Great review. There is definitely a haunting, surreal and original sound that emanates from this album. It took a few listens for me to get into, but once I did, it quickly became of a staple of late night car rides on my way home from work. The wind-chime like vocals that jump in during "(Antichrist Television Blues)" are definitely one of my favorite moments in the album as well. Another favorite part of mine is the wall of sound that crashes in, breaking the mellowness of "My Body is A Cage". I could go on forever (like a huge nerd) about how much I love this album but I should stop for the sake of self-respect.

Hell yeah, finally a review of a Arcade Fire, although I have to agree with the very first statement you make Proto. I like Funeral a lot more. I should come as a n interesting note, however, that I am relatively new to Arcade Fire and that I should listen their material more carefully, maybe I can change my mind later.

By the way... Any chance you review Gallowsbird's Bark from The Fiery Furnaces soon?

I fell in love with Arcade Fire by discovering their song "Cold Wind" on the "Six Feet Under" Soundtrack and then proceeded to buy up every thing else available. I think Neon Bible is a better album then Funeral and only because to me it has a much more darker and hopeless scope, which all in all is kind of deceitful seeing as how an album titled "Funeral" should be filled with morose and dark tracks and most are beautiful arrangements of up tempo beats, while "Neon Bible" sounds like it could be a Killers record and is far better and much darker than anything the Killers could ever hope to create. Thanks for this review Proto, Until finding the Arcade Fire I never though a single band could come close ot my loveof Nine Inch Nails... I was wrong.

The American special edition is different to the one the Europeans got, I think. I got it, and it comes with a bunch of flipbooks and stuff, hahaha.

I usually think of the word "grandiose" in terms of negative connotations, but whatever does it for you.
