I really like this album a lot more than Funeral. Some very, very good songs on it. Doubt it'll be one of my favourites but I was really impressed.

Yeah, but for as indietastic as the Shins are, they debuted at number 2 without a big backlash I believe.

Maybe it will work out like that?

Well I finally got Neon Bible yesterday...the first listen through I wasn't blown away, but I think it's starting to hit me now. I don't know if I'll end up liking this album more than Funeral, but there is something very big about it. Love Intervention, Black Wave/Bad Vibrations, The Well and the Lighthouse, and No Cars Go...oh what a great rerecording might be the best AF song, period. imagine if U2 did that with Mercy!!

My Body is a Cage is pretty amazing as well...very powerful closer. Really there's not a weak track on this album, I just need to listen to it more to give it time to sink in.

I'm glad I have tickets to see them

It took me a while, but I really, really got into (Antichrist Television Blues). I've listened to it about 20 times in the past 2 days.

lol, i did the same thing (well, almost, went w/the non-deluxe version, less so because the extra $2 would break the bank, more because im ocd and the packaging wouldn't fit w/the rest of my cd collection) best day for new releases in a long time, wawaweewa!!

So I'm lazy. So why aren't these dummies playing LA and only San Diego and Berekely? Or Berkley? Or Berkeley? Or however the hell it's spelled.

Well, I bought it today, this afternoon to be exact, and I feel the same way. Not completely blown away . . . . yet.

Maybe it's a grower.

But "Black Mirror" Now this one's a keeper!!!

I couldn't shake the feeling that this was a reincarnation of a Bruce song, somewhere around "Nebraska", so I'm listenting to the Boss' acoustic masterpiece, and there are definitely striking similarities (to me at least) between "State Trooper", "Open All Night" and "(Antichrist Television Blues)".

I swear it reminds me of another Bruce song, but I can't pin it down. Errrrrrrrrrrr! This is going to bug me all night long!

Seeing that Arcade Fire played State Trooper on their last tour, that comes as no surprise.

(Antichrist Television Blues) is fast becoming one of my favorites on the album.

ATB is just great. Regine's vocal solo is amazing, and Win's cooing vocals speaking to the little girl are really well done.

If any of you are attending an AF concert, and wish to write a formal review of the show (that will be sent directly to the band and its camp), please email me!

It's Berkeley I bought the special addition. It's ehhhh for me. I have to give it a few more listens.
