“Neon Bible is an excellent album by an excellent...”

Written on: 06/01/2008 by LordBrambleberry (9 reviews written)

Neon Bible is an excellent album by an excellent experimental band, Arcade Fire. After their spectacular debut, "Funeral", no one much thought about them. Now they've got us thinking again.

On "Neon Bible" Win Butlers soulful voice blends with New Wave-ish music and the Hungarian Orchestra to create great tunes. "Black Mirror", the opener and lead single, sounds peculiarly like Echo and the Bunnymen's "Killing Moon", but still has a very nice melody. "Keep the car Running" sounds like nothing… Read Full Review

“This record Arcade Fire, The Neon Bible is a perfect...”

Written on: 06/12/2007 by mather (2 reviews written)

This record Arcade Fire, The Neon Bible is a perfect follow up, so many bands following hype from their first offering fail miserably to adapt and produce meaningful work. Arcade fire are just very good at telling a story, articulate, and damn bright. Intelligible depiction of the modern day world. A veritable orgy of melodies that are extremely thought provoking and inspiring. Uplifting and emotive. I don't mean to gush however I really think that this might be one of the all time greats… Read Full Review

“Arcade Fire should feel pretty pleased with...”

Written on: 03/12/2007 by mr underhill (4 reviews written)

Arcade Fire should feel pretty pleased with themselves. Not only are they one of the most universally acclaimed bands around today, but they are one of the rare few that can genuinely lay claim to doing something different. An unconventional blend of twanging guitars, dischorded harmonicas, creaking accordions, clanking pianos and quivering, sometimes even shrieking, vocals, they manage to sound both really old and completely new.
Perhaps unsurprisingly considering the title, Neon Bible… Read Full Review

Black Ghost 7's Response to mr underhill's Review

Written on: 05/12/2007

Good review, thanks, would appreciate some more about the actual music though, song by song?<br/><br/>perhaps the interpretation of the lyrics leaves room for adjustment. I understand their lyrics as being rather wide and being a non religious Christian myself I would agree to a certain extent, perhaps underneath the critique of mainstream Christianity and religion lies more a longing for true faith and a knowledge of brokenness and discontent with this world, rather than a complete abolition and condemning ...

“I feel this album was well worth my listen, Arcade...”

Written on: 04/06/2007 by Lillyflowers (1 review written)

I feel this album was well worth my listen, Arcade Fire are one of the bands which we should look up to and find inspiration from as there needs to be more bands thinking on the same wave length. High points of this album include listening to Ocean of Noise and Black Mirror. Defintely worth recommending and deserves its hype… Read Full Review

“I would hazard a guess that this is going to be Album...”

Written on: 09/03/2007 by Mindy (82 reviews written)

I would hazard a guess that this is going to be Album of the Year on most critical lists come December, and I will probably be in full agreement. The Arcade Fire are simply the most exhilirating and important band in popular music right now and this album is an absolutely heady rush of hooks, strange noises and musings about the importance of hope in what is often the despair and futility of moden life.

I heard someone say that this record sounds like it was made by a bunch of whinging… Read Full Review

Mr Underhill's Response to Mindy's Review

Written on: 03/12/2007

I think you analysed the album really well, though I could never agree that The Arcade Fire are like a bunch of angsty 15 year olds. I think there's real wisdom in their lyrics.
