Not Only that, they're the second most PLAYED artist of last week, behind the Beatles, even though It shows they are 6th (Number of listeners Vs Tracks Played)
Arcade Fire is the hottest band in the world right now.

The internet has spoken.

I know I contributed to that on Last FM, I've probably listened to Neon Bible 20 times in the last week.

They actually have taken over the entire top 10, Black Wave and Windowsill would be there if they were all tagged properly, so all hail our new over lords

Number 6 in the last.fm charts, all 10 positions in the track charts, number 2 in the UK album chart, number 1 in Ireland, this band rule

Strings make almost anything better...

I'm coming late to this discussion so forgive me if this has already been mentioned (I'm too lazy to check ) but does anyone else notice the "Springsteen-esque" sound of Keep The Car Running and Antichrist Television Blues?

Good, I'm glad I'm not the only one.

I the way that Antichrist just ends... No fade out, nothing just a screeching halt...

I find that incredibly refreshing...

OMG I LOVE THAT TOO! It is awesome. I am loving Black Wave/ Bad Vibrations!! IT is so amazing! The music is so great. I've listened to the CD so much in the past week. I can't get enough of it.

Totally! I can't help but think of Flowers (the Killers) being heavily inspired by the Boss on Sam's Town. I am imagining him listening to this and being comepetely floored by these songs, especially ATB. Arcade Fire capture that urgency of early Boss perfectly. Not that the Killers didn't do a great job on their follow-up. They just didn't nail it like this.

Having listened to it for a full week, I can now say that I really love Neon Bible. Every single song! Funeral had a few stand-out tracks for me, but all of NB is excellent (in my opinion). It really works as an album- the tracklisting really sets a certain mood.

Also, I love that "Antichrist Television Blues" is about Joe Simpson...

Holy Cow! Where does this info come from? I was just listening to this song again last night (I think its my fav off Neon) and I pictured in my mind one of these parents that are milking their kids for all their worth.

I heard the same thing. Don't know if it's true, but that's what I heard.

I like "Neon Bible" a lot. It's definitely more consistent than "Funeral" and pretty much every song is very good, but for me, I don't think there is anything on it that reaches the same heights as the best songs off "Funeral". For me, "Black Mirror" comes the closest.

I think I need to give it a few more listens, but it doesn't sound as diverse or as varied as "Funeral" does to me. I think it's really good, I just don't think it's great.


That being said, I am still excited to see them on June 2nd, because I've never seen them before and I hear they are amazing live.
