Product Description

The second album from Montreal's Arcade Fire exceeds all expectations. With string and orchestral arrangements by two of the band members, "Neon Bible" is full of both half-assed punk rock mistakes and meticulously orchestrated woodwinds. Processed strings and mandolin. Quiet rumbles and loud rumbles. But mostly just eleven songs that the band thinks are really good. The deluxe CD version is packaged in a hinged box with two 32-page flip books designed by the band. The LP is double 180-gram audiophile quality with three sides of music and an etching on the fourth side. The LP also includes a coupon for a free MP3 download of "Neon Bible". Arcade Fire's 2004 debut "Funeral" has scanned over 300,000 copies and is certified platinum in Canada. This is the LP version

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on March 6 2007
Format: Audio CD
Personally, I was terrified as I waited for the Arcade Fire's second album -- so many bands have made exquisite first albums, only to disappoint with the second.

But there are few missteps in the amazing "Neon Bible," which tries out a new sound for the Montreal band -- it sounds darker, eerier, and thoroughly exquisite. They take the chamberpop sound to a stormy cliffside over the ocean.

It opens with steady acoustic guitar, and a swell of windy synth that sounds like waves crashing on the rocks. "I will walk down to the ocean/After waking from the nightmare/No moon, no pale reflection/Black mirror, black mirror," Win Butler murmurs over a rising tide of clashing piano.

They slip into the shimmering rock'n'roll of "Keep The Car Running," which cascades down into a beautiful folky tune wrapped in synth. The songs that follow continue this feeling: the quietly taut title track, ghostly experimental, transcendent little guitar-piano ballads, soaring organ pop, and even a sparkling, catchy indiepop tune or two.

The Arcade Fire obviously took their time crafting this album, and making all the kind of intelligent rock people expect from them. But the sound is entirely different -- it's darker and stranger than its predecessor, as well as sounding a bit more processed.

Granted, I wasn't crazy about the pipe-organ blues of "Intervention." However, the other songs are sheer brilliance musically -- a beautiful thunderstorm of instrumentation, with the sound of a sonic religious experience. Just listen to the crescendo of soaring voices, drums, horns and strings at the end of "No Cars Go."

As for the instrumentation, it's packed in dense, shifting layers.

An absolutely incredible follow up to their previously released 'Funeral'. Making use of a variety of new instruments including heavy percussion, symphony, and an organ, this album retains the signature Arcade Fire feel, though presents us with a whole new sound.

Notable tracks:

-'Black Mirror', dark, though really previews the variety of new musical instruments that are used throughout the album.

-'(AntiChrist Television Blues)' Particularly remeniscient of the raw distinctively indie material on their first, self titled album.

-'No Cars Go', A remix of sorts of the track off their first album. Make no mistake though, the song retains it's feel, though it has been reworked with 'Neon Bible' instruments which serve to indicate the great lengths this band has come in just a few years.

-'My Body is a Cage', Blues, Indie, with the gradually incresing sound of the organ and symphony. Once again, dark, but a really amazing track.

On my first listen of this album, I didn't really pay attention. The I listened and liked it moderately. Then I LISTENED and decided this album is flawless. My initial annoyances were blown away by the sheer scope of the album, and then incinerated by the Fire (zing!). This album is very very good and not even remotely pretentious as some people say.

Easily the best album of the year and arguably the best band out there right now. If you have a chance to see the Arcade Fire live, do it! They are amazingly talented and unique. Most of the band members play 4-5 instruments and they play them with an abundance of conviction and passion. This is a solid album, from front to back.
