column about friend and collaborator David Bowie's comeback album The Next Day, said: "It wasn’t like the Arcade Fire album [Reflektor] and its yearlong rollout, where it was like, 'OK, I get it. You’ve got an album out, you’ve played every TV show in the world'."
We don't think Reflektor is that bad at all. See where it ranked in our top 50 albums of 2013 below.
